Tuner is splendid software that lets you listen to internet radio stations. While the program is designed for elementary OS, we had no issues running it on other Linux distros including Ubuntu and Manjaro.
Even though the software is in an early stage of development, it’s stable in use. And most of the essential features are already present.
Tuner is probably going to replace Shortwave as our favourite internet radio streamer particularly when the developer has added more filtering options and the ability to show the stream bitrate. The latter would be useful as there are duplicates of stations in the community database with some having a higher bitrate.

Are any TV stations included or do you have to add IPTV m3u list .. love the blog on the G2 by the way ,bought one myself ( i5-6500T) and very pleased with its performance running Linux mint ?
Tuner taps into the wonderful radio-browser.info catalog. This catalog includes some TV streams, so I didn’t need to add the channels manually.
I’m enjoying writing the blog on the HP EliteDesk 800 G2. What are you using it for?
Tuner doesn’t show up in my Ubuntu Budgie launcher! (*SIGH!*)
You can change the station order and edit the favorites list by editing a json file. If you installed Tuner via Flatpak, it’s at ~/.var/app/com.github.louis77.tuner/data/com.github.louis77.tuner
Pretty lame you have to edit a json file to do something so obvious.
I never knew about Tuner. Thanks so much!
Tuner is actually very good. An undiscovered gem!
Tuner now shows codec and bitrate for each station.
I am glad I searched and discovered Tuner nice nice I prefer it over shortwave!
On Ubuntu 22.10, I had to install geocode-glib.git and do ‘sudo apt install gtk-doc-tools’ for that.
