Same problem. None of my echos will play rp! I’ve rebooted them multiple times. It says welcome to radio paradise And then silence. When I ask what is playing she says nothing playing. When I ask her to ask rp what’s playing it correctly reports the current song, corresponding to what’s live on my cell phone during the test. This has been the case for at least 2-3 days now.

 
Very sorry about that. Server glitch while I was away for a couple of days. Should be ok now.
 
It’s working now! Thanks Bill!

Hello all morning I cannot get Alexa to play my lovely RP. I unplugged Alexa, I disenabled the RP skill and re-enabled it. Nothing is working. My internet is through AT&T. Any advice? I don't know what to try. I saw Bill's note about hopefully fixing issue on Oct 22 but 2 weeks later am I the only one having this problem?

We're transitioning Alexa from MP3 to AAC streaming (better sound, lower bitrates = better reliability) & the path has been a bit rockier than we expected. Sorry about that.

I just made another change that might have corrected the problem that came up for you.

 
Working fine this morning, and I totally support a little short term pain for a better long term experience.  I just wanted to make sure I knew if it was isolated to my network / unit.

Thank you for making possible this station that is such an important part of my musical exploration and for having the courage to continue to experiment with it.

So, for a few days, the skill was working without issue, but at least since yesterday, Alexa has been unable to access the Radio Paradise skill.  I've power cycled the device and have disabled and reenabled the skill without luck.  Any suggestions?

Thanks

FWIW, the skill is still behaving strangely for me.  Intermittently, it will start silent on me.  I restarted the Echo, and I disabled and re-enabled the skill yesterday, but this morning it started silent again.  BUT, when I asked Alexa to skip to the next track, I got audio.  I'll continue to experiment.

We're trying to sort this out. Very sorry about the problem.

It seems to be working fine for most people (including me & our developer), but a few of you are still having an issue.

Might be worth trying a device reset (unplug & restart).

Just applied a temporary fix for a problem. Try it now.

Hi Bill!

I would love to see this skill in Germany. Are there any news yet? Do you need any help for translation or beta testing (if possible)?

Thanks!

It will keep the bitrate setting.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand your request and have not learned that skill.

There's more info in a different thread: RP On Amazon Echo

To get started, just say "Alexa, enable Radio Paradise".

There should be more info in the Alexa app on your device once you enable it.



 
Great, thanks!  I gave that command & Alexa responded with "I've enabled Radio Paradise, but it requires you to set up your account.  See the Alexa App for instructions".  

*edit:  Dang, like 2 minutes later I started using commands like "Skip" etc and it's working!  Sort of automagically!

Very cool stuff....
