    Is anyone here watching MLB.tv on their MBA rev. A? I'm thinking about buying a refurb but want to make sure it runs MLB.tv's new video player, especially the HD feeds. Thanks.

    It runs the nexdef feed very nicely. Of course the temp goes way up but it doesn't skip.

    The problem I do find is that watching a game on full screen won't work. The video skips badly. If you stay to the smaller default screen, it runs well.

    Aaaah... that's not good. I'm currently using a 4-year-old PowerBook hooked up to my LCD TV. Next Def skips like crazy, but regular flash works fine in full-screen. I need full screen. Thanks for the info.

    In that small window though, the HD games look amazing.

    Apparently this isn't an MBA issue. The full screen nexdef isn't working on any computers. On the mlb forum everyone and thier brother is complaining about skipping on full screen mode.

    Full screen works fine on my iMac C2D 2.4 Ghz. But the nexdef plugin though hogs up so much of my system's resources. I've got 4 GB of RAM, there's no reason my system should slow down so much.

    Full screen works fine on my late 07 MB. The games look great.

    I have no experience using mlb.tv on a rev. A MBA but I do think it would get extremely hot.
