Thank you for this wonderful system. I have been using Volumio for the past few months and am absolutely loving it.
I was wanting to use my volumio device as a clock radio. Means, I want that the device should start playing a radio station (BBC World Service) at a set time.
I have been playing with MPC command line …trying to setup it up via cron -e command.
I am ABLE to make it work with the MP3 files which are copied to the local disk on the Pi.
Can some one please guide me HOW do I do the same thing with any radio stream?..
I tried copying the BBCWorldService.pls file to the playlists folder. But MPC did not show the playlist. I changed the extension to m3u. Then it started showing up but mpc is still not able to play the stream.
best wishes to everyone.
