Radio - no sound

  Pinelea 18:50 22 Nov 2005

Each time I click on a radio station (mostly BBC2 or Saga, so you know my age)I hear aclick of a chord; nothing else.

CDs play OK; so does BBC video (but no sound)

What else can I check?

Thanks for your suggestions. On the way, I found that downloads are perfect, if I start off in RealPlayer. It's direct access from the BBC site that doesn't work. Ho Hum; must go the long way round.

Incidentally, my favourite Queensland radio stations link perfectly from theeir homepages!

Have you tried the links on BBC's Home Page?

Yes, that's where the problem showed up. After months of happily listening to BBC Radio 2, especially the swing programmes, one day a couple of weeks ago, all I heard on clicking on the links was the chord that apparently goes with clicking on a link.

What next, please?

I would still suggest an install of RealAlternative as above; then when you click the links it should get it going.

Thanks for the tip. However, before trying it, and content with the way RealPlayer worked, treating it as a sort of "gateway", I tried a little button-pushing.

To my surprise, the radio programmes opened as expected, as long I didn't try the left-click on the link, that I'd done for so long, but instead did a right-click, and then left-clicked "open". Is there something wrong with my configuration somewhere?

Rember, I've already found I can left clink links on Australian stations, just not on BBC or Saga.
