No more Beethoven Radio

Postby lew » Sat Dec 14, 2002 3:17 pm

Hi everybody,<BR>I would just like to say how unhappy I am that I am no longer able to listen to Beethoven Radio. I cannot seem to download Macromedia Flash player. It downloads, but nothing happens - even after I reboot! I know I must be doing something wrong. I have e-mailed support a few times, and they are trying to help me.<BR>Nicole Marie, I especially miss your program, and hope they can get me set up to listen to you again.<BR>I wish you all Happy Holidays!<BR>Elly :confused: :confused: :confused:

Hi Elly,<P>Have you tried the IM tuner? You should be able to get to it from the beethoven.com home page. You can also get the free download from <A HREF="http://www.imnetworks.com/imguide/imguide.epl." TARGET=_blank>http://www.imnetworks.com/imguide/imguide.epl.</A> I believe it uses more bandwidth than the other receiving software, but as far as I know it doesn't require the Macromedia Flash player.<P>I hope this helps.<P>Jeff

I get Beethoven sporadically now.<P>I keep losing the stream, lots of pausing and buffering...<P>Also, if the station plays for awhile, I get a popup message that asks me if I want to continue listening. When I click 'Yes,' I have to go through the process of initializing complete with either the breaking of the piggybank ad, or that REALLY annoying Blue Guy that thanks me for chatting with him -- IT'S NOT A CHAT BUSTER, IT'S AN INVASION!!!<P>ah, feel better now. :)

Well, at least it takes a little longer between broken piggy banks and the blue guy in the box now. I was a little surprised to see the Bart Simpson ad back last week, but it's only popped up once that I have noticed.<P>It used to go off every four hours, but yesterday lasted quite a bit longer (I'll have to see how long it goes today).<P>And here we are complaining about being provided some of the greatest music in the world, for free.

Hi Elly,<P>Were you able to find Beethoven.com in the list of stations? I believe it is in Band L, which is Classical. It should be station 02.<P>If that doesn't work, try adding it to the Z band. In the "Play from URL" field, enter all of the following: http://tuner.imband.com/tuner/GetStation?StationID=http%3a//tuner.imband.com/tuner/GetStation?StationID%3dBeethoven.com%2520_mp3%3bUserID%3dus_f374bbc741eb4174aa54bf7a4327142 8;User ID=us_f374bbc741eb4174aa54bf7a43271428<P>Hopefully you can copy and paste it from this note. If not, I would be happy to email the info to you.<BR>I don't think you HAVE to have info in the Website field, but you can add this if you wish: <A HREF="http://tuner.imband.com/tuner/GetStation?StationID=Beethoven.com%20_mp3;UserID=us_f374bbc741eb4174aa54bf7a43271428" TARGET=_blank>http://tuner.imband.com/tuner/GetStation?StationID=Beethoven .com%20_mp3;UserID=us_f374bbc741eb4174aa54bf7a43271428</A> <P>You might also be able to get some help from the online support that is available.<P>Good luck.<P>Jeff<p>[ 12-17-2002: Message edited by: Jeff Dutton ]

Have you tried WinAmp? That's what I listen with and I have very little trouble with it. Right now it's been playing for about 4 hours with no problems and no pop-ups. Check it out.<A HREF="http://www.winamp.com" TARGET=_blank>WinAmp Homepage</A><p>[ 12-17-2002: Message edited by: buikemap ]

Hi folks,<BR>I am now listening to Beethoven radio - and I did miss it so much - especially Nicole Marie - and the others, of course. <BR>I think the problem was with my Internet security settings. I was always getting the message that my security settings prohibited Active X.... etc. I am not particularly computer literate, but I think the setting kept me from downloading things. Anyhow I changed them enabling a few more things - and now I can hear my favorite radio station!<BR>Thanks to all of you for taking the time to help me. I am so grateful and I hope you all have a Happy Holiday Season!!<BR>Forever grateful,<BR>Elly :) :) :) :) :)

Hey, that's great news! I know I would miss Beethoven Radio terribly.<P>I still think you might want to try using IM Tuner if you have a chance (and the bandwidth) to play with it a little. It does take more bandwidth, but in my opinion you can't beat the sound quality.<P>Jeff

Hi Jeff,<BR>I did download it - and that might have been part of what helped. I think my high security setttings were keeping me from downloading stuff.<BR>Thanks again,<BR>Elly :) :)
