I listen to insomnia radio on a stand alone internet radio during the
night and switch to LBC at 4am to listen to Steve alan......but the last
few nights the radio has switched channels by itself ! how does this
happen ? is it a function of the provider...it can't be the radio
I’ve certainly ‘lost’ stations and needed to retune them. They were still
in my memory but the details had changed/ were out of date. However, they
just didn’t work rather than playing the wrong station. Mine were a few
Classical music stations from Boston.
I don’t know how the data is routed from the station to the user.
Obviously it goes via the net but does it go via a central ‘hub’ ( or hubs)
for the services which can swap them around. So, what was on one ‘address’
today could swap another day. Obviously, they wouldn’t swap things often
but may do so from time to time, just as Freeview does.
Just a theory, someone else may have a better idea / understanding.
