Not sure if others have encountered this problem before.

When I watch (or try) iSky Live TV, I get only the audio and no video - theres no error message on the screen, just a black/black video box. I don't think it's re-buffering at all -  audio is very clear and continuos.

No issues watching non-Live content. I'm on a Mac running Lion 10.7.1. Tried from a Mac mini and an Air, both running Lion - same result. Tried this on both Safari and Chrome.

Any ideas?

You don't need multi room for RWC content at the moment.

I've had multi room since around 2006. Tried on 2 Macs - will try on a Windows 7 machine later.

A colleague had the exactly the same problem, and we spent the morning trying to figure it out.

We solved the problem in the end by disabling Flash's hardware acceleration.

You probably want to upgrade to 10.7.2.

Thanks for the replies.

codyc1515: You probably want to upgrade to 10.7.2.

Yup, that seems to have done the trick. Thanks.
