Windows 7: Best Progressive Rock Radio Station in Britain.

I am not discounting that I am just a Noob, and can't figure out how to link to the stream, but it seems to me at this point that the A/V Receiver I am playing with is limited in stream formats it will do.

My PC has no problem connecting and playing all of the streams on broadcast radio stations including Live 105. The receiver, using the same url copied from the computer's browser window, ends in a "connection failure".

Looking at the list of internet radio station streams I do have working I notice that all the urls end in .pls , .m3u , .asx , or .php. It seems if the stream does not feed a playlist it won't work on the receiver.

Unless anyone here knows how to stream the playlists on these stations. I'm still workin' on it!

How do I make a desktop shortcut to a radio station?
Is it possible to make a WMC shortcut that will open a station on my radio tuner? As it is, I have to open WMC, then go to music, then click on the preset station from there. Having a shortcut that would lead directly to my radio station would be awesome. Thanks. :)
