I haven't been able to connect to any of the Radio Hongkong stations for the past few days. Even the entries in the Staff Picks/By City don't work. What's going on?

I've had the same problem - wondering if HK radio has restricted users to local HK only as the other radio station (Metro) still works

Post some SB player URL links, we'll try them.

The links that have stopped working from the World -> HongKong list are:

http://www.rthk.org.hk/live1.asx (HKRT 1)
http://www.rthk.org.hk/live2.asx (2 ... etc)
http://www.rthk.org.hk/live3.asx
http://www.rthk.org.hk/live4.asx
http://www.rthk.org.hk/live5.asx

All of which complain "no valid audio streams were found in the playlist" even though they play find on a PC.

Having a play around I found that VLC player under Tools -> Media Information shows the stream as coming from:
rtsp://202.177.192.111/radio1

And although SqueezeNetwork won't accept that as a favourite it will accept this:

http://202.177.192.111/radio1
http://202.177.192.111/radio2
http://202.177.192.111/radio3
http://202.177.192.111/radio4
http://202.177.192.111/radio5

Which now works on the radio.

Wierd?
