    Gave it a try today, was pretty good and easy to use if a little laggy in the menus. Thanks for the heads up Neph.

    a bit off topic but kind of related.. iplayer recently came to the WD TV device as well which I have at a place in scotland. The following issue has been reported to me and Im at a bit of a loss for an explaination.

    They'vee only got a 2mb internet connection. On a laptop, and PC, iplayer works fine through the webpage. If i plug the WD into a 20" tv, iplayer works fine, but if i plug it into a 50" tv, it buffers badly and only plays a couple of seconds at a time.

    Does iplayer somehow detect the resolution of the TV and try to stream a higher quality picture? Is there a way of turning this off? Its kind of annoying having to switch TVs every time i want to watch iplayer.

    I've only tried to get ITV Player working once on the Wii - let's be honest, how often is there something you need to catch up on from ITV - and no matter how I tried to get to the program in question through Opera, it stubbornly insisted I was on a mobile device and the program wasn't available to watch. No I'm not! I'm on my 42" plasma! You can't get much less mobile!

    Spent last night fiddling around with iPlayer on my Xbox (Elite) and I must say I'm impressed. Slick interface. Fast. Didn't experience any issues at all.

    Could possibly be trying to stream the HD version instead of SD. Thats the only Streaming options I'm aware of with the BBC.

    Also, passive 3D on TVs is excellent. Not showing off or anything, just, y'know, providing an essential public information service...
    Uhhhhh......yeah......thanks for that bit of Public Service Broadcasting.

    Feel free to show off...........I would if I had a 3D tv, you'd never hear the end of it.
