iPlayer beta now public on Freesat

If you've got a Humax/Foxsat Freesat receiver, you're now able to participate in the public beta trial of the BBC iPlayer.   That's provided your hardware has done its automatic updates of course.
You also need a (wired) connection to your broadband router.

For the beta program, you then tune to BBC1, press the red button and enter code 5483.  Then it's a matter of navigating the (IMHO) rather naff oversized front-end of the iPlayer.
