BBC iPlayer Buffering Non Stop!

Just signed up to Virgin media package and BBC iPlayer buffers non-stop! Considering cancelling and going back to Sky... seems like a common issue, anyone had this fixed??

Terrible service.

Re: BBC iPlayer Buffering Non Stop!

Yes iPlayer on TiVo is pants. It's a BBC app supplied by the BBC. I've emailed them but got a ' gosh we think it works beautifully' reply. Also you tried FF or RWD yet? BBC have v strange ideas about how to fast forward and rewind. 

Might be better I guess when the new box arrives later in the year.

Re: BBC iPlayer Buffering Non Stop!

Virgin need to take accountability for an app they use, not great for their reputation using sub standard apps!

Not to mention when you open the BBC app, takes far too long to load up... Overall TiVo functionality is very clunky compared to Sky. Feels like a cheap, poorly invested device.

Using an iPhone/iPad and streaming via Apple TV is pretty reliable...
