The example in the release notes gave the command as

   get_iplayer --prefs-del    whatever

ie there's an "s" on prefs, so your "--pref-del" is wrong.

That strongly implies that you didn't issue the command you said you
did, but instead

    get_iplayer --prefs-add --quality=hd,sd,high,std.

ie you had a dot after "std"

That's shown in the output from INFO.
