Hi Alan, 

Thanks for your assistance! 

The exact line I entered was 'get_iplayer --pid=p02tw8xk' & that's strange as I'm also on windows 7 & x64bit too. 

As for 'alternative modes', how do I use these? I don't know if a tv mode is set in preferences, where should I be checking for this? 

As you have probably noticed, my knowledge is limited on this kind of thing!
