iPlayer on Samknows

As this really isn't a support question I have put it here
My Samknows box has stopped recording any iPlayer bit rates - last one was at 4 am on the 31st of December
Is this just me or is it the effect of the DDOS attack as iPlayer actually works with no problems

Same, last recorded iPlayer bitrate or startup delay was early on 31st Dec.

Re: iPlayer on Samknows

Perhaps the BBC have decided the obscene amount of data the SamKnows tests are throwing at them are a DDOS and are blocking them!

Re: iPlayer on Samknows

just noticed all streaming tests stopped at 7.00 on the 12th January with a remarkable drop in my usage - I wonder if Plusnet have been complaining
