Hi all!

I'm trying to add the MSX Music player to the Net Radio player on my Yamaha RX-v475 receiver.
So far I can't get it to work.

It'll show up in the Yamaha AV Controller app on my (Android) phone, but it doesn't actually play anything.

Is it at all possible to listen to the MSX Music player as a web radio station?

Haven't looked at the page source code and know little about intelligent players which can play streams, but my guess is this: 1) the receiver can play (single) streams only (MP3, WMA, OGG and/or others). 2) The "MSX Music player" is not actually a streamer anywhere, but downloads songs on-demand to your browser and some java app (or something? HTML5?) then plays them. The receiver does not have a full-blown browser environment (and JAVA) to do that.

So you'd need something converting that player to an actual stream to use on that receiver (and point the receiver there)?

But again, just a guess.

I guess my best bet is to get a receiver that can connect to bluetooth devices. I could use the MSX Music Player on my phone and stream it to the receiver.
Stupid, stupid, stupid. I remember choosing between the model I have now and the same model with Bluetooth. I didn't have a smartphone at the time and I didn't think I'd ever have a use for one.

You can buy fairly affordable standalone bluetooth audio adapters, which you connect to an audio input of your receiver. I have one of those (one from Logitech), works very well, and much cheaper than getting a whole new receiver.
