Having brought a nice new shiney HP desktop (HP Pavilion p6-2435ea), I decided to listen to the radio while working on it. Clicked on IE and navigated to the online station. Started to listen to the radio but then about 30 seconds in the radio stopped. So thought I'll try another station....one by one the same problem. I then proceeded to download several apps to play radio but all had the same problem. Thinking it was my connection I used my Windows 7 laptop and no problems - all worked fine. So what is Windows 8 doing that stops both radio apps and direct play via IE and Chrome after about 30-60 seconds? Any suggestions or solutions?
