Is there a way i can get the bbc radio streams in my myth setup? I tried myth vodka a while ago but never really got anywhere with it and it was more aimed at iplayer content than the live radio streams (like those used by squeezeboxes etc).

I have no idea if this will help or not but I wonder what web address you are using for the streams. The BBC website itself is now using a flash stream, but there are still realplayer streams available which may help you, and they can be streamed with mplayer or gnome-mplayer, vlc etc etc, though for myth, that may be of no use at all; I've never even looked at myth so have no idea about that.

Here are the BBC real streams; they stream as playlists so need -playlist to play in mplayer or --playlist in gnome-mplayer before the stream url:-

yes when you scan for channels you need to select Tv+Radio
