Hi

You could use a JavaScript function to re-enter the src of the iframe, thus reloading it.

var timer; function reloadFrame(){

document.getElementById('myFrame').src = 'http://www.yahoo.com';

clearTimeout(timer)
timer = setTimeout('reloadFrame()',2000)
}

now change your iFrame to this:
<iframe id="myFrame" src="http://www.yahoo.com">
</iframe>

And call the function onload
<body onload="reloadFrame()">

Let me know if this works okay
