Hi Discovery, I'm afraid the instructions you've followed so far are no longer much use, since the BBC changed the format of the streams in February.

Take a look at the solution proposed by pushedtempo in this thread, see above: http://www.runeaudio.com/forum/bbc-radio-t546-20.html#p5633. The only possible snag is, that according to the minim website (http://minimstreamer.com/index.html) it is "free to download and use until 31 December 2015" - we don't know what happens after that.

This has been a very stable solution for me.

The instructions for installing minim etc. worked perfectly for me, until they stopped working. I'm guessing it was once I'd shut my Raspberry Pi down some settings got lost. Any idea how I can debug?

Thanks

I was able to get the BBC stations by adding them in MyWebRadios using the urls listed on

They are still working from these addresses.

I'm not sure how long for though as the offical BBC line is to move to HLS and ditch all other formats.

I have been using the MinimServer for the BBC streams on my Pi B+ with HiFiBerry Digi+ for the past 15 months. As the SD card became corrupted, I want to reinstall, but the link on page 3 for the MinimServer:
wget http://minimserver.com/download3/MinimS ... mhf.tar.gz
tar xf MinimServer-0.8.3c-linux-armhf.tar.gz
no longer works. Can any one point me in the right direction?
Thanks,
Ian

Thanks Pete,
I,ve been there and although I can download the images to my laptop, what I don't yet understand is how to modify the old wget command line to download the files to the Pi B+. I've tried correcting the minimserver version to the current one ie MinimServer-0.8.3f-linux-armhf.tar.gz, but it just returns error 404 - not found.

try this
Code: Select all
wget http://jminim.com/abra/MinimServer-0.8.3f-linux-armhf.tar.gz

I used the instructions this morning and had to modify the wget statement to get the package.

I did exactly the same a couple of days ago. It works perfectly.
