But I know the other night (I guess it probably was the 16th) I was watching the free Yankees game in Chrome but it wouldn't let me watch it in xbmc because it didn't have the free game marking next to it and it said not authorized. Tomorrows free game does show Phili @ SD currently.
Yeah, the last update addressed some issues with the game listings. Let me know If you have anymore weirdness.

The quality setting in the browser shows full bars and the top slider is marked to NexDef, but the stream is only 540p, same as what I'm getting in xbmc. I have a 20 mbps connection so I don't know why I'm not getting the HD stream. Is it working for everyone else?
Also, I have a question about this xbmc app. I have it set to the highest quality but sometimes I will have buffering issues or it will completely kick me off the stream and I will have to click on it again to reconnect. As I said before, I have a fast connection so I'm assuming this is happening because of MLB.tv servers? I know they use adaptive bitrate streaming and the same thing happens with the ESPN addon I get kicked off occasionally even though I have sufficient bandwidth. It's almost like they don't want to keep you on the highest quality for an especially long time. And since the quality doesn't dynamically switch in xbmc you just get kicked off instead. Does this ever happen to you guys?
I definitely know what you mean with the ESPN add-on. I don't think I've experienced the same with this add-on. Yes sometimes streams do drop for me but it doesn't seem* bandwidth related. Do you think lowering the bitrate/quality add-on setting improves stability? The little bit I've used the flash player in a browser, I also had some drops.
