    Incorrect. Quite some time ago there was a Touch App that:
    - provided live streaming of all national BBC radio channels
    - supported most of the last week's programs for the national BBC
    radio channels. That stopped working about the same time that
    the BBC's web-based iPlayer refused to play anything except the
    live stream without the user logging in.

    Indeed.

    Where can I find that plugin?

    All I'm currently offered by LMS is a BBC live streamer and 'RadioFeeds
    UK and Ireland' with no other plugins. The 'mysqueezebox.com' tab says
    its 'Enabled, keep player settings in sync', but the 'Plugins' tab
    doesn't list any plugins to install.

    I can get into squeezeboxserver.com from LMS but it just offers the
    same BBC plugin (seeing its icon is the same as the live streaming BBC
    app I assume its the same). If so its, no use to me: I have a Quad FM3
    with a decent antenna that long predates buying the Touch, so that's my
    preferred live streaming source for BBC channels.

    I can't see any sign of BBCiPlayerExtra on squeezeboxserver.com

    My Touch is running version 7.8.0 r16754 - does this have any known
    gotchas?

    Wrong. The Applet that supported "Listen Again" was NOT provided by Logitech but provided by Triode - it was a 3rd party Applet.

    Add the following 3rd party repo to the Plugins tab.

    Your player uses either LMS or mysqueezebox.,com - it doesn't get to mysqueezebox.com through LMS except for your list of Favorites.
    LMS Plugins are not available on mysqueezebox.com.
