WCBS 880 - Not Working

Up until about a week ago this station was working fine with link https://wcbs880.radio.com. Something must have changed and it is no longer working, “playback was interrupted because track failed to load.” Easy to get station stream via browser at audacy.com or radio.net, but those don’t work with Roon. If there is no longer a URL that works with Roon is there any way to get an external (radio tuning) source into Roon?

Hello @femanburch , I’ve added WCBS 880 to the database for you (US only). Please check if OK.

Thanks Brian. Found it, looks like Audacy url, it starts to play but cuts out after 1-2 seconds. I’ll fiddle around some more, but in the meantime if u or others have further guidance …

Hmm, that’s annoying. The stream tester shows a working stream, but you’re right: Roon itself stops after a couple of seconds. I don’t know why - the underlying chunks are 6s long.

I haven’t found an alternative yet.

I’ll inform the Devs.

Thanks for checking/confirming this issue, and for reaching out to the Roon folks. Not the primary use of our system, but my wife has gotten used to popping the news on in the morning and nice to be able to do that with the home audio system!

Hi @femanburch /@BrianW - I am unable to reproduce an issue with this station, is this behavior still current? If so, can you provide the exact link causing the issue?

The problem still exists.
Here’s the link.
