Is your live tv, cable or antenna, connected to the coaxial input on the TV? I assume the iplayer is connected via HDMI? Sounds like a bad/failing tuner on the motherboard but its hard to diagnose without seeing it happen or more details.

Using Ex Pat Shield, BBC progs no longer start and a notice, 'Task failed at step 0: config was empty.' (Or 'Task queue failed ditto' Everything worked fine just days ago.

I have exactly the same problem, same error message. I first noticed the problem yesterday (September 11). Error message appears when trying to watch live TV through iPlayer. BBC News Channel works OK from BBC News website. Live sports broadcasts work OK through BBC Sport website. I uninstalled and reinstalled Flash Player but it made no difference.

Intermittent sound while watching live tv (sky, on my sony vaio - iplayer sound is ok,as is, but cannot get clear sound on others such as sky

Be sure that the problem is not coming from them. Second, if you have multiple sound cards installed on your pc, make sure the appropriate one is chosen.

I live in the UK and I want to watch bbc-iplayer on my tv. Can anyone tell me what lead do I need. There is a yellow coloured jack plug at the side of my laptop. The name of the lead, or if possible ebay...

The port at the side of the computer will be an S-Video port.
The type of cable you will need is an S-Video cable, something similar to this is what you will need >>>>>>>>>

I recommend that you print a picture of this cable and take it with you when you purchase one.
