I have a problem whereby I cannot change the setting from Standard Quality to HQ or Auto on my ipad2 I have changed it to HQ in settings but when I connect and try and watch TV in HQ it will not let me change from SQ. The other two are effectively greyed out.
I have tried the set up option but it tells me that "no set up is required" and I am ready to go. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. My wifi signal is excellent and the bottom left shows one green button and up to 2000kbs.
I can get HQ on both PC and Mac.
Can you please help?
