How do you find the URL of the stream that a radio station on Sonos is using?

You'll need to peek in the diagnostics.

Get the IP address for the Player in question (e.g. from About My Sonos System in a controller) and point a browser to http://#.#.#.#:1400/status/perf where #.#.#.# is the IP.

Look down the AVT Play Log section and you'll see a 'track' entry which looks like a URL, but prefixed by a protocol/codec identifier instead of 'http'. The play log has the most recent entries at the top.

Immediately below (i.e. before) the 'track' entry you should find an 'avt' entry, which is the reference Sonos used to retrieve the stream URL. It could for example be a TuneIn reference or the URL of a playlist containing stream URLs.

For more info go to http://#.#.#.#:1400/status/radiolog. This has the URL for the stream playlist and all the stream URLs therein. Sonos would often have selected for play the first one it encountered in the list.
Thanks for that. I'm trying to work out what stream the TeamRock radio item links to. I believe there may be 2 streams available and one is better quality than the other.
I just updated everything to the latest version and both http://#.#.#.#:1400/status/perf and http://#.#.#.#:1400/status/radiolog give an blanc page.

Anyone similar experience?
It seems that due to security issues, many of the status functions are no longer available.
This is bad! I really need the stream address. How can I get it?
