Open the get_iplayer command prompt and run:

get_iplayer --prefs-add --raw

This will add the "raw" option to your options file.  The path to your 
options file will be printed in the command output.  For reference, it 
is located at:


Type "echo %userprofile%" at a command prompt to find the path.

This setting will prevent re-muxing for *every* download and leave them 
as .FLV files in your output directory.  The Web PVR can't manaage the 
"raw" option on a per-download basis. If you want that, you'll have to 
use the command line.
