And it's happening again tonight for the Red Sox game against the Rays, where audio for a Spanish broadcast is bleeding through the English broadcast (in contrast to an SAP option). Comcast? Anybody there? (Last game that this happened, I used the audio from mlb.tv along with the HD Beta TV broadcast and muted the TV.)
Also, Comcast: Why the limitation against recording HD Beta broadcasts? And when you move the HD broadcasts (with both home & away options for each game) out of beta, what other features, if any, will be added? (And why has this been in beta for so long?)

MLB Extra Innings HD Beta is a definite step up from the SD offerings, with the exception that the HD Beta games cannot be recorded.
The SD offerings, when displayed on an HD TV (somebody out there still has an SD TV?), are essentially unwatchable. The video quality, unless viewed from an adjacent room, is horrible. And the SD broadcasts use a 'letter box like' format that annoyingly stretches the display.
Given that MLB Extra Innings is a premium, extra cost package, how can Comcast justify presenting the package with a recording feature that's available for only those games broadcast mostly in SD? When will Comcast address this issue, either by broadcasting all games in HD or by dropping the 'no recording' limitation for games streamed via HD Beta?
