Can't find Swedish Stations

Hi Guys!
My very first day with Roon, so I will restrain myself a while from claiming to be a member of the team. However, from my northen sight of Stockholm, I find that our best national radio stations are not available. Let’s start with this one, of utmost interest:

http://http-live.sr.se/p2musik-aac-320

This is the not yet for the public released high bitrate version of the Swedish radio (Sveriges radio) P2, the always seriosly curated classical music channel.

This is similar to the web page P2 - Klassisk musik | Sveriges Radio, however you will not get the high bitrate over the official web page.

If of interest to compare with the lower bitrates, they are found here along with the other official channels of the well renowned Swedish national radio broadcasting:

[192 kbps AAC as M3U]
P1

P3

P4 Plus

P6
https://sverigesradio.se/topsy/direkt/166-hi-aac.m3u


What a tragedy… I prepared this for almost an hour and finally got this message:
Sorry, new users can only put 8 links in a post.


For the sake of clarification, you cannot live without this radio station after 12:00 pm:

Hello @Bjorn_Konigsson , they should all be there . If you search for Sverigesradio with the magnifying glass you should see the full set.

Oh dear, you need to search in one word “sverigesradio” to find the most useful of them. The others (regional radio stations) are found as “sveriges radio”…

Should be useful if both ways of spelling were supported for all of them.

Thanks for prompt reply!

I get 32 results, including regional stations, when I search for Sverigesradio. Do you get something different?

Alternatively, Live radio > Categories > Sweden gets them all.

Hi Guys.
I got the same - 32 radio stations when searching for “sverigesradio”.

Problem is that searching for the native company name “Sveriges Radio” will provide only 27 radio stations - and you think that it is all… That was what happened to me.

Unfortunately, it’s the radio stations of audiophile interest (e.g. P2 musik) is not captured by this more concordant search.

And even more discouraging is that the useful links (AAC) is not working. They might need to be updated according to the following:

320 kbps
https://http-live.sr.se/p2musik-aac-320

192 kbps AAC
https://sverigesradio.se/topsy/direkt/2562-hi-aac.m3u

96 kpbs AAC
https://sverigesradio.se/topsy/direkt/2562-aac.m3u

32 kbps AAC
https://sverigesradio.se/topsy/direkt/2562-lo-aac.m3u

Kind regards,
Björn

Hello @Bjorn_Konigsson , I’ve tweaked the descriptions of some of the stations, so that Sveriges Radio now finds all 32.

However, the links for P2 in our database work and agree with your URLs. I’m a bit confused there…

Thanks Brian, and sorry for confusing…

However, since a week or two, I can no longer invoke the AAC-links via Roon. It end up with a message (after the Started live radio message): “Playback was interrupted because a track failed to load.”

This does not happen with the MP3 links. They are working fine.

Invoking the same links directly from my ProJect StreamBox S2 Ultra (or via Foobar 2000 or the web browser) works fine.

Maybe I have to issue a ticket to the support.

Again, sorry for confusing.

Kind regards,
Björn

Are you using a QNAP by any chance?

There have been problems with their codecs not playing aac files. There are some threads on the forum about fixing this, for instance

Ooops!
I am running my Roon Core on a Synology NAS (DS1519+), and updated the Disk Station Manager software some three weeks ago. It could of course have ruined the basis, also for me to run AAC files.

Thanks!
