Newly installed 2.99 not listing only 1 TV programme


I just updated to 2.99 on Linux (Mint 18) using both manual install and from repo and when I issue "get-iplayer" or "get-iplayer --type=tv" I just get:

1:    BBC iPlayer Feeds - -, BBC Web Only,

INFO: 1 Matching Programmes

However, listing radio using "get-iplayer --type=radio" gives a full listing and I can download programmes.

I'm guessing the BBC have changed the way their feed is structured?


Force a cache refresh with --refresh and follow our instructions to provide a proper report so we can see what is happening on your system


Same here, I installed the PPA, but can't get any tv listings only the radio ones.

Version 2.99 is broken.

You'll need to install version 3.0. It won't be packaged for your system yet so you'll have to either install manually or wait for the PPA to be updated.

You can install manually using the instructions in the wiki, but it's probably better to wait until the PPA is updated.


Great work .. just installed v 3.00 .. that was fast work ...
