awaiting priviliges!!!!

going on day 3 now that every time I try to find a game i get the “awaiting privileges” notice. I have quit the build, unplugged completely. Unplugged modem, did a system reboot, uninstalled the game entirely and reinstalled twice…and finally restored to factory settings and downloaded the game again. Nothing works. Anybody else having this problem or did 343 just make my mind up for me about returning this piece of junk.

awaiting privileges is that its checking you’re xbox live gold, check that you currently have gold and if thats not the issue then it has bugged itself up
