      SkyPlayer only plays adverts

      I've downloaded a missed episode of 24. When I click 'Play' the SkyPlayer window is displayed and cycles through some adverts, which then appear to stop... Then nothing happens - the Play button becomes enabled again, and if I hit 'Play' again, the adverts just start up again!

      I'm running Vista - have tried coming out of Sky Player altogether and opening the WMV file from Windows Media Player but it says it can't open it.


      Any help appreciated.

      When did you download the episode? If it was a while back then the license will have probably expired and you'll have to redownload it (if still available)

      I'd try reinstalling SKY player and repairing the Windows Media Player DRM components (info on google).

      Pace SKY HD With Seagate Pipeline HD 2TB
