    Client: AIR 1.0.1
    OS: Windows Vista Ultimate
    ISP: Qwest
    ISP Speed: 12 MBPS

    Notes/Issues: All active feeds play fine. As noted though, most feeds are either a different game or the RZC. Only some feeds are the actual games shown. Playback is smooth. Audio is great. Highlights all play. Audio is low on highlights and audio on six of them are not there. Two of them have garbled audio, the rest work fine.
    Stats all update accurately, but some lag behind the action by up to a minute.
    Mini mode works great. Full screen mode works, but picture quality is bad. In full screen mode I selected highlights. The highlights box appeared out of the right side. Highlights playback, but does not interrupt main audio like it does in standard mode. I had to mute the main audio to hear the highlights. The highlights audio was very low though while in full screen mode. Same audio results like posted above (6 no audio, 2 garbled, rest ok.)

    Edit: Wanted to add a request that flexpackman brought up. Would also like to see the Now Playing banner disappear and not hang around while tuned to that feed.

    AIR Client 1.0.1
    OS = WinXP/SP3 3.0G HT CPU 2GB Ram ATI 256M Video HD2400 Pro
    ISP = TWC RoadRunner
    Speed 8MBS/.5MBS (Steady over several hours)

    Looks like the servers are down at the moment.....

    Same issues as reported as others on feeds being switched and some channels with no audio (assume all to be server side issues).

    I've beat it to death, especially the highlights, and things have been stable.

    Will make a cosmetic remark that I don't think has been mentioned. When you are watching the "Now Playing" game, the Quarter & Time Remaining gets blocked out by the "Now Playing" banner. Yes, I know it gets shown by the networks on the Graphics overlay, EXCEPT when you really want to know, like during a commercial break.... Might consider having the Now Playing banner disappear after awhile and leave the Now Playing Game panel highlighted. Just a thought.....

    Otherwise, :joy:

    AIR client was running great on the Jacksonville-Washington game until I changed channels. After that, no feeds would load at all, not even the Red Zone or the Jax-Wash game I had been watching just fine. After shutting down and restarting the client, all feeds seem to be loading and playing as normal.

    WinXP Home
    AMD Athlon64 1GB
    Comcast standard

    Still loads 1.0.0< wont download update< logs in ok but wont display anything.

    Help just goes to the Directv website, no specific help.

    Switched to medium res, channels seem to be coming on slowly. Green Bay game is a widescreen game, but being squished to 4:3 in full screen mode.

    * AIR Client - 1.0.1 updated from within 1.0.0
    * Computer OS - Vista Ultimate 64
    * ISP - Cablevision/Optimum Online BOOST
    * ISP Speeds 30 down/5 up

    Several feeds mislabeled as described by others.
    Client side panel updates nicely as events occur in the games.
    Pounded on it every way I could think of to create issues with hightlights, did not experience any. No lockups, no glitches at all.
    Kudos to DirecTV - everything "just worked".

    Watching the TN-GB game. Video for the two available highlights play fine and the main window audio mutes, but the audio of the highlights does not play even with the volume slider of the highlight window all the way up.

    Nothing showing on the KC/STL game, but I just got online. I checked a couple of others and nothing.

    I did run the CAR/PIT highlights and they are working. They changed quickly. I went to the redzone channel and moved through several hightlights and they all seemed to work well.

    Is there anything on any of the channels, now? All I am getting is a black screen with a spinning load circle.

    * ISP Speeds (if known): 12Mbps/1Mbps

    Watched the Minn/Cowboys game. Looked good in standard screen. Choppy in full screen mode. Video quality was set to medium. Only locked up a couple of times. Waited for about a minute each time and everything started up again. I was able to switch between games without too much delay.

    Watched part of the Minnesota and Dallas game earlier. The signal was steady, but picture was very blurry when full screen. Medium quality. Standard size looked fine.
