In an S1 system I believe the only updates you'll receive now are security updates, which shouldn't be very often and are quite important so you'll need to check in from time to time.

Oh, that's a shame as my problem with Sonos updates will get me again.

Sorry to be thick, I'm really not understanding where/what you mean by
"from the '[n] playlists' index item that will appear in the MinimServer browse tree."

I have a folder called playlists on the NAS with playlists in it and that appears in minimserver like the classical folder and the Rock folder but I'm unaware of this tree?

[code]#EXTM3U
Thanks for that information - more knowledge is good but unfortunately I'm not a BBC fan - sorry. I would be interested in ClassicFM, Virgin Radio, talkRadio and others, are they available?

Not without someone telling me what to do. No chance what so ever of me understanding those instructions.

Go to the playlist tab, click on the three vertical dots at the top right of the screen and select 'How to add Internet Radio'.
I've looked everywhere I can think of for the playlist tab can't find it. What application is this in?

Thanks.
Bob.
