RealAudio support, please.

Probably the license is an issue, more than implementation would be. If this is the case, I fancy there are a lot of freaks out there - including myself - happily willing to pay for such. The ability to decode .ra could kind of 'slumber' in the firmware and brought to life tied to the serial number of the device, which is to deliver while ordering and paying the license, to prevent 'magic spreading' over the world.
It would be a small amount, as I think, for each customer instead of a huge one for you for every delivered device, regardless if this function is needed or not.

I hope, this is a suggestion useful enough to consider.

Seconded. I assume it wouldn't be that hard to do, given that there's no problem dealing with uncompressed WAV data.

Can we have support for Vtuner as most UK stations work with it.

Support for UK stations such as

Heart 106.2, Magic FM, Capital FM and Kiss 100 FM (these come up as WMA/MP3 on Vtuner).

UK Asian stations such as:

www.sunriseradio.com
www.clubasiaonline.com

Thanks

No need to SHOUT...

Web based radio stations "broadcast" their content in different formats - just like you can have different compressed audio formats on your PC or MP3/WMA/iPod device. Most often used formats are Real Audio, MP3 and WMA, (not in any particular order) but there are others possible including Ogg. Several Internet Radio products do not support Real "out of the box", partly due to technical issues (fitting multiple decoder software variants into a given memory size and target price) or due to the licensing issues associated with the decoder. I have heard from one radio maker that Real is one of the more "difficult" when it comes to licensing.

Octoshape

Sun Dec 03, 2006 3:14 pm

Hi, everyone,
I have read at Radio Paradise about Octoshape. What it makes is that instead of having a central server serving all the streams, you got a Peer to Peer network with one master, the radio station. This can save lots of money to the Radio Stations, as their bandwith is clearly reduced, so they can even make the stream transport more bits. Downside is that you have to use your precious upload for this thing to work.
Maybe you can get some support from the radio stations as they are gladly interested in reducing costs. And we, its users, can get higher sound quality that way.

By the way, Radio Paradise has now a 192kbps stream. This is highly recommended.

Update: I have seen more radio stations jump into the wagon. For a complete list, see

I agree that sometimes this is confusing, specially for the people that are new to the internet. Real Audio is the audio format created by Real. Dot. Among others, it also created Real Video and Real Media. It was one of the pioneers, so their formats have been changing a lot with time. Imagine that the first versions I tried was even before my computer could handle MP3 properly (we are talking about computers before the Pentium 1 era, with a 14.4k modem, and RealAudio G2). Things have changed a lot, but some radio stations have stayed with old software/hardware. That is the reason you have to support lots of different versions. As far as I know, the mplayer project only have managed to support the most oldest versions (for the newest ones, they have to use parts of the RealPlayer program!).
More about Real: http://www.real.com

Again, the word "real" should have different meanings to you:
"Real" Audio/Video/Media/Player are different protocols, formats, programs made by a company called Real.
"Real" Life is a term used for your life when you are not online. It is yours, after all!

Another vote for RealAudio, since many streaming stations still use it.

Also AACPlus -- probably the most efficient of the compressed audio formats out there (though I have also seen Ogg Vorbis cited as most efficient).

At $149 the price is verrrry tempting!

One more vote for XM radio through AOL site (now that they have many channels for free streaming)

Roku rocks by the way.

I concur.

The uvox streams would be nice.

I have been listening to these almost exclusively on my computer(s) via WinAmp. 8)

Paralell or dual streaming servers

Tue Dec 26, 2006 1:30 am

HI,

Dont know how i'm supposed to explain this but i'll give it a try !

I would be able to connect to both a streamingserver (iTunes/FireFly) and some kind of "Radio - URL serving" server...

That would be a separate service running on my server, just loaded with all possible radio stations and other direct streaming services URL and description lists.

The Soundbar (M1001) would then be able to connect to the service by default (Without exiting and changing streaming service as it is today).
And use it for displaying and selecting station lists.

Is it possible to make the Soundbar to connect to an additional server or service in paralell ?

Live365

Tue Dec 26, 2006 4:10 pm

Most of the radios I like are played at Live365.com.
Although free, their services require a login to listen to the radios - and I've been trying to find a way around that to use Roku 1001, but no success so far. Anyone with a solution?
