Hi, I'm new here but have owned several players for several years.

Is it possible to pick up BBC Radio on a Squeezebox 2?

(I'm running the server software (v6.2) on a Solaris SPARC box.)

You must be new as the discussions about AlienBBC can't be ignored :-)

What you need is mplayer and the AlienBBC plugin:

Good luck!

Note that you can also get several BBC feeds via SqueezeNetwork, without using AlienBBC (or slimserver, for that matter!). For example, check out Internet Radio / Slim Devices Picks / By City / London, UK. If you get the URLs for other feeds you can enter them on the Favorites page of the squeezenetwork web site after you log in.
