LinuxMCE doesn’t support Internet Radio directly. You can use Sqeezebox or this tip to configure and listen it. The idea is to create a media scenario for desire radio station and assign it to specified entertainment area.

There is a few notes regarding to playback internet radio content. But they can be solved easily till developers fix them in the next version.

Hack #2: Add custom security scenario

leave a comment »

LinuxMCE allows to add various scenarios. Just go to Wizard –> Scenarios and choose appropriate category. However, using that way it’s impossible to add some security scenario except camera view only. But what if you want, for example, to see buttons for open/close garage door under Security section on the Orbiter? There is a way to do that. Go to Advanced –> Configuration –> Scenarios and press Security Scenarios on the left panel. You should see all security scenarios in your system. To new one just press the button ‘Add my scenario’ at the bottom.

The main trick is that you won’t see security scenarios added such manner on the Scenarios main page – Wizard –> Scenarios.
