I see that on both BBC Alien and BBC iPlayer options, on the SqueezeCentre Home Page, there is no Listen Again options for BBC Local Radio.

You can Listen Again to various BBC Local Radio programmes by going to the relevant BBC Local radio web site.

Is this a fault or is this how it is supposed to be?

Not sure why AlienBBC has no Local Radio Listen again - I don't know if it was lost at some stage or was never implemented.

However BBCiPlayer 0.9beta10 ( http://triodeplugins.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/testrepo.xml ) has Local radio Listen Again which works for non-UK listeners as well.

AlienBBC is still neeed for live Local Radio but BBC plan to offer those stations in AAC. Except for Local Live Radio - BBCiPLayer (albeit in beta) should be the Plugin of choice for Listening to BBC for both UK and NON-UK users.

The above link is not working for me.

when I select http://triodeplugins.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/testrepo.xml all I get is this:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <extensions>
- <details>
<title lang="EN">Triode's Squeezecenter Plugins (Test Versions)</title>
</details>
<plugins />
</extensions>

What does this mean? Is the a problem with the URL?

You're a bit slow in responding - 0.9 is now out of beta and properly released so URL for beta has been invalidated.

See following for proper release

more info just says AAC - but doesn't show the bitrate. Any chance?

I don't think the info is provided by the BBC is either the Flash RTMP or the AAC header.
