    Can not listen to BBC Radio 1 station (from EU server outage)

    Hello,

    I have my list of favorites on my SB Boom. From Thursday I can not listen to the BBC Radio 1 station anymore.

    I also tried to access the station trough the BBC app, no luck there either.

    What to do?

    Best regards
    Matt

    Unhappy All BBC stations not accessible

    I have tried all possible URL addresses for Radio 1, 2, 4 etc and none of them work.I hope this is only temporary.

    Are you using mysb.com or a local LMS ?
    What URLS are you trying ?

    Does this URL work for you for Radio 1 http://bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r1.asx

    I don't listen to BBC myself nor do I understand what the multiple ch's with the same name means (BBC Radio 1 has four different ch's from different cities).
    I presume each city has it's own local content + national network shows?

    However, I was able to play BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, 4 without issue.
    Internet Radio > World > National Networks > BBC

    Well, I have finally been able to connect after many, many frustrating hours.

    First of all, I logged in to the Logitech Media Server and ensure that the BBC iplayer plugin was added. Which worked a treat until I realised that I had to keep my laptop turned on to keep the connection. If I wanted to keep the laptop on, I wouldn't have an internet radio.

    Finally, I reset everything and update the software again (7.7.1 r9557) and did an internet search via location and it worked. If you are using the old urls e.g. http://bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r1.asx
    via the BBC app - they do not work.

    Try this for BBC radio 1:-

    http://opml.radiotime.com/Tune.ashx?...lter=s:popular


    I hope that helps for now.

    Probably best for others to search 'Internet Radio' for BBC Radio 1, as you did, and save the result to favourites, rather than using this link directly.

    This is the official and current BBC Radio 1 WMA URL - it always works. However PC and router cache addresses and it seems your setup cached the ffact that this URL did not connect as a result of mysb.com outage. A complete restart of PC, player and router is a way to empty these caches.

    No BBC on my boom either

    I always listen to Sounds of the 60s by cliking on Internet Radio and typing in Sounds of the 60s in the search box. This is a podcast that chages every week. I can still find it this way but it doesn't play on the boom anymore. I also tried the various BBC channels. Again nothing. I uninstalled the BBC app and reinstalled it. Still nothing. Does Logitech have to update their BBC app ? My version of the software downloads automatically so I din't hink I have to update anything on my boom. I hope someone from Logitech is reading this.

    I currently have 'Sounds of the 60s' playing on my Squeezebox Classic. I found it exactly as you did (on this occasion), by clicking on Internet Radio and typing in Sounds of the 60s in the search box.

    This is not provided by the BBC app, so I would be surprised if that is the problem. But that doesn't help you work out why your Boom won't play it anymore.

    It did take a few seconds to start up - I wonder if that is related to recent BBC streaming problems mentioned in the news bulletins over the last few days ?

    You don't say if you have problems with other radio station streams. It might be worth finding out of your problem is strictly BBC related.
