I'm jut setting up alarms for the morning and would like to switch on at 8am to play BBC Radio 1. Is it possible to play radio or is it tunes on the PC only?

thanks

If you can successfully play BBC 1 on your squeezebox, you can play it for your alarm. Just save BBC 1 as a playlist, then select that playlist as the one to play for your alarm. Easy peasy.

We do this, but one morning the SB couldn't get to the Internet radio
station. So, no alarm. After that I added a track from our local
collection as a second item in this playlist -- now, when the SB can't
get to the Internet (or to that radio station), it plays the 2d song on
the playlist -- a good backup.
