    Radio stations don't get updated

    Glad to find out that there is still a forum for squeezebox user to post inquiries. It is frustrating that many radio stations don't get updated promptly if at all, which leads to failure ("bad request"). It is often difficult to find the URL online. For instance, the station Yoga Chill. The station works in a windows radtio app, a linux radtio app and many android radio apps I have installed but not on squeezebox. Except Squeezebox, all other devices/apps I have also automatically update all stations - never seen a single error message.

    It makes me feel the few hundrends of dollars I spent on the the Touch was wasted because an old android phone could be easily transformed into a media center with an free open source app. Even an old phone is faster and easier to type and search than the Touch. A phone can also have dedicated superior podcast apps. Does Logitech still support the product at all?

    Could anyone kindly tell me how to find stream URL for Yoga Chill? Tried many links, none worked.

    If this is it I found it by searching in the RadioNet plugin.

    Logitech left the squeezebox universe years ago all maintenance has been done by volunteers for years now, and it's a better product than it ever was so give them the credit they deserve.
    Most streaming services do not work automatically in the software, you have to do something, you have to do some diggig around, do that and you will be pleasantly surprised or else stick to your phone and app if that works better for you.

    The default radio station database used by LMS is provided by TuneIn (used to be called RadioTime).
    Updates that are made by TuneIn are used automatically by LMS.

    So the first place to check is tunein.com to see if it is working there.
    If it is not then ... you could try to raise an issue with them.

    There are other radio station data providers ... you do not say which ones are being used by your other systems. However, radio.net is another one and, as mentioned earlier in this thread is available as a plugin to LMS and has the station that you want - provided you are using a local LMS and not relying only on using mysqueezebox.com

    One reason for using LMS is that some stations have moved from using http to using https and this is not supported by a Touch working with mysqueezebox.com.
    However, it is supported if you are using a local LMS because the local LMS acts like a proxy and converts the https to http for relaying to the local Squeezebox player.

    Thanks for the info. I can play Yoga Chill from the plugin in My Media Server (pushed to Touch) but can't play from Touch (mysqueezebox.com) after searching and saving the station. The error message is "http/1.1 400 bad request" or "no items found in the playlist". The squeezer app on android phone has the same error message. I suppose when I searched the station on mysqueezebox.com, it was through TuneIn addon. So I installed TuneIn on my phone and the standalone TuneIn could play the station.

    The URL of the station is https://radio4.vip-radios.fm:18027/s...kmp3-YogaChill It works in a web browser so it should be the correct one but somehow does not work on the touch (tried to open from "favorites", error "no items found in the playlist")

    When I also went to the TuneIn app on the Touch, selected "ambient music" then the Yoga Chill station, still didn't work ("http/1.1 400 bad request")

    It is https, mysqueezebox.com cannot play any https.

    The Touch is about 10 years old and Logitech stopped development for Squeezboxes about 10 years ago as well.
    Logitech maintains the mysqueezbox.com server as a service to existing users.
    The https protocols required by the station are not implemented by the Touch because they were not developed 10 years ago. You need a local LMS to implement the https protocols.

    Thank you everyone for the help. Since https is not support, guess there is no way to achieve the origial purpose of the device (for me), which is to play internet radio stations without keeping a computer on. What a pity. Indeed, for my use, a retired phone on a stand probably serves better because it will play all stations.

    A Pi makes a very good low power server.

    The "computer" required to run LMS is similar to a media streamer such as AppleTV, a FireTV or Roku and with a Touch will generally offer better experience (i.e. audio quality, program info such a track artist, bio, covers) than a modern internet radio or repurposed phone. The same LMS can be used to additionally play audio to other devices you may have such as Airplay or UPNP speakers.

    Unlike a contemporary iPhone / Android, the Touch has a good resale value so do not junk the Touch.
