BBC iPlayer barely works on my Humax freesat (ethernet cable direct from the modem), yet when I connect the PC direct to the TV, it's fine.
Wonder if ITV player will be any better...?

"The same statute has been invoked in several high-stakes jailbreaking lawsuits involving Sony's PlayStation game console, which enjoys no such exemption."
As I understand it, the only reason no such exemption exists is that Sony settled out of court with Geohot, fearing that a judge might use the iPhone precedent to exempt the PS3 too?
I've done a clean install (took about an hour and a half) and this is the result :
Start up time appears poor.
Pre-install, the windows upgrade adviser swore blind that the Aero interface would not work on this machine, yet it works fine.
Apps are running faster than XP (but that might just be down to the new, clean installation).
Driverless webcams perform poorly, much worse than under XP.
My StarTech DVI KVM switch no longer functions correctly. When I switch back to the Win 7 machine, the monitor goes black and I have to disconnect and reconnect the switch-to-monitor cable to get it back. This is actually my biggest problem and if i can't fix it, XP will have to go back on until it is fixed.
It's difficult to see what the advantage over XP is.
Beer, because I need one.

I have to agree with the previous poster.
It isn't the IT staff who choose crapware like this. It's some moronic manager who hasn't got the faintest clue.
However, it *is* the IT staff who have to take the brunt of it when it fails.
