Using Local Lineups

Last updated on Dec 05, 2019

Play Mobile allows for playback from sources that are not organized through HMP. If you do not have an HMP or if you wish to use Play Mobile in standalone mode, you can manually add local lineups to Play. This section describes how to set a new local lineup.

Note

Certain actions, such as recording, searching, and authentication, are not available for local lineups and are HMP-only.

To configure a new local lineup:

  1. Tap + to add a new service.
  2. Tap Local Lineup.
  3. Enter a nickname and set a custom icon.
  4. Tap Save.
  5. You are redirected to the home screen where the new lineup is listed.
