Nice, but an early 6am start though! Better set the alarm.

Regarding the delay - pause your TV until the two are in sync. I've been sharing the PSVR during matches with my son. He prefers the main stand view to see the overall tactics, while I hop behind the goals and have the floating TV screen when the action moves further away. It's great fun. Definitely the future for sports broadcasts. So many ways it will undoubtedly improve. Better resolution, more choice of seats in the stadium. How about player/referee cams? 8) It will almost certainly become a ppv service. I expect we will be buying tickets for virtual seats in the future.
I was sat on the sofa. Just restart the app. That's what I did. It's hardly worth it though. It is very blurry and you're very far away. You can see the whole pitch, but you can't tell which player is on the ball really unless you know exactly how they run and what position they go to at all times. Hahaha! I did watch the first Kane goal from behind the Tunisian goal though. That was quite cool.
If you could be sat closer to the action it'd be better...too far away with how it is now and sat behind the goal is only good for things like penalties
Haters gonna hate...
Hmm I don't think they cover the Palistinian conflict with any justice... But I guess that's only me who doesn't know any better SMH
Sounds pretty grim, I can appreciate why you'd walk away with that opinion. You'd likely find it a more pleasant experience using your own HMD in a home environment. Sweating is an issue in particularly active games (e.g. Audioshield, Beat Saber, Box VR) but in many titles I can easily spend upwards of 6 hours without discomfort. I don't think it will go the same way as 3D as the interactivity and immersion is already so far beyond what is possible with a traditional display. I'm very positive about the future of VR and It should gain new fans as the technology evolves and improves.
Strangely the HUKD thread that mentions only the PSVR app is hotter then this thread for all the ops.
Unless I can watch it like if I was in the stands, I don’t care
Which VR headset and game did you try (shock) I own a Oculus rift CV1 I don't get any headaches Its only gets hot when you move around too much Maybe they didn't set it up correctly or was using a old headset?
Can't see the point in VR for a football match but VR works amazingly well for some games like sim racing.
You don't have to use one if you don't want too. This is just for folk who may want to try it and aren't Pringle fans and use butter only.
Actually, I correct myself, magnet button doesn't work with my Motorola. Down to my Motorola.
I better get the glue, empty pringles tubes, jam jars and an empty margarine tub and get one made...
Thanks for ostsing
Do you have a link or something to print this
By they you mean Panama right!!
There's definitely going to be some 'takers' who will buy it, right?. (Not that I agree with it). But they know what they're doing ...
You could print of the version listed as A2 on A3 paper. This would get the final stuck-together version in A1 size.
It's free regardless, the Swiss bank transfer just gets you to run FIFA, choose the world cup hosts etc.
A paper book is definitely better in my opinion too, but you can't really grumble with the Kindle one for 99p. ;)
Great price but cAn’t help thinking cooking is something where a paper book is better as it won’t go into screensaver mode every few minutes.
I must admit that I use the download by PID route which is more long winded but sidesteps issues with programme searches etc. PID is easily obtained from going to the programme you want in iplayer (web) and looking in the web address.
On checking, as I said Get_iplayer has lost functionality and will NOT allow you to download boxset etc. Anything broadcast in the last 30 days does still work ...... if you can find it !!! :)
All, Nice to be proved wrong !!! :) Last time I used it there had been some changes by the BBC that reduced the functionality. It was some tiime ago !!! Thanks for the update.
Me too not a fan personally, although Tom Baker was brilliant - but the weeping angels were superb. Chris Ecclestone episode where he meets the last Dalek was a perfect example of the bloke playing the Doctor being superb, the bloke doing dalek voice being good, and the rest more wooden than a shed.
All episodes are available for free on the Terrarium TV app.
To all those who have 4k TVs that aren’t compatible, you can buy a Roku Streaming Stick+ for about £60 which offers iPlayer in 4K. Planning on selling mine after the world cup has finished.
I was worried about the limit to the first tens of thousands of people per game, but I've watched several games and never had a problem connecting, even joining part way through the match.
Legend, id have never known about this, 4K now :D. This should have happened before it started.
No the V6 box has UHD options
Agreed generally. Usually these films, in particular those featuring downhill skiing are highly self indulgent and feature the worst sort of headbanging music and Tibetan pipes and drums! For instance 'Into the mind' and 'All I can'
I'm glad some people have enjoyed watching this film. Posted this deal as this is a film (not a program) and to make people aware it is available on the i Player (usual in my experience for films and easily missed). As for licence fee's meaning its not "free": the vast majority of people have a TV licence so I'm just advising how to get the maximum out of it. That said a crazy number of people will pay a lot more and have Sky or a similar subscription service making the licence fee seem a pittance!
gholt: Mountain film free on BBC iPlayer! Well you sold me on it. Ever thought of going into advertising? :)
Thanks for the heads up. I will check it out.
Turns out it's a bloody good watch. The money is already spent making it. Honour the people who risked their lives bringing this to us and watch it.
