    Radio Stations: Recommended LMS Settings for getting Album Covers

    Hello

    While using my SqueezeBox as UE without LMS, Album Covers from Radio Stations are mostly displayed correctly.

    Using my LMS (v8.2.0 at raspberry) I often do not get the Album Covers displayed.

    Which Server-Settings are recommended for this feature?

    How do you use a UE Squeezebox with LMS 8.2?

    Plus .. please give an example of a few radio stations which provider coverart when using MySqueezebox but not when using LMS.

    Plus explain how you find the station via LMS - for example putting the stream URL into LMS or using the Search function (which uses TuneIn ... which in turn can provider coverart).

    After switching to "Radio" (Settings, Advanced) You can use it together with LMS.

    For example these Radio-Stations, tried different URLs (searched by TuneIn and search at RadioStations Webpage):

    Antenne Bayern:
    http://opml.radiotime.com/Tune.ashx?id=s42824&formats=aac,ogg,mp3&partnerId= 16&serial=<MY-SERIAL>
    http://opml.radiotime.com/Tune.ashx?...4&partnerId=16
    http://s7-webradio.antenne.de/antenne/stream/aacp

    ERF Pop:
    http://opml.radiotime.com/Tune.ashx?id=s102032&formats=aac,ogg,mp3&partnerId =16&serial=<MY-SERIAL>
    http://opml.radiotime.com/Tune.ashx?...2&partnerId=16
    http://stream.erf.de/erfpop.m3u

    Found the Streams by "Home > Search TuneIn" > typing "Antenne Bayern" or "ERF Pop"

    OK the "using Squeezebox as UE" was confusing, you are really using UE as Squeezebox .
    As Paul said can you give some examples that don't work with LMS?

    While waiting you could post them again but without http www on the front so that they are not seen as potentially dangerous links.

    In the UK TuneIn bans all non UK stations. I searched on RadioNet and found both stations and see track info and the station logo. Did you say you were seeing different artwork for each track on mysqueezebox?
