Thanks BPA. I spent a happy few hours playing around with AlienBBC and eventually found the plugin file containing the code that tests for the presence of a compatible sound player. Having edited it out, I can actually hear the mp3 stream on the M400
Happy to provide details privately if you don't already have the info
Not that I am interested in using this for the M400 as it's obviously necessary to "control" the stream from slimserver
I just wanted to convince myself that the Pinnacle version of Roku Soundbridge Radio would be usable with AlienBBC. From your other posts, it looks like the SB Radio does look like a pukka (enough) player to control Slimserver from it's controls / remote
So on that basis I will part with the Ã‚Â£140 or so for an SB Radio - just didn't want to spend that amount without ability to handle Listen again
I did play with a Revo Pico recently, and though it's a neat box (and portable), I was very underwhelmed with its user-friendliness compared to the Roku products. The Roku is miles ahead. Not sure if this would be a problem with all Reciva chip based systems i.e. the majority but probably is.
So my money's going to Roku (again)
Thanks for your help.
