When trying to play any internet radio station saved as a favorite, I get the above mentioned error.

I've been searching like crazy, and can't seem to find the answer.

I can play anything else from my library with no problem.

Can anybody help?

I have the same problem. None of my radio stations will connect including AlienBBC stations. Music from my music folder plays without problems and I can connect to the Squeezenetwork and play radio stations from there.

Reinstalling slimserver 6.5.1 solves the problem momentarily, but the problem returns after sometime.

Deleting the slimserver.pref file and removing the cache folder as outlined in this thread by Skipperrik has the same effect:

I have tried to disable the firewall and antivirus but to no avail. Can anybody help?

From debugging:

Same problem here I think. I can play internetradio from SlimPicks for example, but I cannot play other stations via the "Tune In URL" menu.
I always get the error: "Error: Can't connect to retrieve playlist"

For exmaple, the URL
http://64.235.213.21:80/CFOXFM
is fine with Linux/MPlayer, while Squeezebox refuses to play it.

SlimServer Version: 6.5.3 - 12361 - Linux - EN - iso-8859-1
Perl Version: 5.8.7 ppc-linux
MySQL Version: 5.0.18

Is there any solution for this?
