Radio Stations in Lumin via MinimStreamer
Thought I'd mention this for any MinimServer users who also use Lumin as a control point for the DS/M. It may work with Lumin kit too but as I don't have one I can't try it.

Using the new Routing Network Streams in MinimStreamer 0.8.1 you can get MinimStreamer to play radio station streams from entries in a playlist file. I have set up a playlist file with all the radio stations I usually listen to, note these do not have to be in your Tune-In favourites.
I then add this playlist to the queue using Kinsky, then go into Lumin and save the queue as a Lumin playlist. Then if I want to listen to the radio I can do this by recalling the Lumin radio playlist and selecting the radio station I want.
It takes some initial setup but means you don't have to leave Lumin control point to switch between music file a radio stations.

See this post in the MinimServer forum http://forum1613.minimserver.com/showthr...p?tid=1178 and of course the MinimStreamer user guide http://minimstreamer.com/userguide.html

(you can also transcode the streams to WAV24 etc if you wish)

For reference, here is a sample radio.m3u file. The urls/stream names for many radio stations can be found here http://www.listenlive.eu/index.html
