How to stream to old Sony via QNAP ? - Koriolan - 31-07-2020 20:38

Hello to everyone,
I found MinimServer and that forum while trying to force my old Sony CMT MX 700 NI to stream the one exact IR Station.

The Sony has built-in WiFi and was able to use Internet Radio until Sony cancelled the service.
But its able to stream files and playlist form my home NAS QNAP, so I try to surpass the limits of that device Smile
The only way to control it is IR Remote, it has no app avaliable.

My first question - it is possible to make it working in any way ?

I have just installed Minimserver on QNAP, my music collection as well as playlists are accesible. MP3 only, no .flac but...
I also installed app on PC and added MinimStreamer
I have read carefully the guide and as I created the mp3u file

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,[RMS] Radio Nowy Swiat
http://stream.rcs.revma.com/ypqt40u0x1zuv.pls
https://stream.rcs.revma.com/ypqt40u0x1zuv.m3u


BUT - second question is- WHERE TO SAVE IT ? Smile
in QNAP Multimedia cataloque ? somewhere else ?

Thats the problem to solve Smile

Cheers Smile

If you want two stream URLs, you should also have two EXTINF lines like this:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,[RMS1] Radio Nowy Swiat 1
http://stream.rcs.revma.com/ypqt40u0x1zuv.pls
#EXTINF:-1,[RMS2] Radio Nowy Swiat 2
https://stream.rcs.revma.com/ypqt40u0x1zuv.m3u

The first of these is working for me but the second is not working. I will investigate the reason for this.

The playlist file must have an extension .m3u (not .mp3u) and can be placed anywhere in your music library. On QNAP, the default location for this is the Multimedia shared folder.

Simon, thank You for prompt response.
mp3u is my typing mistake here, file name was correct.

Surprise- content of Multimedia shared folder was not refreshed by Sony , so changes I made, are not visible.

trying to solve Smile
however, seems to be correct but stil doesn't work
Live ..

You need to do a MinimServer rescan after changing .m3u files. Have you done this?


RE: How to stream to old Sony via QNAP ? - Koriolan - 02-08-2020 13:55

Yes. But I just realised that MinimStramer is not working, Although I activated trial licence


RE: How to stream to old Sony via QNAP ? - simoncn - 02-08-2020 15:18

How do you know that MinimStreamer is not working?


RE: How to stream to old Sony via QNAP ? - Koriolan - 04-08-2020 22:31

Sorry for the break, I tried to go through the User's Guide again carefully. I still receive "Data Error" answer on Sony's Display.


RE: How to stream to old Sony via QNAP ? - simoncn - 05-08-2020 08:46

Please try changing the .m3u file to the following:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,[RMS1;mp3] Radio Nowy Swiat 1
http://stream.rcs.revma.com/ypqt40u0x1zuv.pls

The difference is the addition of ;mp3 after RMS1. After making this change, you need to do a MinimServer rescan.

Thanks,
will check it at home.
I tried same idea, to transcode in properties ( aac:mp3)
but still without result.


RE: How to stream to old Sony via QNAP ? - simoncn - 05-08-2020 13:20

This stream is mp3, not aac. In any case, you cannot transcode streams to mp3.

Adding the suffix ;mp3 to the playlist gives the control point and renderer more information about the stream type. For some renderers, this can make a difference. It doesn't change the data that is streamed to the renderer.
