ok so... looks great!
Anyone in the UK tried this? I'm wondering if BBC iplayer will function this way?

Great question Paul, you're a good person.
I just tried it, installs fine (although I had to replace 3.5.6 with 3.6.2, the older version wasn't found). However BBC iplayer isn't great on this platform. It's pretty jerky. Any other feedback from UK people would be good to throw some light on whether it is a local problem or not. I assume its not, but I'm not as clever as you, Paul.
