    Hi, I can access the BBC website from my Galaxy but it won't play live TV. Everytime I try, through my home wi-fi. it directs me to the 'mobile' site. I can watch on my laptop but when I put the same URL into the Galaxy it changes it to mobile and fails to find the live page? Any ideas please?

    Open your browser on the tablet. Go to Settings->Advanced->User agent string and select Desktop. This will make sites stop seeing your tablet as a mobile device.

    Cheers,

    pbrauer, I have a Galaxy 10.1, but there is no "User agent string" option in the menu system under the Advanced tab as you describe, nor under any other tab.
    I see Set search engine, Open in background, Enable JavaScript, Enable plug-ins, Website settings, Open pages in Overview, Auti-fit pages, Block pop-ups, Load images, test encoding and reset to default, and that's it.

    Please help me to see what I'm missing.

    Thanks, Chris
