I have installed SlimServer_5_4_x_v2005-02-05.exe
and have installed this plugin.
When I scroll to the plugin the SB stops for a while.
I can see plugin in Slimserver prg but in under SB plugins.

Please advise how to get PublicRadioFan Plugin to work
Kind Regards
Tore

Ämne: [slim] PublicRadioFan Plugin

I've been using the PublicRadioFanBrowser plugin, which accesses the great
www.publicradiofan.com website that maintains a database of shows played on
Public Radio Stations (and Sirius and XM radio). When you activate the
plugin, it will allow you to select Music vs NonMusic, then list the shows
available to play at the current time. The website itself shows the
programs divided by genres but the plugin does not show genres for me but
rather a list of shows followed by the genre in parentheses.

While I don't program in PERL, scanning down the code I see references to
genres that seem to point only to Music vs NonMusic. Can anyone who does
code in perl take a look and tell me if this is correct? And if so, do you
see any way to add Music Genres?

Thanks,
Bruce

Here's a list of the Music Genres on Public Radio Fan:
Blues music
Classical music
Country/bluegrass music
Eclectic music
Folk music
Gospel Music
Jazz music
Latin music
Live Music/Variety
Native/ethnic music
New Age Music
Older popular music
Pop/rock music
R and b music
World music

As far as I know this plugin is currently unsupported by the author. But it
works for me in a WinXP SP2 environment with minimal setup. I use
Softsqueeze and a SlimP3. I think others have it running in a MAC
environment too.

The only modification to the file that is recommended is to edit the file to
reflect your time zone (uncomment one line that defines your time zone). I
placed the file in the Program Files\slimserver\server\plugins directory.
Restarting Slimserver, I made sure that it is checkmarked in Server/Plugins.

Using the remote I arrow down to "Internet Radio" >"PublicRadioFan.com
Streams" or via "Plugins" > "Internet Radio" > "PublicRadioFan.com Streams".
When I right-arrow at that point, I see "Please donate to
PublicRadioFan.com" "CONNECTING" then after it connects and the display
switches to "Public Radio Genres (1 of 2) MUSIC (or down-arrow to
NON-MUSIC). Right-arrowing from those yields a list of programs to play.
Right arrowing from a program presents the (1 or more) playable stations.
Pressing 'Play' at this point plays the stream.

Do you seem something similar, and at what point are you stopping?
