Thanks for the links the getiplayer :) works great, I now have the Ray
Mears series (of which I missed a couple of episodes) in HD (1280x720)
sitting waiting to be watched.

I noticed on the IPlayer website there are RSS feeds available for
programmes, I added the BBC HD RSS feed into MythTv's feeds section and it
updated fine. Launching a link opened the Myth Web Browser but
unfortunately my browser doesn't appear to be configured correctly.

It always appears that its zoomed in, e.g. the font size is enormous and
one or two letters fill the entire screen. But I digress :)
