    Hi folks,

    I am considering a VIP membership to Live 365. Does anyone know if that
    works with MCE (I use MCE 2004)?

    How would I enable the VIP login and password, and does that work with My
    Radio and with Online Spotlight? Will I see VIP-only stations in Online
    Spotlight?

    Also, can I create .mcl files by hand?

    Thanks!

    Hey Alpha - I have good news & not so good news if you have an extender.
    yes, Live 365 VIP works with MCE (they didnt even realize this) - I use it
    just fine & love being able to stream internet radio all over my house & back
    yard. You simply click login from the remote on the Live365 page & away you
    go. The only issue I have seen is that sometimes even though you click
    "remember me" it will lose your logon info later & you haev to logon again,
    probably to save connections to their site if you arent listening. Anyway,
    the other issue that ius a bummer is that if you have an extender you cannot
    have both the MCE PC & the extender logged in streaming music at the same
    time - they tell me this is a licensing issue & apparently they view the
    extender as another PC & 2nd connection - sux though esp if you entertain &
    would like the same music playing all over the house. Hope this helps.
