Yes, BBC stopped working (again) on all my Frontier Silicon based radios (not just Roberts). Other people have posted on Roberts' Facebook page with the same problem since Friday evening, but Roberts don't seem to be home this weekend. Suspicion is that BBC have been messing with their streams again, which does not affect iPlayer listeners but does affect internet radio users, about whom the BBC don't care too much. Either that or a vTuner problem (Frontier radios use their database).

Funny how this often happens on a Friday evening so we have to wait for Monday morning for someone to fix it.
Radios in use: Roberts Stream 93i, Sangean WFR-29C, Technisat 450 & 520, Revo Pixis RX, Hama DIT2010, IR110 & DIR3100.

As a back-up method, you could add the MP3 streams (which are still available, but who knows for how long?) as 'added stations'. The URLs may be found here: http://www.suppertime.co.uk/blogmywiki/2015/04/updated-list-of-bbc-network-radio-urls/.

What is strange is that the url streams used by Frontier are the same as the ones in the site listed above by Dogmatix. I extracted the url for Radio 4 from my favorites at the frontier portal and it's pls3158.m3u that contains the following http://bbcmedia.ic.llnwd.net/stream/bbcmedia_radio4fm_mf_p. If you add that to your My Added Stations it plays fine! It must be a vTuner/Frontier problem.

Well, whatever the problem was, and whereever if was, they've fixed it. The BBC streams are working now.

I note, however, that the Radio 4 URLs in the website I referred to below are reported by my radio as 128kbps MP3, whereas the normal (now working again streams) are reported as 96kbps AAC.

My two internet radios (using Logitech Media Server and Squeezebox) are not updating BBC on demand menus.
Can't access anything more recent than Sunday Nov 26. I have not changed anything: it all worked fine at the weekend.
Any solutions please?

Listen Again seems to be fixed.

It does indeed.
All catch-up menus seem to have been restored from the missing few days.
You realise how much you rely on this service when it mysteriously disappears.
