I don't know if this already exists somewhere. I can't find anything similar.

Most Reciva radios have a Last Listened or History menu item. This saves the last 10 stations listened to.

Something similar would be useful on SB units.

Does it exist?

I think peterw's PlayLog plugin will do what you're looking for. By default it logs every track played, and I am pretty sure it also logs the source (eg, which radio station). I don't know if it can be configured to show only the stations played, although even if it can't I'm sure you could extract that with some post-processing of the log file.

Besides peterw's excellent PlayLog plugin there is also TrackStat plugin, but TrackStat currently only logs locally stored tracks, not streaming services and not Internet radio stations. PlayLog logs both local tracks, streaming services and internet radio stations.

But trackstat costs money so not an option anymore for some of us. Sorry Erland, i explained my position that such basic features as rating, history, stats should be included the core product. Why can't logitech compensate you and take over trackstat in order to integrate it ?

No problem, I agree with you 100%.
peterw's Play Log plugin is still available for free, but I'm not sure if he is actively maintaining it anymore, he has been a bit less active in the community during the last year or so.

I assume you or anyone else that wants statistics support have voted on the rating enhancement request ?

It's nowhere near the complete thing but it's at least the basic functionality for rating.

If Logitech or anyone else wants to take over TrackStat, I want to be very clear that they won't get any objections from me, I would even help them to do so, very likely for free as I agree that statistics, ratings and smart playlists should be part of the core product.

Play Log - sort of works .... but only if I set it to log everything. Internet Radio only option doesn't seem to work. Can''t see any results on the Touch screen.

Not quite as useful as a simple menu lookup. Not often that the Recivas have a better feature than the SBs!!
