Well I know that BBC 4 has been causing more issues then the other stations. I have forward that information as well.

Thanks. I had similar problems a couple of days or so ago, on BBC Radio 2's 'Sounds of the 60s'. Similar log entries. (You have to 'search' for that show). Today it is having trouble connecting !
Anyway, not just 'BBC Radio 4' at issue.

I understand. I have forward this whole thread. It is a little hard to troubleshooting BBC as there are lots and lots of channels then the shows/podcasts on top of that, but as soon as I hear anything I shall update people.

This thread's suddenly popular! Which, I guess, just illustrates how big a frustration it is for us.
For context, I have a Duet, in N America. Accessing any BBC station through internet radio search or the TuneIn app results in a specific 'timed out' message. Trying to access any station through the BBC app doesn't result in that - it looks like it's playing but actually does nothing. (As an aside, BBC 7 hasn't worked for quite a while; my guess is that the urls changed in line with its rebranding to Radio 4 Extra).
Adding the specific url (from the other thread linked to in the second post, above) to my favourites on mysb.com DOES result in being able to listen to BBC radio through the player, but it's not an ideal workaround.

The BBC App does need to be updated to remove Radio 7.
However the Radio 4 Extra URL on the BBC "official" page for WMA URLs http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/help/playing
The WMA URL published on the above webpage for Radio 4 Extra is
wheras the one to be used now (but AFAICT unpublished by BBC) is
Although until the current mysqueezebox.com problem is sorted - the above R4x URL will not work for non UK users.

All of these concerns have already been noted and forward to the product specialists.

Has anyone figured out how to make the "complete schedule" and "recent shows" work - I am not terribly tech savvy so if you can talk me through it that would be great ... I have a squeezebox, I want to listen to Chris Moyles on BBC1, and I am in the US.

Which model squeezebox ?
If you have a Radio or Touch install the 3rd Party BBC iPlayer Applet from the Settings/Advanced/Applet installer menu and I think you may to uncheck "Recommended Applets only"
