For live Technical Support during Live Events

To view Live Events

  1. Before a Live Event, an inactive "Live Event" link and a "Test" link will appear in the "Play Options" box on the "Launch Page". The Live Event link will become active approximately 60 minutes prior to event start.
  2. Prior to the event, click on the Test link to test connectivity and to verify that you have Flash version 10 or higher. Be sure to return to the "Launch Page" to watch the live event. If you do not have Flash 10 or higher, you will be given the option to view the event via Windows Media Player 9 or higher.
  3. If you are experiencing interruptions while viewing the Windows Media Player stream, make sure you have changed your Network Buffering Option to 30 seconds versus the default of 5 seconds (see directions below).
    1. While viewing a program, right click on the Windows Media Player screen and choose Options.
    2. Click on the Performance tab.
    3. Go to Network Buffering and click Buffer (a green circle will now light up on your selection and will disappear from Use Default Buffering).
    4. Type in "30" seconds.
    5. Click Apply on the bottom right of the screen.
