Internet radio on Yamaha MusicCast receivers

vTuner

 

Yamaha's Internet Radio

 

If you have a Yamaha MusicCast capable device, you may have noticed that the internet radio has stopped working. This is because Yamaha no longer uses vTuner to provide the internet radio service.

 

Yamaha and vTuner

Yamaha's Internet Radio feature set has traditionally been served by a service called vTuner. Unfortunately, earlier this year, the decision was made to move away from vTuner as a directory.In order to ensure access to internet radio stations, the internet radio service provider on particular network products is switching from vTuner to airable.radio via a firmware update, which is now available. Owners of the following products will be prompted to install this firmware update.

Impacts to Additional Yamaha Products
