Adding Radio Stations to Discovery


This is to help you with setting up Radio stations on the Discovery Server. This is a "Beta" feature in Room Essentials at the moment, but it is easy to add stations yourself.

 

1. It is easier to do from a proper computer, but you can do it from a tablet too. If you haven't already done it, the Windows & Mac apps are available here:

Here is the Mac OS X build:
http://roon-updates-stable.s3.amazonaws.com/RoonEssentials.dmg

Windows 64 build:
http://roon-updates-stable.s3.amazonaws.com/RoonEssentialsInstaller64.exe

2. Go to the menu > Internet Radio and click the blue box top left [ + Add a Station ]

3. Copy the URL you need from below, or search for other stations on the Internet. Local BBC stations are available here. Then press "Add Station"
