iTunes radio not working?

Last year, I used to listen to several electronica (di.fm) stations on itunes radio. Well, right at the beginning of summer, my computer blew up. Power supply, motherboard and both harddrives were ruined. (the dvd drive survived! ) After replacing it all, I have not yet been able to get any of the radio stations to work at all. Can anyone tell me what's up with that? It shows it as searching, or loading, or something, then it stops and doesn't play anything. I'm running XP (hoping to get a macbook for college, which is why I'm on mac rumors, learning as much as I can about apple, their products and the people who use them) at the moment. 2.5 ghz, 1 gig of ram. Good computer, just can't get radio stations to play.

Okay, well to check if it's an iTunes problem or a system-wide problem, try streaming music through Windows Media Player. Does that work normally?

Also, do you have a firewall installed? Does momentarily turning it off help?

Gosh, I've never even tried to use WMP for anything! I used to use it somewhat, but the newest version is so user unfriendly, I stopped using it entirely. How the heck do you stream something in it?


Also, I have the newest version of iTunes and it hasn't worked for several of the last versions I've used. I recall, I think, getting one station to work once. I might try going to the website and importing it as a radio station or whatnot, to see if maybe the link is wrong in iTunes or something like that.

Set your browser to stream in Media Player and it should default back. If it works then you know the problem is with iTunes and if it doesn't work, then you know the problem is somewhere else in your system.

There's a lousy implementation of a forwarding service in iTunes 7.1.1. Don't know if that's true for other versions.

Anyway, I like to listen to Virgin Radio. The link in iTunes (radio>alternative>virgin radio) is

http://pri.kts-af.net/redir/index.pl...0&clicksrc=xml

Doesn't work a lick on my macbook.

It takes you to

http://pri.kts-af.net/redir/www.smgr...pls?service=vr

So I can take the forwarding junk out and try

http://www.smgradio.com/core/audio/m...pls?service=vr

that works fine......

(Edit) follow the links as macrumors cut the printed URLS to fit on the screen.

Hope that helps.....
