    Favorites Problem

    Hi:
    I use my Squeezebox to listen to National Public Radio (NPR) on both station WNIJ and WILL. But a few days ago, my radio would not connect to either station. There was a message: "Connection Reset By Remote Host"

    I tried using the search feature on the Squeezebox, entering WNIJ first and the WILL. This resulted in the same message. I then sent an Email to WNIJ asking what has changed. They responded with another link: https://peace.streamguys1.com:6815/live-96k.mp3 Next I went to my Favorites list on my home computer at "Mysqueezebox.com" However, when I try to add this link, nothing at all happens. No grief message. Nothing blinks. In the past, when I tried to add a link that is not compatible with the Squeezebox technology, there would be a message warning that the link may not play on my device. But I was able to add it to my favorites, even if it was not playable, and I would just delete it after testing for a connection.

    But now, nothing. It seems like my favorites page on "mysqueezebox.com" is inactive. Is there some sort of reset or update I need? Please try the link on your device to test it for me. By the way, I can connect and listen to WNIJ via my home computer through the WNIJ website. I am very confused at this point.

    Thank You,
    Ron Reeland

    Your URL is playing fine using LMS (Logitech Media Server).

    I don't think mysqueezebox.com can play URLs starting with https, not sure, I don't use mysqueezebox.com. Others may confirm.

    Thank You, Ronnie.
    I added the link you furnished to my squeezebox favorites. Now I can enjoy WNIJ again. But when I visited the other link to Northern Public Radio, I could not come up with the link you gave me. I clicked on this: "Download MP3 Streams Link" A little window pops up indicating I should open the download, but I cannot get any further to access or find the link you gave me. I really do not know what I am doing. Can you explain step by step so maybe i can learn something.

    Next, I tried to listen to WGN Radio out of Chicago on my squeezebox. It is in my favorites and worked fine a week ago. Today, no dice. So I used the search function on my squeezebox by entering simply WGN. That does not work either.

    In the past, I managed to add stations or streams to my favorites by using this search function. It will not work on WNIJ as I previously mentioned. Very frustrating. It seems the stations are changing to different streaming formats making my current links unplayable. I also listen to WBBM all news radio out of Chicago. That station revised to an app called AUDACY. I was able to add that app to my squeezebox and then access WBBM thru it.

    And I am clueless about "Logitech Media Server" I will Google it and such to see if I can learn something about it and what it can do for my problems. Please bear with me. I have 5 Squeezebox radios around home and work, so I can listen at different points in my home. I really treasure them and internet radio in general. No broadcast reception problems, but more technology involved, to be sure.

    Thanks for the replies:

    For years there have been two ways to use squeezebox devices -

    1) "out of the box" - direct to a "web server" mysqueezebox.com, where you get an account, add favorites, use services like Pandora, etc. In this configuration you don't need a "server" running on a piece of hardware (e.g. PC, Mac, etc). But, with this method, you can't play music from your "library" (ripped and downloaded CD's). But it's a perfectly good (up until now) "internet radio" player.

    2) The other method is to install Logitech Media Server, free, on a piece of hardware in your home. Alot more functionality, even back in the earlier days, much much much more so now.

    Its my understanding that when the squeezebox line was dropped, so was further development of mysqueezebox.com, but to their credit, Logitech (and Michael) keep it up and running for legacy purposes. Meanwhile, LMS has flourished in stability and functionality thanks to the develpers here and this community. So, mysb.com will never be fixed to solve issues that come up.

    It seems the radio stations are starting to switch to the "secure" https from http. Mysqueezebox.com will not play https (although some may "play" because the stream is redirected to a http).

    The frustration that you are experiencing is the same as a friend (250 miles away) I had setup using just mysqueezebox.com, complaining to me his stations were dying. I sent him a raspberry pi running picoreplayer (under $50USD) to stop the complaints .

    So, it you have a pc, mac, NAS, etc for now, just download LMS (I think you can get it from mysb.com - ??) and give it a try. Go to the "Logitech Media Server" category in this forum for help.

    This is the link for WNIU


    http://peace.str3am.com:6840/live-48k.mp3.m3u

    WNIJ and WBBM are geo bocked, so no luck there

    I use opml and radiotime and tunein

    A lot of times, just drop that s from the http and it loads and plays fine.

    There are Favorites in my list that don't always play, as Reset by Host or have a limited count allowed for connections. I keep them on preset buttons, and just keep poking it.

    To avoid restrictive streaming hosts, I use Tunein to find the full path there; you can load this into the Favorites list, like this:

    http://tunein.com/radio/WILL-FM-909-s29583/

    Radiotime opml transfers to Tunein with the partner ID from Logitech and if you have a Tunein account, set your username instead of the x's. Normally I wouldn't use these two pieces of info but I want them to see that our traffic still is active from the SB universe.

    Example:

    http://opml.radiotime.com/Tune.ashx?...username=xxxxx
