    I see the OP's message in a dialog box right after trying to pick the game. If I choose a game that's not listed on my pc as an available mlb.tv game, then the tivo app can't play it and I get the unauthorized message.

    What I'm really miffed at is a spoiler bug when playing an archived game. The skip to inning shows you if the bottom of the 9th was not needed (i.e. by being blanked out or not), and so you then know that the home team won, though the scores are not shown. When the bottom of the 9th is available, you know the home team had to bat in the 9th, which can spoil it a bit too. This is not an issue with the pc version which never shows the bot 9th any differently.:mad:

    I experienced a few other bugs while playing around and once it crashed the Tivo.

    One time I had a Yankee game playing, while the jump to inning and game info was on a different game. This occurred while I was checking out the resume feature and was switching between a few games to see if it remembered where I last was. Interestingly, it remembered the position across crashes. I guess that's a plus.

    The picture is great :up: and the audio glitches I got during the post season package seem to have been fixed once SP started :up:. But I still would like a way of choosing the resolution I want.

    Geek Hill,...
    I never had this issue until yesterday, when our Roamio rebooted twice while watching MLB. What was different yesterday was more people using our Internet connection simultaneously than usual in mid-day on our microwave Internet link.

    I suspect that these reboots are occurring when network congestion interferes with smooth data flow. Of course the code should ideally have better error recovery than that, this problem is an opportunity for TiVo to improve.

    Thank (insert deity) we have a Roku and an Apple TV and Macs and tablets so I can still watch baseball!

    I have called Tivo and MLB about the bottom of the ninth thing and obviously they don't care as its been a full season now and nothings been done. This program is good because its the only way i can watch The Red Sox, but if there were any other option i wouldnt pay for MLB.

    :up::up::up:Thank you rocket777!!!

    I got the message again twice this weekend, once on Saturday and once on Sunday. The Cubs were playing "split-squad" games, and I know I attempted to tune to both games each day, in order to figure out which one was blacked out.

    I will test that scenario again if I have a chance to see if that is indeed the problem.
