BBC Radio Dropouts
I have been getting spordic dropouts on BBC radio stations these last few weeks via Tunein. Not often but enough ot be annoying or suggest an issue. I have no network issues I know of. Qobuz works fine etc

Anyone else or is it me? I would think the BBC would likely not have any issues left not addressed for this amount of time

RE: BBC Radio Dropouts
Even if you don't currently use MinimServer, you could try using MinimServer/MinimStreamer to stream BBC stations using their native (non-Tunein) URLs, to see if that works any better. The starting point for installing and using MinimServer and Minimstreamer aa a radio streamer is here.

RE: BBC Radio Dropouts
I find BBC dropouts to be fairly common, especially local stations. I think the explanation was that sometimes the DS can lose the lock on a radio station if it constantly misbehaves ( or I may have made that up Sad)

Whatever, I've stopped worrying about it and listen to something else.

RE: BBC Radio Dropouts
It's been a problem with BBC radio feeds for the last few weeks - and it is getting very irritating!

There's no problems on any other Tunein channels, or Qobuz, or Calm Radio - so its clearly the BBC.

Hope they get it sorted soon.

Although I don't listen to BBC streams every day, I haven't noticed this on Radio 3, which is the streamed station I listen to most. It may be that the problem is not in the BBC server as such but in the particular routing to your internet connection. It will be interesting to see whether there are any more reports of this problem.

If you are only seeing problems with BBC streams, it is likely that any routing problems will not be local to you. Given the pressures on internet services in central London, it would be quite plausible that they are at the BBC end of things. You always have the option of contacting the BBC and asking them whether they are aware of the issue.

I've given up and got my old tuner out of a box and connected it to my system!
