Perhaps the following web page may be of help.

how-to-make-an-m3u-file-on-a-mac

Once the file is completed and saved follow the instructions on the following web page

FileStation - Upload Local Files and Folders

Good luck.

RE: HLS stream to radio.
I see you have a Radio.m3u file in this folder. Is this a plain text file with the correct contents? If so, you should see "1 playlist" as a menu selection after doing a MinimServer rescan. If it is not in the correct format, you should see some error messages in the MinimServer log.

The TEXTCLIPPING file will be ignored by MinimServer.

This web page describes how a textClipping file is created.

TEXTCLIPPING

As a simple test, and to make some progress, perhaps you could create a plain text document and type in a single radio station entry. I know, typing and not copy/paste or dragging, painful ? but if you can establish that this file can be handled by Minimserver, you are on the right path.

RE: HLS stream to radio.
The file contents that you posted are corrupt at the start and end of the file.

The first line of the file must be #EXTM3U on a line all by itself.

The remaining lines come in pairs. The first line of the pair is something like this:

#EXTINF:-1,[R3;aac] BBC Radio 3

The second line of the pair is something like this:

http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/hls/uk/sbr_high/ak/bbc_radio_three.m3u8

As a start, try creating a file containing just the above three lines.

RE: HLS stream to radio.
How did you create the file? How did you copy the file to the NAS? How are you opening the file and seeing that it is empty? Without more details of what you are doing, it is very hard to provide advice on how to fix the problem.

Reading the thread again I note that your

... main system is running Minimserver from my Synology NAS with music and BBC HLS streams using Linn Kazoo.I can also access my music on my home radios but cannot access BBC streams.

Just to clarify, you are using Kazoo with Minimserver selected as the media server from which you select the Playlists index entry. From there you select a .m3u radio entry which displays a list of BBC HLS streams which play successfully to your main system?

If so, that clearly shows the .m3u file is correct and suitable for use on the Roberts 93i radio, notwithstanding the need, perhaps, to transcode the stream into an appropriate format for the radio, eg. *:L16.

Apologies for being pedantic but when using the Roberts 93i radio, you are entering the Music Player mode, which displays the Minimserver Index list including the Playlists entry. Selecting this displays the .m3u radio entry but when selecting it no list of radio streams is presented, just an empty page?
