AnyTV worked OK on some channels - But most wouldn't connect I realize not everybody in the world broadcasts 24/7 and that's ok but it limits my options. Having said that I loaded a local channel and it came in fine. I loaded BBC and it said outdated please change your bookmarks (Which you can't do within the program Even if you knew the new address.) Then I tired CCTV (From China) I tried cctv4 (English Language News 24/7 and cctv9 Movies) 4 said connecting and ready but if you hit play it doesn't do anything - 9 loaded but like so many other ones i've tried during this adventure I get constant bufferring and dont know where to load the entire broadcast buffer on streaming video. I Dl'd the Codec Pack and it only half installed said the other Codecs were incompatible.
Then I tried online TV and it said the list was outdated and if I wanted an updated list I'd have to purchase the liscense for $29.00 Which I would do if I could be assured the program would do what I wanted but after all the money i've spent by now I'm a little gun shy about forking over more $$$ for something that won't work on my machine.
The buffering problem is a problem even on other apps anf pgms I tried so I'm not sure if I have a problem with my own system settings, if my ISP is just slower than I thought although it's pretty fast. I do regular downloads of programs at about 100kbs but it has been known to slow down to 40 but it has laso been as high as 700 depending upon the antenna of the 4G modem. so i'll keep plugging away at it until I figure it out or You guys offer something that works. You know me I'll try anything, I can install uninstall and if the whole system goes kableweee I have everything backed up and can reload the whole system back to original. from my backup drive or online backup service, Thanks again
