Great! I have my presets already setup.

Forgive me for asking such a stupid question, but how do I browse my
presets?

Thanks
Ned

Where it is possible to play a Live365 stream using just a specifically
created playlist, there are two CGI parameters you'll need to play
premium channels: saneID and sessionID. I've been down the path of
rewriting playlists with appropriate values for those parameters based
on a client login, and that way leads to madness.

The Live365 plugin manages all that for you, lets you browse and search
for stations, and also retrieves song titles during playback, so it's a
much better situation. You won't need to create playlist files at all.

For myself, I use the Live365.com website to set up my favorite channels
in the presets list, and browse my presets from the Squeezebox to select
a channel to play.

Cheers,
Jim

On the Squeezebox, select Internet Radio / Live365 / My presets
It's item 6 of 7.

You need to have provided your login information on the Home / Server
Settings / Internet Radio web page.
