Radio is like a random (but not perhaps as random as ideal) selection of your own library…good for discovery of your hidden gems, but can be improved re selection of duplicates and repeated items. Work is promised to improved it.
OK, I’ve woken up to linking the Internet radio to Roon [Yes, I’m a slow learner] and succeeded in establishing the first one BUT I’ve tried to link up with 6 others and am consistently told Roon cannot find them.
Suggestions as to what this old idiot is now doing wrong???
At this early stage of the evolution of the Internet Radio feature of Roon, in can be tricky to get the URL of the station exactly in the right format. Perhaps you can find the stations that you are looking for in this thread:
By Roon instruction set I think you may mean the Roon Knowledge Base. Bookmark it in your browser.
I agree that a link to the KB from this Forum would be really helpful. I’ve nagged the devs to put one at the top next to the “roon” logo, but Discourse (the Forum software) doesn’t handle this well. I think getting it to look right on phones was a problem. One day I hope to see it !
In the meantime we throw out links to the KB to all and sundry wherever we think they might help. Was there any particular sticky or thread where you though a further KB link might help ?
I’ll send you a PM later tonight with copy paste of my Internet Radio stations. I think you’ll like some (Audiophile Baroque, Audiophile Classical) and others maybe not so much !
If you find a station you like on TuneIn then pasting in the page URL for that station should also get you going.
Not sure, but likely the thread that @Geoff_Coupe recommended. From your non-working URL, I could see what you were shooting for and remembered I had a Linn classical station in my very small collection.
Personally the Roon radio addition is brilliant , sometimes when I get home just listen to Smooth Jazz radio out of Monterey US which not only sounds superb but secondly has some incredible music which I then add using Tidal and play on Roon.
Also just as important doesn’t have ads every 2 minutes like most radio stations and TV is becoming just as bad, should have an option to have ad free, I would be happy to pay extra if it was an option.
