I currently have a BBC News stream set as a favourite, and this means that I can have BBC News as an option on my home screen, which is great.

But, I would like to have an alarm clock function, where I can make XBMC play the news stream at any given time, so ideally, at 8 o'clock in the morning, I'm woken up by the BBC News.

I leave XBMC on when I sleep, so it shouldn't have to wake up or anything.

Any ideas? It seems fairly simple, but I have no idea where to begin!

You could use the Scheduler addon to do this. http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=144378
