Chris.SE: ... Khyber. Still not updated. I get the impression they don't care much about traditional transmission anymore. The BBC push iplayer in your face at every opportunity and ridicule people who don't want to use it, in their "iplayer: wasted on some" advert. Well, I for one, refuse to use it. They can stick it up their .....

Well I gave them a toe up the ...... yesterday, when I have a moment, along with a few other issues, they'll get a hefty boot up the ..... next week!
All the broadcasters are "pushy" with their players/catch-up. I have to admit I do use them, Watch from start with iPlayer I find quite handy, but them I'm quite lucky I get 80Mb/s FTTC (was + w/e calls, now 500 mins anytime) for the same price I paid for 6.5Mb/s ADSL 4 years ago! Bit of a no-brainer really. What does annoy me though, is going to a broadcaster's website to get more info about a programme and you have to negotiate through often several pages related to iPlayer or Hub or whatever, struggling to find the right link, before you find a piddly amount of information about the programme! grrr!

Ha, ha they'll have given up with me a long time ago, they'll be too busy listening to next door's Alexa having found nothing interesting when they discovered my SSID, for a p-take, incorporated letters from a certain organisation to the ENE of Gloucester ;)

Chris.SE: Very funny. I wonder what the neighbours think.

The last time I accessed the BBC site, I was presented with a page about George Orwell, informing that he worked at the BBC, though no documentary evidence of it existed.

I wonder what Orwell's "Big Brother" was, that watched everyone.

That new "smart" TV you've got, are you watching it or is it watching you?

Incidentally, Orwell's real name was Eric Blair, the same surname as the pathological liar and blood-drenched war criminal whose wars, as with many others, were facilitated by the BBC.

Not one neighbour has ever said a thing :o
This telly can't watch, the remote might be listening though - they'd have heard some ripe comments about that lot in the HoC!

Chris.SE: Would that be a "Magic" remote for an LG?

I was thinking about that "watch this programme from the start" option, and how it might work.

It seems as though it requires a personal stream for every viewer, but that would be impossible if the number of viewers was large. Anyone know how it works?

js: The watch from start option takes you to an iPlayer stream starting from the scheduled start time of the currently program (iPlayer offers a 'live' stream of each BBC channel which can be 'rewound' by up to 4 hours). Can be very useful when you want to watch a program on delay and recording has failed, or 2 other channels are already being recorded.

StevensOnln1: Like a youtube live stream that has rewind enabled? Wouldn't that require personal streams?

js: I've never really thought about or investigated it. I hope StevensOnln1 will fill in our gaps in knowledge. I'd guess that it's bound to be a "personal" stream once you've selected Watch from start, and the same with any "Catchup" or "On Demand" programme selected, and likewise rewind on Youtube, but initially iPlayer is "told" which channel is wanted and it will know from the schedule what the programme is, similarly Youtube is "told/knows" which stream you are watching. I have had some "interesting" occurrences when programmes have not started at the scheduled time.

However, I didn't think you could go back 4hrs on iPlayer, I seemed to recall an incident on the news channel where I couldn't get back to where I wanted, but never went to find out why. Just looked at the "Help" and it says 2hrs. It also mentions "Schedules can and do change, so sometimes it may be slightly off" !!
Other things I've found, Watch from Start doesn't work on BBC News HD or BBC4 HD, fine on BBC1&2 HD.
The other great thing about iPlayer if you have a compatible "device" is watching the (limited) UHD stuff.
Yes, it is an LG "Magic" remote - never activated the mic, but that doesn't mean it ain't listening like Alexa etc !!
