IPlayer Buffering

iPlayer on the TiVo box continues to be unwatchable - everything else works fine including catch up.  I can stream iPlayer from my iPad without buffering on wifi but hard wired Tivi box is useless - this problem has been around for ages - catch up for other channels works well, if they can't sort iPlayer can't we have the BBC programmes delivered in the same way?

Re: IPlayer Buffering

Hi jollym,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your iPlayer.

 

I'd like to run some diagnostics but I can't seem to locate your account. I've sent you a private message (purple envelope at the top right of your screen) so I can grab some details from you.

Look forward to hearing from you!  Smiley Very Happy

Re: IPlayer Buffering

I have the same problem - iPlayer interface is unbelievably slow and programmes regularly buffer despite a good internet connection. What can be done to speed up iplayer/YouTube etc?

Re: IPlayer Buffering

Same here. Have been upgraded to 70Mbps but still get the buffering wheel. I'm using a Humax box, not a TiVo.

What speed connection do I need, 300Mbps?

Re: IPlayer Buffering

I'm having exactly the same issue with IPlayer constantly buffering or loosing connection completely; even when you reboot system it can either work for a short while or still be exactly the same issue - it's an absolute pain. When I watch IPlayer over wifi from iPhone or iPad it works perfectly. It's definitely an issue with the TIVo box
