Dear All

The BM 5 Netradio Station List seems to be EOL according to Beo Support UK.

Latest update are from 15-12-2019 / 10-01-2020. This seems to be the last and final.

Does that just mean that they will not maintain the list anymore ? My BS5 has a "Last N.RADIO Update" of 2020-06-19. And I could see in the logs that it downloaded 441 logos today.

That does not make sense? The Beosound 5 is connected to a Beomaster 5.

It make sense allright, BM 5 can work as a standalone without BS 5.
The BM 5 software is cheking when booting up, if BS 5 module is connected, and loading the BS 5 software version. If not connected, it's loading the BM 5 software.
Try for youself and see.
Pls remember that BM 5 was also sold as a standalone unit..

Please check the Register of the BM5/BS5 in both cases. Do you see other references to Netradio in both cases??

I am confused.

Are we talking about Beosound 5 Encore here ? The Beosound 5 in combination with Beomaster 5, is just display and controller ?

We are talking about Beomaster 5 with or without Beosund 5 connected.
With Beosund 5 connected N.Radio Station List updates are still comming.
Beosound 5 Encore is another product.

Ok, it just seems odd that the BM5 standalone does not get the update, I thought it was the same SW they where running ? I guess what they mean is if it is build into a BV9 or similar ?

Correct.

The BM 5 is actually an update of the BeoMedia 1.
The issue was that one needed a TV to prgramme the BM 5.
Then B&O came uo with the BS 5 solution, så it could work as a standalone without at TV.
As you have written before, the BS 5 is the replacement for the TV, but with a lot more features than the BM 5 itself.

I used to only have the BM5 connected to a tv but after a year I ended buying the BS5 as well. Additional features as I remember.

Much easier to scan your music compared to TV

You can assign N.RADIO to RADIO and N.MUSIC to CD

You can assign BM5 as DNLA server

Spotify integration (when it worked)

You can use the USB input on BM5 with a.aux

You can have the BM5 “on” all the time for quick start up

Ability to attached a CD to play and/or rip CD (I don’t have this though)

That is what came to my mind.
