BBC iplayer on Freesat

  John B 13:09 PM 31 Jan 10

I've just hooked the Foxsat box up to my router and I can now watch iplayer.

If you didn't know; tune to BBC1, press the red button and then enter code 5483 and press ok.

You need to have the latest software on the Humax (1.00.12) click here

Didn't work on new Samsung TV with integrated freeview tuner.

Freesat or freeview integrated tuner?

I was tired, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

John B is talking about FreeSAT- the digital satellite service.
Needs a Freesat dish and box.

Freeview in your TV is terrestrial of course.

Had you read and understood my last reply you would see that I had already recognised my mistake.

I think you also need a broadband connection to your sat box.

I wait to be corrected!?!

No need for correction, When I mentioned hooking the Foxsat up to my router I hadn't considered that some people might still be on dial up. Sorry.

Your 15.29 had not arrived whilst I was typting my 15.37
That appeared only at the next refresh[after me posting] happens all the time- the way posts appear has been a topic in the past.

I understand that most of the set top box manufacturers are testing their kit with the BBC before rolling out in the next few weeks.

I've got a sagem box

so I';m hoping the wait is not too long!
