No, I stumbled on the Blues Radio station via this article (link below) and used the links it provided via the URL entry option on Roon. I used similar links via that source for many of the other stations I listen to via Roon.
Ok. I also monitor that site and you should find all those stations in the roon database (except for some flac streams which use ogg stream start and stop signals to include metadata. Roon stumbles on those)
I think one of the reasons I started using that site is that I used to have trouble with Roon search finding FLAC stations.
Maybe the search engine has improved, or maybe it was operator error…
In any event, I appreciate your help. You wouldn’t be the guy I need to talk to about the problems with metadata from stations like RP?
I really like Roon, but it’s things like the broken metadata taking weeks to get fixed that keeps me from opting for the lifetime membership…
Flac using the magnifying glass.
It’s a known problem:
Sorry, I’m confused by that last message.
It’s a known problem, but the bug report/ticket seems to be saying it’s fixed.
And FWIW, I use Roon on Android and Windows.
This is very Roon. I say that as someone who actually really likes Roon a lot, but also finds it incredibly frustrating too often.
People use Roon for a lot of reasons/benefits. One of those is music discovery. And having good, reliable metadata is fundamental to music discovery and further digging.
But metadata on live radio has been broken for a couple weeks now.
This just seems like it should be a much higher priority. Maybe it is a really high priority and is just difficult to fix.
I don’t know. But it’s not good.
Apologies, I searched for the metadata issue/ticket thread and got the wrong one. It should have been this one
Thanks for clarifying.
UK Greatest Hits Radio stations don’t seem to be playing correctly. In particular, the South Coast region is now playing something called Nation Radio, and the Dorset and East Dorset regions seem to be missing. Would someone mind taking a look at https://planetradio.co.uk/greatest-hits/ and checking the above regions? I suspect others might have been updated too.
Thanks in advance
Hello @jimbo , I have updated
Greatest Hits Radio (Dorset)
Greatest Hits Radio (East Dorset)
Greatest Hits Radio (South Coast)
Please check now.
(You’re right with the others, I’ll work on them)
Checked and all working well. Thanks very much!

FYI, “Always Elvis Radio” of Denmark is currently catagorized under Classical.
Arguably, it does play classics, but it’s definitely not Classical.

Jazz de Ville is not working since the latest update. If I am not active listening I like Jazz de Ville Groove and Jazz de Ville Chill as background (next to Swissgroove).
Unfortunately the Jazz de Ville stations don’t work since the latest Roon update, neither can I find them with the tuner.
Hello @Hans_van_Mierlo , I can play the station without issues. Can you play other stations OK? Has anything else changed?
What is your core running on?
(I have also added the the other three Jazz de Ville stations - they were not in the database)
Thank you @BrianW! I did not link it to the core. But since you mentioned I have rebooted and it works again
I use Nucleus. And even though I bought it (years ago) to have problem free operations, I more and more realize that it is a limiting factor. I already have upgraded the RAM from 4 to 16 because of regular crashes. What is a better core? Any advice?
I’m not a nucleus expert, but do run a nuc, and do not suffer from crashes. It may be worth your while posting on #support:nucleus-support to see if some help/guidance can be found there.
What is the url?
It’s shown in the station info:
But if you need it for copying, it’s
