For weeks, maybe months, RP (direct) via Alexa on Echo has not been working.  Sometimes one song would play and then stop but mainly it just wouldn't work at all.  It worked well with Radio Paradise on Tune-In but the quality doesn't seem as good and I can't ask Radio Paradise what's playing.

But just today, I noticed it's working direct again!!

Hurray!

Be well

This has been giving me a lot more trouble than usual as well.   Will see what can be done.
I had to unplug and plug it back in to get mine working again yesterday.

I rather prefer to use RP app than TuneIn. I don't like the TuneIn quality.

I too am having issues getting RP via Alexa in the UK. I used to get it via Tunein, but this now only recognises the Rock Mix or Mellow Mix options, not the main/default version. I have also enabled the RP skill but when I try it on Alexa, I get an alternative and nowhere near as good imposter also called Radio Paradise.

Still not working for me.  A real bummer because I usually listen to RP while cleaning with the Alexa skill.

Is there an issue with the UK receiving RP via Alexa using the RP skill?
I understand Tunein are being wizard sleeves at the moment, but why is the RP app also failing here in the UK?

I miss my daily RP. Please help
 
We sincerely hope that PRS (the UK copyright agency) hasn't requested that our Alexa skill be disabled — like they have with TuneIn — but that's certainly a possibility. 

We'll see what we can find out.

RP defaults to a higher bitrate than most services (for better sound quality) and that can cause dropouts if there's network congestion. Try "Alexa, tell radio paradise to set bitrate to medium" (or low, if you still have problems).

I play RP from Tunein everyday via my Amazon Echo & Dot positioned on different floors of my home using my "Everywhere" group with no problems at all. Very reliable. The skill command I use is "Alexa, play Radio Paradise Everywhere"

I did have an issue the other day when I accidently turned off my Dot when trying to manually increase the volume. It seemed to put my Echo & Dot out of sync & so the Everywhere group wasn't behaving properly. I turned both the Echo & Dot off & on again and they were back in sync, so that was an Alexa problem, not RP.

Bill, one thing.... I typically listen to either the main web feed or the Mellow Mix. I invoke the mix with "Alexa, play Radio Paradise Mellow Mix Everywhere" with no issues. I'd like to be able to play the "My Favorites" mix but Alexa isn't handling it. If I say "Alexa, Play Radio Paradise My Favorites" or "Alexa, Play Radio Paradise My Favorites Mix" it comes back with "Radio Paradise from Tunein" and defaults to the main mix. Is there not an Alexa Skill for "My Favorites" or do you have another suggestion?

Thanks!
 

The 'Favorites' mix is only available via our Alexa skill — which does not work with speaker groups — and not via TuneIn. The phrase you use to start the stream, "Play Radio Paradise Mellow Mix" starts playback via TuneIn.
