I have a setup for streaming fm radio to my sqeezeboxes similar to that described here:

http://www.monkeynoodle.org/comp/hardware/slim_radio

(soundcard -> darkice -> icecast -> squeezebox).

This has been working for over a year ... no problems.

However, I just upgraded to slimserver 6.2, and can no longer play the stream.

I have a file "radio.m3u" containing:
http://localhost:8080/radio

xmms http://localhost:8080/radio .......... works fine
mpg123 http://localhost:8080/radio ........ works fine

but the playlist is empty when I play the m3u file above on a squeezebox.

Any ideas, anybody?

The server runs FreeBSD.

Sorry, I don't. But I'm curious to find out what you're using for the fm-tuner on your 'bsd box.

The fm tuner is a d-link dsb-r100. The driver is ufm.ko. The user software is ufmcontrol which comes from the audio/ufmcontrol-i18n port (and my own wrapper, of course, to simplify tuning to favorite stations). I also hacked the Execute.pm module to allow the fm tuner to be tuned through squeezeboxes.

I've been using it all for several years across several versions of FreeBSD, all with no problem.

For the record, I haven't solved this problem, but have the following workaround.

Use "Radio Tune In" on the radio subsection of the main slimserver web page to type in the URL of the local stream directly. Once the stream is being played, it can be added to playlists and favourites, and accessed in the future that way.
