    Hi Trev

    No, I don't doubt that it still works on some devices, but not on 4000T/5000T boxes.

    By the way, your quoting has gone awry.

    SO, it is a BBC problem. If it shows on a Samsung T V on freeview and works only near the end of a programme but not always at the beginning.
    Then if the green button/BBC iPlayer flag should work on the Freeview 5000t when shown.
    It works on my Samsung tv in exactly the same way as my Humax .
    So Graham on most occasions your correct. However, on this one You are wrong.
    It doesn't always work all the time, every time on the BBC Just like the red button flag onscreen doesn't, Indeed the BBC parliament channel suffers the same inconsistency as well.

    What exactly did I post that was wrong ?

    To re-iterate.

    FVP-5000T no green button Prompt anymore as far as I can tell. Pressing Green button does not work. No way to play a programme that has started from the beginning unless the box was tuned to that channel when the programme started.

    HDR-1000S - equivalent option is a circular arrow on the current programme. Preessing OK and selecting the view from the beginning option works as intended delivering missing content from BBC iplayer

    BBC iplayer live on a Android device (Guess IOS will be the same). Current live programme has start from the beginning option. Guessing this may be viewed on your TV using a chromecast emulating the option.

    All the above are factual. I made no comment as to where the fault lies. It's seems something has changed the in way the BBC handles this option that has made the current FVP boxes firmware incompatible.

    I don't have an aerial connected to my Freeview-TV just a satellite connection from my Foxsat-HDR which is a G1 model so lacks this feature anyway. If I have time I will loop through the aerial to my 4 Tuner (2 Freeview - 2 Freesat), to see if the Freeview option has the View From the beginning option.

    Who is responsible it's hard to say. Did the BBC tell Humax they were about to change something.

    I currently don't have a aerial connected to my 4 tuner Panasonic-TV (2 Freeview and 2 Freesat). I have a single feed from my Foxsat-HDR.). I would need to connect an aerial to check what happens on the Freeview options).

    I wonder if someone is confusing the option to wind back a programme that was tuned from the beginning by simply winding back in the Live TV buffer - and with most models converting that to a actual recording, this also gives a view from the beginning option by simply viewing the created recording in chasing playback and will also record the complete programme.

    Then that's that. End of. No more conversation required on that subject then? ;=)

    Yeah, but too late to edit it to make it correct. The quoting is a bleeding nightmare on this forum with 'blockquote' 'site' and the rest of that boloney just there to trap you into getting it wrong.

    After waiting patiently for an age for the iPlayer livechat to become available last night, I am still no nearer to a solution.
    After first telling me that they had no access to complaints raised via their online form, I was asked if my issue was anything similar to "xyz...". As this was my complaint verbatim, I pointed this out, at which (miraculously) everything was available but it contained nothing but promises to investigate the issues. I was then told that my LG TV is not and never was certified for compatibility with the green button (followed by an email confirming this). However, looking this morning on the compatible devices list, I see that it is there.
    This is clearly going to drag on.

    Just posting again to ask if anyone with a 4000t/5000t has got "live restart" functionality again (either via the green button or directly within iPlayer)?
    I still having no luck and iPlayer support are now telling me (via email) that neither my Humax nor my LG TV support "live restart", despite both being on their list of certified devices.
    Has anyone else reported the issue? If so, what was the BBC response?

    Cheers.

    No joy with green button with my 4000t. Restart option within dedicated iPlayer is not an option either. Looks like a compatibility problem with 4000/5000t devices.
