OK it looks like either the backend or a frontend was stopped or crashed 
while the DB was being updated which has left it in a limbo state.

If you are good with mysql you can check and reset the 
'MusicStreamListModified' setting in the settings table.

Check the value with :-
SELECT * FROM settings WHERE value = 'MusicStreamListModified';

And reset it with :-
UPDATE settings SET data='' WHERE value = 'MusicStreamListModified';

Then go back to the stream search screen and the new stream list will be 
downloaded and the DB will be updated. Be patient it can take a while to 
process the large XML file :) The frontend log will tell you what is 

To answer where the list is downloaded from it comes from :- 

which in turn redirects to the osuosl ftp servers at :-
