    If I've been previously listening to two different episodes of a show to which I'm subscribed, and have paused both part-way through, it seems that only one of them ever shows up on the "Continue Listening" menu. I'm not sure whether this is expected ?
    Unfortunately, the "Continue Listening" list is completely provided by the BBC's API and the plugin has no control over it. I believe they show the most recent part listened to episode, or if you've completed an episode, they show the next episode available.

    I'll make a change and I'll set it to whatever is set to be displayed in line 1 in the BBC Sounds settings preferences. Which I presume would be what is wanted? So, if it is the default ("Programme title, track title when playing") then it will provide the programme title if there is no track playing or it is a speech programme.
    Yes, that's the idea, to enable the programme info to be available via Alexa rather than just the stream name. The change may well also apply to your other radio plugins as well. If you want to do a beta I'm happy to test as I have an Alexa set-up in place.

    I’ve only seen the format to be “artist - title” with a hyphen between them. I’m guessing that was done for devices with a one-line display. The station name does not appear in this as it is defined in the JSON as remote_title rather than current_title.

    Release 2.21.0

    Release 2.21.0 contains :

    • Station Schedule for today is now additionally available from the "More" info menu when a live radio station is playing.
    • There is now tighter precision/audio accuracy for presenting Now playing track data both on live radio and AOD.
    • "Current_Title" is now explicitly set with whatever is in the line 1 (title) meta data to assist with Alexa plugin compatibility.


    It's available from the beta repository now and will be available from the main repository at the next refresh later on today.

    Thanks, seems to do the trick, Alexa now reports the programme name rather than the station name.

    Thanks for the confirmation, the track title should also be reported when appropriate.

    Thanks, glad it's not been switched off.

    I'll reboot everything else later, major domestic wrath if I was to do that now!

    Cheers.

    Release 2.21.1

    Release 2.21.1 is a minor update to fix a small bug that might of impacted the smooth/accurate provision of track meta data.

    Also, there was a small bug in LMS that has been fixed in the latest nightly 8.3.0 that also impacted the precise timing/synchronisation of the track data display to the player's audio.
