I've got a Sagemcom 94320T Freesat box which is plugged into my broadband router via Ethernet cable. The box supports the BBC iPlayer, but I've hardly managed to watch anything through it. Even if I select low quality streaming it has to stop for buffering every couple of minutes and often just stops completely so I have to restart the whole programme. The obvious answer would be that my broadband connection is too slow or not working properly. However, when I load up iPlayer on my laptop which has a wi-fi connection from the same router, I don't have any connection problems at all. I can watch programmes smoothly all the way through even in HD mode. Of course I can just plug the laptop into my TV and I'm sorted, but I still think it should work on the Freesat box and can't see any reason why it shouldn't. Any ideas...?

iPlayer through Freesat box - why doesn't it work?
