GiP Errors Tonight

Starting this evening, I'm getting the following errors on all attempts 
to download HiDef radio downloads using GetIPlayer v3.23:

ERROR: Failed to download URL (3/3):*p08l7cgq_m000ldbs_cUnknown_1596528177531.mp4*~hmac=1a62dbee88eb7a62bfe51df5ec55705349eea484d3f369744fa2684aeffbbdc8
ERROR: Response: 500 Can't connect to
ERROR: Ignore this error if programme download is successful

I presume this particular server is down, because ultimately GiP seems 
to find another one, and the download succeeds, although somewhat 
slowly, but the latter may be because I seem to be suffering very slow 
speeds just now ...

Response time (latency): 839 ms, Download speed: 0.7 Mbps, Upload speed: 
1.5 Mbps

... but is this the cause of the above error as well?  Anyone else 
having this problem?
