      Re: Streaming music

      Nothing yet, I think it estimated Monday. Gonna have to find another EoP plug or buy another as I’m going to struggle to get Ethernet to the location. It’s wireless so may just end up using that. It is wireless isn’t it?

        The problem might occur when she decides to sell it and bases the price on what you said it cost....

          Yes Tim it is wireless, bluetooth and also Ethernet connection. My router is in another room and the Roberts connects perfectly.

          Estimated Monday ? I didn't realise it was purchased from Asia

            I have a houseful of quality "Boys Toys" and that thought truly haunts me

            Best thing would be to have an Ebay Fest before I pop my clogs.

                Update: wife accepted a box from courier (first part of plan gone wrong at first hurdle!) so I’ll take a shufty when she pops out later....

                  I suggest that you carefully open the box and remove its expensive contents, then replace them with something cheap and innocuous, followed by carefully resealing the box.

                  When your wife gets home make a show of opening the box and displaying the contents.

                  Just make sure that the replacement object is one that she would recognise as being cheap.

                  Your secret is still safe with us, but just remember that you owe us Big Time!

                    I can offer some vacuum cleaner or washing machine parts if that helps.

                      I think the problem might occur when SWMBO realises just how many cameras I have. In my defence I could point towards the wardrobe and her shoe shelf.

                        The camera thing is easy, I just buy black ones and they all look the same.

                        Now, first thoughts, having got it all up and running, CD (how quaint, rotating media!) plays fine it just doesn’t know what it’s playing. Is that right? I was expecting it to pop off to Gracenote and identify the album?

                          A bight red dot on the front is a bit of a giveaway though.

                              Sorry Tim, I forgot to mention about the CD titles, it just shows track numbers. It doesn't show the titles of the 78rpm records on my turntable either

                              Doesn't really bother me as mine in fitted into an entertainment unit and about 12 inches off the floor, so unless I lie flat on the floor I can't read the display anyway. I simply rely on the phone app. or remote control. Actually, If I was to lay flat on the floor, I would need a block & tackle to get me up again.

                                It’s not only CD titles but also MP3s on an SD card too....hmmmmm....this might be going back.....
                                I’m guessing it will be exactly the same with USB so how about streamed tracks, does it show artist and track names then?
