Re: WMA streaming on WL-520GU

Hi Jeroen I do have an old mothballed PC sitting about that I could use as a transcoder with the Asus set up to receive. For the time being, I think it may end up being the solution I choose, but it's just not quite as satisfactory as the neat solution Jeff made. Still, it would solve my immediate i...

Re: WMA streaming on WL-520GU

Hi Schwabinger Unfortunately, it's the live streams I'd like to listen to and the only reliable format the BBC provide is WMA 8 encoded. Unless I can fit a version of MPD that will decode it onto the WL-520GU *and* get sufficient performance from the cpu to actually perform the decoding, I think I'm...

Re: WMA streaming on WL-520GU

Hi Jeff, thanks for the reply Spent quite a bit of time today looking through the forums today and it seems you are right - first limitation is the flash and second is (potentially) the processing cycles available to do the decoding. In all honestly, it's starting to look like acquiring a Roku HD ma...

Re: Slug Radio: Internet Radio with NSLU2 / arduino

Another alternative to your station lock would be to use a rotary encoder (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9117). If you kept track of your last station and worked out whether you had incremented forward or backward there would be no way for the station to toggle. Would require a number of digital ...

Re: alternatives to the WL-520gU

I think that provided the WL-520gU and WL-500gP v2 remain available, the most obvious reason to find an alternative is to decode a wider variety of streams. I'm sure there are plenty of people in Britain who would like to be able to listen to the BBC via WMA or 3GPP (http://faq.external.bbc.co.uk/qu...

WMA streaming on WL-520GU

Hi all I'm pretty unfamiliar with Linux, but pretty programming / electronics hacking aware. I'm trying (like many before) to get WMA streaming working on the original MightyOhm radio router. Thing is, I don't really know how to go about it. So far I have followed the instructions on the site, got n...
