I just tried to add an RSS feed to my favourites. It adds ok but nothing happens when it's selected (Squeezebox says "Checking Stream"). Here's one I tried

http://newsrss.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonline_uk_edition/world/rss.xml

I tried with both SqueezeCenter 7.2 + Squeezebox2 and SoftSqueeze 3.6

I can select audio streams with no problem with Squeezebox and SqueezeCenter.

SoftSqueeze 3.6 gives me no audio output on Vista SP1 (with correct audio output selected). The link for the java MP3 update on the web site links to a dead page on Sun's web site.

Thanks for any suggestions

The RSS feeds are text and so should be added to Info browser and not Favorites - in fact a BBC world RSS is already part of Info browser.

Thanks for your reply.

OK... If I select Extras on the Squeezebox I get

RSSNewsTicker
BBCNewsWorldEdition
Aboutthisfeed
AddtoFavorites

but I can see I caused this by adding the RSS feed to the favorites on the web. A check for a URL ending in MP3 would help here?
