- thanks to a note from Hwy1BC I retackled my BNN problem. I tried configuring Norton Firewall once again (but couldn't find the way to precisely allow feed from the bnn site). I finally purged IE of all my temporary files and cookies (after updating flash etc) and low & behold the BNN video tools loaded in the window. I still get a message telling me to disable norton etc., but it only needs to be closed.
There are problems updating the video list and going to other sites within the BNN window but I eventually get to the content I need. Next rainy day I may tackle some of the other issues.
