Side load iPlayer

I'm sure people have said that if you download for "portable device" and start playing in Windows Media Player to get the rights installed; that you can then copy the programme across to the 5800. But I can't do this at all. I've tried connecting in WMP mode and synching with WMP, and dragging & dropping using PC Suite, and various other methods, but the sodding rights management won't let me.

The infuriating thing is that I'm a UK licence payer just wanting to do what I consider to be my RIGHT, but in order to achieve that I'm going to have to learn how to hack and override DRM by the looks of things.

EDIT: The nagging must have done the trick as the BBC have now put downloads back.
