It's not working tonight and it's only 20kbps, so I recommend lisenting on DAB or cable/satelite. Can a link in this format be added:

http://audio.musicradio.com/planetrock.asx ?

Yes, that's the url I've added to the radio tuner (which works). From the bottom of the planet rock page.

It sounds much better on DAB :)

That doesn't surprise me, the sound quality is pretty poor via t'internet. You don't really notice that much on the pc, but once it's going through a good stereo...

Unfortunately, I have no DAB coverage where I live.

Yeah I was disappointed about the bit rate that they use to stream on the internet. The Arrow is only slightly better (40kbps).
