View Full Version : How to control Shoutcast stations

It seems not all available stations show up on my SB2 either through my Slimserver, or via SqueezeNet.

For instance, I use to be able to get to the BellyUp4Blues station awhile back, but it no longer is an available station on SB, but it is still available on the Shoutcast web site.

Can I control the available stations somehow?

Thanks from a rookie.

That's correct. By default only the 300 most popular streams are
downloaded from shoutcast.com. This can be configured in Server
Settings/Internet Radio (max. 2000).

Ahhhhh.... now I get it.

BellyUp4Blues seems to hover just below or just above 300 (Shoutcast currently lists it at 385). That's why it is available sometimes and not others.

Thank you so much for your help.
