Re: BBC iPlayer Buffering

I guess it's good to see it's a common problem then.

iPlayer is the only app on virgin that doesn't work properly.

As others have stated I can't believe Virgin can't / won't sort this out, especially when putting prices up. Time to switch I guess.

For the record every time I use the iplayer, on every programme, it buffers during the opening credits only and is generally very slow when scrolling or using the search function.

That and Netflix (no problems) are my two most used apps so this is a cause of considerable frustration.

Re: BBC iPlayer Buffering

Hi pcnatkinson,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with BBC iPlayer.

 

I've run diagnostics on your equipment and I've picked up an issue with your downstream power levels which is likely causing the iPlayer fault. I'd like to send a technician to fix it for you.

 

I've sent you a private message (purple envelope at the top right of your screen) so I can grab some details and arrange an appointment.

 

Speak soon

 

Josh

Re: BBC iPlayer Buffering

This is what someone told me a few years ago, so a technician visited and said there was nothing he could do other than change the box. Never got any better, buffer, jump, pause...
