Hi -- two questions about kjzz/kkjz -- the great jazz station on "Slim Devices Picks".

1) Slimserver's "Slim devices picks" lists this station as "kjzz" but it actually points to "kkjz".

How do I change the name of this item so that in "Slim devices picks" it correctly says "kkjz" instead of "kjzz"?

2) This station's stream is MP3PRO. This is a format which broadcasts at 64kbs. Decoded with a standard MP3 decoder, you get 64kbs quality sound. But decoded with an MP3PRO decoder you get sound more like 128kbs quality.

Does the default MP3 decoded used by slimserver decode MP3PRO at full quality already? If not how do I change the decoder used by slimserver to an MP3PRO decoder?

Thanks!

This is hard coded at http://www.slimdevices.com/picks/radio.opml so you can't change it locally. Unfortunately, this file is also not maintained in SVN, so someone at SD will have to fix it. I suggest you open a bug at bugs.slimdevices.com.

Thanks for posting the bug report, as this was in fact bugging me.

Does anyone know the answer as to whether slimserver transcodes MP3Pro streams?

For more on what I'm talking about check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mp3PRO
