    Just gave it a whirl and works perfectly brilliant!

    Two questions -

    How much data roughly would you use if your streaming video on 3G? Say for 30 mins?

    Is there a way to create an icon for a direct link to a webpage like you can on iPhone?

    Hey guys just wondering, as I am a work shy sod and a big football fan, how much data would streaming one of the WC matches use roughly, do you reckon?

    Not gonna be doing it for every game but for the better looking games I was thinking about it..

    Try running 3g watchdog or something when you're streaming.

    Got it working now :) I had the same flash not supported message but I had been on the normal site not the m.tvcatchup one.

    Seems to work well on wifi on o2. Hopefully it will still work when I get to work and have to use 3g

    As long as I can get this sorted by Monday, I will be a happy bunny.

    Technically, I think that's a yes as there are BBC channels on offer. But if you have a licence for your home address, you should be OK.

    Have just watched trooping the colour on bbc. played faultlessly OVER EDGE.!! Yippee As ive mentioned already, over wifi last night, it was pants. But today it was great in high or low quality with just edge. Thats on o2. Maybe my wifi signal was busy last night because it really was pooh. Ill try again later. Also about half an hour of streaming tv today, used 81 meg and that was in a mixture of low but mainly high quality. But it really was faultless.

    just watched 10 minutes of the South Korea game & its used 33mb of data so roughly going to use 270-300mb for 90 minutes, so only able to watch 3 games on our allowance as most people are getting 1gb allowance. think i will stick to waching it on wifi only except for the odd game

    TVCatchup Works a treat, just need a bit better bandwidth on HD (using WiFi).. picture breaks up on the footy but its definitely watchable

    When I was going through the setup stage (was using wifi) it came up with something like "congratulations your ISP idnet supports this". Could it be that yours blocks this kind of traffic?

    Work pretty good indeed. Takes a couple of seconds to connect and might take a couple tries i.e pressing back and forward to reload but the quality is good on H signal. Saying that I do get a bit of audio out of sync and understandably it is about 5-10seconds off real time live tv but for a mobile device this is very impressive!

    Have you got your problem sorted. I just chose a Desire above an iPhone (on Vodafone) and pretty disappointed that catchup wont work!?

    I can't seem to log in using Dolphin HD, it just keeps returning me to the main page but I'm still not logged in.
