I've been using this Beta test version, and it's wonderful, with one exception: this is obviously being streamed via an IP connection, and will occasionally buffer. When you log in, i buffers. So, by the time you're watching the game, it is running anywhere from 45 seconds to up to 3 minutes behind real-time, which ruins it for people like me who also follow their games via the MLB Gameday pages on the internet. This feed needs to be real-time, not up to 3 minutes behind.
