I can't see why that is happening. Like the basic BBC services, radio channels aren't encrypted and are outside VM's subscription pack structure. So what is actually blocking access?

That's what I couldn't understand. Is this a Virgin fault or a content provider fault?

Either way, if Virgin cannot rely on the continuity of service, surely they should threaten, andd if necessary, enforce, the conclusion of this contract.

Bearing in mind that it still works on the Tivo etc, and that this bug is limited to the V6, possibly neither.

I don't know. Consider the possibility that, for some reason, the actual audio stream is incompatible with the V6. Would it be fair to threaten the content provider with a termination of contract? They are providing the same service they always have, which still works on the VM boxes it previously worked on. So how would it be their fault if VM introduced new hardware, incompatible with the stream? A bit harsh perhaps.

I would say that it is up to VM to convert the audio stream and make it universally compatible across all boxes. Either that or update the V6 firmware to make it compatible.

Of course, it may not be a compatibility problem with the actual audio stream. Which brings us back to the question, what is actually blocking access.

Out of interest, do any of the other channels, on the radio section of the EPG, fail to play on the V6?

All i've been told is that it is a software fault!?

They also said that the fault affects Nollywood TV for some people (doesn't affect me).

It does look that way. Apparently, the RTE Radio stream is MPEG2 128k stereo, so nothing unusual about the format.

Software faults only affecting certain users is also odd. Hmmm!

More competition for VM in the Desi market.

Meanwhile, indications are that Brit Asia TV should be available to VM UK TV users with the Mix, M+, Fun and Full House packs after launch.

Oh, I can see it now.

"There was this Russian, Turkman and Ukranian..."

Nah, doesn't do it for me, it doesn't have the same ring about it. I wouldn't understand the punch line anyway, particularly as I don't speak Russian!
