Displaying BBC iPlayer on screens
« on: February 14, 2011, 04:26:41 PM »
I'm trying to set up a screen to display only the iPlayer part of the BBC News website without the surrounding text and pictures.  I know it's possible as I had a template which was erased when the suftware was upgraded, but I can't remember how it was done!  Any help will be gratefully received.

You need to create a web frame and then add the following URL http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10318089. This is for the 24-hour news. You can actually 'pan' the page. Use the offsets Left and Top to only use the part of the screen you are interested in. Turn Off Scroll and that is it!
