I've just done a long over due update of the *radio* *stream* database 
used by MythMusic.

The database update has been semi-automated so will be updated more 
frequently from now on (at least 2 or 3 times a week).

Vital statistics :-

Total Number of Streams: 30419

Number of Broadcaster: 706

Number of streams with logo: 11132

Number of streams without logo: 19287

Number of streams confirmed working (in the UK): 25715

Number of streams confirmed not working (in the UK): 4704

Number of Genres: 117

Number of Countries: 178

Number of Languages: 73


* Some streams are geo blocked so only work in specific countries or 
play a warning audio track saying the stream isn't available in your 

* The raw data comes from http://www.radiosure.com/stations/ so if you 
spot any errors please help everyone by updating the upstream data at 
Radio? Sure!

* The broadcaster and logo data is specific to the MythTV stream 
database. If you see any errors or have and updates to either the 
broadcaster or logo data then please email me and I will make sure it 
gets updated.

* Your local copy of the stream database should update automatically 
when the housekeeping task runs every 24 hours but you can force an 
update by running 'mythutil --updateradiostreams'

* I'm slowly adding logos for streams when time allows but it's a time 
consuming task so any help finding suitable logos would be appreciated.

* Currently MythMusic only tries the first playback URL for each stream 
even though each stream may have up to 5 backup URL's it could try (my 
test app tries all URLs to determine if a stream is working or not) .
