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

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.

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.
