      Any experience with B&O Radio and how it compares with TuneIn?

      Initial announcement mentioned that all NL speakers will be upgraded to B&O Radio by Q4/2022. Has this happened?

          It’s not great. Tunein has way more options.

            Could you please describe the differences.

              Tunein had some internet radio stations that I listen to that B&O Radio didn’t initially have.  I made a request to B&O to see if they could add them and they did shortly after.

                B&O originally promised B&O Radio on the old devices (BS Essence, BS Core, etc.) in 2Q2022, then pushed it out to 4Q2022.  I can’t wait for it to happen – TuneIn doesn’t have NRK Jazz here in the UK.  I just want to have the same favourites on all my devices – makes it easier to remember what’s what.

                In the meantime I turn on my BS Level then Join on one of my Beolink devices.

                  There may be some geography-based licensing restriction that preclude Radio in your area.  Dunno.

                    Do you know what setting that is?  When I use the app to control my Beosound 2, go to Radio and select the B&O Radio tab, and then a B&O Radio station I get:

                    Action not supported by the selected product.

                      Sorry, Mark.  I mis-remembered.

                        This morning there was a beta app update….which I did install.

                        It showed me the introduction to the ‘new ui’ and also offered the option of converting from TuneIn to B&O Radio….which then would give you the stations as you are used to – see picture. Meaning an update for all capable devices.
                        Obviously it was/is a general conversion for all devices – not per device.

                        F257DBD9-B5FB-4282-8A5F-AEC04EDE8818

                        I did as described – which was rather easy.

                        Unfortunately this conversion was not complete, only some of my previous TuneIn stations were available in the new B&O Radio part – and also pretty randomized.
                        As you can see in this picture

                        3740A659-1378-4AD8-85BF-425701A98C8E

                        Of course I have immidiately made a feedback via the app and am now waiting for answers.

                        I post this, if someone else (also beta testing) should want to try this out.
                        !!!Maybe you should wait a sec!!!

                        The TuneIn station list is still visible in the app. However, the stations are not accesable, since all has defaulted to B&O Radio.

                        Of course I will post as soon as I hear from the app team.

                        I guess a workaround would be to add the missing stations….but that can not be a solution for everyone.

                          With the latest B&O app, feeding B&O favorite radio stations with TuneIn favorites was somehow ok, even if I had to match some manually, BUT, the sort order is reversed in B&O radios following this process, which impacts the way I navigate into the radio list from my Essence Remote. I’ll have to build the B&O list manually to match the TuneIn sort order.

                            They really need to improve the radio search and give the opportunity to reorder the list.

                              The “search radio” dialog box has been added (back?) in today’s beta.

                              I’m very looking forward to get radios reordering capability within B&O app, this is a regression coming from TuneIn where radios could be reordered from the TuneIn UI.

                                Can custom URLs be entered in B&O Radio?

                                I have a few stations that I can’t listen to directly from TuneIn or B&O Radio.  For example, KNKX 88.5FM Seattle-Tacoma does not play correctly on any of my devices – something about their encoding upsets the equipment.  I set up a  Raspberry Pi to receive the official stream and re-stream it in a format that the B&O equipment can play. In TuneIn I was able to set a custom URL to the Raspberry Pi stream so I can listen to my favorite station.  But this requires the ability to set a custom URL, which wasn’t in the B&O Radio last time I looked.  Has this been fixed yet?.

                                  Maybe they can add your missing station as well………worth a try, I guess.

                                    When I made the request to B&O I included the URL’s to the stations and other information I could get about location and web site information.  I assume that B&O will have to contact them to find out if it is ok for them to include their channel in B&O radio.

                                      Before my channels were on B&O Radio, I listened to them on TuneIn which was fine because all of my B&O at the time had TuneIn.  There were a times when I would turn on the station and here a message that the radio station couldn’t be streamed to my area.  It turns out there was a dispute between record labels and the station that had to be sorted out, which somehow included my country.  Things were worked out and everything has been fine for a long time, but be mindful that B&O will have to consider rights issues that affect countries differently.

                                        I completed this migration process yesterday but I’m unable to play any of the stations on my Core (newest firmware), I get a message saying ‘action not supported on device’ or similar. Is the new beo radio working for others?

                                          How exactly does one go about submitting missing radio stations that are in TuneIn but not in B&O Radio please?

                                            What I did was I visited the web site of the internet radio stations that were not on B&O Radio, in my case j-popprojectradio.com.  They had a tab “Listen” which had all the ways you could listen to their stations including streaming URLs.  On the B&O website I used their Contact Us option in Support and told them my request to see if they could add a couple of stations.  I provided the name of the stations, J-PopProjectRadio and J-IdolsProjectRadio, the streaming URLs from the website, the website URL, and location information where the channels originated them.  I tried to provide as much information to B&O as I could that was available, so they could do whatever rights research they needed to do.  I can’t say how long it took to have them added to B&O Radio because I didn’t have a system on the Mozart platform at the time, but I don’t think it took too long. I believe they also added a similar station for me as a bonus, Kawaii Music – laut.fm, as I don’t remember it being there before.

                                            I hope this helps and good luck!
