    And the audio may be limited to mono (I've also tried it on an ET10000)

    No - wthout the switch (google), some signals are blocked (black screen) - so the easiest way round (although I think there is a helper for the Vu boxes) is to connect via a hdmi switch that removes this
    Nothing to do with VPN restrictions like BBC player

    You'd be better off buying an hdmi switch to increase the number of hdmi ports on your tv.
