Has anyone setup there xbox media centre to receive internet radio ??
if so how's it done ??
goto the shoutcast web page,right click on the yellow tune in buttons. Save the shortcuts to a folder....ftp the folder to your xbox. Now setup your xbox so that it's online.....goto your music section on the xbmc and look for the folder with the shortcuts. Click on a shortcut and wait for it to conect. DONE AND DONE
I used my saved winamp M3U internet radio stations...worked like a charm. Just FTP over and load it like a regular file.
where do you ftp the folder toand how do you connect the xbox online i dont have to setup and account with live?sorry if this is stupid.
The last thing you really want on your modded xbox is a live account. If you've used xbmc you'd know that you navigate the folders yourself, so it doesn't matter where you put it as long as you know where it is. If you can FTP to your xbox then you should be properly setup already for it to connect to the radio stations.
thanks that shoutcast is nice.i use it at work wasnt really sure on xbox but this morning i messed around and it worked listening to music all day and thanks again
Not a problem, now if anyone can figure out how to setup the weather thing for my area I'd be tickled. It's real amazing what the xbox is capable of and feels great to tap into it. It's like being told all your life that magic doesn't exist then discovering that it does.
with the weathe,just goto the settings and then weather....where it says search either put your cities name in or your zip.
BAH, simpler than I thought! Thanks man.
I've got it working with shoutcast stations, but Can anyone tell me if you can use mms. targets ?
mms. is used for local and national radio stations, I want to stream these through the xbox. The radio stations are not on shoutcast.
Can this be done !!
I`ve tried to load those shoutcast tune in buttons, to my xbmc.. but they dont work, i only get the message, "xbox connect failed, check you proxy settings" and how do i do that ?
How do i set up my XBOX, so it is online ?
