Serviio Online Feeds Questions...

Is there anyway of streaming the HD versions of programmes (or BBC HD channels) via Serviio?

My Sony BDP-S570 has BBC iPlayer integrated and when I selected programme I can then switch it to the HD version if I wish.

In order to watch an online "channel", I assume they have to have a RSS feed to their content? Does 4OD, ITV iPlayer, 5OD have such a feed?

Thanks.

Yes you can, just select the required quality in the console.

We will need to write a plugin for those.

I have set them all to high. The RSS feed does not completely match the built in iPlayer in the Sony BDP-S570. I had to hunt round for a HD programme on both to compare. They seem okay on my Sony. The Panasonic looks a bit fuzzy so it might be transcoding it.

Of those listed the ITV iPlayer would be good as the Sony BDP-S570 does the others.

I assume Sky iPlayer/Go (or what ever it is called this week) is a no go? It is integrated into the XBox 360 though apparently? How though, I do not know... :(
