My Philips worked with its equivalent of 'My Streams' and without ffmpeg, but my Recivas will not.  This is also what macplaxton is saying - you need ffmpeg (or equivalent such as avconv) for the pre-v265 Recivas.

Well, there are many ffmpegs out there !   If you have a non-geeky device running minim then there should be no need to go through the pain of compiling !  There should be a working ffmpeg binary available.

Is that for a synology nas ?  There's been a lot of posts about ffmpeg difficulties with some synology setups ...

Yes, wake up at the back!  :)

Hmmm - have you been following the issue with synology at slimdevices?  It's all beyond my tired brain ....

From my quick skim of the subject, that's fine if the radio can handle the aac+ or whatever it is codec. I think Minim in that case just removes the HLS container/wrapper or something. For sets that are bobbins, transcoding into something easier to digest is necessary.

Well, there are many ffmpegs out there !   If you have a non-geeky device running minim then there should be no need to go through the pain of compiling !  There should be a working ffmpeg binary available.

Yes, I agree life should be simple, but unfortunately "big corp" makes sure that it isn't.

If you look at what is actually enabled in a particular configuration of FFmpeg, you'll see things like "non-free" and "libfaac". Now from my memory pre-build binaries/packages cannot include libfaac for licensing reasons. You are however able to go off and recompile it yourself, but only for your own use. Passing it around thereafter is in breach of the licence. So none of the ready made FFmpeg stuff will necessarily do what you want it to.  If you want it to do what all sorts then regrettably you just have to get your hands dirty.

There should be no need for me to go through the pain of pretending I'm in the UK to get football commentaries on BBC R Scotland, but I accept that I'm a good-for-nothing-non-licence-fee-paying freeloader and just have to work my way around these things.

It's not that impossible to build FFmpeg from scratch. I might even have a go at cross-compiling it later if drgeoff doesn't have any joy. Then I might be able to write-up another guide. I might even format it for the wiki. But then again, I might not. The two and a three year-old sons won't be particularly impressed and I think work wants me to turn up every so often :)

The problem I think is that generally those that can do the compiling from scratch, are pretty rubbish explaining it in laymans terms.

I have tried both the UPnP method and the My Streams route to play the BBC's HLS streams. Both methods sometimes work, but it is very much hit and miss. Sometimes a stream plays straight away, but quite often it starts only after 4 or more attempts. Or after selecting another station and then going back to the first. No idea what the reason is and how to solve this.

I'm using the My Streams method and whilst I've only tested the 96k non-UK streams so far. Had no problem selecting/loading/playing all BBC National, WS and local stations. Checked all 59 links and only a couple of geo-block messages just now, on BBC London and 5 live.

Going back to see if I can get a proxy working to test all the 320k. When I've done that I'll give you a hand zeewier to check your settings.

I should have mentioned that I am in the UK and have tried only the high quality UK streams.
