BBC 6 Music metadata issues

The BBC 6 Music metadata doesn’t seem to update regularly and gets stuck. Only way to kick it off again is to stop the stream and start it again. Anyone else notice this?

Hi @Simon_Arnold3 ,

Which streaming link are you using to test this?

Highest rate one it would have been, still did it last time I used it which was some time ago. It works for a bit then stops updating.

I’ve seen this behaviour on iOS remotes: more than often metadata stops updating for Live Radio streams, or metadata display is delayed by tens of seconds. Restarting the remote or restarting the stream fixes the issue, “forcing” a reconnection to Roon server. This is not specific to BBC Radio 6, maybe only for Live Radios using METADATA SERVICE (not sure) ?

If you want to run some tests, live metadata for BBC Radio 6 is available here This should be in sync with data available in Roon by design.
