ooof

iirc they were whinging for a while about Alexa et al. stealing their ip about how to set up multi-room streaming

If the new app weren't so borked I would be thinking it's a last-gasp attempt to position themselves for a buyout. If it was, I think they screwed the pooch.

Its not just Sonos, but I can't express how much it pisses me off when companies make changes that are solely designed to produce new revenue streams, with no benefit to the users.

Here to report that I can play RP through the just released Sonos app.

Just about nothing else works except streaming, and many people are having problems with that. They estimate they will have a fix so I can play music from my music library in a month or so. It is unclear if it will be able to do it without an internet connection.

 One of the main reasons I only have one speaker is that I thought the old app was crap. They have outdone themselves.

Oh, and they forced the update to the new apps and you can't roll back to the old ones. CEO says users are a bunch of whingers.

Yes, the "new" headphones with sound waves.   The old instantiation had the classic round RP logo, just odd.

I used those links to add it back in and it down works.  This morning when I restarted RP this morning it now has meta data.  Woo-hoo!

Now the only thing annoying is when I click on it from the Sonos Favorites button, I get a voice advertise for 30 secs and then it joins RP.  Since I can't remember how I added RP to Sonos 2ish years ago, I haven't poked around at looking for it on tunein or sonos radio to avoid the ads.  That said, the add only happen once when I hit the play button and then RP plays continuously.  

Thanks,

Just to follow-up.  If you add RP with the URL on Sonos, you will get a 20-30 sec advertisement every time you hit play.   However, if you add RP as a "music service" and authorize Sonos to use your RP account, no add and you get the album  covers as well.  Everything is now back to normal. ;^)

Same problem, been working for two years and this morning, no joy.  I notice that the old RP logo was gone and now the "modern" art-deco one replaced it, which I'm not a fan of.  Oh well.

I deleted the the current channels and just pulled the URL link off the site an added it manually.   I got a weird voice add or two for about 45 secs and now it back to playing.  However, the song information no longer appears in the sonos app.  (grrrrr).

I'm sorry. We had an outage with one of our servers that broke RP across most devices. It should be restored at this point. Please let me know if you continue to have issues.

We are sorry for the short outage!

I see play History in my profile. Does that follow all streams and unique to what my login played? Thanks!
 


Yeah the best way at the moment is to go to the play history section on your profile page.
That is unique to you and covers all devices  that you can login to.

Just keep in mind that list gets reset occasionally.

Posting here to bring the topic to the top...
Any other Sonos users out there who are really missing the old website where the song "Info" page could track along with whatever was playing on your Sonos (even if songs were skipped)?

Yep. It now works perfectly. i have been listening to RP favorites for the past 4 days, almost non stop, and hardly heard a song repeated. It's also encouraged me to go back and rank more songs.

Thanks for pointing that out.   Favorites can now play all day and night.   Plus the glitches with song transitions should  be fixed.    At least haven't noticed any over past few hours.

Favorites works great. Plays only songs that I've ranked 7 or higher. I have well over 1000 songs ranked 7+. Brilliant. I knew that ranking all those songs would pay off someday.

The only issue I've found is that Favorites only seems to play 10 to 15 songs and then stops... i have to keep restarting it...

I think they mean discrete files as oppposed to local.     You still can't add the flac streams via their TuneIn service.    But services can play flac files.   As long it meets their supported specs.

My understanding from the Sonos site is that S2 does not yet support FLAC streaming, but local files only. https://support.sonos.com/s/ar...   I wonder if it’s truly coming through as FLAC?
