    CyclonesTV

    Is dramatically improved over CloneZone on looks and performance.

    CloneZone was horrible in terms of performance. For those of you that have signed up, are the videos improved? W/ CloneZone it was like watching a picture book, were I could see the image every other second...

    Re: CyclonesTV

    I've been streaming vids all morning, so far, seems smooth and trouble free. In the FAQ there's a question about HD quality, sounds like the stream is buffered to your connection bandwidth. I've got 50M down, so YMMV.

    CloneZone was not perfect, but is was better than nothing for those that could not get to Ames and too far away for any local coverage access.

    Doesn't our CloneZone account get us access to this as well?

    CloneZone is gone, your subscription rolled over automatically.

    Re: CyclonesTV

    Will any FB games be on Cyclones.TV only? How about basketball games? Would be great if some of the poor quality mediacom games were on Cyclones.tv.

    Re: CyclonesTV

    My connection speed is only 1.5 mbps - will Cyclones.tv work and how well will it work?

    At least one, almost certainly Western Illinois. Others TBD as the reason rolls on.

    Probably a few, just like CloneZone.

    Re: CyclonesTV

    Do you need to install microsoft silverlight to get it to work like you did CloneZone?

    Wondering because I have a custom browser for my work and Silverlight screws it all up.

    I agree from what I saw and read here.

    I'm concerned about getting ground-level viewing angles for both basketball & FB; will the camera angles be from press-box level?
