Noticed straightaway that the broadcast on the web was at least 1minute behind the web broadcast. Question is, is it the connection I`m on (600k) real player or what?
I think it's to do with the buffering. I listen to netradio a lot, and will sometimes have the same station on on my lappy in the lounge and my desktop in the attic. Walking downstairs from the attic (or vice versa), it often happens that one of them is behind the other one. I presume a faster conncetion might help, but then again, it may just be the BBC website that can't keep up. If the sound is ok (considering the speed of the stream), I wouldn't worry about it.
