Internet Radio doesn't appear on my Xbox360

Post by RicoUK » Tue Aug 31, 2010 8:10 pm

I have Twonky server 6.01 installed on Vista Ultimate x64. I can stream my MP3s and my DivX videos to the Xbox and it all works great. I'm very impressed so far.

However, I can't get internet radio working.

I have enabled Shoutcast in the Twonky config and if I http://localhost:9000 and click Music->Shoutcast Radio->All Stations, I do get a list of all stations and clicking a few of those has worked on my PC. It opens Windows Media Player and connects as I would expect.

On the Xbox, If I go Dashboard->Music Library->Twonky Server on Azumi, I do not get an option for Shoutcast Radio.
I created a radio.m3u file and put it in the top level music directory (E:\Music\radio.m3u). I rebuilt the media database in Twonky but it still does not show this in my list of playlists (which all show up correctly, by the way).

Has anybody cracked internet radio streaming to Xbox360? If so, I'd be grateful for some pointers.

Thanks in advance.

Wrong format in the file?

my looks like this:

#EXTINF:-1,(#2 - 143/500) Vocal Trance - D I G I T A L L Y - I M P O R T E D
#EXTINF:-1,NERadio Sweden - Best of Techno & Trance |
#EXTINF:-1,(#1 - 54/1024) Radioseven -
#EXTINF:-1,(#1 - 45/220) Techno4ever Radio - 24 Hours open
#EXTINF:-1,(#1 - 205/500) TranceBase.FM - 24h Vocal-, Progressive-, Uplifting-, Hard-Trance, Techno & more - 128k MP3
#EXTINF:-1,(#1 - 205/500)

I´m using Twonky 6.0.1 on my Maxtor MSS 2 NAS, not an a PC, that´s maybe the reason
I´m also able to use the Shoutcast streams direktly and some Youtube videos too.
