Thanks for the update, Macfive.
It appears that Highlander Radio is not the only station being impacted by Live365's "technical difficulties."
Here's a sample post from one of their forums.
| I've just cancelled my VIP subscription, because I can't listen to Live365 in anything like acceptable quality via iTunes.|
Before I go, however, I'd like to publicly thank a couple of your broadcasters for the many many hours of excellent programming I've listened to over the last year.
I suspect that the "technical difficulties" are actually difficulties in getting their spyware past the spyware filters so many people and isp's are using now.
Here's another sample from their forum.
| Had a problem w/Radio365 totally locking up my machine several seconds after start. Found that it was due to the MSAntispy's "Real-Time Protection". Too busy right now to determine which "Agent" is responsible, but will post back if/when I figure it out. Anyone else having this problem? |
I'm glad to hear that alternatives to Live365 may be coming on line, as they have made it all but impossible to listen to live streams, which according to their tech support, is what Highlander Radio is. It's a bit frustrating that to listen to Celtic internet streams now requires listening to one of the canned Celtic stations, which do not have the variety or features of Highlander Radio.
It appears that they may be giving different stories to broadcasters and listeners.
Here's their most recent announcement for listeners.
| Just in case anyone hasn't heard by now, most listening droupouts are being cause by faulty routers directing listening/broadcasting traffic incorrectly.|
While we do not have an ETA at this time, the network techs have made solving this their number one priority.
