Hi,

I am running Slimserver 6.3.1 on my DiskStation.

When I tune in to this 128 kbps radiostation http://www.dr.dk/netradio/Metafiler/asx/dr_p3_128.asx
Ö it only streams at 32 kbps.

If I switch to Slimserver 6.5.4 (running on my desktop) the same radiostation streams at 128 kbps.

Is there a known problem with internetradio on Slimserver 6.3.1 ?

The same radiostation also streams at this URL: http://www.dr.dk/netradio/Metafiler/pls/dr_p3_128.pls
For some reason this link donít work at all.

Can somebody help me with a workaround?

Cheers
Smeicy

As the URLs are the same I think the problem is the reporting of the speed rather than speed of the connection itself as there was a big change in the handling of WMA streams between 6.5 and 6.3.

Did you check the network statistics the volume of data being received/sec ?

I think 6.5 has a problem parsing pls playlist for Internetradio - I've seen this with AlienBBC's handling of the DR stations.

That sounds like a good idea Ė but how and where do I check the network statistics?

Usually the command "netstat -s" gives the data at at shell prompt. On a NAS this command may not be present but sometimes the info is available from the admnin web interface. Sometimes the counters are available under /proc

On Windows, you open a command prompt window and then issue "netstat"
