To rule out traffic interference I tried my normal PVR run on a box that
terminates almost straight into transit peers and LINX, with no problems.
I also ran a custom PVR for ISIHAC, but this time ran into the problems you

Therefore I conclude that this is likely a get-iplayer bug or a problem at
the BBC, rather than a nosy ISP intercepting traffic.
