Re: MLB Freezing & Choppy v3

About an hour ago, I logged into MLB TV on my laptop, same WiFi. Happy to report my problem is solved. It’s flawless - more than an hour with not one interruption.  Normal audio, HD too, unlike my old picture tube low res TV. I started watching MLB TV on my laptop because of the same issues on my R...

Re: MLB.TV fast forward

How do you control the fast forward to get where you want to be?  It seems ridiculous to have no feedback. I've not found anyway to get feedback as to how far I have fast forwarded in MLB on Roku. I find that fast forwarding five seconds on the first (slowest) fast forward speed advances close to t...

Re: MLB video choppy

Don't hold your breath waiting for MLB or Roku to even fix this issue, let alone a quick fix. This has been going on since the beginning of Spring Training game broadcasts this year. There is a thread on this issue that has been extended several times due to reaching the maximum number of messages a...

Re: MLB Freezing & Choppy v3

I think the problem is that MLB is not able to maintain a stable streaming bandwidth and this manifests in different ways on different devices. Running MLB's bandwidth test I have had results ranging from 700 Kbps to over 15,000 Kbps. On the Roku 3 bandwidth drops cause pauses, dropped frames and je...

Re: MLB.TV audio overlay

I have a Roku model 4630X and MLB.TV app 5.1 build 2018032201. I know in the past I was able to watch a TV feed while listening to a radio feed of the same game. This no longer appears in the game options. I can only watch the Home or Away feed or listen to a radio feed. Has the previous functional...

Re: MLBTV Freezing and Choppy v2

I also was having trouble with stuttering and freezing during streaming using a Roku 2. I bought a Roku Ultra 4K/HDR/HD unit and the problems disappeared. YMMV I took a different approach. I set up a home theater mini PC for online streaming and have chucked my Roku 3. MLB was the only thing I ever...

Re: MLBTV Freezing and Choppy v2

A solution to this issue may well be beyond Roku's control and they do seem to have left it to MLB to resolve it. Nevertheless, it is likely that Roku will suffer the biggest loss from this issue because it is manifest on their platform. I have several options for watching MLB, my tablet and phone, ...

Re: MLBTV Freezing and choppy.

I have been in contact with MLBTV several times for over a month on this issue. I'm coming to the conclusion that they either don't have the expertise to figure out how to fix it or they have no intention of fixing it. I've pretty much abondoned my Roku 3 except for MLBTV since I got a smart 4K TV a...

Re: MLBTV Freezing and choppy.

I just received word that MLBTV is still working on the issue.  For future inquiries about this issue, you can contact MLBTV directly. Please don't let this issue drop. I have contacted MLBTV a number of times on this issue since the first week of March and have received nothing that has helped to ...

Re: MLBTV Freezing and choppy.

This seems to be some sort of audio/video sync issue.  Watching the Indians game today, I saw all kinds of stuttering.  Switched to audio track 3 (radio), and the stuttering disappeared.   Went back to the TV broadcast audio, and the stuttering came back.   Then later on a different Roku in another...

Re: MLBTV Freezing and choppy.

Thanks. Also forgot to ask: We need approximate date/time you first noticed the issue. I've had this issue since day 1 of spring training this year and it has been an issue every game I have watched. Right now I am watching the live stream of the Pirates at Tigers game and am experiencing the issue...

Please post the following info: ⋅ Channel version (Home 3x, Up 2x, Left, Right, Left, Right, Left) ⋅ What is the serial number of the box? (Found on the bottom of the unit labeled ‘SERIAL NO’ and in Settings -> About, ‘Serial number’.) ⋅ What software version is the bo...

Uninstall app.  Unplug the Roku.  Reboot your router/modem.  Wait for internet to come back up, then plug in the Roku.  Re-add channel.

Let us know the results.


That's the same advice that MLB.com gave me but it did not resolve the issue.

Re: MLBTV Freezing and choppy.

Yes, I'm experiencing those same issues too with MLB on Roku 3. I have been resorting to using hdmi output from my notebook pc to the TV and getting a smooth video stream but the MLB web site doesn't have the navigation controls that the Roku app has.

Re: Netflix Download Speed - Roku vs. TV

The Roku devices never seem to show full network speed. However, remember that Netflix tops out at 16 Mbps at the highest, so you're still fine. I've seen similar speed discrepancies on my Roku players, but I've also played YouTube 4K videos with the stats window visible, and have seen well over 40...
