Question about Internet Radio
Posted 18 September 2013 - 03:56 AM
Im wondering if anyone knows how I might be able to logon to the radio and give it a codec update?? (I dont have codecs for AAC+ v2 in it and I know a simple update WITH THAT CODEC would work)
Grace will not send me any updates,THEY WANT ME TO SPEND ALOT OF $$$$$$$ AND GET A NEWER/DUMBED DOWN RADIO that doesnt work as well and isnt as easy to use!!
ALL THATS NEEDED HERE IS A CODEC UPDATE..... Has anyone ever tried to logon to thier internet radios?? (I know it is assigned an IP when you turn it on cause I can goto the detail section and it shows its IP! (192.x.x.x) I wonder if i could try logging on to that IP??
I think its sick they try to force you to spend $$$$$ to get more........

Dude, HOW exactly are we supposed to know the EXACT model/make of the *whatever* you are talking about?
Just in case Standard Litany (NEEDED):
More generally you will need some kind of "hacked" firmware (that may or may not be available) and possibly get a JTAG access to the actual circuits.
Nothing I would recommend, if you are asking about it (CATCH 22 )

Its a Grace IR-1000 radio and in my opinion its BETTER than anything else I have seen! (Its a BASIC radio... Easy to add stations,search for them,etc)
I thought you could maybe logon AS THEY DO but if hacked firmware is needed,seems like it wouldnt be easy.....
I just think its sad though....... OLDER GOOD STUFF being ignored and newer stuff THAT ISNT AS GOOD getting the attention...
Thank you my friend

The good news are that most probably it is a re-branded Logik-100/hipshing IR608:
IF this is the case, this page may be of use:
The bad news are that latest firmware
is was seemingly available online from Reciva.com but needs/needed registering. .
The generic gpl page is out of reach until end of september (at least):
More generically, that thingy seems "Barracuda" based (whatever it means) which leads us right here:
As expected a JTAG access and some tinkering may be needed, but it seems like everything is well documented :thumbsup:
Particularly, getting a login in order to change firmware seems doable without particular hardware, only with the GREATEST care and attention.
Still, unless you have as a hobby this kind of mods, it is not something I would suggest, as there is a concrete risk of "bricking" the radio.

I signed up for a 30 day trial of XM radio and my radio wouldnt play the streams.. (Says 'UNABLE TO PLAY' when I try any of them) -- I went to UPDATE FIRMWARE and it said there was an update so i accepted it...... THE RADIO STILL DOESNT PLAY THE XM STREAMS!! (I think its looking for the original WMA streams they used to have)
I DO NOT LIKE WHAT THIS UPDATE DID TO MY RADIO... It adds a MY HISTORY tab and a few other things I dont care for.... I CANNOT GET THIS UPDATE OFF!! (I just took it thinking the radio would then play XM)
I tried doing a FACTORY RESET but it deosnt take the update off.... Isnt doing "Factory reset" like re-installing an OS??
I dunno......... If i can I wanna get rid of this update! (I liked it better the way it was before!!)
