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

I love it when companies step up and go the extra mile for their customers

I'm also using the USB plug that came with it, and the WiFi router is within 10 feet of the Dot.  It has been working just fine for months, until recently, when all this started.

Power supplies eventually do burn out or become less efficient. If you have another USB power supply of equal or greater amperage, I suggest trying it out. Power supplies for an iPad, Kindle/Fire Tablet, or Fire TV Stick should all be sufficient. If not, contact Amazon and they'll probably send you a new USB power supply for free if your Dot is still under warranty.

Yep, I've tried four different USB chargers.  One was from my other working Echo Dot, as well as the one from my iPad... nothing seems to help.  Also tried various cables.

Just got off the phone with Amazon, and they're going to warranty replace it, even though I bought it over a month ago.  Amazon support is awesome.

That sounds like the RCA receiver waking up from sleep mode.

Can you return it for an exchange?  Even if it's been longer than that allotted time, doesn't hurt to try :)

That's my next route, if this post doesn't get me anywhere with it.
