Thanks for the link.

I haven't done exhaustive testing but that worked fairly easily.  Running it on the same machine as the LMS.  Xpenology (Synology 5.2) running on a Virtual Machine, VMWare ESXi5.5 on a HP Proliant 54L.

Latest updates to the LMS iPlayer Dash plugin add 'Go back xx minutes' for live streams - plus feature to select alternative menu displays.   Gets better and better.
I've been trying without success to find the "LMS iPlayer DASH plugin".  Can you oblige?

I've just installed and tested the Chromecast plugin for LMS - pretty impressive,   Full BBC iPlayer access, and all the other goodies.  Easy installation and minimal configuration.

But presumedly not to be implemented/implementable on existing radios?

Well, it is presumably only implementable on radios based on the Venice 6.5 module, which, judging by the version numbers I have collected from various radios (in the FS thread), is most of the radios currently on the market. However, we do not know the arrangements for an update: would FS automatically push updates to all compatible radios (or enable it for user-actioned update), or are the brands required to 'request' an update?

But as the Venice 6.5 module was first launched in 2012, it's safe to say that my Roberts 202-WM has an older one - too bad for me...

Easy ....

1. Remove the existing ...

You're a star!  :)
This 'upgrade' took me all of about 5 minutes and worked first time - on both my internet radios connected.

My last venture into the dark arts of Squeezebox/LMS for the unitiated took me a couple of days to sort out.

You really have been so helpful to us thickos. Thanks so much.

According to a reply to a query on their Facebook page, Roberts have confirmed that their new "R-Line" internet radio products* (http://www.robertsradio.co.uk/rline/index.htm) support BBC's MPEG-DASH streams, on-demand and podcast.

Hopefully this means that the Frontier Silicon v2.10 firmware can soon be rolled out to existing compatible radios (with the Venice 6.5 module) whose brands request (and pay for) it.


* Some of which bear more than a passing resemblance to some of Sangean's new "Smartlink" range (catalogue download link: http://www.sangean.eu/support/download/2016-sangean-smartlink-wireless-multi-room-system.html).

Nice ... but the Reset button on the S1 is badly located next to the volume controls!

Any notion on pricing?
