mlbtv troubleshooting

Postby INKcogKNEEdough » Thu Apr 06, 2006 1:11 am

I just purchased the mlbtv thing on the computer. WHen i click on a game i want the game isnt loading though. the scoreboard portion on the right showing the score of the game i am intrested in is there, but on the left where (i think) the picture is supposed to be it is just blank. There IS what looks to me like a rewind button and a stop(or maybe it is a pause) button(like you would see on a vcr) but clicking on them isnt doing anygthing either. down at the bottom of the game screen the word "stopped' pops up after a few seconds as well but i cant get it to play. Any body know what i am doing wrong? Or know of a link to contact them? i am looking on the site for one or a FAQ troubleshooting section but i dont see on yet.

thanks in advance for any help

I also just purchased MLBtv. I did so because I'm a student that frequents libraries and computer labs at all hours, so its nice to have the games going in the background. As such, I'm always on pretty updated computers so I don't run into this problem. It works real smooth for me.

Maybe your windows media software isn't up to date? Try installing the latest version/plugin for your browser.
