Was able to watch iplayer on our TV Toshiba ct-8533 up to about 3 weeks ago. Since then everytime I try to watch something I get error code 02050 – why? Can I fix it?

iplayer loads but does not play on some Roku sticks error code 02056. Been going on for 2 weeks. Now BBC say Roku have issued fix but not yet fixed. Roku says its all down to the BBC.

It just doesn’t work on my TV. Nothing I try seems to make any difference. I get the Netflix style page (which I was confused by because I thought it was Netflix at first) with the selection but none of the proges will load. Catchup doesnt work on programs being broadcast (view from the beginning option). What on Earth have the BBC done, I always found the old style service worked perfectly.

i-Player is still not working in the Kettering area. Will not load at all after pressing the red button screen goes blank for about 30 seconds then turns back onto the TV stations every time. The BBC just want to take your money & not provide service
