Hi,

I've noticed that I don't have any genres in N.RADIO that start with the letters A or B.  And there seem to be many fewer genres than I used to see when I was running BeoPlayer before I got the BS5, although I haven't counted them to find out.

The BS5 has been hooked up for 3 or 4 months.  I thought it might take it a day or two to update the genres, so I was patient, but at this point, I don't think waiting any longer is going to make a difference.

Any suggestions?

I got a further clarification from B&O that the subgenres are not searchable.  So if you want to find Soul music, you have to just poke around under the Urban genre.  That part is kind of lame IMHO.   But it is what it is.
