Please reply to the list and not to me directly.

I think that might explain the slow re-muxing

The one in All Users is the global options file.  Don't use that one - 
it is managed by the installer.  It isn't strictly necessary, but I 
suggest moving any options you put there into your user-level options file.

Re-muxing both from *and* to a LAN disk via wireless can be terribly slow.

In your options file -

- Change "output" to some location on your local disk
- Remove "raw" if you put it there
- Add the following line:

command copy "<filename>" "Z:\XVID\iPlayer Recordings"

The file copy will run after each programme is downloaded, and it might 
still be too slow for large files.  You'll have to evaluate it for 
yourself.  You might find it better to just manually copy all the new 
files in one go after get_iplayer finishes downloading.
