Internet Radio Tuner


Recommended Posts

I know that I can do this with a HTPC, but we get our movies from Netflix, Redbox and on Demand so no need for streaming, and Pictures, well...our BluRay can view those through a DLNA server so that is all good. I know I can do a Boxee Box, Roku, or other unit which outputs to the TV for navigation, I don't want that.

I am curious to find out if anyone has had any experience with an internet radio tuner such as the Grace Internet Radio (or any hardware tuner like this):

Are they really worth the money and pretty much future proof (That is if a station's URL changes, you can edit them in the player, or add new stations)? I am thinking about picking one up in the next few months for our new place and want something that will be worthwhile. :)

      Surface Pro 8 and Laptop 4 images leak, expected to be launched in January 2021
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Surface Pro 7 Images of possible successors to the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 and Laptop 3 have been spotted passing through certification in Korea. The pictures, posted by Twitter user cozyplanes, suggest that the devices – likely to be called the Pro 8 and the Laptop 4 – will retain the design of its predecessors. The tweet also hints at the possible addition of an LTE version of the Pro 8.

      Windows Central’s Zac Bowden adds that according to his sources, the company plans to release these devices with minor specification changes, packing Intel’s 11th-gen Tiger Lake processors. The Surface Laptop 4 is expected to also offer AMD variants, just like its predecessor, but it is not clear what chips the Redmond firm will be using. Bowden also corroborates the information about an LTE version of the Pro 8 on offer, adding that the launch will be one without much fanfare, owing to how minor the updates are.

      In addition to launching the two models, Microsoft is also expected to launch the dual-screened Surface Duo in more markets. The company might also unveil a black colored variant of the Surface Go 2 tablet. There are reportedly no other major announcements expected to happen in early 2021.

      Today’s news might come as a disappointment to those that have been expecting a major design refresh to the Surface Pro line, which has not seen a meaningful design upgrade since the Pro 4 in 2015. The design on these devices now looks dated, especially with the Surface Pro X featuring thin bezels and a modern design. It will be interesting to see what the firm has in store for the Pro line.
