No, it isn't locally caching, it will just pick up at the current live broadcast, so more of a stop than a pause, lol, but who are we to question the queen of the Pause/Rewind radio. Still has a pause button though - rather like http://www.wdr.de/radio/audioplayer/pop ... &wdr2=true


No, but....even so, I had to laugh at this:

PPS - a vestige of hope, perhaps...does this i-ma'jig 'app' allow for transport control (pause, rewind, etc) of podcasts?


There appears to be no way of doing that with a Podcast, you have to stream them from start to finish, so I no longer stream them. Instead I download the podcast [automatically each week with Radio Downloader]. http://www.nerdoftheherd.com/tools/radiodld/
As an MP3 they are far more useable !

Thanks for that, works great :D

Cheers

Hello all,there appears to be yet another update for the 83i. I have just downloaded it and all seems fine.I have had a quick play with the radio,and from what I can see nothing has changed. I will have a good look through it tomorrow.
Two updates in a week,from Roberts. This must be some sort of record :lol:
I just wish there was some sort of change log from Roberts themselves,oh well,you can't have everything.

From what I have read, this quick firmware followup was planned. It seems to have addressed the non-scrolling metadata that only displayed part of the track information. It is now spread over three lines of text.

It was actually released to correct an unforseen side effect.
This was that if you switched on in FM mode you got a loud pop from the speakers at power up.

So I wonder why metadata display is now different.

Not sure about that, all I know about is the Sound problem on FM.
