    I have a favorite new Internet Radio Station - U-Rock (80's & 90's)
    I listen to it on iTunes and also on irsde.net on my GoogleTV, but their website is down....

    I'm not at home to test this link on my GTV, can someone tells me if it plays?
    http://174.37.199.5:8020/listen.pls
    If so, curious what it opens in....

    Thanks!

    That link is for a download - not an online stream. When I clicked the link it tried to download on my Revue but was unsuccessful. I'm not sure if that's because I have my settings set to only accept apps from android market.

    Because of Catfish's response, I don't believe PlayListS (PLS) files are a registered extension on Google TV. While I do know that they're often used for Shoutcast internet radio streams, you'll need to have a developer incorporate them into an application to stream them on Google TV. If I may be so bold, may I suggest that you bring this up to mcd2000 to request that it be included for GTVBox Video Player.

    P.s., nice station btw.

    Thanks for your reply guys.
    Finally back in front of my GTV so I was able to try playing with this to get it working...
    The link was still down to the url I used to listen with (when I don't have access to iTunes)
    I 1st tried Plex and Channels. Didn't find any add on channels that would play it..
    It can browse my iTunes including playlist, but it won't play .pls (Plex mainly serves up the files to GTV to play)
    GTV couldn't open it.
    I finally found XiiaLive and side-load it from GTV dropbox account and got that installed.
    Its mainly a SHOUTcast player, which I was able to find this station on.
    Pretty cool Internet Radio Station app. Rocking to it now :D
    Check it out

    Glad u like it. It does Rock! :)
    Funny, I contacted the station owner and found that they are broadcasting about 10 miles away from me!
