Thanks James for that, I did have a look at it a while ago when things
first changed, but the default was downloading at much higher
resolution hence much bigger files which wasn't very good with my slow
download speed and I was also experiencing picture freezing although
sound continued OK, This I put down to the old machine I am using, so
I just went back to the old method with the intention of investigating
further at a later date, Do you happen to know the correct options to
give me an equivalent download size, currently about 320-340Mb for a
30 minute program? I will also have a look at the help myself to see
if I can work it out.
