kozmik radio
« on: 20:58:59 | 16 April, 2018 »
I would like to get Kozmik radio back on reciva but it  changed streams  to http://96.31.83.94:8066  and I cannot get this to play on a wfr20.  Is there a way to get this stream to play on the radio? or does anyone have a playable stream?  it works fine in VLC?

http://96.31.83.94:8066 works fine on my Frontier-based Hama radio; the stream format is given as AAC (bit rate 127kbps). This may be the problem - older (aka 'legacy') Reciva radios such as the WFR20 which have v257-series firmware (or older) cannot decode certain varieties of AAC, such as AAC V2+. Reciva radios with v266-series firmware should have no problem. And no, it is not possible to upgrade a v257 radio to v266.

Unless Kozmik Radio also provides an MP3 stream, or can be persuaded to do so, I'm afraid that's it as far as your WFR20 is concerned.
Radios in use: Roberts Stream 93i, Sangean WFR-29C, Technisat 450 & 520, Revo Pixis RX, Hama DIT2010, IR110 & DIR3100.
