Not a dumb question, Chris, and I thank you for your help. I've been accessing Live365 at work for several years now and while we do have a firewall, I hadn't come across this problem with the playlist until the recent redesign of the media player window. As you may know, it's much bigger now and contains a large side bar for advertisements. Since that change, I've had problems viewing the playlist. I have double checked my Java settings and they are all active. (I know should really be asking Live365 about this issue but their customer sevice area is baffling)This is a dumb question, but are you trying to play the station at work or at home? Most work-based networks block the ports that will let Live365 send that kind of information.
Check your security settings, and make sure you have Java turned on (Java VM machine, or just go download Java itself).
Problem solved! I downloaded the Radio365 player and it works perfectly - shows me all the info about every track. Only trouble is the temporary nature of the trial version. I guess I'll just have to keep downloading the player!I know with the Radio365 player, it screen goes blank, and if you right click (pc) the screen area, I can "synchronize display" and it works!
