I get this error even without ad blocker

Could you, please, check these rules?

did you try?
Sorry, thought that was an error code generated.
Yes just tried it and it works thanks.;)
Does that now get built into a filter for everyone?
I know I am a bit dense I am just your average man in the street, :)

EDIT: it is now randomly blocking when running.
AD: It became unusable. So I thought how are they changing it as I am watching. Cookies!
I cleared my history and it is working.;)

Working perfectly now,just have to refresh the page of the video I am going to watch after navigating there.
Wow Thanks!

I added Alex302's filters to my user filters list and it worked great - programmes play with no ad breaks and no anti-adblock messages. When I cleared my user filters the anti-adblock message came back, which would imply that these extra rules are beneficial. Can they be added to the official filter distributions?

Yes, I will add them(or only the necessary rules), but I want to reproduce the issue on my end.

Please check this rule only:

I added this rule only to my user filters but saw the anti-adblock message as before. I then added your full list of 16 filters and the anti-adblock message went away and the programme played fine.

Ok. Please try to find only the necessary rules. Disable them one-by-one and check after each iteration.

I've done some more testing and found that this one rule works great for me:

I tried the ten fwmrm.net rules using just one at a time and saw the anti-adblock message on each occasion, until I tried the last rule. However, when I tried the last rule a second time in private browsing (to avoid cache issues), I saw the anti-adblock message.

I can confirm though that when I have whitelisted fwmrm.net on channel4.com, I have never seen the anti-adblock message. As the rule is only active on channel4.com, then it has no negative impact on other sites. Perhaps it is going to be difficult to write a more specific rule that works reliably.

Add my fwmrm.net rules and open filtering log. Enter fwmrm.net to search scring, select `Blocked` checkbox and reproduce the issue in private tab. Make screenshot of the log.

I performed this test and sometimes I got the anti-adblock message and other times avoided it. However, here are two URLs that showed up as blocked in the logger (each appears multiple times):
