    Thinking of getting a duet and have a question

    I've been looking for something that can play all my music plus an internet radio station that I listen too. What I want to know if it can play this site http://jungletrain.net
    I think this is the link that is used when I try and listen with iTunes. http://stream6.jungletrain.net:8000/

    If anybody can let me know if this works with the duet that would be great.

    This URL played for me using "tune in URL" -- http://jungletrain.net/128kbps.m3u

    You can always install SqueezeCenter and SqueezePlay and try it yourself.

    Download and install Squeezecenter from here:
    http://www.slimdevices.com/su_downloads.html

    You can read about SqueezePlay here:
    http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/SqueezePlay

    It is an emulator for the Duet Controller that can also act as a player on your PC. It is currently in beta so might not be perfect, but will give you a pretty good idea of how everything works.

    I've downloaded the squeezecenter but I can't get it to play at all. Is it because I need the duet in order for it to play, or do I need to do something to get it to work?

    EDIT:Never mind I think I found out the problem why it won't play on my computer. Is it supposed to play through itunes on my computer and not squeezecenter?

    Under extras, there is a program called SoftSqueeze which is a squeezebox simulator.

    Oh one more question, How can I remove a radio station that is in my favorites? I must have clicked on it and added it to my favorites when I was trying out the softsqueeze. I've found the selection on the softsqueeze but I don't see an enter button. What do I need to hit?

    EDIT: never mind i figured it out.
