I think I might see the problem here. The updated get_iplayer.cgi has
acquired a DOCTYPE declaration that puts IE into standards mode. In IE9
standards mode, I see the behaviour described above, regardless of the
Web PVR version. In IE 7/8 modes and Quirks mode, it works as before.
I'm not sure why it worked for me initially, but IE was definitely in
Quirks mode when I first loaded the Web PVR. I can't repeat that now,
so I must have been hallucinating or something.
There are several options I can think of:
- Remove the DOCTYPE declaration and default to Quirks mode
- Adjust the DOCTYPE declaration to force Quirks mode
- Add a <META> header to force IE9 to use IE8 mode
fs ck: The DOCTYPE declaration was your addition. Does it need to have
that particular value for any reason?
Derek - to work around this for now, you can try Compatibility view
(Page->Compatiblity View). If that doesn't work for some reason, open
the IE developer tools (Tools->F12 developer tools). In the Document
Mode menu, select "Quirks mode"
