Radiomarantz alternative?

I have Marantz SR5007 and SR6010. Appears that Marantz has stopped supporting radiomarantz service including the search function for these models for internet radio and handed the service to Vtuner. I rarely use the search function and save any new station in my favorites. Vtuner wants $3/yr for their service. Is there a way to get around this?

Seriously, I have no life.
Never heard of Radiomarantz myself. You could always just add an external streaming device to the receivers.....cost about a year's worth perhaps for something like an Amazon Fire Stick....or just use your phone/tablet and cast thru airplay?

YCast is a free alternative. Two ways to use it 1) Create a portable linux distro like Ubuntu on a USB stick, install l YCast. Start Windows machine with the USB stick to start Ubuntu and YCast. 2) Raspberry pi with Raspian, if you have one. Instructions for both are on the internet. Works similar to vtuner. Once you have your stations in the Favorites in the Receiver. You can put away the USB stick or the pi away.

Fools and their money are easily separated.
