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.

My point: Fritz made it sound like the BM5/tv combi is something completely different from the BS5 (the BM5/BS5 combi). I disagree with that vision. Lots of the features were introduced much later when the BM5/BS5 sw had matured.

beolion:
Much easier to scan your music compared to TV
True: other interface, I did prefere the BS5 also.
beolion:
You can assign N.RADIO to RADIO and N.MUSIC to CD
Much later introduced
beolion:
You can assign BM5 as DNLA server
A main difference between the two
beolion:
Spotify integration (when it worked)
A feature introduced almost at BS5 EOL. With lots of hick-ups because of sw changes (at Spotify)
beolion:
You can use the USB input on BM5 with a.aux
Introduced much later
beolion:
You can have the BM5 “on” all the time for quick start up
To my knowledge this was the same for both
beolion:
Ability to attached a CD to play and/or rip CD
Introduced also much later. To me it didn't make sense....... You have a BS5 to listen to Music Files so why the feature to listen to CD's. Ripping and tagging to my preference has always been better with a pc.

SO at the start the BM5 was the successor of the BM1 and the BS5 a new/other interface to the BM5.  Later it was just the BS5 (the combi BM5/BS5) which evolved!

Correct..
Many of the highligts were due to suggestions/feedback from customers.

Reason for this was the decission to EOL the BS 4 and BC 2, meaning that B&O would not have a music system.
However this thread is about BM 5 N.Radio Station List Updates.

True.

So why should the Netradio part of the BM5 be different if connected to a BV from connected to a BS5?

That's the way B&O designed the system.
BM 5 standalone with BV connected "system one"
BM/BS5 with or without a BV connected "system two"

I disagree. Just because the difference in basic software starting after booting a BM5, does not mean Netradio will be different.

But it is, and dont ask me why :)
I agree it would have been smart if using same system.
When BS 5 was put on the marked as a "add on", the BM 5 software soon after was EOL,
and only the BS 5 part of the software was upgraded and updated. Dont ask me why :)
BM 5 was designed for Beo 4, BS 5 was designed Beo 5 and Beo 6

Beosound 5 and Beomaster 5 is not the same product.
Beosound 5 is an addon to Beomaster 5.
Beomaster 5 can Work as a standalone without Beosound 5.

Obviously. But they both use the exact same Beomaster 5. I could connect my Beomaster 5 to my tv if I wanted to instead of the Beosound 5. I see no reason that updates to the BM 5 would be affected by the control/display option selected. If you are correct, I could connect my BM5 to one of my Beovisions and suddenly it would update?

The issue is the N.Radio List.
The update list on BS 5 is not the same as on BM 5.
Described in ealier posts.
One need to know the software and hardware difference between BM 5 with or without BS5.
As written before, BM 5 is an updated version of BeoMedia 1.
The update list for BS 5 does not Work for BM 5.
And the N.Radio update list is only updated on request if the a detailed URL for each station is attached,
and will Work on the BM 5 platform.

B and O advised me today a Net Radio update for a Beomaster 5 is compatible with a Beosound 5.

The reason for my Beosound 5 still having the May list is due to rollouts of the updates occurring at different times for different regions.

Sorry to say, Its corrrect with regards to BS5, inkl regions.
BS5 uses another platform. Pls keep BM 5 and BS 5 completely separated.
It's two different products. Not all in the B&O support is aware of this.
Pls read this thread from begning to the end.
Espeacilly if you have a Beovision 9.

To clearify BM 5 as a standalone unit without BS 5 connected., uses N.Radio another station list. .
Try for yourself:

Pls remenber to make a clean reboot without any cables from BS5 connected to BM 5
And use a compatible Beovision to accesc the BM 5, according to the BM5 manual.
Pls revert with date of update  from BM5 as shown on the Beovision in N.Radio mode.
