Hi all, I'm brand new to squeezebox, and in fact ordered a SB3 yesterday and am eagerly awaiting it. I have a Roku R1000 radio which works great, but wanted something to connect to my stereo and was really impressed by the Squeezebox. However, after trying to use the web interface of the dedicated slim server, squeezenetwork, trying to understand what AlienBBC is, the fact that I may need it, and MPlayer and Java and a whole bunch of fiddling...i'm really having second thoughts about my decision.
My issue is that I play a lot of streaming radio stations that are specifically .asx feeds, and although not compatible with Itunes my Roku has no problem playing any stream (other than Real of course), nor does it require dedicated server software or additional plugins etc. Don't get me wrong, I've bought the SB3 on the basis that in so many ways it beats the Soundbridge 1000, but can someone please tell me the SB3 does play WMA streams, and just as importantly how the heck do I get them onto the SB3, because I have had no luck with getting them on the slimserver web interface.
Yours, very desperate and pathetic.
