    Internet radio playlist items become file name

    Hi
    After switching from a Dec 12 nightly to a Jan 9 nightly the items in an internet radio PL now show up as the name of the PL file. This is the same for the players and the web interface. They are rtsp streams and I am running alien bbc v2.3. Before I set the file to read only it actually renamed the items in the file. The urls are unaffected. My PLs with local file are OK.
    I have cleared and rescaned, deleted cache dir with no luck.
    I have provided a sample of the PL below. After scanning and browsing to the PL called Betalounge.m3u, each item is called "Betalounge". With a few hundred items named Betalounge it gets confusing.

    Any suggestions?

    thanks

    This is one reason you should not use playlists for radio stations...
    OPML favorites are the right way to create a hierarchy of favorite
    radio stations.

    I made a change recently that caused this, the intent being to copy
    the title of a playlist to the items in the playlist if they didn't
    already have titles. I'll take a look and see what can be done.

    Thanks for responding Andy.
    Is there a sample somewhere of what a simple opml file should look like.
    I don't need it to have any structure just a single list. Perhaps in some of the internet radio stuff that comes with SC?
    I have a script that builds the m3u so i will just have it make the opml instead, once I find out what one is : )

    thanks
