Hi,
I hope someone can help. Im a little frustrated that my UE40F7000 doesn't seem to support the iPlayer "restart" option either via green button or directly in the iPlayer app. Ive checked the latest firmware is loaded 1136 (Nov 19) and that the iPlayer app is up to date 17.11.2.0 (Dec 16 2020). Im guessing this is because latest HbbTV spec isn't supported. If anyone has any full explanation or even better, a work-around that would be great.

From the BBC article it does seem that this can be the case that not all TV's support it. Does my TV device support Live or Watch from Start? | iPlayer help

Im trying to resist buying a dongle or STB just to get this feature.

Cheers
