[access-uk] Re: BBC Sporting Events Streaming On Sonata, Presently Cricket

Hi Paul,

If you fancy adding the BBC Streams yourself, here's how to do it.

Once you log into:
http://blind.stationlist.net

Select the link which reads:
Add a station from our database to your list of stations.
In the Country combo box select, United Kingdom.
In the States combo box select, All States.
In the Genre combo box select, Sports.
Press the Space Bar on, Search Database.
The Streams you want start with:
BBC Event Stream 11
Check the ones you want with the Space Bar.
Finally, press the Space Bar on, Add the selected stations.

It's the same procedure for adding any other radio station or Podcast.

Tom.

Hi Jackie,

Apologies, I have just re-read my email, and did not express myself precisely. The

BBC Events Streams (Sports)

Is not part of the standard issue radio lists, it is however available as an extra menu, which can be added upon request to your radio stations menu, as are so many, many more.

So, phone on Monday and Luke will add it to your list in a few seconds. Of course, it might be possible to do so on the web site yourself, providing you are set up to do so. I have looked at the site a few times, but have not yet tried to add anything myself, usual fear of fouling it up totally.

The idea came about when I had asked for the recent Roses cricket match to be placed on my stream, and when the match was over, to have that stream removed. I asked if all 20 could be placed under one selection in the menu, so I did not have to continually take up his time by adding and removing a single stream as the days go by. Luke said he would think of the best way to do it, and he has.

Paul Benson.

Hi Paul

Great idea if I could find it? I have no menu you describe within the Radio Stations section on my unit, so do you need to have it added?

Intrigued.
Kind Regards,

Hello all,

The Sonata has added a new feature to the radio listings. It is called:

BBC Events Streaming

and is classified as Sports.

This is the title of the menu, and once selected, gives you the options of all 20 BBC live events coverage.

It is not possible to tell what is on each stream. One has to go through them all, about 5 seconds per selection, less than 2 minutes in all, to work out which streams are live. The BBC are continually changing what is streamed on which stream, so just going through them is the only way. It will of course, take a short while, to determine if the commentary is that of the event you want. Once a particular sports event is allocated a stream, that event should always stay on that stream number until it is concluded, which in the case of County cricket, is 4 days.

Once the menu is opened up, the male voice will announce the streams one by one. Upon selecting, say stream 1, there will be 3 responses.

1. The Sonata will beep about twice, and if the stream is live, start streaming.

2. You will hear a recorded message from the BBC. This means the stream is open, but the sporting event is suspended for some reason, in the case of cricket, rain or bad light. Commentary may start again later in the day.

3. If the stream is closed, the beeps will continue. After about 5 beeps, just move along the menu to the next station and select O.K..

At presently, all streams are for County cricket. I do not think the Test matches are included, I think that is broadcast on Radio 5 Live Sports Extra, so no need to appear here. What will be streamed once the cricket season closes, and the football begins, will be interesting to observe. Who knows what the BBC have in mind for the 2012 Olympics, with respect to using these streams, as a possible supplement to the Radio 5 live broadcasts.

Lastly, after having moved from one stream to another while searching for your particular broadcast, do not let the beeps run out, you get about 10 beeps to decide to select, or move along the menu. If you let the beeps run out, it appears you have to switch off the Sonata and start from the beginning again.
