Hi all, as the title, I want to download TV programmes from iplayer and store on usb stick or other memory card. Finding it difficult, can I have your advice please, using Win7 as OS. I need to be able to record the prog onto the mem card so that it can be watched on another tele. Probably easy if you know but I am just going round in circles on this. Any help please.

To save the programme you must have BBC iPlayer Desktop installed.

Thank you for the links, have now installed the iplayer software. It comes up on the screen Storage,download settings, startup. I do not understand what this means or what I am supposed to do next.

Hi, thanks for the links, read them carefully I have it up and running fine on my pc in Media Player but I think I was asking the impossible (Copy the file to a usb card and just plug it into another tv that has a USB socket) then expect it to play. It is clearly not written in the same format as if I had recorded it directly from the TV which I can easily do. I will try to explain, if I want to record something from the TV onto a USB card no problem using the card that is plugged into the same TV. The TV I want to play something I have downloaded from iplayerplay on cannot access internet obviously and does not have Media Player, so can't use iplayer. Thought I could just copy it from my PC to USB stick and play it on the TV but not so.
