Now with added BBC dog in the top left corner. Text a lot lighter and smaller.

Press red for Info has gone.

Takes ages to load (if at all)

I'm on Mendip/stockland hill

Its as if they are loading off the Internet!?

My Youview box is showing the old style slate. How odd!

I am watching on a Freeview TV and YouView box which are both connected to the internet but still have the version of the slate it has been for years with press red option which still works.

It's only my Sony TV with the new Slates. I wish I knew how to upload images.

Could this be MHEG5 vs HbbTV differences?

Shame they didn't take the opportunity to display the local station name as the logo rather than the generic BBC Local Radio one.

They are visualy crisper to look at but as I said painfully slow to load (worse than Bauer's stations) and quite often all that loads is the BBC dog.
