    Assign a BBC Sounds app radio station to a preset?

    I have the BBC Sounds app - every time I want to listen to a different station I have to twiddle through the navigation to do so. Is there a way of assigning a station to a preset?

    Make the radio station a favourite.

    Then on your radio, browse to the favourite and with the favourite highlighted press and hold a preset button until you see confirmation that it has been saved.

    All the above suggestions work, although you can simply hold down the preset button while the station is playing to assign it to that button.

    Just in case anybody decides to copy the URLs in screenshot - the "iplayer://" URL is for the BBCiPlayer plugin which is no longer supported. The "sounds://" URLs are for the BBC Sounds plugin.

    You don't need them. Just play the stream from the BBC Sounds app then press and hold the preset button.

    You don't need to know them if you go via the Favourites route.
    Anyway - one way to see them is to use the LMS web interface ("Default") and play one of the stations via BBC Sounds plugin (Stations & Schedules)/Station/Live)
    and then click on the "M" for More in the right hand pane and then it will show details in the lefthand pane included the URL that will look something like
