Hello All

Got my Squeezebox last week and delighted with it, absolutely fantastic.

I'm having trouble working out how to tune in and then save a radio station. The station in question is 'The Jazz' it's a UK DAB station and has a listen online option.

The URL is www.thejazz.com the url for the player is http://www2.capitalfm.com/staticweb/onair_players/onair_thejazz/player/onair_thejazzIE.html

Now i've tried entering this into the tune to url option but nothing happens.

Could somebody please help, i'm not techie minded, but would love to listen to this station - we can't get DAB where i live.

Cheers

Dicy

Thanks mate, thats fantastic.

The only snag is that it keeps losing the connection every few minuted - is there anything i can do to improve this. All the other stations are fine

If I use http://mediaweb.musicradio.com/V1/playlist.asx?streamid=91 on IE I get the station playing through Windows media player. IF I place this in SS playlist I do not get anything. Any suggestion?

I have the same problem - SS can stream this to winamp, but not to my SB3 playlist???

Hi,

I have used the URL "http://mediaweb.musicradio.com/V1/playlist.asx?streamid=91" to tune in TheJazz, which at the moment seems to be working ok, no drop outs. However, the display info is not very pretty! My SB3 only displays the url and not what is playing.

I don't know how these different types of streaming media presents infomation like this. Is it down to the type of url connection or is it something that needs a bit of work on my SS to make it work properly?

Cheers

Steve
