Recording ITV,CH4,CH5

  allang 10:49 15 Feb 2011

I live abroad and would like to record from the above channels. I have a vpn account that gives me a UK IP address. Quite often my download speed drops and I end up watching progs that keep buffering and stuttering. I´m ok with BBC IPlayer ´cos you can download progs to watch later. Is there any way to record from the above channels and remove any buffering/stuttering that occurs? I´ve checked the helproom for old threads but can´t find any that are relevant.Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If you have any relatives with a PC in the UK, I believe that a "Slingbox" might do what you want but I do not know the exact way it works - maybe worth a "Google"

What country are you living/working in, as not all connections back to the UK from some countries are as good as others, particularly from the Australia/NZ region.

I live in Spain where the download speed of my adsl link varies. I have a 3meg line. Speed varies anywhere between 200k and over 2meg.

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately these sites don´t have the facility to download and watch later , unlike BBC. My download speed is not constant hence the need to be able to save progs.
