It's fine to report them here too as long as no-one else minds?

As you have rightly guessed, this is down to how the BBC organise themselves into a Radio Player and an iPlayer which has both radio and TV programmes available. When the current feeds are switched off, and I move the RSS adaptor to Nitro, this problem will go away. I'm loath to do it yet as Nitro is still rather slow in comparison. Apologies, I forgot to mention this issue, as I'm normally only concerned with radio programmes.

As above, the current version is at the mercy of the /programmes feeds which are likely to disappear at the same time as the schedule feeds used by GiP. But the migration path to Nitro is there and tested.
