I've entered the URL in "Radio Tune In" --
http://1.fm/Stations/Baroque/Listen.aspx?pidx=0 -- but it does not succeed in
connecting. Is there something else I should be doing?

Thank you.

I think I've found out why the music does not start. It is because, when
entering that address in the address bar and clicking on GO, it does not go
to that address directly but to a different address:
http://media.fastclick.net/w/get.media?sid=22900&m=5&tp=6&url=http%
3A//1.fm/Stations/Baroque/Listen.aspx%3Fpidx%3D0
This is to entice you to visit the sponsor. To reach the music you must click
on "SKIP", and then you are taken to the correct address and the music starts
automatically.
Since the SQUEEZEBOX cannot see the "SKIP" notification and get out of it, it
gets stuck there.

Is there a way I can program the address(URL)so it will go directly to the
music URL and star playing the music immediately?

Many thanks.

There's more with more sponsors if you follow that link. A whole
bunch of advertising tricks, including all kinds of pup-ups and
pup-unders, if you look at the page source. Doesn't look like a page
I'd like to visit very often.

Searching for "Otto's Baroque", I've found the following working
addresses on shoutcast.com:

http://64.62.253.223:9030
http://65.19.173.151:8045

Not sure how long they'll last, however.
