View Full Version : Live365 Now Playing Info wrong in SC7

2008-07-19, 07:19
SqueezeCenter has the wrong song info for the Live365 station that I'm listening to. The Live365.com web interface has the correct info for the station. It's just the SC that has it wrong. I think that SN is used for the now playing info. How do i get this to sync or otherwise get it resolved?

More info ... the SC log show this:
Slim::Plugin::Live365::ProtocolHandler::gotPlaylis t (251) Error getting current track: Invalid playlist [08-07-20 12:14:34.3849]

Any body got ideas how to fix?

Enable plugin.live365 debug, should give you more info.

2008-07-20, 13:11
Tried that, but the log doesn't seem to have any more info. So I tried the can on the command and it looks like the enable command is not valid.

Here's the CLI output:

Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
version ?
version 7.0.1
Enable plugin.live365 debug
Enable plugin.live365 debug
can Enable plugin.live365 debug ?
can Enable plugin.live365 debug 0

Am I doing something wrong??

Yep, go to Settings -> Advanced -> Logging, or run from the command line with --debug plugin.live365

2008-07-20, 13:29
under Settings -> Advanced -> Logging there is no entry for the live365 plugin

When I run debug plugin.live365 on command line I get this in the log:
[08-07-20 15:27:44.5641] Slim::Plugin::CLI::Plugin::cli_process (608) Request [debug] failed with error: Bad params!

2008-07-20, 13:43
By command line I don't mean the CLI. Just use the settings page to enable it and then check the log file.

I really appreciate your help, and maybe I'm not being clear.

If I understand you, you want me to go to

Settings -> Advanced -> Logging and change the level of logging for plugin.live365 to debug.

The problem is that there is no entry for plugin.live365 on that settings page!

There are:
(plugin.audioscrobbler) - Last.fm Audioscrobbler
(plugin.cli) - Command Line Interface (CLI)
(plugin.digitalinput) - Digital Inputs
(plugin.infobrowser) - Information Browser
(plugin.itunes) - iTunes Synchronization Information
(plugin.musicip) - MusicIP Mix & Export Logging
(plugin.pandora) - Pandora
(plugin.podcast) - Podcasts
(plugin.radiotime) - RadioTime
(plugin.randomplay) - Random Mix
(plugin.rhapsodydirect) - Rhapsody
(plugin.rssnews) - RSS News Ticker
(plugin.sirius) - SIRIUS Internet Radio
(plugin.slacker) - Slacker
(plugin.superdatetime) - SuperDateTime Screensaver

... but no plugin.live365.

Am I confused or is something else amiss?

I think i read that SC gets its now playing info from SN, so I enabled debug logging for SN and then connect up to live365. here is what i see in the log:

based on CLI output, I don't think the live365 plugin is running, or it's not called that.

These requests/responses show what I get for live365 and for iTunes. Clearly iTunes plugin is there and logging at ERROR level.

debug plugin.live365 ?
debug plugin.live365
debug plugin.itunes ?
debug plugin.itunes ERROR

Good find, there is a bug in the Live365 plugin in that it doesn't setup it's log entry correctly.

2008-07-20, 15:31
With debug logging on some of the other modules, I get this entry in the log, but I still don't see what's causing the problem.

Also, I'm no longer getting the error, but the track title is still incorrect.

I almost remember how to program.

I found the perl module for the live365 plugin and added the logging setup:
my $log = Slim::Utils::Log->addLogCategory({
'category' => 'plugin.live365',
'defaultLevel' => 'ERROR',
'description' => getDisplayName(),

Restarted SqueezeCenter and set the debugging level to DEBUG. Here's what I see in the log now when I start a live35 stream.

desc => {},
refresh => 269,
title => "Neighborhood 1 (Tunnels)",

That info is wrong. It looks like SqueezeNetwork is returning the wrong title info. I'm no longer getting the original error, but the title is still wrong.

Any ideas what's going on?

Does this happen on all stations or just some? Do you have a paid Live365 account or a free one?

2008-07-20, 16:34
I have a "VIP" membership (paid).

It seems to happen on all my presets and on an editor's choice that I checked, so I would say all.
