    Have they improved the quality of the stream any of late? I watched something on the Wii iPlayer a few months back and it was like watching with a mosaic filter applied.

    I wonder if the new version will still conflict with my Western Digital HDD. Some function of that line of hard drives doesn’t seem to get along with iPlayer, causing some annoying hitching.

    Yep, it’s super-crisp HD now, akin to SkyHD quality. Unfortunately my internet isn’t fast enough to stream it without hitches.
