you can use xine to listen to radio channels... as you can watch tv on xine check in ~/.xine/channels.conf is there any radio channels listed...

This is digital radio channels (just to be clear) and I have them listed in .xine/channels.conf but when I type

xine dvb://bbc_radio_1

It just opens xines and stops....

Is the dvb command right? I have no problems with the TV channels in the channels.conf file.

I'll give mplayer a go tonight and get back on the results. Any further tips on the command to use would be appreciated

Thanks

an extract from my channels.conf

in this case to listen to Radio 1

darkstar$ xine dvb://"BBC Radio 1" and this should work...

have you tried browsing the dvb channels using the xine gui?

Yeah thats pretty similar to mine. I've actually got it working, (infact it probably always was working). I issue was there is a much longer 'delay' before the readio channel beginning playback (bout 10 seconds whereas tv starts after about 4 seconds)

Is there any settings to reduce this time delay, I'm pretty sure all the delay is doing is buffering the stream.

I didnt realise xine gui could browse through channels (I actually use freevo) but I'm going to have a look at that now thanks

yeah the radio channels take a while, before you hear any sound compared to tv... i've noticed that sometimes it can take more than a minute... yeah could be the buffering...
