probabily a bit late as this was shown last year so will not be available

search for uk proxy server if you want iplayer access, its a server based in the uk that has a uk address so you can use it to watch iplayer etc

not used it but it says its free http://www.daveproxy.co.uk/ , not a recommendation as i've not tried it. Others are available but they may want cash

thanks

Thanks Rich (how are you by the way?)

testing now, but not looking good !

it appears that proxy access points slow the connection down somewhat, not an issue perhaps if you have plenty of speed there in first place but sadly though this place id idylic the internet is intermittent at best !

i'll keep trying though.

Getting stronger week by week thanks - just looking forward to the 10/5 when the chemo finishes

It is a problem , a paid for proxy may be faster, but if your link isn't strong then it will be dodgy

iplayer does allow you to download and play in media player, so when you watch you are doing so locally so it may take a while to download but you watch locally

I'll setup an account and see if it works on my good internet links here
