Let me start by saying that I love my new Squeezebox v3. I am enjoying my music in flac more than ever. Thanks!

I need help with connecting to particularly the Dutch public radiostations Radio 1, 2, 3FM, 4 and 747AM. They are .asx streams but I really don't know what that means. One of the URLs is
http://www.omroep.nl/radio1/live64.asx
which plays fine on WMP9 on my PC. I can connect to for instance the Dutch commercial station RTL FM on
http://media.rtl.nl/rtlfm/livestream/rtlfmbroad.asx
als so an .asx WMP9 stream.

These streams are also part of the Slimdevice's picks on SqueezeNetwork, e.g., Internet Radio>Slimdevice's picks>By City>Amsterdam NL>Radio 1|News&Sport. No PlayPlay. I have also tried adding them to the favs at SqueezeNetwork. No avial.

I coould really use a good primer on internet radio, because I was away when the info on this topic was handed out :-(. How can you tell if something is a WMA stream or MP3 or what? Anyone got a link for me?

Thanks again.

Have you tried pasting this in the "Radio Tune In" box of your
slimserver's web interface?

A simple rule of thumb: .asx -> wma. .pls/.m3u -> mp3.

Do not open the .asx files, just download them and open them with a texteditor. If only you see a link like another .asx do the same again.
In http://www.omroep.nl/live/radio1-breed.asx I found this link: http://livemedia2.omroep.nl/radio1-breed

And in this file was written:

[Reference]
Ref1=http://livemedia2.omroep.nl/radio1-breed?MSWMExt=.asf
Ref2=http://145.58.33.27:80/radio1-breed?MSWMExt=.asf
Tune slimserver manually into the first link (Ref1) and you will hear dutch radio.
