    AIR Client 1.0.0
    Mac OS X 10.5.4
    24" iMac (2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2 GB)
    Safari (3.1.2)
    Comcast (6 Mbps/1.5 Mbps)

    FWIW, I'm at 1920x1200 and FULL Screen mode give me a 4:3 image, not widescreen. So, I'm not sure if NR4P is referring to a widescreen (16:9) or 4:3 image...?

    Widescreen for the game menu at the bottom, 4:3 for the game video here, with pillar boxes. 1080p mode from HTPC.

    AIR Client 1.0.0
    WinXP SP3
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66 Ghz, 2GB RAM

    Great, no issues! Streaming high quality WWW and AIR simultaneously with no issues on either client.

    Has anyone played with the ALWAYS ON TOP Setting for mini-mode? I just got back tonight so haven't even tried the new client yet.

    AIR Client 1.0.0
    OS = WinXP/SP3 3.0G HT CPU 2GB Ram ATI 256M Video HD2400 Pro
    ISP = TWC RoadRunner
    Speed .8MBS/.5MBS (Steady over several hours)

    Other than what appears to be server loading that caused sporadic streaming earlier in the evening, the client is working very well.

    Again thanks for the inclusion of the "Always on Top" for the mini screen mode.

    Found one cosmetic issue that may be a line limit problem in the highlights selection list. The lines ran together in the second highlight.

    See attached screen-shot.


    Edit: The problems with the audio slider being off when switching to highlights I reported on Monday appears to be fixed. Exercised it many times and worked fine.

    It works like you'd expect, nice. I only wish you could resize the window, but I don't seem to be able to.

    Win XP, Air Client 1.0.0

    Yes. Works fine. Even stays over my taskbar.

    I finally got into Da Bear game. Seems like the mini-mode "Always on top" should not be a sub-menu if it is the only item.

    Can not get "play all" highlights to work. I can play them individually...but not all at once.

    AIR 1.0.0.

    Windows Vista Ultimate

    Qwest 12 MBPS

    Around 8.40p the video stopped again. Could watch the Red Zone, but the game would just be a black screen. Still can not get video.

    Video back up at 8.47p.

    Update just ran the Air Client on my Dell Dimension 2400 desktop running Windows Vista Home Basic and I am seeing the NY CBS on the Red Zone but when I go to the Bears game the video never loads and the NY CBS continues to play.

    AIR Client 1.0.0
    XP Home SP3
    Dell 1.60 GHz 1 GB memory
    Time Warner Roadrunner 6 MB

    Looking good.

    One audio oddity: When watching the highlights in standard screen (individually and Play All), the sound on the main screen turns off and the highlight audio kicks on.

    However, in full screen mode, both audios play at the same time unless I turn one off. Additionally, when I run Play All on the highlights in full screen mode, if I turn off the main screen sound, it turns itself back on when the next highlight clip starts. This is repeatable.

    * Client: AIR
    * Computer: Dell Core Duo 2.2Ghz 2GB RAM
    * OS: WinXP Pro SP2
    * Browser: Firefox 3.0.1
    * ISP: BellSouth/AT&T 3.0

    Game and Red Zone both look good in standard, full and mini modes. Mini mode always on top seems to work as expected.
    (I couldn't get the game to play on the AIR client, only the Red Zone)

    Video still jumping briefly to bottom right when escaping from full screen then centering correctly.

    - AIR Client
    - Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit
    - Charter 5mb/256kb

    Client works well and the video quality is very nice. However I can not view the football game, all I get is a black screen no matter what video quality I choose. I can watch the Redzone channel which is showing CBS. The highlights work well, I can view most of them without problems. I like the fact when you start a highlight the audio in the main channel is muted until the highlight finishes. Also you can replay a highlight after you view it which is an improvement. However in full screen mode when you play a highlight the main audio does not mute automatically, but as compared to the past the main audio can be muted manually while playing a highlight.

    Edit: I can now get the game and it looks good.

    * Client: AIR Client 1.0.0
    * Computer: Dll SC420 3GB RAM, Radeon X1550 video (1440x900)
    * OS: Windows XP Pro SP3
    * ISP: Comcast 16/2

    Just got upgraded to the 1.0.0 client, was using the 0.2.4 this afternoon for the stress testing. No discernable changes in video other than the new menu options. Full screen is showing 4:3 letterboxed for me. I can sort of run 1920x1200, but my monitor can't really display it properly without scrolling. I need to tweak it a bit.

    Cedar Park,...
    AIR 1.0.0
    Roadrunner Turbo 22/2
    PC 1 - P4 3.2 XP Pro
    PC 2 - Quad 6600 Vista Ultimate 64 bit

    Upgraded both systems to 1.0. Nothing running on Red Zone but hitting Play All on the highlights plays all clips in order. Guess I missed the game.
