Hey everybody,
I got a question about a certain radio station that I want to play through my Sonos system.
I really like the relaxed music of www.poolside.fm and as I said I would love to play this on my Sonos system. I added the music station via my Controller app on my Mac, but it says that 'the number/song is not coded correctly'. The radiostation Poolside FM is based on soundcloud, so I think that could be the problem. Is there anyway I can still get the radio on Sonos, or is it just impossible?

Thanks in advance!
John

johnnyvh,

The straight forward method would be to play the station on a computer, phone, or pad and route its audio output to a SONOS player's Line-In. Note that Line-In is not available on PLAY:1, PLAY:3, or PLAYBAR. If you dig around the forums you can find somewhat geeky methods, using software, to convert the station stream into a stream that appears as a station that SONOS can play.

Aah oke thx. Too bad I only have a playbar and play: 3.. and soon some play:1's. So the line-in won't work. I'm going to search for the more geeky solutions 😉. Thx

Already have that working, but that's only for single songs on soundcloud, so it does not work. Poolside fm is a radio station based on soundcloud, but not just a stream on soundcloud, if you know what I mean. Thanks anyway.

Resurrecting this thread to share some great news. Poolside.fm is now available through Sonos. It's up there as a stream through the TuneIn app.
