That's probably because of the chrome cast on your toaster. Try a plastic kettle. It's got more soft ware.

I tried watching it on my Firestick via Silk but couldn't get it to work.

The desktop computer isn't as comfortable a watch but it works. And that's all I need.

We now have conflicting reports about firestick. One says it works and one says it doesn't. I'm going to try it on Saturday.

Has anyone mirrored/cast/whatever the expression is their iPhone image onto their telly in order to watch iFollow live coverage? Damn, I've tried, but it's simply beyond me. Nothing actually goes wrong. It just doesn't work.

Answers including phrases such as "look on the web" will result in me breaking lockdown and smearing shyte on your exterior door handles.

Am I right thinking that if you use a cable to connect a device to a TV, strictly speaking you are using the screen just as a monitor and not as a TV? Bypassing TV functions?

That is my belief. iFollow is programmed not to work on TVs or on more than one device at a time. But I do not think it is able to detect the presence of a TV which is connected to a computer by cable. It only knows about the computer and allows the broadcast to continue. You may be able to control the volume through the TV controls I'm not sure. But basically you control everything through the computer, not the tv.

The above is correct. I take the HDMI cable out of the TV box and plug it into the laptop. The TV acts as an additional monitor and I can sit on a settee and jump up and down as I like. I mute the laptop and have the sound through speakers linked to the TV.

Think it could be either your laptop or the internet connection. I watched today's match on my Windows 10 PC with 24 inch screen and Virgin broadband connection and the picture quality was fine with no breaks or buffering.

Thanks again Exile.
Perfect view throughout albeit spoilt when the commentary kicked in.
The fella is hopeless said we were playing Cambridge and taking the piss out of Townsends jersey as he thought it was camouflaged against the grass.
Somebody needs to tell him how to pronounce Mickeys surname also.
Albeit will get every game in future now.
