multiple radio entries off of shoutcast in radio view

Asked by awrb on 2006-12-19

When ever I click on a radio link on the website it loads multiple radio entries in rythmbox.
They are all the same radio station but just multiple entries.
How do I configure rythmbox to just list 1 entry?
Is this a issue?

Ubuntu 6.10, Edgy Eft

1) Open Rhythmbox 0.9.6

2) go to

3) find a radio station you like

4) click on the "tune in" button for that station

5) I get multiple stations of the same station appear in the radio view in Rhythmbox.

let me know if that works.

Hi awrb,

These additional entries are actually mirror sites of the main site. This is a good thing in that it gives you fallbacks in case the main site is too busy.

I seem to recall that Rhythmbox has plans to nest the mirror sites so you'll have just one entry. However, I can't easily find the bug that this work is attached to.
