Hi Andy,
In short no, radio programmes downloaded which are saved as m4a do not appear to work 
but I cannot be sure fault lies with Twonky.  

Because of my error with the tagging (No AtomicParsley installed) I can only navigate to 
these files using "folders" but then when selected using Kinsky controller for playing on Linn 
Sneaky I get nothing.  I am still working on this but it seems only radio data is the problem.  
Videos seem fine and I conclude tagging is included with video download.  More work to do 
at this end I fear.  Thanks for the interest.
