Re: bbc iplayer

because your TV is a way better , modern design compared with the (now ancient) Tivo

 why bother about  the i-player  TIVo app if your TV has it built in

Ha - this is Virgin Media we are talking about - be grateful if only your broadband works - anything else is a bonus

i player on Tivo is using the tivo 10Mb pipe. i player on a smart Tv can use the full speed of your broadband package, limited only by the wifi reception ( if tv is not wired), so potentially the TV can have 200Mb va 10Mb .

 10Mb should be plenty, but once again, this is overutilised VM we are talking about. and they will blame BBC or fall back on  " the app is a free service"
