Anyone else noticed this?

Any idea of a workaround?

Thanks for this post, I was opening a new one!
Yes, it's at least 2 or 3 days the news headlines doesn't work. Yesterday I wrote to them but still no answer. It's really strange they didn't tell  us about this issue. I'm waiting...  :bash:

If you go to their website, the public stream has been removed, and in it's place are the latest/archived bulletins with unique file names. The unique file names pose a huge problem if you're entirely automated and are unable to resource time to change file names manually.

how are you automating this/

I used a live stream within Radiodj which had been authorised by them, but now it doesn't work any more. And no answers from them. If ignitez is right, I will give up their service as I cannot change file names manually...

I suspect this will become more of an issue to them over time, as more people report it. Maybe too many people were utilising the public stream url for rebroadcasting (as we were), but without permission, so they shut it down.

Might look to FSN now. Does anyone know if that plays nice with RDJ & IDM?

Yes, but without saying one word?
I don't like FSN, it's really too long (about 6 minutes) and too much focused on US news.

@plauri, it's the same news bulletin from when they left off. Are you sure the bulletins are updating?
