    On a freeview box you now have to retune/reset it, you can use www.tvcatchup.com for loads of current TV programmes on your PC.

    Cannot us it on an ipad

    It will not load on an iPad as it needs a flash facility from adobe and Apple will not agree terms

    I got round it

    By going round it a different way I can stream it by using http://iPad.tvcatchup.com. Works ok, but is not as smooth as I get on my lap top with say BBC iplayer.. But it is free.

    We warned you :Wink:

    And I think it's a bit more than lawyer problems, flash lets content into your iPad Apple can't control. That's a no no for Apple.

    Exactly

    It's all about protecting content revenue streams via iTunes .. I'm a big fan of Apple products, had Macs for years .. and there is no problem with flash on OS X .. but wouldn't buy an iPad , for a little more you can have a proper MacBook

    ITV4+1 was removed this week from the Sky EPG, due to the changes and space required by the launch of ITV1+1.

    You can still access it by adding it to your other channels list (10832 H - 22000 5/6), but at the moment it is no longer available on the Sky EPG.

    It is still on Freeview EPG and Freesat EPG, but not on the Sky EPG.

    I notice ITV+1 and like it.

    Wished I was clever enough to add it. I like all the old repeats they get on.

    Add it to your "Services, Other Channel list" by
    Services, 4, 4, input frequency, find channels, navigate to the channel (2nd down I think), press yellow to put a tick beside it, press select,
    and it is now in your "other channels" list, which oyu access by Services, Other channels, navigate to ITV4+1 and press select.
