    Desert Island Discs Programme Archive

    The BBC have created an online archive for their programme Desert Island Discs. I was wondering if there is a way of accessing these via Radio menu and/or BBC iPlayer menu within the SqueezeBox server software.

    The programme archive is located at:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/features...t-island-discs

    Archive:

    Question Question (installation problem)

    I've installed BBCiPlayer plugin so there is a directory now

    /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/InstalledPlugins/Plugins/BBCiPlayer>

    ( I use Ubuntu ).

    Then I created directory BBCiPlayerExtra under Plugins

    /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/InstalledPlugins/Plugins/BBCiPlayerExtra>

    and unzipped files there, restarted the server, but I can't see Archives menu when I click on BBCiPlayer in the squeezebox (it appears under
    "Home->Internet Radio)

    There is no menu item BBCiPlayerExtra.

    Where it should be - directly under Home or under Home->Extra ?

    I can't find it.

    You need to install the BBCiPlayerExtra plugin using the standard Plugins install method and makes sure it works. It will appear as a menu BBCiPlayerExtra in the Internet Radio menu.

    Then copy the two new files to get the archive functionality.

    I've installed iPlayer Extras and the two extra files this morning. However, the only year I can select is 2011 and the only programmes listed in the A-Z are also from 2011. Is this operator error?

    What are the "two extra files " ?

    I thnk there is a BBC change and much of the archives has been moved to Podcasts from iPlayer.

    edit:

    Still in iPLayer - need to look into this further.
