    No, v.10.5, only dl'd & installed a few months ago because it was refusing to work for something else.

    I've seen what you describe on low speed broadband when set to be LAN
    The bandwidth settings are correct, as all of the other media players I have are set to the same speed and they all work.

    I'd accept that it was something wrong with me/ my system if nothing else worked; but that's the point:

    Everything else is fine, and works flawlessly. Real doesn't. QED - that's where the problem lies.

    I just did a clean install of the latest version, all updates etc, and tried again:

    Worked for all of 10s before it stopped streaming properly.
    Thanks for all the fish

    Real player has always been a POS. The mac version is somewhat better but still a POS.

    Anyway, 8 more minutes to go !

    I think he looked very haunted, James looked shocked, and Jeremy for once didn't make tasteless jokes. Until it was out of the 'safety' zone.

    I'm glad he's back, a much better presenter than James May and a brave bloke- an ordinary human being who was strong enough to fight for his life.

    Lovin' the XKR and the AMV8 with black wheels, too

    I actually think James is a very underrated presenter. I think he is just brilliant and looks at cars from a different perspective. Sometimes speed and power isn't important
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    OMG, really? I reckon that James if the best one of them all. He provides a dose a common sense to proceedings and seems like a real person rather than a bloated ego on legs.

    I don't like his manner. He seems far too set in his ways. And he reads the Telegraph.

    You say that as if it is somehow negative.

    Cracking review of the Jag, but I can't help but think that a Vantage with PPP would be very difficult to walk away from, given the opportunity.

    Still, one could hardly be disappointed with the XK either.
    Thanks for all the fish
