Thanks for the reply,
Sometime ago had a batch file called list.bat and I could get a listing of BBC1 programs with "list.bat t1" on the command line.When the BBC HD channel started up I extended the batch file so that "list.bat t5" gave me a list of programs on the BBC HD channel and it worked. So when it stopped working I was prompted to start this query. As it happens I use this same batch file to get a listing of BBC radio 4 programs with "list.bat r4" on the command line but this too now miss behaves as well and gives me a listing of BBC Radio 4 Extra interspersed with BBC Radio 4 programs. The relevant line from the batch file is
perl.exe  --tree --type=radio --channel="BBC Radio 4" > radio4.txt
Do you have any idea why this gets a list of BBC Radio 4 Extra programs as well as BBC Radio 4?
