    using another browser doesn't seem to help, currently trying Chrome and so far the same problem + it now won't let me operate in Windows 8 (Metro mode) at all and just keeps going to desktop mode - despite telling it I want Windows 8 mode !!!

    The metro Browser has to be set as the default Browser, so you cannot have both IE and Chrome as browsers together on Metro, one will open on the desktop.

What to use for TV viewing? in Software and Apps
