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
which plays fine on WMP9 on my PC. I can connect to for instance the Dutch commercial station RTL FM on
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.



Help translate SlimServer by using the
SlimString Translation Helper (http://www.herger.net/slim/)

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:

Tune slimserver manually into the first link (Ref1) and you will hear dutch radio.
