> Many thanks to Bruce Toews, who administers the ACB Radio Treasure Trove for compiling this document. We hope all Second-Generation Victor Reader Stream users will find this information useful. Please do feel free to share this information on social media and with other lists and individuals who may benefit as well.
> With the February 4 release of the Victor Reader Stream firmware, the next-generation Stream has joined the ranks of portable book readers capable of streaming Internet radio. Yes, a Stream that streams. This means that, if you have a new Stream and you’re connected to wi-fi, you can listen to ACB Radio with it.
> The Stream comes preloaded with a wide variety of Internet radio stations. If you are set to English North America, all six ACB Radio streams are available to you using these presets.
> 1. Switch into online mode, using the online button located between the goto and bookmark keys.
> 2. Press 1 to go into the online bookshelf, and if necessary, use 4/6 to navigate to the Internet Radio bookshelf and confirm to select it.
> 3. By default, there are two books on this bookshelf: favorites and Humanware Suggested. Navigate to the latter and select it.
> 4. Again using 4/6, navigate through the list of stations found here. Among those will be ACB Radio Mainstream, Interactive, Café, World, Treasure Trove, News and Information and Live Events. Simply press play on the desired station to listen to it.
> You can even favorite your favorite ACB Radio streams, and here’s how:
> 1. From the Internet Radio bookshelf within the online bookshelf, choose “search on OOTunes”. OOTunes is a popular app for the iPhone and maintains a comprehensive up-to-date database of terrestrial and Internet radio stations. Your favorite station is most likely in it. The Stream allows you to search for stations using this database.
> 2. There are two options: browse by genre, and search by name. Use 8 to get to the search by name field, and press confirm to select.
> 3. Using the text entry capability of the keypad, enter ACB (press two once, wait, press two three times quickly, wait, and press two twice quickly), then press confirm. (if you remember the days of keying in alpha numerics, you will remember that the first press of the number 2 sends an a, 2 presses send a b, 3 a c, and 4 the number 2; the first press of the number 3 sends a d, 2 presses send an e, 3 an f and 4 the number 3, and so on through to number 9.)
> 4. If you key in ACB, the list with which you will be presented comprises all six ACB Radio streams. Choose Live Events, or any other station on this list, and press play.
> 5. You can now add this station to your favorites, if you wish, by pressing the bookmark key, and then confirm.
> Again, many thanks to Bruce, and of course to HumanWare for including all our streams in their North American playlist. It was a kick last night to wake up in the middle of the night and within seconds, be transported back to yesteryear via the magic carpet known as Treasure Trove. Bruce does a great job with this stream so if you haven’t, check it out on your Victor Reader Stream, your iDevice, computer or good old fashioned telephone!
