Song information on soundbridge

Thu Jun 12, 2008 12:48 pm


With some radio stations, such a the marvellous Paradise, the name of the song currently being played is displayed on the soundbridge.

I've recently got into the absoutely fantastic Boomer Radio Acoustic Lounge. It's even better (IMHO) than Paradise. Only downer is that it doesn't display the name of the song being played.

Is there anything that Radio Roku can do to pull this info from Boomer? If not, what's different about the way that Paradise transmits?

Hi Kilburn Towers,

Radio Paradise transmits so-called "metadata"within the streams, Boomer Radio doesn't. There is nothing that the SoundBridges or Radio Roku could do to get artist and/or title infomations for the Boomer Radio streams.
