Hi all

I'm a new SB3 owner (1 week!) and I'm pleased to say that the SB3 has exceeded my expectations. However, a question:

If my PC running SlimServer is off, how do I access Internet Radio? Currently when I turn on the SB it just tries to connect / wake SlimServer and when it can't find it, turns off.

I just need to be able to listen to BBC Radio 4 while having breakfast without booting up my PC for half an hour!

Many thanks in advance.

You need to connect to Squeezenetwork. This should be the last option in your top level menu on the Squeezebox.

Before you can access Squeezenetwork, you need to link your SB to a Squeezenetwork account. Go to http://www.squeezenetwork.com, and follow the instructions in the relevant bit of the wiki.

Radio 4 is (within Squeezenetwork) under Slim Devices Picks / By City / London (the BBC say this stream is restricted to work only if you are in the UK, however, I think it usually works fine for people outside too).

Thanks for your help - I'll try it out when I'm home later. I think I messed up the SN registration due to changing my email address when the first activation email didn't arrive (or got zapped as spam).

Thanks again.

If you're having problems with the activation email, try Slim Devices Support - sometimes the account can get locked up.

If all else fails, Andyg (the SN guru) can often be found on these forums and will probably be able to help you out.
