    Classic FM

    Hi Guys

    I'm a long time user of Logitech Radios on Windows and am running the latest version of LMS. In the past few years I've got into classical music. But maybe something has changed with my fave station ClassicFM (UK Classical Radio station) and how they stream their music.

    Consequently, I have a small issue that is really driving me nuts! I have Classic FM set up on preset 2 on my Logitech Radio running LMS on my Windows10 PC. It all works/plays/sounds fine. The url I'm using is
    http://opml.radiotime.com/Tune.ashx?...e=my_name_here

    But, if I try and use the same url when I'm in 'mysqueezebox.com' mode on the radio, I get the message 'The Server has been reset' (or something like that) and the station won't play. Am I missing something really obvious here? What am I doing wrong? *All* my other presets that I duplicate on MySB play fine except for Classic FM.

    I've managed to locate Classic FM url from another source
    http://media-ice.musicradio.com/ClassicFMMP3.m3u and that plays fine when I'm on MySB.
    but I'm not seeing any album/station art

    So, my question is: is there a url I can use on MySB that plays ClassicFM AND displays the station/album art?

    Cheers all.

    The address you've posted points to a secure (HTTPS) stream.
    I don't believe MSB is able to handle these streams.

    Broadcasters started getting spooked about not having secure streams when Chrome stopped playing them when embedded in a secure website player.
    So the transition is happening. Wiser broadcasters would keep a non-secure stream running somewhere.
    RadioFeeds UK & Ireland.. an up-to-date radio directory for your Squeezebox/Transporter/UE Smart Radio.. available from the mysqueezebox.com App Gallery.
    Bonus: our RadioFeeds LMS plugin also lists AAC and the BBC's high-quality HLS streams on top of what's available in our MSB app.
    Now with over 1000 registered users, it's available for Logitech Media Server (and Squeezebox Server, SqueezeCenter and SlimServer).
