This is now fixed. It will now stop on the first error.

For future reference you could have just gone to Music Settings->Player 
Settings and set Resume mode (Radio) to Off.

Strange there should be just over 34K rows in there?

There's only the upstream DB we are using at radiosure.com/stations/ 
(can't check right now seems off line) but I think our search screen is 
better since you can filter the list by broadcaster, genre, country, 
language etc as well as a partial search on the channel name. We also 
have broadcaster and some logs that they don't use at all.

Our raw XML file we generate also contains a status (working/not 
working) and last test date that the upstreams DB also does not have. We 
don't actually use that info in MythMusic and since the plugins are on 
death row and development has stopped on them I don't see that changing.
