I'm used to this appearing in the top right when using Freeview but should it also work on Freesat? Set up a new Smart LG TV with built in Freesat today, have set up and logged into iPlayer but I don't get the start again option when tuning into the BBC channels, should I?

I think it's confined to Freeview Play, not Freesat Anytime.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Yes because if you do use that function it reverts to IPTV streaming from the beginning, a function which is not available via satellite.

The Freetime satellite boxes work in the same way. But, as yet, they haven't embraced the restart function.

As the facility already functions on other platforms what could possibly be the problem, unless of course it is the geolocation copyrights issue

No idea. Maybe software licensing or summat tedious like that?

Thanks, at least I know it's not the TV at fault. I guess it's probably licensing that removes manual tuning when in Freesat mode even within the advanced menu, so no way of adding C4 HD to the channel line up.

I was referring to the green button rather than C4HD
