I have read the many threads regarding internet radio. When I have been able to get the station urls, I have been able to paste them into slimserver and all is well. I also get the live365 and other radiotime stations through squeezenetwork...no problem...

What I don't understand is when the URL is not available..what do you do? For example, I went to radiotime and selected 950 KJR.am and listened to the stream on my PC where slimserver is installed. I have realplayer installed also.

When I look at the SB3, it states that the station is not supported. There have been trreads on how to transcode the realplayer stream into slimserver...I think.. Like I said, this part I do not understand.

You may want something like Shoutcast, which can broadcast the audio in mp3. You can then point the SB at the broadcast stream

Hi,

KJR currently transmits using a protected Windows stream; it requires a browser and a US IP address.

We are working with several of the large broadcasting groups to offer direct streams for devices like the Squeezebox. Hopefully we'll see these become available in the next month.

I have not tried it myself, but perhaps a product like URL sniffer (available by free download) can give you the direct link you require; then manually add it to streams in the SN web browser.
