View Full Version : BBC Station Names disappeared?

2008-12-13, 04:55
I'm in the UK, using the standard BBC radio links (not Alien BBC) and upgraded recently to SC 7.3 (and the associated firmware update for my SB2s).

However: now, on using SN to play BBC stations, "Now playing" now displays the full stream name "mms://wmlive-acl.bbc.co.uk/wms/radio2/ nb .... etc. etc." rather than what it used to show, i.e. "BBC Radio 2" (admittedly not very informative, but a little easier to read).

Is it me? Have I missed something here?
Edit: Or is this something to to with SN having major problems as the moment?

I still find that using Squeezenetwork + BBC Radio stations: then "Now Playing" = mms stream info and NOT "BBC Radio 4".

Nobody else?

What do you get for "Now playing" when playing BBC Radio via SN? (in UK)

Works fine for me - station names and sometimes programme details.

Alien won't work atm though, but building up to a full reinstall over the holidays so fingers crossed. Missing my 'listen again'!

OK, thanks Thurston, it must be me - still not getting BBC Station Names - must check my settings (again!)
