Hmm.  Not sure why yours is different.  For --mode=flashaaclow1 You got:

> Connecting ...

which I got with --mode=flashaaclow2 (different server with an 
apparently non-existent stream).  That's screwy in itself - there 
shouldn't usually be a flashaaclow2 stream.  I'll have to look at that 

Regardless, there is still a problem accessing the media servers for 
national radio, at least for the two of us.  The only thing I can 
suggest is to double-check by pinging the address:


If you can ping it, hopefully you can also download from it.  You might 
also want to just keep checking your programme at the iPlayer site.  If 
it's working there, there is a good chance you can download it.
