As you may know, we recently added a SHOW ARCHIVE section to the Polka Jammer website for the convenience of those listeners who are unable to tune in to our shows durng their regularly scheduled days/times. However, we have been receiving reports from dialup listeners of excesive buffering. We resorted to obtaning a backup dialup feed to test the signal. It turns out that the feed coud not support the bitrate we had the shows encoded in. In other words, the bitrate was too high. In addition, we received reports of audio that sounded speeded up on older computers.
As a result, we have re-encoded all shows in the SHOW ARCHIVE to a bitrate the dialup feed can effectively handle, and we downgraded our main dialup feed to better handle the thoroughput of dialup modems.
If you know if any listeners who use dialup, please let them know that we have repaired the dialup feed and they should be able to tune us in.
For those of you who use CABLE/DSL, please be aware that the SHOW ARCHIVE section is provided to both CABLE/DSL users and DIAL-UP users as a means to be able to hear our programs at any time you wish. It is NOT intended as a substitute to listening to our programs during their regularly scheduled days/times.
