SongBook includes support for playing internet radio stations. SongBook goes beyond other control points though and also includes support for managing presets, which are a list of your favourite radio stations.
You can use SongBook to listen to internet radio stations with no setup required, but if you do spend a small amount of time you can make internet radio listening even easier.
SongBook uses the RadioTime directory to provide a worldwide listing of internet radio stations. If you register at RadioTime.com you can save your favourite preset stations on RadioTime's servers so that you can access them from anywhere.
RadioTime.com also allows you to manage your presets and browse for stations on the web, but you can do all this from within SongBook too.
The first step is to register an account at RadioTime.com. Once you have an account open Settings.app on your iPhone or iPod touch, and find the SongBook section, or press the 'Login' button on the iPad Radio Source and enter the account details.
If you have a Linn DS you can also register your RadioTime account on the DS. You'll need to use Linn's Konfig application to do this, or ask your dealer for assistance. This will let the DS load your presets directly from RadioTime.
Using Internet Radio
Internet radio is as easy as playing music. Just select the radio source in SongBook and either tap on a Favorite station or browse the radio directory until you find a station you want to listen to.
You can save favorites directly within SongBook so they are easy to find later.
Not all devices can play all radio formats, so if your radio does not play after a few seconds this may be the problem.
Also, sometimes stations are not available, so it may be a good idea to try again later.
If you are having trouble with a station you can send us a support email. Be sure to let us know the name of the station, and also the device that you are trying to play it on. We'll test it out and see if we can find the problem.
