    Don't know if there's a cleaner method but right-click the Direct Link for the podcast & copy the location. Then open the SB web interface, go to Internet Radio > Tune in URL & paste the link into the box.

    Edit
    There is.
    If you go to the App Gallery there's a Podcast app. Install it.

    Then log onto MySB.com & the app will be listed under My Apps. Click on Podcasts & you can copy the RSS URLs of the podcasts you're interested in from the RHS of this page.

    Then back on the SB you will have Podcasts listed under My Apps & clicking through should give you a list of all available.

    Nice one Croc.

    This did the job perfectly.

    Can now listen to Phil, Steve and the gang in glorious stereo on my hi-fi system.

    Cheers

    Since AVForums have updated their servers, i can no longer stream the podcast on any of my squeezebox devices.

    When everything was working fine i used the following url address :-

    Podcasts | AVForums

    I tried changing the start of the above url from a http to https in mysqueezebox account, due to the AVF upgrade, but without any success.

    Can somebody provide me the latest url link, that will work for the squeeze boxes or let me know where i am going wrong.

    Any assistance would be extremely welcome.

    Latest URL appears to be (without the spaces):

    https://w w w .avpodcast.co.uk/cast/avforums_podcast.xml

    This isn't working for me. It displays a list of available podcasts but won't play them.
