If a stream of congratulatory messages had arrived on the lines of "Great work with iplhack, that really did the trick", I would have been incentivised to push for the package to be put in the main repo, or equally if someone had been unable to make it work (as "reliably" as the iPlayer app "worked" before) I would have been able to help debug it. The inbox is bare on both fronts.
I suspect the inbox is bare because iPlayer on HDR Fox T2 is so unreliable and slow that people with alternatives are using them. I certainly do, iPlayer on my Sony TV is vastly better.
My other problem is my parents HD Fox T2 in their bedroom. It's a remote playback device for recordings on the HDR Fox T2. But that means it has no local storage (my dad objected to hard disc noise in the bedroom) so can't run custom firmware, so no iplhack possible there.
