Using LMS 7.7.2 (not MySB.com) and 2 x SBR, 1 x SBT I can quite happily listen to both live and 'listen again' streams from the BBC (I'm UK-based). But I'd like to see the title of the radio programme, and if possible the title and artist of songs being played on my SBs. Is this possible? (I've seen streams from other radio stations showing the track details...)

Didn't the BBC do something that broke the functionality on this? I'm sure I read this on here a while back.

Why they have to keep fiddling with things that previously worked is beyond me. When I emailed them to ask about this problem I was advised to get help on this very forum! Not much help when the problem is at the BBC end...

I think over the years I've experienced several occasions when the BBC changed some aspect of their streams that required updates to the plugin(s)! Other radio stations seem to manage to supply track data quite well...

The BBC are moving over to a different method of delivering information, but that currently only works for Radio1 & Radio1 Extra.

Unfortunately, some bright spark decided to stop transmitting the old information.

Tunein still transmit programme info. and pictures.

It called 'Taking the media experience forward' or 'Managing change' ... it's how executive managers justify their existence. If it ain't broke, break it, and spend all the budget on trying to fix it.

I'll ask the BBC about this again - last time I was told that RadioVis was the strategic solution, but there still doesn't seem to be any useful data there other than for Radio1 and 1Xtra. Also its not really parsable for now playing information.

Thanks Triode. Fingers crossed. It's not exactly rocket science to add dynamic metadata to a stream...
