It's a known problem. The iPlayer schedule for each radio station has 'holes' in it where no programme is being encoded. Currently iPlayer can't tell the difference between this hole being a gap between programmes, or because the station is not on air.
A fix is due soon for this. -- Gareth Davis | Production Systems Specialist World Service Future Media, Digital Delivery Team - Part of BBC Global News Division * http://www.bbcworldservice.com/ * 702NE Bush House, Strand, London, WC2B 4PH > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-backst...@lists.bbc.co.uk > [mailto:owner-backst...@lists.bbc.co.uk] On Behalf Of > Christopher Woods > Sent: 01 March 2009 19:07 > To: email@example.com > Subject: [backstage] 1Xtra, Radio1 and Radio 4 "currently > off-air" on iPlayer landing page for a few minutes? > > How come they sometimes show this?
