WDR Germany does not work

Thu Nov 21, 2013 4:08 am

The connection on my Roku unit to WDR 3, Germany on MP3 128 suddenly stopped working about two weeks ago. It has been working perfectly for several years. Other German stations are working normally. The Flash connection to WDR 3 works on my computer. I am in the UK.

Does anyone know the reason for this problem? There seems to have been a technical problem with the connection to some German stations a few months ago, but I thought this has been resolved.

Thanks for any advice,
Philip Parish

Were you watching it via a private channel?

No, via my normal broadband connection, shared with other devices and works fine.

Please explain what you mean by Flex.

I am using a Roku Home Music unit, updated to software Ver 3.0.49, which it says is up to date.

OK, so you're talking about radio. I don't know if your Roku radio allows you to add streams, if it does try this one for WDR2
http://wdr-mp3-m-wdr2-koeln.akacast.aka ... wdr2-koeln
Otherwise, they may have just changed the stream. Have you tried retuning from your radio's display? Is your firmware up to date?
But better to check out the radio forum elsewhere on this site as Knuckle suggests, there should be people there who can help you.

Philip,

WDR 3 plays A/OK on my following devices:

Roku SoundBridge Radio (R1000) with firmware version 3.0.44,
Roku SoundBridge M1000 with firmware version 3.0.44,
Pinnacle SoundBridge Home Music (M400PX) with firmware version 3.0.51,
Roku SoundBRridge M1001 with firmware version 3.0.44,
Roku SoundBRridge M1001 with firmware version 3.0.52.

Are you trying to play WDR 3 from a Preset or as a Favourite?

Are other WDR stations playing on your SoundBridge (which I assume is a Pinnacle Home Music)?

Greetings

Sorry about the radio / video confusion.

Dupondt, thanks very much for trying out the station on various devices.

Strange to say, I tried WDR 3 again this morning and it now works ok! I am connecting on a Preset, and it has definitely been "down" for about three weeks. None of the WDR streams were connecting, although other German stations (eg Bayern) were ok.

I just wonder if they changed the stream in some way, and it has now been corrected.

Anyway, many thanks for your help with this.

Philip
