Desktop and selected the option to 'Click Here To Start Downloading
From BBC iPlayer' - and was taken to the iPlayer home page. Here, I

in the top right corner a red light and the word 'Offline', but
couldn't find any option to make it go 'online'. Nor am I able to
save any of the Settings (there aren't that many anyway)."
