No longer possible to record live TV?
Hello, I've just signed up to ask this question, after using get_iplayer for a few years.

Since all the changes the BBC instigated last week, is it now impossible to record live TV? It doesn't seem to work even through the command prompt. If I try the command from the documentation, all I get is this:

C:\Program Files\get_iplayer>get_iplayer --type=tv --pid="bbc_two"

Is it now impossible to record live TV, and should i just give up, or is there a way to actually get it working? Before the changes, I never had any problem recording live TV.

Great program, though. Keep up the good work! :)
