Tivo and iPlayer

Why is the iPlayer having terrible buffering problems?

I cab stream with no issues through my PC but try an dwatch anything on iPlayer through my Tivo is ridiculous,I had even had it lock the Tivo so only way out is a reboot and then you have wait 10 mins before it kicks back up?

I was trying to watch PGA Golf on Tivo but have now been forced to watch via PC?

200mb connection whats the use if it cannot do a simple stream?

TiVo doesn't use your broadband connection. It uses its own 10Mb connection for iPlayer.

Well thats as useful as a chocolate teapot.

Seriously poor why even add these apps if the hardware cannot cope with them?

...and one of the reasons the V6 does use your own broadband connection.

Re: Tivo and iPlayer

Ring faults and get them to check the signal levels as that could be the cause of this issue. Yes, the TiVo boxes are very slow but not usually to the point where a programme is rendered completely unwatchable.

Have you rang retentions lately? Might be worth haggling a new deal and getting a V6 box. If you re-contract, there's a good chance they'll give you it with no upfront fee. That's what I'd do if I still had a TiVo box.
