- BBC iPlayer etc playback on your telly?
You can use Wii, PS3, PC/laptop hooked up to telly, iPhone/iPod Touch hooked up to telly, Virgin Media.
I’ve used the Wii option a few times – it is watchable, but not great quality as they have to use the older version of Flash which doesn’t support the nicer video.
You get better quality streaming if you use a PC with the latest version of Flash installed and you get the best quality if you download the programme rather than streaming it (plus you get to keep it for 30 days that way).Posted 9 years agomolgripsSubscriber
The PS3 one is ok but a bit fiddly to fullscreen. If you have an Xbox and a PC with media centre, you are quids in. There’s an add-on called TunerFreeMCE which lets you watch all the BBC iplayer stuff AND the Channel4, 5 and ITV ones too inside media centre. Then you can just beam it to your Xbox and you’re away.
I’ve been trying to get this to work for a while but it won’t work with a PS3 and I don’t have an Xbox. Something to do with the PS3 not supporting streaming of the video format from TunerFreeMCEPosted 9 years agognarlynathMember
Thanks. yes, I meant a cable from my monitor/VGA out into the DVi on the TV. Which means it is effectively a monitor. You dont’ get as much visible display but it’s good enough for BBC iplaying.Posted 9 years ago
