SRC - Menu

Written by Saii Hallard. Posted in SRC Receiver

This is an overview of all dialogs from your SRC-Receiver and their respective function.

A note about the EXIT and CANCEL button:
It is preferred to use Exit or Cancel to close the dialog, in stead of the ignore button, as that will close the handler (listener) for the menu.


Main Menu

The main menu is the first menu you get when you touch a receiver that is powered on.

Main Menu

  • Login as DJ - Login function for DJ's (You need to be listed with a @DJ card)

Radio Menu

The radio menu displays stations that are stored in the Radiolist notecard inside the Receiver.
The default list is only an example, read more in the: radiolist article how to modify this list for your own.

As a special note: The first radiostation in the list is used as backup when any stream currently on the receiver fails. This means that in the event a DJ forgets to switch back after a set, the receiver automatically loads the first radio station after a given time (around 3 minutes). Or in the event another radiostation is not broadcasting or the connection fails.
So make sure that the first radio station is one that can be trusted to be always working.

Radio Menu

  • - browse through the radiostations list
  • [Genre] - Filter the list by a specific music genre (you can list stations per genre, see the radiolist article how to achieve that)


Music Genre selection

 When you press [Genre] in the radiolist, a selection of music genres (or styles) will be shown that you have specified in the Radiolist notecard per station.
You can filter on each genre, just by clicking on a selection. Press [No Genre] to cancel the filtering and show all station.

Make sure to power the Receiver off and on again after making changes to the general config.
