Can the Xtreamer be used to play BBCiPlayer content ?

Yes it can !

It does require a suitable PC / Home Server running Tversity Pro, but after a few minutes setting it up, and a little care using the uPNP option on the Xtreamer you should be watching BBC iPlayer content as you wish.  Just be careful to set the Tversity ‘file folder’ to a suitable location (ie \shares\videos on a Home Server) where there is plenty of space – also set Tversity file limit up from the 8GB default, and get all the files you need locally cached !

Have fun !
