Installing The Application
Copy the "radiow" directory to your SD under /apps
NOTE: DO NOT rename "radiow" directory.
Tested on PAL 3.2 - works fine.
Tested on NTSC 3.3v2, 4.0 - works great!
Copy the playlist file to "/apps/radiow/pls" on your SD card
Saving playlists from WiiRadio will create a *.pls file under "/apps/radiow/pls".
Pressing the "+" button will add the playing station to the Playlists.
Make sure you're getting a decent wireless connection on your Wii for better performance.
Free Space Requirements
WiiRadio requires free space on the SD card for caching. I'd recommend 10MB free.
A W.I.P. document for the skinning engine can be found at - http://wiibrew.org/wiki/WiiRadio/Skinning_Ref
I've also released a Windows version of WiiRaio to aid in skinning. you can find it here http://wiiradio.googlecode.com/files/windows_v4.something.zip. Please do not report bugs against this as it's just a tool.
