    The plugin provides drop down lists of all the channels vs cutting and pasting URLs into the favorites in LMS. With a premium subscription to one of the RadioTunes sites all of the other sister sites are available so there is a lot of different streams available so using favorites for higher bit rates is a hassle.

    Squeezebox vs LMS

    Which "plugin" are you referencing? Squeezebox.com servers?

    Despite the company's claim and "Terms of Service" agreement dated 5/21/2019, stating "...the Platform remains free for users that choose not to subscribe to a Premium Account." their various radio stations kick back errors and refuse to work with my SBTs. Non-premium service is clearly stated to be only for the "30-day trial period."

    I've contacted ZenRadio (https://zenradio.com and https://www.di.fm/) via their website. The first response, generalized, was from a Jovana Borković in Customer Support. The individual did not address any of my specific questions regarding ZenRadio or integration into Logitech Media Server. "We already support Squazebox." The email suggested I sign up for either a 1 or 2-year subscription to "test it out" with the option of cancelation if it failed to function.

    I found the email address for the support department (DI.FM Support Team), but they refused to address anything specific to my questions. The whole experience is very impersonal and not conducive for building trust, particularly when providing access to a credit card.

    DI.FM, Inc. is registered in New York and Radio Now, LLC in Colorado to a Gregory Ari Shohat. Until I have some greater assurance that the service can work with LMS, I'll be taking a pass despite their "free 30-day" offer.

    Playing RadioTunes,ClassicalRadio and JazzRadio without LMS?

    > I've contacted ZenRadio (https://zenradio.com and https://www.di.fm/)

    So did I - months ago. And I never got a response back. So FWIW I hacked
    something together based on the other of their stations. Please give it
    a try and tell me whether it does work for you. I haven't been able to
    test it.

    Presumably on mysqueezebox.com so you would simply have to try it ... no software to install.

    The ZenRadio app uses the same low bit rate (96kbps) streams.

    http://api.audioaddict.com/v1/zenrad...c3/ambient.pls

    It would be great if the app used the premium URLs and added the listen key from a settings value:

    https://listen.zenradio.com/premium_...2951390c0ac1bb

    But it does play at all? That's already good news, because I haven't
    been able to validate this.

    I'll have to dig some deeper. Unfortunately we hardly have any
    information from the network. Here's the most important line I found in
    the little we have:

    "I realize this is confusing without a lot more documentation, but it
    might be clearer if you dump the json return from an auth call for a
    normal member and a premium member."

    :-D So that's what I'm doing now: dump some data to see what's wrong,
    and why things don't work any more.

    I installed the plugin, fired up Squeezelite-X, I can see 39 streams listed with gorgeous graphics, but not a peep out of any of them. <sigh>
