Normally not a problem but today, no matter how many UK servers I've tried (iP Vanish), they keep getting rejected.

Anybody else? Sad

You can reboot that too. Hold down Power button till it switches off completely then switch back on. Do it regularly you'll notice the difference immediately.

Thanks Chris. I didn't think to try that one. Although on the few occasions in the past I've had to reboot it was by holding both the Home and power buttons down simultaneously for about 10 seconds, IIRC.

Just returned to cyprus to find I can't get BBC iplayer anymore. I usually use my MacBook Pro but trying with my iPad now. Could this be why, or have the licensing laws changed while I've been away?

I think the BBC are changing things regularly to stop people from abroad watching the BBCiPlayer.

My wife can watch it on her laptop, but I cannot. We are both using the same VPN..

Trev..
