4 days left on a very happy beta installation.

Since MLTV became disfunctional this has become my mode of operation.

It would be nice to have a permanent install please.......

MLTV disfunctional??

It is alive and well here...what's disfunctional?

We are getting closer to releasing this. Still in process though.

Send email to dave at cinemaronline dot com for a MLBeyondTV beta plugin extension license.

Any other feedback??

Are you using the default scenes or have you done work on your own?

Has it been reliable? How are you using it? Everyone in the family?

Thanx for the updates.

we're using the new suite of scenes that arrived with mlbtv....wasn't a need to re-do.

In fact, I've been working on new screen designs that borrow from the btv set.

No complaints....othe than it can be a bit slow at times....but with all the data etc, it's not objectionable.

family is happy with it. Everyone has found it usable. Very reliable.

Basically worked out of the box, refinements since then but in my opinion, top notch. It's a perfect compliment to the ml suite.

highly recommended

Yes, the Beyond TV API calls are a bit slow themselves, so when you add the MLClient --> MLBeyondTV --> BTV Web server --> BTV interaction, that will make things slower than the native BTV UI.

Then there are the trade-off between accuracy (using the latest information) versus speed (using cached data), as well as efficiency (re-using/re-deleting the same ML variable over and over) versus speed (pre-filling hundreds or thousands of ML variables without disposing of them after use)... ;)

If there are specific areas that you find slower, I could take a look at them, but I'm not sure that I can make much speed improvements...
