i second dabbar - works very well for me with psion wavefinder. (there's
also a useful script called dabdig that links dabbar to digiguide for
scheduled recordings)

Have you tried it using DABBAR? I use the 1.4 Dev10 release which
displays all the scrolling data and it works flawlessly on the current
SlimServer release.

Incidentally, what external antenna do you use with the Wavefinder?

Cry for help..

I have a Psion wavefinder (with external aerial) + WinDAB
streaming to my squeezebox. This works very well for all but the
National BBC multiplex stream. After starting the stream it plays for
about ~10mins at which point the buffer empties and there is a pause
whilst it refills. It's almost like the BBC stream is being played too
fast. Most annoying as we spend most of our time listening to the BBC
radio channels!

This has occured on all 5.X releases. Platform is Win2K which is
a dedicated to the media streaming and serves multiple squeezeboxes.

Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.
