playing unsv streams

I am trying to play .pls files from
It doesn't work when I open it with mplayer or xmms.

So i wanted to see whats in the pls file
I download a playlist.pls
This is what I find:

Title1=Elvis Costello - 'Almost Blue'

I then extract the location after File1=

xmms unsv://
dosnt work

mplayer unsv://nsv.steram....
I get an error:

Linux RTC init error in ioctl (rtc_irqp_set 1024): Permission denied. Try adding "echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq" to your system startup scripts.

I run as root:
Failed to open /dev/rtc : Device or recource busy(it should be readable by user)

Is there a way to play this type of stream?

you are talking about this link:
I get the same thing in my xmms and mplayer :/

I use streamtuner to play streams, maybe that helps, won't work for this stream though ..
