Have been using iPlayer on my TechniSat box for a while but it has just disappeared and produces a message instead saying iPlayer bla bla coming to BBC HD bla bla ... Obviously this is BBCs doing. I thought this was done and dusted at their end and it was left to individual manufacturers to get their bit right Confused

The service has been running in Beta test mode.

The box is also capable of detecting if your internet connection is working, and I think that it may display that message if there's a connectivity issue too.

So, check your connections, and also try later - they could be doing maintenance, or iPlayer may (like the rest of the BBC site) be incredibly busy with people looking up election stuff.

Spot on Embarassed Enthusiastic vacuuming and a loose connection had pulled the ethernet cable out from the back of the box. A quick push and all is good.

Enthusiastic vacuuming? Not a problem I ever have!
