Hi,

I'm able repro the issue and it suggests a bad character code in the metadata transmitted by the Radio Station broadcaster.

A quick test shows the umlaute in the Title tag is ok but not in the Name tag. I've seen other odd issues in the Name tag over the years.

Post a link to a nice high res station logo and I'll try to get this station added for the next update. Once its added into moOde radio station feature Hitradio Ö3 will appear as the station name :-)

Hello Tim,

thanks for the analysis. It would be great to have some german, swiss and austrian radio stations included right out of the box.

If you don't mind I could add them in the github repos and create a pull request.

What are the criteria for you to add a radio station ?
