    I guess you mean the six presets? No, that's currently not possible.

    Oh ...

    Yes I meant the six presets.

    I hoped there is a possibility maybe by modifying some xml files to change behaviour of IR-Keys.

    If your Radio is connected to LMS, you can change/select presets using the presets editor plugin.

    Yes, but unfortunately there is no drop-down to select an IR-Action to call a preset.

    It's not clear to me what you're trying to achieve.

    I try to explain:

    The little IR-Remote does not have Number-Keys (0 to 9 are missing). So I do not have a possibility to use this IR-Remote to recall Presets/Favourites.

    One possibility now would be to change the funktion of one of the other (maybe arrow-) keys to recall a preset/favourite or move between them.

    On a Squeezebox Touch, you can assign the number buttons on the remote to play a preset.

    I don't think this is possible on a Radio, one reason being there are no number buttons on the remote.

    On your Radio, navigate to Settings > Advanced > Beta Features > Shortcuts, you may find something usable. You're on your own, can't help you there.

    I already did so, but that`s only possible if You have the Number-Keys at the remote.
    The little one does not have them, as I tried to explain You.

    I do have another remote with number keys but would like to use the little remotes, too.

    Why not just make the items that are assigned to your preset buttons favourites, then you can just browse to Favourites and select/play an item?

    However, I navigated to Settings > Advanced > Beta features > Shortcuts > IR Hold Sleep > Play preset 1.

    Now I can press and hold the sleep button on the SB Touch IR remote (I no longer have a small Radio/Boom remote) to start preset 1 playing.

    That's the sort of thing I meant you to try.
