Cannot download recent World Service programmes with PIDs starting with "w"
I'm not sure if this is the proper forum for this, but I wanted to bring this to the attention of the community:

This past weekend the BBC has begun using PIDs beginning with a "w" for World Service programs:

Top of the Pops:
Music Extra - The Music of Time – Cuba:

Get_iplayer cannot download using either the --pid or --get commands, reporting:  

19994:  Music Extra: The Music of Time - The Music of Time – Cuba, BBC World Service, w3csvnyc

INFO: 1 Matching Programmes
WARNING: No media streams found for requested programme versions and recording modes.

I am using v3.01-windows.0 and have had no issues with downloading PIDs beginning with either the usual B or P, so the issue for now resides only with these W PIDs.

Thanks for the heads-up. There is no workaround for this, so a new release of get_iplayer will be required to accommodate the new PIDs. Hopefully I can get it out next weekend. Some of the affected programmes are available for download as podcasts, but of course that doesn't apply to music programmes such as your examples.
Problem discussed on the 'other' list, & temporary solution available.

I only use WebPVR and, sometimes, (list of) PIDs on the command line, nothing esoteric like URLs etc.

In the following works;

changing all 7 occurrences (sigh...) of
solves the w3*, w1* problem for Me.

BACKUP your existing just incase of any problems.

Thank you gentlemen. Martin, your temporary solution seems to be working well, so really appreciate the advice.

Cheers Cory
