BBC iPlayer – a few weeks on

I think I’m fed up with this now; it took me a while to realise that the Kservice.exe process was running in the background, even after a reboot, after which the iPlayer wasn’t turned on. So you have to Contrl + Alt + Delete the process every time you turn on the machine.

You’ve got the Kservice.exe file running and using your bandwidth without notification – this is a real oversight : I understand why – most people will unwittingly share the latest episode of Eastenders, and the service will seem really fast (which I still think, it is).

But for those of us which limit out bandwidth usage on peak hours, this is as good as a slap in the face.

Let’s hope the BBC have got the message about this?
