Dear all,

before I'm going to buy a NP3700/12 I've some questions:


Is NP3700/12 able to receive the following Internet Radio Station: Di.FM Eurodance http://listen.di.fm/public3/classiceurodance.pls (maybe with another URL?)?
Is the above mentioned station available in NP3700/12 as a standard or is it possible to add the station manually?
When listening to the above mentioned internet radio station: Are artist(s) and song title(s) shown in the display while listening to this radio station?
Where do NP3700/12 gets the standard radio stations from? Is it vtuner, reciva or an other radio station list?
Is it possible to add/view/see podcasts?


Can anyone test / verify this with his NP3700/12?

Thanks in advance.

Hi!

1,2 - I don't know if this radiostation is predefined, but I succesfully added it manually with link you provided and it played with no problems
3 - unfortunatelly NO! this is one of main drawbacks of this device - it never displays author and name of the song from internet radio...
4 - from here http://tunein.com/
5 - I don't know

In addition:
- there's no way to control from PC/laptop (only with provided remote, or phone app)
- provided twonky media software is very unstable
- device needs frequent restarts - I think it is very buggy
- user manual is misleading - it claims that np3700 can act like upnp SERVER which is not true
- user base is very limited, and its hard to find other users of this product

Cheers!

Dear jurekcy,

thanks for your fast response. But as the NP3700/12 isn't able to display artists and titles on the display I won't buy the device.

I just bought a GRUNDIG Cosmopolit 3F+ Web IP (including DAB/DAB+ tuner).
