I've had occasional trouble listening to the 700-7xx channels in the past 
because parts of the software (can't remember what) are unable to cope with 
streams that don't have a video component. This may have changed in recent 
releases, however.

I gave up listening to radio via myth. As an ex-courier, I'm used to having a 
constant stream of Radio 2 going through my ears. Not much point recording it.
