BBC iPlayer

I have been with Virgin for some years and generally am pleased with the service.

However what annoys me--and has done for AGES is BBC iPlayer buffering.

Why oh why can't Virgin sort it?

I have had a change of Tivo box but it makes no difference.

What are you going to do about it Virgin?

Re: BBC iPlayer

Hi oldtimer77,

 

A warm welcome to the community Smiley Happy

 

I'm sorry to hear that you've had ongoing issues when using BBC iPlayer.  I have taken a look into this for you and whilst signal levels are great right now and there's no network issues present, I'd like to know more about what happens if that's ok?

 

* Do you get buffering on SD content as well as HD?

* Will this happen at random or specific times of the day?  

 

If you can let me know I can check further.

Re: BBC iPlayer

Thanks, Collette

I can't remember which channel or if HD--it was my wife who was complaining bitterly about the buffering.

I will try iPlayer out again and will note which channel, HD or not, time, etc,and I will report back

Regards

Re: BBC iPlayer

Thank you oldtimer77 for your reply Smiley Happy

 

There's usually an option to watch the programme in SD or HD when choosing the episode.  

 

It would be great to know if the same happens when you watch SD version as well.  I look forward to hearing from you Smiley Happy
