I recommend using get_iplayer to download and watch bbc content offline
http://linuxcentre.net/getiplayer/, it supports all stream types including
bbc hd and you can set it up as a pvr and also use it for the live streams,
it's one of the programs I use most on my computer! And it doesn't have any
time limitations for the videos you download.
