If you install the new Playon roku private channel. MLB is on Playon along with NHL. The NHL side works just fine. So this would be a second avenue to use MLB on roku. Though you will need to run Playon on a PC running on the same network as roku. Though you can use other devices besides a PC such as some gaming cosoles. either way your roku remote will still be the controller. Check Playon for details, specs needed, etc. NHL archives works fine. Regular season has not started yet, but based on the other Playon channels working fine for me I would expect live NHL games next week to work just fine via Playon/roku. Might want to give that a try for MLB maybe it will work better then the official roku MLB channel.
Yep, one day till end of season and I am having the same exact problems tonight. Some nights good, some bad. This is a roku software issue tonight since my box froze and needed reboots. Other times it is the stream and will reload.
Anyway my PS3 even if it has a stream issue will reload twice as quick and it never crashes like the roku. Also when at its peak performance the roku has slightly less pic qual than the PS3.
I am looking for a another device for a new home theater and sadly as much as I try to make myself like roku, I cant do it. The price being $99 instead of PS3 $299 is the only thing the roku does better. Roku equals sub par performance and lack of features (like missing DLNA).
