Echo Technical Support / Lately, Echo Dot 2 at full volume after reboot...
« Last post by kk60 on November 23, 2017, 09:08:20 pm »
Since the past 2 weeks, every one of my Echo Dot 2 devices (5 of them) revert to full volume after being powered off then on (rebooted.)  They stay at full volume until either: 1) I tell Alexa to lower the volume or 2) I push either the volume up or down button once.  Doing either of those 2 things would cause the Echo Dot 2 devices to return to the previous volume level. 

Prior to 2 weeks ago, the Echo Dot 2 devices would automatically be at their pre-reboot volume levels after a reboot.

A few more things:

There is no longer a reboot tone and "Hello" notification during boot-up.

There is also now a noticeable delay before the Start of Request tone.

without knowing the model numbers of the tv and home theater, there is absolutely no way to tell you exactly how to set things up.  there is no way to know what ports are available.  or if they can even do what you want.

This is true... No true way to know. I was kinda banking on the OP to have a remote controlled Tuner Amp... I have a single output on my TV (Optical) that I run to my Audio system. It only need be in Digital mode when watching TV. The Audio output only plays what you have on the screen that way. If the Stereo is IR remotely controlled, I would still put my money on the Harmony Hub.

It has the $25 Walmart gift certificate label on it but I thought I understood you could only buy it online through Google Express.  Crazy crowded but so far everybody is nice

at this time the echo cannot do what you want.  it has the limited ability to recognize voices but will not stop anyone from giving commands.

I have a problem with the new Amazon Echo Dot 2. At first everything was fine but after some time the bar with the diodes started to shine one way no matter which side I was standing on. I made a restart disconnect from the electricity etc. Please help  :) ;) :D ;D

you could have always given shorten commands.  you could even make them a bit longer if you wanted to be a bit more conversational.  but it is fun trying to do things different to see what works and what don't  :-)

I was just about to post! ??? ::)
I had a bit of a time also adding it :-[.
Nothing ever is easy anymore is it?
Users out side North America have reported the Alexa skill fails to work unless your devices location is set to the USA.
Also my experience is the Alexa Skill only will allow devices configured as a TV to be seen by Alexa. :(

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Target Black Friday Sales for Echo and GH Products

renegade, for $19 you can get a Mini and see for yourself what I've been talking about ;)  Wish I needed more but I think 1 Dot and 4 GH/Minis covers it!



mini is not a spot and I really do not need another ai system.  I don't ask a lot of stupid questions so it is not needed.  that is really the only advantage the mini and gh in general has over the echo.  I did help someone setup their gh and it was a pain, especially with wemo devices.   I have nine wemo devices and sure don't want to have to set them up on a gh and reset them up after updates that require unlinking.  it is no fun having to crawl under tables and desks, move furniture and more just to get access to them just to link them.

I would like to eat donut :p
