Downloads are working fine here (using the command line), but I'm also
seeing the 'Wide character' lines. - I have separate shortcuts set up to
create formatted text files of the radio and TV listings. This is the
radio one (should be all on one line):
C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /k get_iplayer.cmd --type=radio --tree >

The command line window is now displaying around 30 of those 'Wide
character' warning lines each time I run the command although the output
file is still fine.
