As per the subject title I have been getting a constant ticking on R3 for quite some time now and it makes listening to the station very unpleasant indeed and I as wondering if many others are getting this problem?
This started happening to me on a Stream 202. I have written to Roberts about it and also to Frontier Silicon as they appear to supply only one R3 stream option. I have had no reply from either.
I have also tried communication with the BBC to no avail.
The problem does not appear specific to the Roberts. I have lucky enough to have a Pure Avanti Flow and it also has the same problem except when using the HD streams.
For example this link has the "ticking" : http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r3.asx
However this one doesn't: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r3_aaclca.pls
(but it cannot be used with the Roberts as they do not apparently provide for the aac format)
Unfortunately the latter stream has become pretty problematical lately!
I would be grateful if anybody could let me know if they are experiencing similar problems.
