Thanks, Brian!  I'll try it.

I did have Channel 4 working well on Wheezy (my desktop), but have never 
managed to get it going on Jessie (my television).  Channel 4 on Wheezy 
suddenly stopped working a few weeks ago after an update.  So I am back to 
not being able to get 4oD at all. I can get live programmes by actually using 
the television!!  I watch catch-up a lot more than live programmes.  (I don't 
watch either much!  But as I get older and more decrepit I watch more. :-(  )

I have tried various things on Jessie without success.  I'll have another go 
with your list in hand.
