RSS or Atom?
« on: 05:54:16 | 11 May, 2016 »
I tried listening to a BBC 4 podcast using the "podcast" function on my Grace Mondo.  The Mondo displayed a message I haven't seen before:  "Podcast not compatible with this radio.  Should be RSS or Atom."  Is this the BBC discontinuing the mp3 podcast streams as threatened?

Which podcast is doing this? I just tried a couple of random Radio 4 podcasts on my Avox Indio Color and on my Roberts Stream 93i (Frontier); coming through loud & clear as mp3 streams.

Radios in use: Roberts Stream 93i, Sangean WFR-29C, Technisat 450 & 520, Revo Pixis RX, Hama DIT2010, IR110 & DIR3100.

On my Avox Color (= Grace Mondo), starting at 'Home' menu, then Podcasts, then BBC Podcasts (the only other one listed is BlogTalkRadio), then BBC Radio 4, then Yesterday in Parliament, then Yesterday in Parliament 11 May 2016.....plays fine with 128kbps MP3, and a Yesterday in Parliament logo on the left.

Regional issue in USA, perhaps?

Ok, I tried the BBC 4 "Inside Science" podcast on the Grace Microsystem and it played normally.  I'm not sure what's going on or what the earlier "radio incompatible" message meant.
