Station data not loaded, WCNH
« on: 12:38:08 | 20 December, 2017 »
After several attempts I was able to get Reciva to find station WCNH and add it to My Stations list. Following the link to Reciva.com I learned that it had already passed the stream test which leads me to believe I don't have to wait the 24 hours their email indicated I might. However once I tried to play it I got the message "station date not loaded." Now what do I do? Any suggestions? Thanks, Jim Ferriter

I changed the streaming URL of https://radios.reciva.com/station/60514 which I hope will solve the problem. It can take 24h before the updated station can be found if searched for on a Reciva radio.

I'm now getting message "this station has FAILED the Reciva stream test (last checked: 2017-12-21; broken since: 2017-12-21)." This is unbelievable. Radio Denon and Mutant have no trouble at all playing it.

This is unbelievable.

1. Please remember that station maintainers like Zeewier are volunteers. They are not employees of Reciva or Grace Digital. They are maintaining the radios station database in the spirit of helping their fellow listeners, and in their own free time. And talking of time, many of us on this forum are located in a European time zone.

2. Zeewier responded to your original request within one-and-a-half hours. He pointed out at 9:51pm GMT last night that it could take up to 24 hours for the change he made to percolate through the system. You responded in just over one hour, and again ("This is unbelievable") five-and-a-half hours after his message, at 3:19am GMT. Patience, old chap, patience!

3. Not wishing to further ruffle already ruffled feathers, and in a spirit of helpfulness, I can report that WCNH plays without problems on my Frontier-based radio, streaming MP3 at only 64kbps, with a sampling rate of only 32kh. This is not exactly a hi-fi quality stream. There are plenty of other classic music stations out there which stream at higher bit rates and sampling rates. Linn Classical, for example.

Thanks Dogmatix.

Just for information, the station edits that I do as a volunteer are entered in the database that you access on https://radios.reciva.com. These edits are then picked up by my Reciva contact at Qualcomm who will then double-check the edits and apply them to the database that is searched by radios. It is this second step that is the reason for the 24h or so delay. This delay may at present be longer because my contact at Reciva will be off until the new year.

BTW, you can tune in to WCNH if you put http://peridot.streamguys.com:7340/classical.m3u into your My Streams.

Thanks, Zeewier,
That url did it, works fine. For two weeks I've been knocking my head against the wall trying to get it. "High-fi" quality or not, they're local, I like their musical selections, and they carry the Met Opera broadcasts, which many do not. I am most appreciative of your efforts, without which I would still be stumbling around trying one url after the other -- or would have given up. If it should end up working in My Stations, great; if not, this is just as good as far as I'm concerned.
Thanks, again, for your help
Jim Ferriter

The system will not let me update https://radios.reciva.com/station/51285 because the streaming URL is already in use by https://radios.reciva.com/station/60514. It looks like the system will not accept different stations sharing the same URL. I will notify Reciva, maybe there is a workaround.
