Whilst we do have sky sport out our house I choose to use the internet. here is my setup for the recent Europe grand prix:



I have a bbc stream on the left, an irc chat on the right (left) and live timing on the right (right). Worked a treat, much better than what was on sky.

Looks pretty cool.

Your BBC stream, is that iSKY or streamed somehow from somewhere else?

It is using a proxy that allows me access to the BBC i-Player.

The quality is very acceptable, and connection is good as well.

You can download it here: http://bbc-player.com/

Wow thanks, that's pretty good!

Takes a while to connect/fire up initially but then the quality is really good.

It seems there are two F1 specific 'channels' on the drop down list too....

Yeah connecting can take a bit, but I had it running for 3 hours or so and basically no buffering (15mbit connection). I used bbc one for qual and race, never seen those f1 channels work personally.
