    IE10 Sky Go and BBC iView player black screen in POPOUT

    Hi there
    IE10 seems to have a problem with the SKY GO player and the BBC iView player if you want to select "View in Popout Windows" --you just get a black screen. (Full screen in SKY go works as does the tiny little postage stamp size thing).

    However from the BLACK popout screen hit F12 and you'll see the developer view --now select in the Browser mode drop down IE10 (Browser Mode ==> IE10 compatability mode) and hey presto it all works.

    However the irritating thing is you can't set this globally in the IE10 settings -- you have to do this each time you are in SKY GO and start the popup.

    Anybody got round this yet.

    (Note viewing in FULL SCREEN mode works OK).
