Channel 5 TV downloads

I've downloaded the programme manager from Channel 5's website for the TV downloads but when I try to play the free programme I get an error message which tells me I can't proceed because of "security issues". Not sure if this means I need to disable my cookie counter on the Control Panel of my PC. Has anyone successfully downloaded from their site ?

Just had a look at it... you can't even download anything without Internet Explorer!! So that stops anyone with a Mac from using it then. What a fantastic development team they must have!

This problem I had was for Windows Media Centre Edition

I bought a couple of episodes of CSI Las Vegas that I missed. Before it lets you download the client and tv show you have to pass a few security checks which my machine passed. Once I tried to play the files I got a similar security error.

After reading various faq's unrealated to the 5 download software and DRM Tie in with media player, I ended up unistalling Media Player 11 and rolling back to 10.

A few ms sites that helped:

Security component upgrade - not just for MCE

FIX: Windows Media Digital Rights Manager protected files may not correctly play back on Windows XP

Haha, what a quality application they have produced there. Only works on a select number of machines, and completely ignores anyone without Media Player

Thanks, guys, especially maddogsuk. Actually I've just noticed that windows is trying to download internet explorer to my PC, so obviously that's why. I'll give it another go. That darned Miami CSI, something about it that makes you carry on watching despite - or because of - Caruso...

If they have used DRM then it's basically just for IE users. It's what PTV have done with Football websites. I managed to get a full Ł50 refund back from them as I use Firefox and couldn't view the highlights packages or listen to comentary on my club's website.
