For as long as I can remember (years), if you pause (for more than 20 seconds) a baseball game when watching MLB TV, the whole PS3 unit locks up. None of the remote keys work. You're only option is to force shutdown using the power button on the unit.
Does this happen to anyone else?
Yes, sometimes, this app is and will likely always be faulty...it's a long season. It has happened to me, but I don't even pause unless its a must. MLB.tv takes some patience on PS3...there will be nights it just dont work, and some nights where there is video of the game and no audio.
Yes. This happens to my on both of my PS3 units. Other than that it has worked flawlessly until yesterday when it would stop to catch up on the stream more that it would play. I did a speed test on my computer and I could download at 12 Mbps so it wasn't due to lack of bandwidth on my end. If it doesn't improve, I won't be renewing my subscription next year.
