    and they become memories that vaporize,
    and the vapor becomes the dreams we devise,
    and while we are dreaming...
    Time flies...

    I have a slow broadband connection, is anyone having similar problems?

    Yes - I have exactly the same problem. It just sits there with a rotating white 'bezel' for a couple of minutes and then says to try later. My broadband is only 2.5 Mbps - I live in a rural area - but the 'old' beta web-based iPlayer ran fine.

    No Ann. Watched an hour long programe last night with no buffering or any problems at all. But i have got 30mbs broasdband which translates to just over 20mbs on iPad. So that may be your problem.

    Staying with The Original......at least for now!

    Hi there,

    Has anyone tried using this app with video out leads connected to a TV? Does it support that? Or is it considered protected content?? If we can send this to a TV I'm definately going to get myself a video out lead!

    I have the PocketTunes app and I can get ALL of the BBC radio broadcasts. Of course I can not get Top Gear via the radio so I guess I will still have to wait for the US version of the BBC iPlayer.
