BBC IPlayer is very slow starting to play a program (and is sometimes flashing on and off after the start of the program). Why is this and can anything be done (by Virgin Media). Other sources of programmes load OK.
Don't have a tablet or PS4. Getting a programme to start with Virgin Media is far slower than with my computer. There's a great deal; of buffering and flashing of screens - even after a programme has started.
Check my previous post for a picture of the 2 versions of TV box VM currently have. If you've got a TiVo box, then although it's quite capable of running the iPlayer app, it's not the quickest by any stretch.
If you have Virgin broadband, and have had your current package for a while, I would recommend looking at a swapout to the V6 box which is much quicker at handling all apps, including the iPlayer
