I know this is a VERY old topic now, but I wonder whether anyone has actually noticed any improvements on the problem of signal dropouts when using Listen Again or listening to podcasts?
Personally I rarely have dropouts but if I pause a Listen Again stream or a podcast for more than about 30 seconds, then after about 10 seconds of restarting there is guaranteed to be a dropout, meaning the programme starts from the beginning or I get a 'station not available' message and have to reselect it to restart it. I'm slightly wise to it now in that I always check how far along I am in the programme when I pause, so I can more easily get back to where I left off. But it's still extremely annoying. Even if they can't fix the actual problem, the ability to restart from where you last listened would alleviate almost all the frustration.
I'm not based in the UK, if that's relevant – I seem to remember that people in the UK had fewer problems with this.
