I love that I can add Radio Paradise as a "Music Source" on Sonos now. I can now skip the (very few) songs when I want to. Nice work! I increased my monthly contribution. Thank you. {#Good-vibes}

I would like to add a comment about something I miss now — I feel disconnected from the live stream. I visit the RP website frequently (multiple times a day) based on what I'm hearing in the moment. But because I pause overnight, now my playlist falls behind the live list by several hours, then more hours behind after more pauses, etc. It is harder for me to connect with the information and comments on the song I'm hearing.

When I resume play in the morning, I would not mind if the next song (or within the next few songs, or next hour) if my playlist picked up where the current "live" playlist currently is. Then I would stay better connected with the RP info/community, plus I'd have a skip feature. I don't think a casual listener would notice that the playlist "jumped" ahead to the front of the queue.

I took a quick look at the Sonos API (I'm a software guy) — it seems this could be possible by receiving a new 'catalog' value when a user's data gets refreshed. I could be wrong — I didn't dig very deep, but I'm sure your software folk would know: https://developer.sonos.com/build/content-service-get-started/synchronize-your-service/

Hi Bill,

We’ve been listening to RP on Sonos through Tunein for a while now, including the various streams options.  I thought I heard you mention today that the â€œskip forward” option will be available, but I don’t see that the button has been activated in my controller.  is there a trick to getting it activated?

Thanks so much for everything!

Jon 

 

Settings -> Services -> Add a Service  

Then find us on the list.

If you have a Sonos One, make sure to click the 'add' link underneath 'music & content'.

Bill just mentioned that Radio Paradise is now available as a Music Service in Sonos, but I'm not seeing it. The previous post in this thread mentioned something about a "preview" service. Is it generally available yet?

EDIT: Found it under Sonos Labs

You can invoke the new mixes like so.

"Alexa play Radio Paradise Mellow Mix  on Tune In"
"Alexa play Radio Paradise Rock Mix on Tune In"
"Alexa play Radio Paradise World Mix on Tune In"

Can leave off "on Tune In"  if you don't have the rp skill installed.

You can add custom streams to tune in but that doesn't seem to support flac for now.

And there are some issues with the RP skill on Sonos.   The best way to use audio commands for now is to use Tune In
"Alexa play radio paradise using tune in"

and If you disable the Radio Paradise skill.
"Alexa play Radio Paradise"  
should have it start on tune in.

Sorry about the outage. Our master stream server went wonky while I was asleep. All better now.

Greetings Bill. I trust all is well. My Sonos has decided that RP is not going to work today. I can stream RP directly on my cell phones and computers, but dear old Sonos is a no go. Did the standard resets, reloads, etc. And I talked to the uncle of one of the Sonos engineers about them, who is a friend of mine.  The uncle is a true believer now in RP, btw. Now I am trying to get him to pry his wallet open. He said they are an engineering company and not a software company. BAH, I say. And he said that they are an awesome data collection firm. All other music  apps are working of course. I persist in nagging. Hope it is a simple reset or just go into no RP withdrawals for a few hours and try again. :-)

I too have issues with SONOS. It's a clunky system for sure. It easily decides to you reset things before it will respond. But at least it dosen't drop much.
What DOES drop a lot is the FLAC selection when playing through my PC. I'm direct wired to a pretty fast and stable internet connection, FLAC should not be a problem but constantly it is.
Lower bit-rates all seem to work fine. But man, I love that FLAC!  I sure wish I could listen to it.
  Any suggestions?
