Hi,

First post.

Just got a Squeezebox Boom today.

Everything works fine, but not some of the radio stations I want to listen to.
http://www.sr.se/cgi-bin/mall/artikel.asp?ProgramID=2321&Artikel=787720

For instance: mms://wm-live.sr.se/SR-P1-High
I also tried: http://wm-live.sr.se/SR-P1-High

When using Squeezenetwork they play fine, but then I can't access my own music, so I wuld really prefer to do everything via Squeezecenter...

Thanks in advance

What OS are you running? The first link you gave is to the webpage rather than to the actual audio stream. However, mms://wm-live.sr.se/SR-P1-High works fine for me in Squeezecenter.

There are a couple of OS specific bugs and issues that might be relevant, or you may need to install the AlienBBC plugin to get this working depending on your particular setup.

Aha, yes, sorry for not including that.

SC is being run on a NAS:

Hard-/Firmware : QNAP TurboStation TS-109 / 2.1.0 build 0904T
SqueezeCenter, Version : 7.2-22900

Yes, I am aware that the link was just plain html, it's the mms feeds I can't play...and they work fine if I hook up the Boom to the Squeezenetwork.

I shall try the AlienBBC plugin as "Sveriges Radio" is mention among those, so that might solve it, but "any RealAudio stream" so I guess that's more of a workaround rather than solving why it won't play mms feeds...

I shall report back.

It may be bug 9277 ( http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9277 ) which was fixed in rev 23016. I think SN has the fix but your SC is only 22900.

IIRC The AlienBBC handling of SR is just parsing of SR web pages to get URLs - it still results in playing wma streams.

I installed the AlienBBC plugin but didn't manange to play anything (not even the BBC feeds).

By chance I tried the mms links again (for the 5:th time or so) - and they worked! Go figure...

Thanks for all the help.
