martyyn: I've watched a couple of games on this now and I'm still disappointed.
The first and second games were blocky, jittery and it wouldn't stick to the 3000kbps I set it at. Wouldnt even stay at 1600. Auto saw it regularly drop to 800.
I saw it mentioned elsewhere that IE was better. I used that for the third game and it sat at 3000kbps as requested and although the picture quality wasn't great it was still jittery but at least it was a constant stream.
I still had a headache after watching though.
Then yesterday I watched the Sunderland - Arsenal game, again in IE but this time I tried turning the hardware acceleration off in the flash window (as I had read elsewhere). But it was back to all the original problems. It wouldn't stick to 3000kbps, the jerkiness was more often that not and I almost gave up half way through.
I've tried to keep up with this thread but I doubt I've read everything. Is there are definitive answer on which browser to use etc ? Or will nothing change because the initial unrest has died down ?
Is your experience bad for wathcing live games? Or on Demand games?
I am happy with my experience thus far(although there is always room for improvement), but that is I have watch 2 liverpool games on demand, and was happy with this service.
Having said that, I did watch the ireland game LIVE and this was good 50% of the time, the other 50% was okay but I would not be happy to pay for this. For the 50% experience that was not good, I'm sure there would have been an alternative source out there for free, which is wat I would be used to doing before PLP.
I have been using Firefox and on ADSL with Orcon. And I don't have a HDTV in the house so I suppose I am not that fussy as some here on the quality.
