According to this thread, Volumio can''t act as a UPnP server but can act as a UPnP client/renderer. The client/renderer part is what you need.

RE: BBC radio streams not working
I'm getting somewhere i think
I've updated the library
kazoo can put a stream in a Volumio play list and i can see information -- see attachment
I have re instated the *.wav instream.transcode
I still don't hear anything though :-(

This solution is now available in MinimStreamer 0.5.2. When you play an HLS stream via MinimStreamer, it is automatically converted to a "normal" AAC ADTS stream. The converted AAC stream can optionally be transcoded to other formats such as wav, wav24 or L16. It can also be recorded to an AAC ADTS file.

I have tested this with the BBC streams in the following .m3u playlist file:

Please update to MinimStreamer 0.5.2 and remove the *:wav transcoding setting. The stream should play on Volumio as a "normal" AAC stream.

Thanks for the quick response and apologies for the inconvenience.

Please delete the minimstreamer-0.5.2 package using the Packages tab of the Properties window, then reinstall it.

Restarted OK. Thanks very much for the quick fix.

Now, sorry for being slow as usual, but don't I still need a transcode, or am I misunderstanding something?

With MinimStreamer 0.5.2, you don't need a transcode setting. The HLS stream is automatically converted to AAC ADTS as described in the Release notes.
