Hi from Toronto, Canada
« on: 16:53:39 | 06 December, 2020 »
Hey, everyone.

Wow, it's not easy to join this elite group. :)  Took me about 1/2 hour to figure it out.

Anyhow, I found this place after hearing about reciva shutting down.  And I am still nursing my Sanyo R227.  It doesn't even boot up properly half the time.

Looking forward to learning about more models that are out there that may replace my very old Sanyo, after confirming the reciva situation.

Welcome to our little part of the internet world. You will surely not be the only one coming to this forum after their radios quit working next year.

Thx for joining...

If you see the number of spammers and trolls who queue up to join this small, but perfectly formed forum you'd wonder what everyone on the interweb's doing all day...

Everyone here contributes in so many ways... I assure you, it will be 30 minutes well spent.

Hi,

Your Sanyo R227 will get new lease on life and you will find the loss of Reciva less painful if you merely look at the Sharpfin material on this website.
Sharpfin allows you the ability to have 99 presets and add "hidden" features like MY HISTORY - so you can keep the last 50 stations at your fingertips.
I have Sharpfin'd my 2 Sanyo R227 radios and they are still very useful even though the Reciva station list is no longer being updated.
Have a look and if you do not have enough networking experience I can offer to Sharpfin your radio as I live in Toronto as well. Takes less than 10 minutes.

@agent86@jpaul ,

I'm Toronto as well : )) ..

With my C.Crane WiFi Reciva radio on the "to be bricked" list, I pulled the trigger & got an Ocean Digital WR336N Internet radio off Amazon for C$100 back in 2020Nov.  I'm well pleased with this Ocean Digital device.

p.s. Happily, I successfully re-purposed my C.Crane WiFi to my kitchen to act as a UPnP device to play music from my upstairs desktop .. and, as of today, the C.Crane unit is also still playing internet radio stations (both presets and random searches).

May my old Sanyo R227 RIP. Many solar revolutions ago it met its timely death. What a piece of shite! At least it died a legitimate death unlike my Encore that was beheaded by the Qualcomm terrorists.

Welcome, and regards. I very well may be up Toronto way in September. https://www.tiff.net/about-tiff-21

Re: Hi from Toronto, Canada - Sanyo R227

I have seen a number of posts mentioning the failure of the power supply in the Sanyo R227.  I experienced this myself with one of my R227 radios. All I had to do was locate a 12v and 5v power supply - I used one from an old external CD - connect the 5 and 12 v lines and in a few minutes the R227 was working once again. The power "brick" was too large to hide inside the radio so I merely taped it to the top of the radio case with some clear packing tape.  Works like a charm.  Other than being constructed with a less than reliable and robust power supply, the rest of the radio is well made and continues to provide yeoman service. Hope you haven't thrown it out, it can be reclaimed very easily. And, I should add, the Sanyo R227 is easily Sharpfin'd and this will allow this radio to still be relevant and useful even when Reciva finally disappears.
