BBC Iplayer via homeplugs,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Max Value 85 Mbps Home Plug Double Unit Pack (Electronics)
The homeplugs arrived today and installation was as simple as all the reviews state. I bought them to allow connection between my router in one room, with the Humax HDR satellite receiver in the lounge. BBC have just implemented a beta trial of IPlayer that can be received by the Humax box via the Internet, and then shown on the TV just like a satellite broadcast.
For the Beta trial, you just have to press the red button for interactive viewing, then type in a "secret" code (you can find this by searching for BBC iplayer on freesat). If the beta trial is successful, there will be no need to enter a code.
I haven't watched for long, but Tuesdays Eastenders ran perfectly on high quality and looked like standard TV.
Fantastic - the homeplug installation and BBC iplayer were as it should be - Plug and Play with no troubleshooting!
Bear in mind that your Broadband speed has to be at least 1MBps for normal quality and at least 2MBps for high quality. I haven't used the homeplug software utility to check the throughbut, but the 85Mbps (roughly 8MBps)shouldn't be a limiting factor, though I haven't watched IPlayer yet for any length of time.
