    Hello, I have a Roku Soundbridge M1000 radio, and I can get it to play my music from iTunes just fine, as in all the tracks I have in the regular iTunes library. However, I can’t get it to access the iTunes radio streams. I have tried rebooting the radio. I don’t know what else to do. Any help would be much appreciated.

    You mean the radio stations in the presets? Or streaming radio links from iTunes?

    Do they not show up, or do they show up, but don’t do anything when you try to play them?

    It wold also help to know what version of firefly you have, and what kind of machine you are running it on — windows, mac, linux, etc. And an example of a radio station url that you can’t play would also be helpful.

    Short answer is that it probably should work, unless it’s a codec that the soundbridge doesn’t support. Can you play the station from iTunes? If you cut the address of the radio station in iTunes and paste it into one of the presets on the soundbridge will it play?

    Also, have you tried http://www.radioroku.com? It’s a nice web site to set up the radio stations on your device. I know that doesnt’ solve the problem, and I’d be happy to continue to troubleshoot it, but that might be a decent short-term workaround.

    Hi, it was the streaming that was unable to play.

    Happily I was able to get everything working again, by resetting the router and then restarting the Soundbridge.

    Thanks for your help!

    OK, let’s continue this post. I have a Roku M500 soundbridge. I am using Firefly Media server (1.0 svn 1359) w/ Boujour to bridge my iTunes (7.0.1.8) music on my PC (Windows XP SP2) to the Roku. I can run my iTunes playlist great (thanks for your previous help).

    Now I want to stream internet radio through my iTunes to my Roku. I can stream the stations fine through my computer speakers via iTunes. I can also stream the Roku internet radio presets to my stereo, but I cannot stream the stations running on my iTunes to my Roku.

    I suspect this is a RTFM but I cannot find how to set this up.

    A little assistance.

    Why not just have the soundbridge stream straight from the internet…?

    Seems a bit pointless having an intermediatary..
