I'm a long-standing BT Vision customer having subscribed from virtually day 1 of the service.
My subs included Sports which with a special card allowed me to watch Setanta Sports. This channel bit the dust and soon afterwards was replaced with ESPN via Freeview.
This channel was recently withdrawn and moved to the Internet.
After a dozen hour long phone calls to BT I managed to get an "App" which lets me watch ESPN on my computer.
We subscribed initially so we could watch baseball. As it's broadcast in the small hours this was recorded on the BT box.
How can we record baseball now?
I have Win 7 Ultimate.
Can I use Windows Media Centre???

Allan: As far as I know you can't record from the app. Is there no "watch again" in the app?
