RP is currently not available via TuneIn or Sonos Radio in the UK, due to licensing issues. We're working to resolve that. In the meantime, give our Sonos music service a try.

In the Sonos phone app (not the computer desktop app), tap 'Settings', then 'Add a Service', and find us on the list. After that, we'll be available on the 'Browse' menu.


 
Bill, Thanks very much for your help with this - RP back on !!!
I can confirm that all RP stations work in UK using this method - including RP Main

Thanks once again

Love the Sonos service, just a minor quibble, every now and then there are some song transitions that are a bit harsh, not something i have noticed on the "main" feed.  Other than that, its Saul Goodman

Stay safe and sane...

Bill ... look forward to the FLAC stream!

Couple things ... 
1. I noticed that recently the Sonos Service no longer has the Sync option. Is this by design? 
2. I use the Android app on my Sony Android TV. I saw that there is a Sync to Sonos capability. That's great as it allows me to use the app with the rolling pictures in 4K and have it sync'd to RP playing on other Sonos players (or so in theory) ...
- If there are 5 other Sonos players in the home, how does the app know which one to sync to? There is no choice and different players may be playing different streams
- I noticed after a while that the app on the TV is no longer in sync and, indeed, seems to be playing something completely different, or, in some cases stops streaming

That would indeed be the best of all worlds :-). I would be ready to donate a substantial share of the price of my hifi setup for this feature !! 

Thanks a lot Bill & Rebecca for all the work you’ve already done.

I've now switched from Tunein to Sonos Radio RP Service. Seems to work a treat, but there is a plethora of choices that weren't particularly clear to me, so I've put my thoughts/experiences down here.

The Sonos Radio stations now contain and replace the Tunein RP options (Main, Mellow, Rock and Eleclectic/World mixes). I have seen somewhere that the Sonos Radio feeds are 128KBit.

The RP service provides 3 choices (128KB, 320KB and Sync). The first 2 each cover the 4 mixes above. The Sync divides into Sync 128KB and Sync 320KB  options, each of which similarly cover the 4 mixes. All of the service options seem to offer the skip forward function (PSD) and skip back (to the start of the track) option.

As a longtime RP Sonos user used to having the website open on 'Track' for the info (without PSD - good for my musical education!), I can't quite get my head around  how skip forward/PSD works so that things keep vaguely in sync with the website/feed. I'd appreciate it if someone could correct any misunderstandings I have made above and clarify how things keep in sync...
I've since discovered that after one PSD another gives you Bill's dulcet tones, so I guess that happens when skip takes you too far adrift of the mainstream.

A FLAC feed would be nirvana, but I reckon my aging ears would filter out any benefit.

(side thread on methods for feeding FLAC into Sonos) 
I can currently use the FLAC feed from my PC through a Sonos:5 play analog input to stream to other units around the house, but that makes it digital (stream to PC player)-analog (PC output-Play:5)-digital (Play:5 to any other Sonos kit)-analog before it hits the ears instead of the normal single DA conversion with streaming.  

A more convoluted method is by mirroring a pc to my TV and grouping the Soundbar with other units and using the digital feed from TV to Soundbar. My Sony Bravia TV browser app alas doesn't work for the RP website, which would have simplified matters!

Alternatively adding a Creative USB Soundblaster with optical digital output and feeding directly into the Soundbar or a Connect optical inputs works, but the missus tends to whinge about the birdsnest wiring effect this causes, as the Soundbar and Connect are installed away from a PC!

Thanks, and keep up the good work!

The "Sync"  feature will  play the channel in sync with the live stream.   Also other devices you listen on should show up in the sync list .

There are still some issues with syncing we're trying to sort out.  So for now  things don't  properly sync and start at the beginning of the song.

I am listening to a group of five Sonos devices all on the most current software. 

Is there anything else you'd like to know?

ALSO

I'm frequently experiencing transitions to the next song 5-10 seconds before the current song ends. (Songs are getting cut off just before the end.)  Is there anything I should try?  

Thanks!
 

Is that on the 'favorites' mix? 
 

It's the Main Mix. I do have it set up as a Favorite, but I'm not sure whether it's the Main Mix that's under the "RP 320kb" channel or the "RP Live Streams 320kb" channel.
