I note an alternative "way in" is to find and play the channel on shoutcast, pop-out the player, copy the "embed code" and extracting yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=35124 gets a pls full of 96k mp3 streams (of course you then discover few players deal with the above style of link and you have to wget it and rename it trance.pls or something).

Ah I assume this is with reference to the more recent (than the original question) DI.fm changes ie the links to pls files for mp3, aac streams etc have vanished from the site (although my Rokus are still picking up their presets fine) and been replaced with an embedded player. Thanks; useful information!

comment Fixing Outlook 2010's notorious 'Disabled Search Indexer' Add-in problem
I have the same problem (the add-in is showing disabled too). For me, the above fails at "Click the 'Indexing Options' button"... which does absolutely nothing (presumably a sign of deeper brokenness).
