    I'm new to TiVo and this community, so I hope I'm posting in the right forum.

    We've got the Roamio that supports OTA TV. Right now, it's its connected to our wifi network.

    I've got the MLB.TV Spring Training package. I've watched games the last two days and at the end of both games I've received the following message on my screen:

    [​IMG]

    The only way I can find to clear this message is to restart the Roamio. I haven't run across anything on the remote that clears this message.

    Does anyone else get this message? If so, how do you clear it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ron

    I did see that once. Playing a recorded program cleared it for me.

    I don't use that app, but have you tried pressing Clear button?

    Different question but same app - it just doesn't work. Games play fine on my laptop so no issues with router / ISP but on my Tivo I can't get a single game to load. I get the loading message and then ultimately the Tivo reboots.

    I thought I saw a similar thread on TC last season but a search didn't help. Any thoughts?

    I just watched the end of the Nats/Yankees game and didn't see what you posted above, it just went to a "this game has completed" screen. I left it there for about 5 mins and then just navigated back to the game listings. Nothing odd, it all operated as it should.

    Maybe something with your provider or with the channel sourcing the broadcast of the game you were watching.

    This is the first time I've used to TiVo MLB.tv app and have to say I'm impressed with the picture quality, much better than I thought it would be and although I haven't checked yet, it's definitely better than it looked last year on the PS3. Maybe it's because there's a light load on the servers as it's spring training, I'm hoping not though as it looks very good.

    I'm brand new at TiVo, so I may have something screwed up. I will see what I can figure out as I go.

    I really like the MLB.TV app too. Picture quality is excellent. App is very responsive. I just need to figure out what's causing the message to remain on the screen after the game I'm watching ends.

    I had intended to watch a spring training game on Monday when I was snowed in. Got the same message. Call CS, and after 10-15 of useless rote troubleshooting, the rep found out that spring training games are not available through Tivo, only regular season games. She didn't know why.

    If anyone from Tivo is reading this message, please explain why.

    Is it a case of you having to have full MLB Premium (which includes the spring training games) for it to work on a TiVo? Ie, is it the accounting is such that just the spring training package won't work?

    I've had no problems; I have MLB Premium.

    I specifically bought the MLB.TV Spring Training package that was available earlier this year. I wanted to try it before I committed to a full season.

    I intend to buy the MLB.TV premium package before the season starts.

    Good to know. I'll try it again. MLB through Tivo is one of the major reasons I upgraded to Roamio in the first place.

    I have the Premium package and Spring Training games on my Roamio are fantastic...the app is awesome and fast (unlike the P4)

    To be honest the app ran just fine on the P4 but was just really sow last season...but the games still looked great

    I have been watching games on the roamio. When I watch a game, I hit the info button,but I can't go back to watching full screen. Which button do I press? Clear doesn't work. Any ideas? Thanks.

    ok so I'm wrong...for some reason I can only watch about half the spring training games (there's no rhyme or reason as to which ones are allowed)

    I did pay for MLB.TV premium

    I believe that you can do it two ways, Info (again) or Zoom.

    The games that are listed with the message "you are not authorized" is because there was no tv broadcast for that game that day.

    Ha, that's funny...I just assumed all games are televised even though it's just spring training.

    So am I the only one whose TiVo crashes almost every time I use the mlb.tv app? I have tried using it both last Fall and earlier this week and it almost always crashes the TiVo and forces a reboot within an hour of starting. I have just gone back to my Apple TV because it interrupts recordings and is way too disruptive when the crash happens.
