    3rd-Party Devices can handle local music, but is there a way to use internet-radio?

    Hello Folks,

    I'm new to the forum, so thanks for the warm welcome

    I own my two squeezeboxes (Radio in the bedroom and Duet in the living room) beside two 3rd-party devices (Hama ir50, based on the frontier-silicon platform).

    My LMS-Server is 8.1.1 is running on a raspberry pi 4b, because my synology ds218j seems to be a no future-platform and i want to use the community-firmware on my devices.

    So here's my question, or problem:

    The 3rd-Party Radios can use the LMS for playing the music on my synology... The LMS appears as "Mediaserver" on the devices and provides "Music", "Video" and "Photos".

    As far as i hate clould-bound devices, and the frontier-silicon-server had problems several times....:

    Is there a way to forward the Internet-Radio-Stations stored as "favourites" to that radios, so they can be selected on the devices themselves? (as 4th categorie, beside "music, videos, photos?).

    Perhaps as playlistfiles or similar?.... The UPNP/DLNA-Bridge is no option for me, because to control the devices, i need my smartphone... Selection on the device itself is not possible :-(


    The only solution which provides this so far (as i know) is a fritzbox (and it's built in mediaserver)...

    Thanks for your help and keep the good community running.

    That sounds like a reasonable request - and I can imagine that users of Reciva-based IR radios would be grateful because the Reciva portal is being switched off.

    I think, this would make a lot of cloud-based devices independent from their often unreliable cloud-platforms...

    I love the LMS, and use it heavy on that hama-radios for playing my local stuff.... But the last missing feature is, that i can use the favourite-radio-stations in LMS with the "media-server"-feature on that devices, too...


    The Fritzboxes provide the stored internet-stations as "internet-radio"-entry besides "music, photos, videos" in the menu...

    I think, technically, it uses playlists with the stored urls... I don't know :-(

    But if there is a interest in that function by more members than me .... perhaps it would be a feature in future releases?!

    Stay healthy!

    Cheers, Tob!

    The code to start looking in is the plugin "UPnP/DLNA Media Interface"
    However, this is a plugin that has not been changed for a long time and the original author is long gone.

    Might work if you set up a Playlist - and put your favourites in there - or multiple playlists.
