The first prom with an m prefix seems to be Prom 52, m00006pc. I have
just tried to download it with get_iplayer 3.17 using hafhigh and
dafhigh. There did not appear to be any problem, although I did not run
the downloads to completion. The default modes were hafhigh1 and
dafhigh1, both of which used the Limelight CDN.
I was a bit too slow starting downloads of Proms. I missed Prom 1
(although I did get the headphone version of The Planets). I had
problems similar to the ones you describe with Proms 2 and 3 (with a b
prefix) with the Akamai CDN (hafhigh2). These went away when I retried
with the Limelight CDN (hafhigh1) which was also a lot faster. I have
not had any further problems since.
I generally prefer Akamai for television programmes, but it may not be a
good choice for radio.
