    London Music Radio

    LMR has changed something this week and both my SB Radios have lost the ability to play this station using mysqb.com. I have been able to get them to work using LMS but I don't want to leave my PC on.
    https://londonmusicradio.com/new-ser...tream-upgrade/

    Previously favourited: http://opml.radiotime.com/Tune.ashx?...6&username=***
    Now gives 'Connection reset by remote host'

    They have posted this > New Stream URL: https://stream.londonmusicradio.com:8005/listen
    But this new stream also returns 'Connection reset by remote host'

    Incidentally, both are working with LMS on each radio and SqueezePlay.

    Is it that my SB Radios can't play a https stream directly but LMS can? ... and maybe something is up with the TuneIn stream?

    Yes / the SB players cannot handle https so they need LMS to act like a proxy.

    You could ask them if they have plain http as well , perhaps on a different port.

    Why did this work?

    Hi Paul, vinnielo;

    This caught my eye...

    I really don't know much about IT details, so I am wondering if you can explain why/how this fixed the op's problem?

    I ask because, while I use LMS, I have a friend that uses tiny LMS on a touch, and another that uses mysb.com exclusively. They have been "losing" stations/streams because of streams being changed to https, and http streams going dark. I will be setting them up with LMS on pCP eventually, but they are not local.

    So, what happened here?

    The OP's original stream died, and the replacement was https. It appears that changing the https stream address to http and port 8005 to 8000 allowed him to stream a https stream on mysb.com?

    Or, am I misunderstanding?

    Jim

    For London Music radio - I tjhink you are correct.

    Many station are moving to https and discontinuing their http service.

    If the http URL (with default port 80) is used - they are automatically redirected to the https service. This causes problem with devices which do not support https.

    A few station seem to be trying to provide a mechanism to maintain a http service (for legacy devices which do not support https) and avoid the redirection to https by having a non standard port - in this case London Music radio is using port 8000. It is not a generic solution.

    Thanks bpa, I understand, the fix was specific to London. I was hopeful that there was a magic bean, but alas...
