Do you have a sound card active? If so, it is not active. The hw:1 would point to the sound card’s built-in hardware control.
The -C 5 tells the player to stop occupying the card if it’s inactive, allowing other players to access it.
If you do not have a sound card, the audiojack output itself might be reason for inadequacies in the playback. Although it should not stop, so please also paste the debug info from your Squeezebox Server.
@hilary: your outputs seem to indicate that the radio station’s url was not reachable. Please try a big mainstream station to make sure this issue is not universal.
