Using LMS, is there a way to switch the music source at a particular time? Say that I want to listen to Pandora until 6PM, and then change to NPR Now on Sirius.

I haven't done this, but it seems like you should be able to set a Alarm on the desired player and specify for the alarm to play your NPR station when the alarm triggers.

Yes, you can set alarms that will change to a playlist or a favorite. I have several set to change at various times on different days. Just make sure you set the alarm timeout setting to zero if you want it to keep playing indefinitely. First, if it isn't already in Favorites, favorite your NPR channel so it will show up in the "alarm sounds" drop down. Go to your server settings, select your player, select alarm clocks. Pick your days, set the time and select your NPR channel in the favorites section of the alarm sounds drop down.

Before you close the window, make sure you remember to click the apply button, lower right.
