    Stream is good, very consistent, however, appears to be the ESPN HD stream in a 4:3 window

    CARRIER: sonic.net DSL (final mile is leased from PacBell) 6MB Down/0.6MB Up - Apple Time Machine base station NAT router/Wi-Fi base
    PC: Apple MacBook Core 2 Duo 2GHz via 802.11n
    OS: Mac OS X 10.5.4
    BROWSER: FireFox 3.0.1

    No problems. Even accidentally running it simultaneously with AIR client. Two hi res feeds working great. Oddly, even though running one stream took half my CPU, my CPU is only 3/4 utilized with two of them.

    Switching channels works. There are of course no highlights (was trying that in the wrong window before, the app wondow).

    Very good. This works well also. I'll try to get on the stress thing tomorrow. I won't be at home to watch it, but I can start it.

    Again works great. Doug, other admins, Do you want multiple machine tests in a single edited post or multiple posts? I dual boot most of my machines so I will test all OS unless you tell me linux testing is not wanted.

    Works great as long as it's the only thing running. Video is a little grainy but not horrible for what it's worth.

    Works beautiful! Minor occasional audio drops likely due to network, laptop cpu not breaking a sweat or coming up out of low power mode.

    Looking forward to running the WWW client tomorrow during the day at work. I work for a small company and I know our IT guy (yes, our IT dept is one guy) fairly well. Can't wait to see if the streaming app is enough to make him take notice. I'm not going to say anything and wait to see if he notices. I'm guessing the bandwidth isn't significant enough for him to notice, what do you guys think?

    * WWW Client
    * Windows Vista Ultimate
    * AMD X2 2.5 GHZ, 4 Gigs memory
    * IE7
    * Qwest
    * 12 MBPS/896 KBPS

    * After over an hour I have not found any issue to report so far. Video quality is great in both medium and high bandwidth. No stutter or lag experienced. Like the ability to rearrange the game boxes. Like the ability to get stats without having to switch to that game. Everything responds very well so far.
    I did find myself wanting to resize the picture to something bigger or full screen though.
    This may be wishful thinking, but I wonder if a feature similar to player tracker can be integrated with Supercast. On some Sundays my wife and kids are home and I give them reign to the TV.I watch on the computer at that point. Would love to be able to have player info pop up on screen as well.
    Will test some more later and also participate in the load test.

    * Computer OS - Mac OS X 10.5.4
    * Browser - FireFox 3
    * ISP - AT&T DSL Xtreme
    * ISP Speeds - 6MB/sec down

    I usually only notice this when the program first opens... but while it is buffering the default feed... there will be a quick blip of audio... then audio and video as normal a few seconds later...

    This has happened to me using the WWW client and the AIR client.

    PC: HP/dv1040 Laptop

    BROWSER: !E7

    Watch the game last night on / off and left the app running overnight. Tried to start playing again this morning for stress test. Wouldn't play anything. Closed app.

    Upon application restart, it only goes into taskbar. Will close everything and reboot.

    Upon application uninstall / re-install still exhibits same.

    Maryland,...
    Just joined the group.

    I'm running the Air Client and the web ap at the same time from my office computer, with excellent results--smoth video, and clear sound. I had to turn the audio down low, because I was running different feeds. When I was running the same game on both apps, the lag was very brief--sounds like an echo chamber. Not even close to the lag between the dvr and an OTA TV.

    Enterprise network with a backbone connection
    Speed: 27305 kb dl
    16676 kb up
    HP7800p
    Intel Duo 2.33GHz

    I will try this on my home set-up later. Not till after the stress test, though.
