I noticed the same thing when I was using silverlight. Slightly clearer picture but the action seemed just a little bit choppy....guessing that's related to the frame rates you're referring to.

Oh well, glad I can still watch 800k through VLC.

Yea but I am paying 120 bucks for this shoddy product. It would be nice if I could get a better picture on my 27" hd tv . I know its not gonna be close to HD but the Silverlight looks nice just performs poorly
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I am tryin to check out the Silverlight but when i try to install it says my computer's browser/operating system configuration is not supported. I dont undertand because i have up to date firefox and am using windows xp sp2 with a system surpassing the miniumum system specs. Any ideas?

I am thinking of trying this for a month and have a couple of questions. Do they automatically charge you every month even if you do not sign up for the whole year? If you sign up monthly do you get it for a full month (30 days) no matter when you sign up?
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

I'm trying to open in VLC the exact same way as last night. It will open but the video is completely distorted....audio is fine. Is anyone else seeing this?

Same here. I actually can't get it to work with Firefox at all, VLC or no VLC. Works in IE.

Interesting...I didn't try IE but I did try opening the stream in WMP standalone and it's working now. Maybe they were unhappy with how happy their customers (here) were so they decided to put an end to that nonsense. :-B

I'm having the same problems...

works terrible in firefox

works in IE, but "full screen" only takes up 2/3 of the screen.

when i open in VLC, the video looks like it's scrambled.

anyone have solutions for any of this? just want to watch the game full-screen!

Use Media Player classic if VLC is messed up. My conspiracy theory which may or may not be true is that they know how to include something that will jack up VLC.

Being that Media Player Classic is probably coded very similar to WMPlayer I assume they can't screw that up.

Either way MPC works great although now I can't stream the games back through my ports so that I can watch it on a phone.
