    Originally used the ESPN 3 site and it was not watchable (was so slow and video useless) but they just redid the site and their media player and it now works great with the TP. So now...I have another use for the TP. I just wanted to let people know that it now is functional with the TP.

    I only gave it about 10 min or so but i noticed I can't get above 1 bar in quality despite my fast internet connection. Is this a hardware issue and if so, will overclocking help? Does anyone get a clear picture?

    ESPN3 replays work very well for me with 4 out of 5 bars on the quality scale and look great.

    Unfortunately ESPN3 live events frame drop at the higher quality levels and it eventually automatically winds up on the 2 of 5 bars quality setting. It's basically so blocky that it's unwatchable.

    This is on a 6 Mb/s DSL line. My PC gets 5 out of 5 bars on the quality settings on both ESPN3 live events and replays and look great.

    A speedtest at speakeasy.net/speedtest from the Touchpad yields the same results as the PC. TP is on my wireless N with very good signal strength.

    Hulu, CNN and a bunch of other sites work very well, it's only the live ESPN3 events I'm having an issue with.

    OC @ 1.5 GHz with the logging hacks etc. And the browser hack for Hulu which identifies it as a Windows browser. I manually did the browser hack with the sed command initially posted but had the ESPN3 issue before that too (no change).

    I'd be very interested in how ESPN3 is working on the TP for other folks and extremely grateful for any suggestions. I have no clue why the replay and live feed behavior is so different.

    Anyone able to get ESPN3 working (via login to authenticate? - AT&T)

    Keeps saying that:
    "An Attempt to authenticate with a client certificate failed.
    A Valid client certificate is required to make this connection"

    Will try again on my home network (AT&T) which shouldnt ask for this, but was working fine before on this network and many other requiring the login step via AT&T.
