Re: Soundbridge Radio Stations Setup Through Browsers (or any other software)

Another addendum after re-reading one of your previous responses.
My router is by Sagemcom - Model E31T2V1
Thank you!

Re: Soundbridge Radio Stations Setup Through Browsers (or any other software)

thanks for the update.

I 'think' that that is a Modem, not a router. 

Do you have two pieces of equipment?  The Modem is first, cable input wire from Spectrum; then a network cable from the modem to the second piece of equipment, the Router.  If you have wired devices (the Mac, for example) the router will have a network cable going to Mac.  Radios are wireless, WiFi.

It's also possible that your version of the Model E31T2V1 is both a Modem and Router.  If you look on line you might see some confusion about the Model Numbers of some Spectrum equipment.  They do this on purpose, of course.

If you can get the browser access back with the new equipment, let me know what kind of music/news you prefer and I can help you with some URLs.

good luck!

Re: Soundbridge Radio Stations Setup Through Browsers (or any other software)

Alfred,

I've found something you can try and it's easy!

You said that you could see or find the ipv4 address(es) of your radio(s).  If so, you can use this calculator to find the equivalent address for your ipv6 modem/router.  Try this before you change your equipment.  This is of Academic Interest!!

to use this, enter your original address, looking something like this: 192.168.1.132, into the big box, click "GO>>" and now see the 'new' Mapped Address in the small box below.  Use this in your browser and see what happens.

Re: Soundbridge Radio Stations Setup Through Browsers (or any other software)

Sorry for this very long delay! I had two deadlines I had to deal with and could only work on those.

Now I am back.

So you see in the open how I got confused between router and modem!
Well, I did look at the router and it is also Sagemcom. I have gone to some of these pages to see how to interact with it:
https://www.portforward.com/sagemcom/fast-5280/
https://forums.timewarnercable.com/t5/Connectivity/New-Sagemcom-FAST-5280-Admin-Login/td-p/166941
BUT both of these don't work for me.

Thank you for the IPv4 but it is really above my level - sorry!

Also as a way to answer your question, I am forwarding below an old frame-grab I took when I could still access my settings. It will show you the kind of stations I want to replace: Traditional Persian Music (Radio Darvish) - which keeps changing over time: the latest stream being now at https://freeuk6.listen2myradio.com/live.mp3?typeportmount=s1_37782_stream & Classical Chinese Music  - all of them without commercials nor speaking (like this one but I could not find the streaming link)

The Spectrum replacement unit (modem or router, we will see) is already on its way, having been scanned and entered into its system (and I will pay $5 extra every month). O well...

Whenever you find time to help this poor student, but don't worry. I appreciate any assistance!

Re: Soundbridge Radio Stations Setup Through Browsers (or any other software)

I hope that the new equipment will restore your ability to access the web page of your radios.

Sorry --  I don't have any expertise in finding URLs of this type of music --  

I did try a google of "Persian Music internet radio station URLs" but didn't come up with much.  Did find this:

http://radiodarvish.com/Radio_Darvish/Home.html

on which page there is a URL to listen to.

It's harder to find URLs these days since every station wants you to use their site or use an app which does not help us looking for urls to play.  Good luck with your search.

Glad to help.

ps -- If you would want 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s music, that's what I have!!

Re: Soundbridge Radio Stations Setup Through Browsers (or any other software)

Thank you, Phil.

Yes, Radio Darvish was the one I had mentioned. There are not many of those :-(

Of course Spectrum did not send the unit yet as promised, so there is nothing new to state on that level!Just to be sure, in case I do find a station's url to replace the obsolete ones, were you saying that there is a way to enter that one from "within" the Soundbridge Radio through the regular Roku remote?

I have looked at the manual and that wasn't that clear.
As always, thankful!

Re: Soundbridge Radio Stations Setup Through Browsers (or any other software)

Apparently all Spectrum needed to do was to register my modem (or router, not clear) and now I can finally see my Roku settings in a browser!

What an ordeal!

Thank you for being there, Phil!

Now that Radio Darvish seems to stream as a "video stream" - that what the inspector says...
https://freeuk6.listen2myradio.com/live.mp3?typeportmount=s1_37782_stream_330939126
instead of a regular stream - even though it is just audio and plays fine in a browser window but NOT on my Roku.
I wrote to them... We will see what they say.

Again, thank you!

Re: Soundbridge Radio Stations Setup Through Browsers (or any other software)

Eureka, found an alternative route through Streema!

http://109.169.23.22:37782/;

Maybe this can be useful to others too searching for particular stations.

Re: Soundbridge Radio Stations Setup Through Browsers (or any other software)

sort of.....

This was a bit of a false lead.  When I fiddled around with this since your note, I think that all of the places that the SB is 'programmed' to search/browse are places and stations that mostly don't work any more.

But, see the User Guide pages 13/14 or 29/30.  You can check through some of these; I couldn't find one that would work, even when I already knew that the station works now, but with a very different URL than it had some years ago...???  So, SB can't keep up with the changes, using this method.

So, inserting your own URLs that are known to work, through the computer browser, is the way to go.

Hooray!!  

Really glad this works again!  Seems pretty weird, tho, doesn't it?  But then again, it's a CABLE COMPANY!!
