Postby navneeth » Wed May 31, 2006 6:38 am

It's been displaying Saint-Seans' Cello Concerto and the Carmen Suite#1 for a few hours now. :x

At least it's not stuck on Bolero.

Now playing hasn't worked for me for the last few weeks. Whatever was playing when I opened up the player has stayed there for the rest of the time. The now playing window on the main web-page worked intermittently as well. Now it just says
We apologize but we have experienced a problem with our Music Log. We hope to resolve this problem quickly. In the meantime you can listen to Beethoven Radio and send your musical requests to request@beethoven.com. If you have a question about a musical selection played, and can not find that information on the Music Log, please email the Beethoven Radio staff and they will personally answer your question. You can reach Scott, Nicole and Ryan at request@beethoven.com. We are the world's classical radio station because of you! Thank you for your support and understanding!

How do you access NP? I've bookmarked it and have it open in tab, and it's still showing the pieces mentioned earlier .

I use the "Play Radio Live" button and it opens up a Windows Media player window that displays the "Now Playing" selections.

Any Updates?

Postby BenODen_Mk2 » Wed Jun 07, 2006 1:22 pm

Wait, BigJon, are you saying that it's working for you now? I get it through the Windows Media Player, and get the "We're sorry" message plus Bizet.

Any updates from our friendly IT guys on this? Is it related to cameras not working either? Quickly seems to have passed rather difinitively, ah well..

Edit: AH HA! An emergency data center move! Thanks nicole for the info, what a pain in your behinds!: http://www.beethoven.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=78814#78814

YAY, progress! The Windows Media Player version of Now Playing is showing the current song for me right at this moment, but maybe not consistently. But yay! Signs of normalacy!

What a relief! I came online about an hour ago and saw The Blue Danube in the Now Playing window, although something else was playing. But I was glad that I wasn't looking Saint-Saen's Cell Concerto and the 1st suite from Carmen. :D The Music Log is yet to start working, though.

Yeah. Media Player is showing the Mephisto Waltz, I'm hearing the Kyrie and now the Dies Irae from the Mozart Requiem; but it's not the cello thingie. I'll settle. :lol:

And now we're back to staticicity with a test screen. I'm not even sure I know this Elanor and Franklin piece of which it speaks.. Rosevelt, I suspect but hey, the music is a blank to me.

The Now Playing window and Music Log update within seconds after the start of new piece. Great work, Sarge and Chris. :)

Looks like they're not done tweaking yet! At 4:18 eastern, the log stopped again. Until they declare it done, I'm sure it'll come and go, but yes, Thanks Chris and Sarge, I hate these slog o thons where everything that CAN happen wrong does. Murphy needs to give you guys a break!

Yes, Pathetique was still "up next" for sometime. It was during the 4 o' clock vocal that I noticed the NP working perfectly. Just after I posted, Scott announced to the world that Now Playing was working properly. :wink:

It looks like all three places (WMP, home page, music log) are now working properly. Yeah! :D

And promptly broken again! LOL. It'll come, I hope their hair can stand the roller coaster ride... :D My standalone window and front page display don't work, and I get an error in the WMP one. (I count four places, btw. :D) The music log has been working pretty consistently though.

The error I'm getting if the IT guys want it is :
Line 133
Char 37
Expected ';'

URL: http://www.beethoven.com/nowplaying_gateway.html

Edit: WMP and front page are now working again, though there is a hidden error on the front page, that shows up in the JavaScript console:
Error: syntax error

Thank you. :)

I just came back (was away from the comp. for some time) and I could confirm my guess that it was one of Mozart's oboe concerto on air.
:D
