so I am running alienbbc without a hitch and therefore I thought i'd be able to listen to radio broadcasts of football games thru my squeezebox but unfortunately, i get nothing out of the box after inputing the stream address in radio tune in.

here is the rtsp link that I thought would work with the squeezebox.
rtsp://start.real.com/rd?pid=nfl_rbn&url=packers/live/packers.rm&pcode=nfl&brand=nfl&cpath=radio&rsrc=nfl_gb&rpcontexturl=http://www.nfl.com/fieldpass/includes/radio&rpcontextwidth=500&nflreferer=http%3A//www.nfl.com/fieldpass&has-player=true

does anyone know what might be preventing it from working?

I'm running slimserver 6.3.1 on osx 10.4.6 and everthing in alienbbc seems to be working properly.

thanks for your help. I would love to figure this out for next weeks games.

here's another link that I tried to access the nfl fieldpass audio through and this link also resulted in no audio through the squeezebox.

Playing the last URL you posted on RealPlayer resulted in a security message saying the link was no longer valid. Also the messages was in RealAudio 5 format.

If your valid source is in RealAudio 5 format you need to install other codec as the standard AlienBBC installation of mplayer has RealAudio8 builtin but other codecs need an external library support.

Test your URL with mplayer on a command line and see what message is displayed.
