I have a problem with BBC R4 on the Sonos speakers using the Tune-in app. The playback frequently drop-outs for several seconds each minute or so before resuming. The fault has been around for around 10 days.
Sonos Support advised they are aware of the issue, are looking for solutions, and say it is exclusive to those who use Virgin Media as their ISP.
Is VM aware of the issue and, if so, is it being addressed?
I have no issues with internet radio on laptop, mobile phone or Revo Superconnect.
I contributed to the thread in the link. As you say, the issue is no longer viewed as VM specific but is not reported to apply to all ISPs.
In my experience, the BBC/Sonos problem appears solely to be down to the Limelight CDN used by Tune-in. I have taken the advice of other contributors to that thread and manually added the Akamai CDN as the source for BBC Radio audio.
Since the change, I have experienced no further issues with sound drop out on the Sonos.
Hi. I've been having this issue for over 5 years with intermittent internet and for some reason very broken radio stream specifically with BBC. It is currently terrible and driving me mad as it's impossible to hear a full song or news item without it breaking up. I've recorded it so have examples. I do understand this is a recognised issue. Please please please can you look into it and help! Thank you !
