HD quality of mlb.tv via Roku player virtually is the same as watching it on directv. Just need a really fast connection. I have 22/5 tier from comcast but according to speedtest my downloads are 30 megs/second

Uh, no.

Not unless you call a slight strobe affect virtually the same or bad edges or mosquito noise around action virtually the same.

For a small TV, sure. Looks GREAT on my iPhone. But on my 50 inch SXRD, looks only close on still pictures.

But as I type this, I am watching a replay of the Phillies/DBacks and just seeing strobing on Chris Young rocking in the batters box, hardly high level action.

BTW, I have 25 down service from Fios.

It is watchable but to compare it to the DirecTV feed is a stretch at best.

I just picked up an LG BD570 Blu-Ray player for my living room. Much to my surprise, this player had an MLB.tv application loaded. I activated my subscription and thus far I have been pleased with the PQ.

I know I am missing out on the game mix channel, but have no regrets for getting MLB.TV this season.

I have been looking through these forums for an answer to my issue with MLBTV through PlayOn. Namely, the bottom third of the display is cut off which prevents viewing of graphics. I have spent time with PlayOn, and they say they are passing the complete video just as I would see it on my monitor. But this is not what I see when viewing on HR20-700 through PlayOn's MLB module. Picture quality is fine, but it drives me crazy that I can't see all the picture. I suspect that it is something that the HR is doing, and I see some cropping on HULU also, but not this much. Anyone else seeing this problem? I have tried all settings as to resolution, screen ratio, etc., nothing helps.
