If they can't be stored natively, a way to store "banks" of 18 stations in my computer and transfer them to the Roku through the configuration web page would be pretty acceptable. Either pick 18 from a long list hosted on my computer, or have several small files, each containing 18 max, transferred as a file name.

Hopefully it could piggyback of the regular musicserver client code, so would be pretty simple to implement, but it would be great to browse through radio stations just like regular music.
Excellent idea! Kinda like the SqueezeNetwork:
I'm not sure how 'up to the task' Roku is in becoming a content provider, but it sure would make for a much more pleasant user experience to have Roku do all of the radio station url maintenance(my recent issues), along with custom formats(xmradio,real,wma streaming,etc) that the client presently lacks. I would also expect techsupport would see a decrease in activity, as the Roku would offer up RokuNet,InternetRadioFavs(saved preferences locally, but urls still maintained by Roku), and Home Server(Twonky in my case). The RSS streaming of News/Weather/Podcasts would be icing on the cake! I know that a transition from hardware provider to content provider would be a major focus shift, but please entertain and discuss the idea. Thanks guys!
