Looks like you're on you're own there pal. Is it only talksport that your having probs with?

Presumably others are making the most of your spare bandwidth...:-)

It's the missus who spends hours listening to TalkSport but I've just downloaded Abacast and found it works as claimed - streaming is the same as for RealOne etc even on modest dialup, on which I get very few breaks in the streaming no matter what the radio station.

As I said I have dialup and have had no problem with Abacast and it's the first time I've used it today.
