Re: BBC radio timeout?

I should have said that the problem occurs on both my SB3s and my 2 SB Radios. NK.

Hello nkat,

 

Have you tried re-searching for the streams on your Logitech Squeezebox Radios instead of using the favorites you saved through Internet Radio?

Re: BBC radio timeout?

Well, thank you but a problem remains.

Installing the BBC applet from Triode [thank you] on the SB Radio worked a treat. I could even set my 6 preset buttons to the BBC stations when playing.

I then turned to the SB3s. I followed the advice given by the learned bpa on the slimdevices forum, thread: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?p=694999#post694999 .

 

I logged into mysqueezebox.com on the PC and changed the BBC streams in Favourites from [mainly] Radiotime uRLs to the BBC wma stream URLs on the iPlayer link page to which bpa referred us - http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/help/playing_radio_progs/real_wma_streams .

No joy. Same result, leading me to suspect that the BBC sniffs my geo-ip and won't connect.

And no, Mr Logitech poster, the streams found by searching through the Internet Radio search on the SB did not connect.

Ths SB3s are connected to decent DACs on the hifi set-ups. I should like to be able to use them again. Your help and suggestions are welcome.

NK.

Hello nkat,

 

That is why I did not say to use the Squeezebox v3. Just the Squeezebox Radio. Right now a lot of users have found using the Logitech Media server with the older players seems to work and by the way I am a girl.

Re: BBC radio timeout?

Firstly, my apologies for the misplaced 'Mr.' to Ms Cat of Logitech.

 

Secondly, I should like the BBC radio streams, in addition to its World Service, to be restored on my SB 3s. That's their main purpose in this house and, I suspect from the number of entries and threads on this forum and others, a large number of other houses outside the UK who purchased the devices. It's been possible through mysqueezebox.com until a few days ago and Logitech haven't said it  is beyond them to restore it, or explained why it should be.

 

Thirdly, I have tried the Logitech Media Server connection.It won't work. Message is "Can't connect to server. Right to connect, left to go back."

 

Can Logitech do so, please?

Re: BBC radio timeout?

I am also having problems with my sb3. Living in Germany, none of the .asx urls work, at least for the national BBC stations. Some including radio London and WM do, I haven't gone through all of the local ones ..

The mms fix from bpa in this thread,

do. But it's hardly ideal.

I have created a bug report in the developers database and one of the developers has promised to look into the problem.

 

Bug report http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17923

 

Regional and local mms URLs do not vary between UK and non UK users as they have the same quality and so they work.  The WMA mms URLs for the national stations are different because they are different speeds IIRC 128kbps for UK and 48kbps for non UK.

Re: BBC radio timeout?

A fix has been made so that the BBC Radio App should now be working again on mysqueezebox.com.

 

Also the BBC radio app menu has been updated so that Radio 4 Xtra is there and works.

 

For BBC world service use URL from this page http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/institutional/2009/10/091029_internetradiomobilelinks.shtml

Re: BBC radio timeout?

I am in the US and have no problems using the BBC Radio app to listen to live streams on my Squeezebox. However, the "Listen again" features don't work for programs from the last 7 days.

 

Has anybody else encountered this and does anybody know how to fix it?

 

Thanks
