Description Of Issue
High bitrate radio station like ‘JB Radio-2’ is stopping and not auto-resuming when network gets slow.
Station can run for about 2-3 minutes, then it gets cut off. I then need to press the play manually to get it going again.
Could you please add auto-resume for these cases?

I suspect it’s stopping at the end of each track. It’s a known bug which affects those radio stations playing flac streams with metadata via an Icecast server.

Roon are aware.

@BrianW, actually in my case the stream stops at any moment. It is not related to tracks.

Ok, I don’t see that problem.
Is the 192 stream worse than the 96?

Hi @StefanK,

Does this happen with a different stream or station?

I did some more testing and it turns out I was wrong. Stream is really terminated after each track and not at random on both 96 and 192 versions of JB Radio-2.
On the Radio Paradise World-Etc the stream is getting cut randomly, but it also resumes automatically after a short 3-4 second break.
I wasn’t able to find other stations with the same issue as JB Radio-2.

Those stations should really be binned until they work correctly.

I think you’re right, it only causes confusion. I’ll turn them off for now and put a pinned post up explaining things.

I’ll also post the URLs so people can add them to their own library If they wish.
