That's a good price.

Seems like a nice product but MAINS only - cheapest £89 elsewhere!

Only question is - if you move it (take it away from the mains) will it remember the locations or do you have to retune every time - I think you do.

Rep added :-)

Thats an odd thing to think of. Question. Does your TV lose all its channels after a power cut? I would imagine this uses flash to store the stations.

Fantastic price! For those cold voters - if you got no idea on what this device is then do not vote. This is NOT a DAB radio!

The cheapest alternative (also reciva-based) is Logik IR100 at PCWorld for 69 quid. Many people reported issues with IR100, mains hum being the most annoying problem.

Good item and good price for it. The fact that it's wireless is a real bonus as well. Dunno how good the item is in practise, but at this price it's worth taking a punt. Not a bad deal for someone with only 6 posts under their belt - why the cold voting?

Here's a review of the item:

i know this may seem like a stupid question, :oops:
but can you add your own radio stations to the device.
i only ask as i seen another device (panasonic i think) that only had stations that it had pre set, and if you wanted to add one, you had to go to their website and put a request in.:x
#8
ignore, i have just read the review and it states that there is no way of adding your own stations.

i wont vote cold, but this is completely useless for me unless it picks up some certain stations i like by chance.

I agree - however I quite like the idea of having 512 UK presets - means I would listen to station I didn't listen to before.

The on demand appeals too.
#10
I think you can install UPnP AV server in your network (to play your MP3 collection for example) and you can add whatever station you want to the server.
This is my guess - I don't have the radio as I am using DLink DSM320 to play internet radio via TVersity server.
#11
does anyone know if the power supply is multi voltage. ie 110-240v 50/60htz??
it should say on the plug what voltage it is.
as i would like this to take with me to canada and use there.

cheers

If you click on the users tab at the top of the review and read the second user review the guy tells you how to add stations.

This is another useful read

sweet - thanks

There's one more part of this radio that really needs addressing. As I've mentioned, Reciva are responsible for the station list. They supply the list to pretty much all the available wi-fi radios currently on the market. If you go to the Reciva website you can register your set online which creates a "My Stuff" section which lets you add your own streams and station favourites. So, although there are ten presets built in for favourites, you can have more by going to the My Stuff menu option.

Adding streams is especially useful if you want to use a higher quality version of a stream than the one offered by default. Unfortunately, none of the three I've tried so far has worked. I listen to Paul Harris on KMOX a bit, and CBS has an annoying new system of making you register before you get a player launched. Discovering the exact stream took a bit of detective work. But although it works in Windows Media Player, the radio fails to play the stream.

What's really curious is that there is precisely no mention of Reciva or its website and the functionality it offers, anywhere in the Bush manual. You just have to "know" to get there.

Anyone having problems with the empirestores website. When I click on the "add to basket" it just gives me the same screen back and doesn't update my basket

Tried it with other products and it works properly - also tried it in IE7 & Firefox with the same results

Works fine for me just make sure you select 3 years cover plan or choose no cover plan then it will add to basket.

WOW what a stupid answer. I won't buy any radio unless it retains it's stations. Some lose all your presets the minute you take the batterys out some have a secondary battery to retain all your saved channels. Asking if it lost it's channels if you removed it from the mains was a very good question. As you say you 'Imagine' it uses flash, but you don't know.

Won't accept the code now and I won't be ordering at full price.

Before calling people stupid perhaps you should take the time to read some of the links on this tread.

I did read the thread & the answer to the original question remains STUPID. Whats the point of a radio with many channels on it if you can't retain it? & that is what the original question was about. As I said before I won't buy a radio with presets unless there is a way of retaining the stations when the power is off, or battery's have to be changed. I had short wave radio's with many channels on that lost all of the presets when the battery was changed & that was one hell of a job putting them back on, never since I want station back up of one sort or another.

Just got mine.

Up and running in 5 minutes

The good:
10 presets
578 radio stations
You can stream music from your PC!!
Very easy to set up

The bad:
The sound is average
Feels light
578 radio stations is a bit daunting

One of the best deals I have gotten off Hotdeals

Hi

I got mine yesterday and set it up last night, up and running in a couple of minutes.

Spent last night setting up an account at reciva and found this was very easy too.

The sound quality is not as good as my Pure DABs but have to say despite the fact that its masde by Bush, it works really well and its easy to use.

I'm going to hook it up to my hi-fi amp tonight via the headphone socket and see how that goes and also see if I can access my MP3s from my PC.

I agree, this is one of the best deals I've had in a while, well chuffed.:-D

Thanks to OP!!!!!

Can it recognize SMB partitions or do you need to install UPnP AV?

seems to support multiple shares in the manual however I'm not clear how you can 'bookmark' shares or add favourites...
#30
Are these shares must be on the same device or can it support different locations? For example, if you have 2 NASes and each one got music collection - will it support it?

Basically - the manual says

1. select media player
2. select Windows shares
3. scan for PC's
4. select share
5. scan for music
6. choose playback method

Is manual available online somewhere?

Internet radio may suffer in a few weeks when the new royalty fee payment scheme kicks in. A lot of stations cannot afford the new rates and will cease broadcasting.

Many have moved to Canada

My cifs sharing with this isn't going too well - finds the share Ok, starts scanning but get the hump after a while.

I suspect that 100Gb of music is too much for it.

Not a good news :-(
Can you split your collection and scan it separately?

I could I would rather not though as that would cause problems with mythtv and gnump3d

I'll keep tweaking.

I am loving the genre selector though - straight in there with electonica (197 stations) - then somaFm Beatblender was easy to find.
