Does anyone know how to get the Internet Radio station GeorgeFM to play, again ?
I can play other internet radio stations but when I select GeorgeFM from the list of Stations under "Internet radio / World / Find a City / Australasia / New Zealand / All ", it does not play.
I can play it from my laptop, but the Squeezebox just doesn't want to know about it.
I'm using a SB3 and Server 7.5, running on my SlimNas.
Crazy thing is that it played sweet all summer and I've made no changes to my setup, so I'm guessing they've changed their streaming platform :-(
Can anyone else confirm this ?
The URL that's been stored in as one of my Favorites is "http://media.georgefm.co.nz/playlist/georgefm128.m
I'd appreciate anyone's assistance.

I can confirm that that URL no longer works in SB or any other player I try. I went to internet radio > search and found two listings for GeorgeFM. Neither would play. They've probably changed their streaming approach (I find stations do this frequently...I particularly hate the ones that change to a web embedded player that only works from a computer. Many of these companies don't understand that many people accesss streams from other devices (like squeezeboxes and sonos, etc.)
You should contact TUNEIN on the web and tell them that their link to GeorgeFM is broken. They willl sometimes try to fix. Also contact GEORGEFM.
