I have an HomePod and I want to listen Radio in iTunes on morning. So far it's not possible to set an alarm using a playlist or a radio in the HomePod settings.
So I decided to use iTunes on my Mac applescript in calendar (to launch it every day).
I found a way to target the HomePod using this command in AppleScript :
tell Application "iTunes" set current Airplay devices to Airplay device "kitchen" End tell
My problem is the radio. There is a Radio section in iTunes where you can find Beats 1 but other radios selected by Apple. I want to play one of this radio.
I try many ways but couldn't find a nice way to do it...
I tried :
play track myRadio of playlist myRadio
or source myRadio" play myRadio
Nothing work.. I would like to know how to access the Radio section in iTunes. Which is a spacial kind of section.
I found away to do it but It's not reliable :
open url (and use the radio Url from iTunes)
Using the script I was able to get the object's information :
get name of current track --> "Name of currently payed track iTunes selected" get name of current playlist --> "Name of my radio station"
