Re: Radio -

Until the music service is fixed, one way to connect is to use this link and grab the file: http://87.117.201.167:8250/listen.pls
This file is for winamp so any music player that supports web streaming and the winamp format should connect you.

beware of the asus upgrade for the original transformer. Though it does upgrade you to Ice Cream (4) it also crashes your tablet daily.
