I have the same firmware update. It looks to me as though this adds in various features that were previously available only on the Stream 105 model. You can find out about them in the User Manual for this model, here http://www.robertsradio.co.uk/assets/Us ... 105_UG.pdf
. For example the following now work for me:
- Remote control (over WiFi) from an iPhone/iPad Touch using the Roberts ConnectR app. A very nice interface for controlling the radio, if you own an iPhone. (This is what the NetRemote PIN is for.)
- Works as a Digital Media Renderer (DMR). This means that the radio accepts commands from a UPnP/DLNA control application. I've found it works well with Linn's Kinsky application.
- Internet radio channels such as 181.FM now display the current song artist and title (including on your iPhone if you use ConnectR so you can view this remotely).
- There's now a facility to keep the WiFi enabled when in standby. This is meant to go with the DMR and ConnectR facilities, but on mine it also stops the annoying power supply whine in standby (but presumably at the expense of using a little more power).
All in all a very nice update!
