Many thanks for the additional information and tips. I'm always keen to 
learn more.

My hope is that some day ITV, C4 and C5 see the light and realise that all 
the obstacles they erect have no effect on preventing leaks, but only annoy 
and inconvenience UK residents. If they adopted the BBC's relatively open 
format (with geo-blocking) so we can download their programmes to watch 
when, where and on device that suits us; then I and others would not need 
to search for alternative sources such as Mr Google's TPB cache.
