Trouble with French public stations on Frontier Silicon
« on: 08:40:41 | 21 November, 2016 »
I seem to remember hearing that Radio France changed their streams a while back (from WMA to MP3 maybe?).
On my Roberts WM-202, France Inter, France Culture, FIP etc. all now cut out after 20-30 seconds, and then reappear a few seconds later, but then drop again at some point. This does not occur on my Reciva radios, so am not sure if it is due to the FS platform or Roberts. I do not have another FS radio, so cannot check to see if it is perhaps indeed Robert's fault.
I have added FIP again directly from the FS website, and also added the stream http://direct.fipradio.fr/live/fip-midfi.mp3 as is recommended on FIPs own website. Unfortunately neither of these solutions have worked, as both incur breaks.
Am grateful for any ideas you might have.
Cheers,
K.

Same behaviour on my Sansui and my Hama DIT2010, although France Culture seems to drop out less frequently than the others.

Seems to be better this morning - no dropouts so far on my Roberts Stream 93i.

I seem to be seeing similar behavior on other stations on my Roberts. The FW has not been updated since the radio was released, so perhaps their are compatability issues emerging now as the streams get more convoluted.
