    Unbelievable streaming experience, only possible to watch the first minute or two of episode 3. I've tried for 3 nights now. Totally unwatchable, then when you try to report a problem with the video then this doesn't work either as it gets overlayed on the webpage making it impossible to submit.

    Terrible, terrible streaming experience, only possible to watch the first minute or two of episode 3. I've tried for 5 nights now.

    Average attention span for any web page is how much?? This page crashes on the ad and I have a 60mb line, oh wait while i'm writing this the ad streaming has come back. Channel five, get your act together and use proper codecs on your ads and stop pissing of your viewers. We are here to re watch the show!!!!

    An own goal by five. This new format is shocking! An opportunity for the Beeb to step in and produce a consumer orientated gadget/tech show, whilst those at 5 blame each other for making such a mess of things

    As always... cant watch without pauses, stuttering, very poor quality and basically a waste of time. Just wait for the repeats on TV... which I will.........

    I think the Gadget Show people should teach Demand 5 about good online programme players or what ever its called!

    I always used to have a problem with 5od but when I changed my anti-virus to one that could actually do something about Tracking Cookies it stopped being a problem. Don't know if that actually has anything to do with it, but its the only thing that changed, my internet connection is still usless.

    I know that there is no problem with streaming to my PC, as I have watched a half hour progams from the Iplayer, 4OD and ITV Player in the same time this program has stalled-streamed-stalled-stream-etc. I tried pausing for 2 minutes (to let it buffer), 3 minutes, 5 minutes and 10 minutes. The 2 minutes pause plus the playback gave 2 minutes and 22 seconds, which roughly works out at only 55% of stream ratio. And the ration was roughly similar for the longer durations. This means that I would need to buffer for about 30minutes to watch the program uninterupted with stream dropouts. Would that work - no, because there is ad breaks. I stream shows from the USA through a proxy server and don't have this problem. Did I get this same problem with the other tv chanels, did I buffer (replace any two letters). Yes the problem may be to do with indiviual connection speeds - the individual computer that is feeding all 5's programs.

    I had no problem with adverts? In fact what adverts? Whenever there was a break, it just went straight on with the next part! No quality issues what so ever

    seems to be an issue with the ad break freezing. Ironic when watching a program about gadgets.
