Hello there!
Welcome back. Hope you are OK. Now all we want to hear is "I have no trouble with my Imp", for all to be well in the Wi-Fi radio world once again.

Welcome back Orkney. I hope you are still enjoying Country music.

btw Did you ever get your Robers sorted after installing Beta firmware. I decided against Beta after reading about your problem.

"I updated to 257 865 476 on the Roberts WM-201 and I wish that I had left it alone, plays for about 2 mins on "My Stations" or "My Streams" and then stops and goes back to "Internet Radio" and I have to try again."  3/5/10

In good health now and back at work after 9 months sick leave.  The Imp is working away just fine with a fantastic range since the Edimax dongle was fitted. I use an Edimax extender now as well so I can get it working 100mtrs from the house and even the Roberts can't quite manage that!
No problems with the Roberts for a long time and it's still the Rolls Royce of the three that I have. Still thinking about buying a Roberts Radio Stream 83i

Nice feature of the  Stream 83i is. you can set the sync for the clock also on RDS (FM) or on DAB, so without internet or wifi connection the clock/alarm function works correct.
When the DAB/FM signal is strong enough, the telescope antenna doesn't need to be extended.
Thanks,

FM is needed here for Live Radio Scotland local programmes and we don't have many DAB stations available. The local shops have never stocked internet radios and I'm sure if they did they would be on to a good earner. I'm always expecting to see at least one brand ppear in Tesco's.

But I guess that won't be a portable one, these are more in a higher price range, and service is good from Tesco ? Service in the "real" shops, here, in the Netherlands is quiet bad, generaly :(
