Cache rebuild restored missing programmes
#1
Cannot download Radio 4 Archers or Radio 3 Late Junction for example.
Note, this is not user error. I have been using get_iplayer on my Linux servers since it came out.

You will be treated more seriously if you post a log file. The archers works for me
e.g. yesterday 2019-08-19

get_iplayer Output:

What version of GIP? - Use a current version
Are you in the UK? if not then it won't work
Are you using a VPN? if yes then not supported

Is this a PVR problem?

More info required.

Actually a radio programme like the Archers can be downloaded outside of the UK without a VPN.
Those are not the OP's problem,

More likely the latest update will do the job since the release notes
say this:

Quote:Fixed schedule page parsing used for cache updates. This was broken by BBC changes and manifested as a series of “WARNING: Got 0 programmes...” messages during cache updates. Your cache will not update without this fix. If you find that some programmes are still missing from your cache, use --cache-rebuild to perform a full rebuild.

Ok, I'm on V3.22 in the UK. I deleted all the cache files. Now working ok.

I was merely quoting the FAQ
https://www.squarepenguin.co.uk/faqs/getting-started/

I'm not in the UK, can I use get_iplayer?
You need a UK IP address to use get_iplayer, just like you would if you used the BBC iPlayer service.

I was demonstrating that I could download the archers using a version prior to 3.21

My first helpful suggestion was use the current version
