I am running V1.7 of the Core server. I successfully added several manual entries for various Radiotunes stations (or associated stations). Each starts playing fine but then stop, usually within 24 hours. I play Radiotunes 24x7 providing background music. When playing these same stations on a Sqzbox Device, minor interruptions in the Internet connection are typically solved by the Sqz device automatically reconnecting, which could take several minutes to achieve. This is also the case for my Grace digital stereo component box (stereo as in device not 2 channel sound).
This could be a problem or simply a new feature request that would:
- provide an error recovery mechanism for any station playing.
- provide an auto restart function so that if the Roon server application is stopped and restarted, any Live Radio restarts, as would a standalone radio.
This may be an issue with some sort of timer or other “use” detection feature. (long playlists don’t time out.)
