Just bought my Boom, hooked it up and added AlienBBC, I am able to stream all the stations but for some strange reason cannot hear any sound on Five Live even though it appears to be streaming, sound is heard for all other stations. Any got any ideas?

I'm in the UK and I can hear the feed when I play it on my pc using squeezecenter.

There is a problem with the BBC 5Live UK URL which AlieNBBC cannot understand.

However since you are in the UK - you would be better off using the BBCiPlayer plugin - this will give you better quality live streams and they will be WMA or MP3 and so no extra load on PC server.

ah I'll try IPlayer, I wasn't aware that it gave you a live feed, I thought it was only old broadcasts, thanks.
