IPlayer authentication certificate

Joining in

BBC iPlayer has suddenly stopped working saving server (Virgin) can’t authenticate the certificate. Have tried the “turn off” solution but no luck

Yep same problem here in NG21 area... not iPlayer or an internet problem here as iPlayer still works on PC, tablets, phone, and Smart TV. Just not workinng on VM v6 TiVo box.

All working fine on my V6

Edit: A BBC issue is being reported on various tech news sites, and a couple of other threads on this forum.

Yes working again in NG21 area... odd that it likely to have been a BBC issue as iPlayer was working on different platforms still. Thank Jappitts


I had that problem and a reboot resolved it.
