Hi

I cannot decide between buying a slim server and AE1(acoustic energy, can anyone help me.

My main interest is listening to the internet radio. In both the units i can have internet radio without switching on the PC. However the only difference being with slim server i can have control over the url's i want. Therefore can anyone test this out for me please.

Most of the radio stations i want to listen to are broadcasting in either windows media player or real player format. Could someone please try these URL and confirm if they work with slim player or server.

http://66.28.221.209:80/ZJMRWZ5760ZK...uperstars12.rm

Also will i be able to listen to stations where the url ends in
.Pls
.rm
.asx
or mms://209.61.156.185/GONradio

All i want to do is not even install the slim server just use the internet radio side of it.

Any ideas or suggestions

Regards
Ash

This is a playlist - what is important is its content (most probably mp3)

> .rm

Real Player - not supported without server

WMA - should work (didn't test)

Without the slimserver you're limited to the formats which are played
natively in the player: mp3, wav, flac, wma (no DRM).

this is starting to sound like advertising. cross posting isn't
required, and other threads are already going on this.
