A goal kick from Harrow Borough FC
At this rate I don’t think I’ll hear ‘Hey Jude’ ever again!
Up and running about 5mins into the game on iPad off of the o/s....’let’s try one last go at this’... 3 versions of the BFC App clogging up the thing and all the summer shenanigans seemingly totally irrelevant!

Now trying to watch the highlights and can’t find where they are in the updated Brentford official App. Do I need to download an ifollow application?
I think they can't put highlights there until midday the next day (because Quest or whatever the channel is have exclusive rights until then).

However, I watch all the EFL highlights on Saturday evenings on the sky sports website. It's "UK only" but it's not well protected, my VPN gets me in...

BFC seem to be adding that sky basic 2-min clip to their YouTube channel at midnight now - for example:

We have posted our "full" 4min highlights now, so I guess the midday restriction is no longer there. Again, the club's official highlights don't have markybee's ifollow commentary on, but some other guy - what's the deal with that?

I believe the highlights are provided for all League clubs and are syndicated for use by many media outlets, so use their own commentators. They always seem to be scripted, anyway.

Plausible, ish, but still fairly nonsensical - we have a 2min highlight package on YouTube that I'd say are the "provided" ones, whereas my impression is that this longer version is more Brentford-controlled.

When the live coverage happens, there is video and audio. I don't know the technical details at all, but even if these are different "channels", why not take the combined product, rather than recording a separate commentary?

As you say, they're pretty obviously scripted, like the good old Match of the Day stuff - "they'll be looking for the big man from the corner... And funnily enough, they found him!"

Where are these syndicated products being shown? I'm very skeptical in that regard... Some obscure Australian channel is showing all of these stitched together every week? And they're satisfied with this naff bland pseudo-commentary?

Lots of questions... Can't really be bothered to find the answers. Hoping someone knows and can tell me.

To be fair if they'd used Marky's commentary there's probably a fair chance he'd be talking about his view of the M4 during the build-up....

I have posted on GPG asking how to link my TV to my Desktop. My Desktop is a HP brand.

Following lots of help, research, try’s and cables adapter’s . I got through to the online help at HP by linking through my Desktop entering Serial No and Product Type I got some new information about my , front of PC USB’s., they are USB A type. So I have ordered a USB A to USB C adapter . Then with this and the HDMI cable and USB C adapter I will be able to connect the two together

I would like to thank all who put forward ideas . Thank You

I'm sorry to say this but I would say it is unlikely to give you a decent enough picture to watch a fast moving football match. USB A even if 3.0 just doesn't have enough bandwidth.

With that said if this USB C to HDMI Adapter, Syntech Thunderbolt 3 to HDMI: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics is the adapter you have bought as mentioned in the other thread it's not using just a USB connection, it is using the USB connector to enable display port over USB, a USB A to USB C will allow the cable to fit but it is unlikely to give you a picture.

Most modern machines have the ability run two displays, if yours doesnt then I would suggest replacing your main monitor with the TV for the duration of the game.

What is the model of your PC?

OK found it on HP's site, it seems you should have a VGA port 1600887917095.png and a DVI port 1600888274397.pngon the back of your machine.

If your monitor is in the VGA one then this should give you a usable HDMI port StarTech.com DVI to HDMI Video Adapter with USB Power: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics if the other way round then this VGA to HDMI, Benfei VGA Input to HDMI Ouput Adapter: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics should work.

I cannot vouch for the quality of these devices but if they do what they say they do then you should be OK

Just a note that VGA to HDMI won't carry audio only display. DVI to HDMI will carry both.

Although looking at Alex's link the device he had suggested has USB as well which would carry the audio.

Alex and Hobbsy cheers for your help and advice, much appreciated. I’ve read up on both of these and decided to go for the second option. It’s say delivery for tomorrow so maybe, decorating allowing I could have it set up in time for the Millwall game. Guys I will keep you informed.

Good stuff, looks like you need to adjust the resolution to match the TV and you'll be all set.

Treat yourself to a wireless keyboard and mouse and you can use it in front of the TV

Looks like a job well done eventually. But would it not have been cheaper and a lot less hassle to buy a 4K Firestick and watch it that way?

Yes it’s a good job well done with the help of Brentford Fans on the GPG

Don’t know what a 4K Firestick is , hope it’s not £4K.. anyway got the young fans coming this afternoon to watch the game

Del, glad you’re up and running and hopefully it all goes smoothly later.

This is a Firestick:


Just plug in into the HDMI port of your tv, connect it to your wi-fi and you’re good to go. I connect to iFollow using the internet app that comes with Firestick as standard.

Thanks for the info. I think I could have a problem with the Wi Fi early on with my problem I looked to set up my TV to Wireless . The TV is attached to a Sky Q Box , I couldn’t get hooked up, on looking into it further it stays that you can go Wireless if you have a Sky Hub, my Hub is BT

This requirement for payment details when no payment is required is not compliant with the privacy requirements of GDPR.
I wrote to EFL and got the following reply

Thank you for letter (dated 20 September 2020). As a broad principle and temporary response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Championship Clubs are able to grant access for Season Ticket holders to their home (and some select Away) matches, though various Clubs have indeed adopted specific stances on this.


The process for doing this via iFollow is to use a promotional code that provides 100% off of what would ordinarily be a purchase.



We note your concerns about the storage of Credit Card details, which have been required as a result of the above in order to ensure fans have access, though we are urgently working to implement a solution which does not require submission of payment details for Season Ticket holders. Please be assured your Credit Card details have been purged and are not stored.


To allay your concerns moving forward while temporary streaming access for Season Ticket holders is in place::



- We will grant access to the Sunday match and put this in your iFollow account on Friday, meaning you only need to log-in to the service on Sunday to view the match against Preston North End.



- We are moving away from the process of issuing promotional codes which require payment details, to an alternative solution. More details to follow in due course (and via your Club)



Thank you for your support of the EFL and its clubs during this time. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at ifollow@Efl.com

They have taken the concerns seriously and are doing something about it - good news

Awful isn't it?

I click on the youtube link, in the vain hope it's @Markybee and the boys, but as soon as it's the commentary that has been added on afterwards I turn it off.
