            I'm sorry i have to down vote this, it's a great idea, but this more often than not fails to parse correctly. And looks to be dead last release 2010, any alternatives?

            Streamtuner2 launch error
            I installed the first version when it came out. It launched, and loaded stations, and streamed radio. I shut down the application, and have not since been able to get it to launch. There is an immediate crash.

            I get this error message at the terminal:

            "Traceback (most recent call last):
