iPlayer is streamed not recorded.

How is the V6 connected to the hub. Have you run a speed test on the V6 and what was the result (press the play symbol to get the result figures)

Re: buffering

As @Eeeps has already alluded to...

OnDemand programmes are streamed over the internet. Recorded programmes are played from your hard drive.

What you may be doing is creating "bookmarks" for OnDemand programmes, that then appear in your "my shows" list and play directly from the shortcut - but are still OnDemand programmes.

All OnDemand programmes use the same internet connection - can you watch other OnDemand programmes ok? Try watching from, say, ITV CatchUp if you're not sure.

The speed test mentioned, is under Home > Help & Settings > Help > (top of page) > TV Speed test.
