Missing images

You may have noticed that programme images are coming up as a grey/white placeholder rather than the expected programme image.

I’m not sure why this is happening.

I will try to investigate, but can’t promise anything.


Listen Again v1.5 released

Version 1.5 adds a few new stations (BBC World Service, and BBC Solent). Let me know how you get on with them.

It also adds better handling of HTTP protocol errors. Recently the BBC’s media server has started returning 500 Unavailable errors, but they malform the error response which causes the phone’s header parser some problems. This release catches this error case and now displays an error message rather than crashing.

Also, some programmes have very long titles, for example:
“Book of the Week: Gold: The Race for the World’s Most Seductive Metal: Episode 2”

This is so long it falls off the right-hand side of the screen, so you can’t read the episode number.¬† This release takes the episode number and presents it as part of the programme’s description.
