Mine's working fine - I just downloaded the 'Vaduz' episode of Cabin Pressure to test it;

C:\Program Files\get_iplayer>get_iplayer --pid=b01pzv5r --aactomp3 --type=radio

If this is any help;

C:\Program Files\get_iplayer>get_iplayer --pid=b01pzv5r --aactomp3 --type=radio

"Exactly the same problem for me (but with WebPVR) - Radio not downloading since at least Monday (didn't try over weekend, last successful recording previous Friday). Get_iPlayer tries hard but ultimately fails with radio, TV recording works fine."
