This will be possible with UPnP/DLNA Command Set. However I don’t think it is possible with vTuner but should be achievable with TuneIn as long as the broadcaster has followed the instructions. Check out this Topic.
You will have to wait for Arylic to respond. Maybe they have commands that work, maybe they don’t
I did the TCP/IP documentation for passthrough to UART. Without checking my documentation I am pretty sure that it covered some of these things. It’s not published yet.
So help me understand, why only UART for you ? Are you meaning commands with a serial cable ?
Q. Streaming Quality - this is a tricky field. Broadcasters can cheat so they announce a High Resolution but the actual resolution is lower (or even more important the recording quality maybe less than the broadcasting quality) . My personal Opinion is this is a “can of worms” and the best measure is our ears
Also note that Arylic Hardware is based on Linkplay Platform https://www.linkplay.com/ so there will be limitations on what Arylic can do.
If you can post you’re Hardware, Software & Network Architecture along with a brief what you are trying to achieve I am sure I can advise what can be done now and what you will have to wait for Linkplay & Arylic to add.
I am not a huge fan of httpapi but TCP/IP Socket Communication works for me. Not just with Arylic Products but more or less every device in my homes. (not a fan of MQTT or RF433Mhz either but sometimes there is no alternative).
Yes some commands already exist on TCP/IP. Maybe they already exist with Uart but not yet in the documentations.
You have right but I don’t think that the “big” radio stations send wrong resolution.
On the Arylic is connected with:
Volume control knob.
HD on USB port (I would like to replace my iPod by this HD, but yet the max.120 files are the biggest limitation)
UART connected to my homemade home automation. It receive all IR/radio commands and translate it and send it on the serial line. (why am I using serial instead of Ethernet. it works always if you loose Ethernet). My HA display source and title (received by uart).
OK understand now. Nice that you have a homemade home automation system
I don’t listen to a lot of Internet Radio but I will have a look into it if you give me a couple of example stations.
My gut feeling is that the mechanism to get track data on Radio Stations is completely different to recover Track Information on a USB Disk or a Music Server (This will be in the Arylic case UPnP/DLNA (more than likely); where the standard is available.
Do you know if there is a common Broadcasting Standard for Track Metadata ?
