Good point! I will give it a whirl this afternoon and post my results.

The test stream worked perfectly for me on Rythmbox. (I say Rythmbox, because of some stupid file that went missing, that rendered all KDE apps., including Amarok, useless.)

Glad it worked for you!

FYI... If you sign up and the stream does not work we will do everything we can to get it to work for you. Just post here or send us an email and we will help. We tested the stream with all different systems before we launched (even Mac) and found it worked with all of them so folks should not have trouble. But if it does not work, and it we can not fix it, then yes we will refund your $$$!

Woohoo! It works! :D What a difference from the free stream! I guess I should spring for some better speakers now.

For the record, I am using Hardy Heron. The link works with Rhythmbox and Totem but not Amarok. This is OK, I can listen to a clear stream once again. I really do like hearing the DJs but no so much the commercials.

Thanks folks for all your help!

(now if I could just stream to my car......)

I love the Bose. I got a pair for airline travel, but you are right, they sound great with the stream. AND....no more whining from my ^*%^$&%%^ ever-present printer fan!

Chris....question...Is there anyway to stay logged on in the Member's area? I am wondering if it is possible to set up a "remember me" protocol so we don't have to log in every day to get the stream. Or maybe the username section could simply be prefilled so we would not have to type in the email address etc. Thanks!

Hi Jamie,

I'll see what I can do with a login script like that, but for now the easiest thing to do is to bookmark the stream link. You can use that link anytime, anywhere without having to login, as long as your account is activated on the server. Thanks!

I'm double streaming here. I've got Chicken Run playing over that Beatles thing, When I'm 64.

I prefer the chickens.

It wouldn't be so bad if I could seperate them into left-channel and right-channel.

Double streaming, again. I've got the Egmont Overture playing over some trumpet work I don't recognize.

Hi ya'll,
I rebooted the insertion computer and matched the audio levels a bit better so that should help the silence problem. Thanks for listening! :D
