    Radio and BBC

    A friend has asked me to check this out.

    With the Touch, it's possible to get the Live and Listen Again features using the BBC app/plugin when connected to mysb.com. There's no need for a local server.

    Is this the same behaviour using the Logitech Radio? Can a user get BBC live and listen again without running a local server?

    yes

    You should do a search but I have a feeling that it may be better to play the WMA streams rather than the Flash/AAC ones.

    Thanks.

    Any idea why some programmes from the Today listings (eg. R4 Women's Hour) are frequently missing?

    Since it is a BBC issue there is no reason to waste time guessing what could be happening as you can do nothing about it. The XML feed that the iPlayer plugin uses seems to be generated by a different process with different filters that the iPlayer web pages. The web pages are nearly always up to date in terms of available programs but the XML feed seems to be generated 3 or 4 times a day - perhaps Womens hours misses the slot.

    Once again, thanks for the info.

    I'm glad you confirm it's a BBC issue ... a couple of weeks ago, it was the 9am programme that was consistently missing on R4.

    cheers.

    It seems to vary - for example, in last two weeks, it was the 9am programmes on Monday and Tuesday.

    I hadn't checked again until today when I noticed the 10am programme was missing, 10:45 programme available, but then the 11am and 12noon programmes also not listed.

    Seems the listing is full of omissions.
