Plan on buying something to interface the TV with Alexa. I use the Logitech Harmony Hub (Puck only... I don't need another remote). Is challenging to set up but there's lots of support to help online.
My Alexa environment includes :
1 full Sized Echo
4 Echo Dots
1 Echo Spot
1 Amazon Firestick with Alexa Voice Remote.
Several Hue Lights with a single bridge
4 Fire Tablets (2 of which now have "SHOW Capabilities" if switched to "Show Mode"!!!!

Hi, I am an Australian with an Echo and soon to have the Dot and the Harmony hub for my TV and audio equipment.. Can’t buy the remote control for an echo in Australia.... Bought them in Aust and I’m hoping they play nice together, done a little bit with lights and sonnoffs and they are so far working pretty well. Can’t get the relays controlled by a 8266 working yet with Alexa as there seems to be something wrong with the fauxmo library and version two of the echo, they will fix it in time I guess... anyway hello 😉

Hello, all -- and thank you for establishing this forum!

I'm new to using the Echo and Echo Dot, but have been having fun learning their capabilities.  I especially like the voice pickup range of the Echo Dot -- about 15 feet away, behind a semi-closed door!

I purchased an Echo and an Echo Dot in a combination deal, and want to explore how to best use the two of them.

Hello everyone!  :D

I'm Paul from the UK, and I have an Echo Spot in my bedroom. I've only had it a few months, but it's proving useful and good fun.

Thanks so much for setting this up, I found that the Amazon official forum's were a nightmare too.

Hi, I just got an echo and i am satisfy with it.  and it is hard for me to make it shut when there is a conversation that must be private. So it comes to me to make a device that can easily shut alexa from listening by saying "privacy".
i am making the project not to earn profit i just want to help everyone to gain there privacy in an easiest way. Just like the device did to me. And i just need a little help to make the project successful.  so just personally message me if want to know more about the project.

I am too excited to tell everyone how cool is it .

Tap connectivity priblems

We’ve had our Amazon Tap for over a year. We never had problems with it until recently. Could only play Pandora and Bluetooth wouldn’t work. I uninstalled, reinstalled, etc several times to no avail. After contacting our internet provider and ruling out WiFi problems, we decided to purchase a new Tap. When the new Tap arrived I was so excited to finally have one work with all of the features. NO SUCH LUCK!  It had the same issues.

I finally called Amazon and found out they’re currently having problems with the Tap and should have it fixed in a couple of days. I was angry. I just purchased a new Tap and was never told about the problems beforehand. Needless to say, if I’d have known, I’d never had purchased a second Tap. I’m a loyal Amazon customer but this was a big disappointment to me.
