Echo Technical Support / Echo not playing music from Amazon Prime music
« Last post by ncezarus on September 26, 2017, 08:17:51 am »
I tried 3 times to reconfigure Echo for Amazon music to work. When I ask for play music I receive the following message and I can't find where the problem is:
Alexa, play some music

Your Amazon Music marketplace is not configured correctly for this device.

I could not find anything on the web about this issue.
Many thanks in advance

messed up and used your link and got 325.  should have searched for it myself, it would have been a better test since who knows what is included in the link these days.

I was reading about this yesterday and was going to post it when I got off of work this morning.  figure you would beat me too it since you are such a big fan of gh  :-P

it is good to have recurring reminders, especially those who gotta take medications and tend to forget.

Above might just work, although be sure you use the right wake word for your device.

You could say "Echo, hello" then when echo says "Hello" it will wake up the speaker, though you might not hear "her" say it. Then tell it what you want it to do.

Google Home / Google Home Reminders Rolling Out Now
« Last post by malliekm on September 25, 2017, 10:23:52 pm »
Starting today, Google is rolling out reminders.  You can create single reminders as well as recurring ones.
Here is a chart explaining how to set and manage GH reminders.

The article also says, "Location reminders are coming soon".

I was shown $325 for Shark when I clicked your link.

As for DVDs perhaps AMZ is stocking less DVDs these days.  I fear they will end up in with the stacks of Laser diskc and LPs.  Maybe it was just a fluke  Heck, check at eBay!

You might try sending feed back to the IHC apps developer and ask if /when that feature will be available. and if it is how to use it. ;)

I'll do that and let you all know
Any luck? If they add this, I will five star the skill and the product on amazon.

As soon as I say something nice about Amazon, they go and pull one of their more  infamous tricks.
I bought this vacuum about 3 weeks ago from the Shark infomercial.
https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=shark+powered+lift+awayt+speed+duo+clean
It was $300.  Last night while looking for a hose extender for it, I looked at the vacuum (on the Amazon site)
Same price, $300.
Today it's $325
I would be interested to know if it's $300 or $325 on other people's computers/phones

another rant about amazon

over the years I purchased a lot of dvds from amazon, lately I noticed they are saying a lot of newer releases will ship in 1 to 4 weeks.  I am wondering if they are trying to push people into purchasing the digital copy from them.  Its never been a problem before
