Hi, This never happened before the latest update on iTunes (since I bought my early 09 mini). Now after the latest update, when I open iTunes and try to listen to the radio music it starts streaming and playing, then instantly stops and goes "re-buffering stream..." for 10, 20 sec and resumes playing ... and stop again for "re-buffering stream..." on and on ... what's suddenly happening here? I checked my DSL internet connection. It seemed having no problem as I tried playing online video w/o interruption or needing re-buffering. Did anyone experience the same issue with iTunes? How to fix it? Thanks

Found the cause for what's happened: since latest update, some previous radio stations closed (unlisted). Unfortunately the one I used to listen was gone and so I picked a new one offering similar music. But its bit rate is only 64 kbps -- too low for smooth/continuous streaming to cause instant re-buffering. I picked another station with 96 kbps and it all good.
