I'd like to give you a warm welcome into the Community and thank you for posting.
I'm sorry to read about the iPlayer, this isn't what I like to hear. I've been testing the TV services and they're looking well, I would like to ask if you can reboot the boxes and see how they're responding now?
Welcome back to the Forum, I can see you've making yourself at home
I am sorry that there's been some issue on the iPlayer, that's never the best when this happens. I have been able to look into this for you and I was able to test both TV and broadband services. I was able to see that both services are having some problems with the signal levels. I would like to send out an engineer to come and help adjust some of these levels to bring you back to life again.
I've sent you a 'Private Message', you can find this by clicking on the little purple envelope near the top right of the page.
There is no buffering at the moment but this was only a recent issue. The main problem is that iPlayer is deathly slow to load - fine when it gets there, but I've lost the will to live by that point.
I also tried to run the tests on the "check service status" page again. I tried this just before I posted the original issue and the results are the same.
The tests (I tried both broadband and TV) get to about 40% and then give a message that "we are trying to fix the issue", "this should take about 10 minutes", "please reboot your equipment after this time and get back to us if there is still a problem".
Am I missing something? It doesn't say what the issue is and clearly if there is one it didn't take 10 minutes to fix - it's been at least 6 days since the first time I ran the tests.
To be honest I wasn't sure there was an issue but the fact that the tests aren't able to complete suggests to me there is.
