    How to name my own favorite radiostations on SlimServer

    How do I name my own favorite radiostations on my SlimServer? I can enter a radio url like http://www.dr.dk/netradio/Metafiler/...ometer_128.pls ("DR Barometer", great alternative music) by going to "Radio Tune In", and the music will play, but...
    If I add "DR Barometer" as a favorite together with my already added "KCRWMusic" (which is a pre-programmed station in SlimServer), the two stations turns op like this in the favorite list on SlimServer and Squeezebox:

    1. kcrwmusic
    2. mms://wmscr1.dr.dk/e02ch09m?wmcontentbitrate=300000/.wma&MSWMExt=.asf

    Surely there must be some way I can name my own stations something usefull?

    It's not a problem on www.squeezenetwork.com, but I can't figure how to do it on my SlimServer?

    .pls seems to be the source of the problem?

    I have just discovered that I can add the same station and get the name defined by choosing the same stations .asx stream instead of the .pls stream:

    http://www.dr.dk/netradio/Metafiler/...ometer_128.asx

    But still, if the station are only available as .pls, how do you give it a name?

    You can do this if you shut down SlimServer and edit the slimserver.pref file. Not very convenient, but it works. The favorites section in my pref file looks like this:
    Code:
    favorite_titles:
      - KUNC 91.5 Greeley
      - KUVO 89.3 Jazz Denver
      - KGNU 88.5 Boulder
      - KRFC 88.9 Fort Collins
      - Radio Free Colorado
    favorite_urls:
      - http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/kunc/ppr/kunc.pls
      - http://www.kuvo.org/stream/kuvo1.pls
      - http://buster.kgnu.net:8000/KGNU_live_med.mp3.m3u
      - http://stream.krfcfm.org:8000/veryhi

    How to edit Slimserver pref

    Could you tell me how to edit the slimserver.pref file? I need to change the name of some stations to a short tag. But in notepad the pref file opens up in an essentially unreadable format. What do I use to get it to open in a neat list like JJZolx shows that can be edited? Thanks

    I used NoteTab Light. It's freeware:

    On windows, wordpad will do fine.