A lot of British and American companies work on international movies, especially Bollywood...just because something is not English it doesn't mean the UK and America don't profit!
tom courtney is about the same age as albert and he's still working. http://www.itv.com/news/channel/2018-04-10/guernsey-politicians-attend-film-premiere-in-london/ in fact, a lot of actors keep on trucking until infirmity stops them performing. `Gandalf` is 78!! meet Edith Moore... At the tender age of eighty three, a gruff old woman (Sheila Hancock) sets out to try and capture a little of the magic she had as a young girl. The story is a tale of triumph over adversity as Edie embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. http://simonhunter.com/edie-movie
kamenitzabrit: Whatever happened to our own home produced films by the likes of Ealing studios, and featuring stars such as Albert Finney ? We do have things like Aardman Animations to fly the flag for us, but sadly our great British film industry has all but vanished. Will the Arabic film industry go the same way, or is there not going to be the obvious competition form Hollywood which our English language industry faced ? The UK film industry is huge, employing 2m people and growing by 5% pa. Albert Finney's last film was British made Skyfall in 2012. He's in his 80's now so probably not as active as once was.

Yes lots do have a license but that is the cost of this so called deal. With literally thousands of these non deals, if this is allowed without any question when the site is over run with them what grounds would we have to complain then? (I'm sure you would "moan" if this was to happen)
Many thanks for the heads up op. For those who have a surround sound capable player, the DVDA of this is well worth purchasing Although would need to possibly look at the offers on 'Discogs' or Ebay, as can be hard to find.( sorry if a bit of a specialist area)
Love the album, didn't know there a documentary so will check it out, cheers. For those into music related documentaries I can heartily recommend Searching For Sugar Man for those that haven't seen it, amazing watch :)
Exactly, are we now going to post every free movie coming out on iPlayer, Netflix etc?
I was careful to make no mention of "Free" in the original post (I have been here for a while)
Hi torquatus, did you manage to upload it anywhere? Cheers!
hi all, just a heads up, I have temporarily acquired a 1GB/s uplink and will be hosting the file from there. will post the link once it's ready
Couldn't agree more, most appreciated. :-) Ps. A 20 core workstation you say?. WOW!. What kind 'monsters' are you guys churning out there?, hehehehe. :-D
That's incredibly decent of you, torquatus - thanks for all your efforts on this! :D
hi there, a quick update - I have all the files, they're ~241GB. just working out the hosting situation.. according to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_hosting_services the major providers (Dropbox, gDrive, OneDrive, Mega) all have either file size and/or bandwidth limits for free accounts. one in the wiki list looks promising, SpiderOak offer a 21 day free trial with no restrictions. I'll sign up and upload and provide a link. my upload speed is 50Mb/s so will take a while yet. sorry for the delay, I've been doing this project around work/nice weather! I've managed to compress down to ~150GB by leaving a 20-core workstation grinding away the past couple of days. if SpiderOak doesn't work for any reason I will look into setting up a torrent.
I got some... Cheers!
gone up all gone at this price well done all who managed to get some. (y)
Good find OP!
Thanks for the heads up....picked up a copy today..... Heat added :D
Got one today - thanks!
Thanks for this.. Managed to get a copy. Was the last one
Is there any easier way to search for the gardens, say by postcode? :/
This is a great deal (this should be the hottest deal of the day imho) - and I'll be picking a copy up soon. If you follow your link you can order a copy online (including the pass)... https://www.gardenersworld.com/2-for-1-gardens/order-your-2-for-1-card-online/
This deal looks smaller on the inside.
10 episodes in each series
how many episodes in S1? Fancy watching something new to get into.
Omg- won’t be able to resist watching- but if it’s the 2 back to back episodes, then waiting a week... aaargh, agony!
Thanks. This series is totally unmissable! Cannot wait for the 4th, and sadly final series, starting soon.
I watched it. Was very good. Felt for the two leads, which for such a short film, managed it well. Much better than some films Ive paid to see in the cinema.
Indeed - all thirteen episodes from 1969 are there, remastered into HD.
This one ? Civilisation, 13. Heroic Materialism: www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0074r72 Thanks for your help, @sJohnson23
I highly recommend Civilisation.
The most unfunniest comedy ever. Couldn’t pay me to watch it!!!
There was a film :o
Only £6 used like new blu Ray for anyone that actually does want it https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00EQAO1FU/ref=pe_385721_37986871_TE_item?tag=ho01f-21
Over paid tax avoiding one trick ponies
Hilarious!!! Not the show obviously, but how much they are asking for it!!
25 mins :)
anybody watching the first match? :) Wigan Athletic v Southampton FA Cup Quarter-Final 13:30 BBC One
Leicester City v Chelsea FA Cup Quarter-Final 16:30 BBC One in the TV diary! thanks OP
Would be funny if Wigan won the cup again.
Or you could find something more productive to do with your time.
