Is this for BBC stations? Tell Alexa to "play Radio 2 from TuneIn" and it should play through the Sonos player. If you don't qualify it, Alexa will load the BBC skill and use that to play through the Dot.

Same issue here - was working fine this weekend and asking "Play BBC R2" would select play through preferred (i.e. SONOS) speaker without reference to TuneIn or room name... now have to specify either name or reference TuneIn.. What has changed over the weekend?

Preferred (Sonos) option works as expected for all other sources. Would like Sonos to be default speaker for ALL streams.
