Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Changing areas on Echo
« Last post by Laurel on September 19, 2018, 10:18:46 pm »
Hello,
I was waiting for some real technical member to answer you, but no answers so I will give it a go. On the website i.e. alexa.amazon.com, go to settings, devices and choose your Echo, scroll down and you will see "device location.  Just fill that out with your address in Spain.  Good luck.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Changing areas on Echo
« Last post by MickeySpillane on September 19, 2018, 11:20:45 am »
I have just bought Amazon Echo. I am located in Spain but it thinks I am in the USA. How do I change this. I am connected to Alexa with my iMacbook Pro. I do not have the App on a phone. Any help would be most useful.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Routine on 2 devices
« Last post by martygwilliams on September 19, 2018, 10:34:20 am »
You can make it play music to a music group, though.

You add your echos to a group and then create a routine that plays music. Where you type in the kind of music, just add "On everywhere" or whatever your group's name is called. For instance, "Play Queen on everywhere" would play queen on my everywhere group.

I really need to be able to schedule announcements on a group of echos. I'm hoping that someone else figures out a way to do that.

Thanks,

Marty

Thanks! I'm trying it out. I am using the free VPN VpnGate through the standard VPN setup on Win 10, and sharing it through WiFi hotspot. Having some trouble with the password and speed, but if I can get it to work, this just might do the trick!

I am hoping for a robot that will follow you around as one of the 8  :-)

That would be the next Alexa device I buy if it was some kind of robot that can follow me or come to me when I call for it.

I dunno.  I'm not that interested in 3rd party devices with Echo built-in.  Some of the Echo features weren't supported in 3rd party stuff. 

I have a vobot alarm clock that can't do spotify, but is a much cheaper alternative than the spot.

In my car I have this small mount called Logitech Zero Touch that does handsfree alexa, I wave at my phone and voila. Again, no spotify which certainly is annoying in the car, but I like the general idea a lot. I would buy a good alexa solution for my car  :)

Echo Technical Support / Re: Hard reset of echo dot
« Last post by jwlv on September 18, 2018, 05:16:37 pm »
Blue light going around usually indicates an insufficient power supply. Are you using the USB cube that came with your Echo Dot? If you are using a different one, it might not be supplying enough power to the Echo Dot.

The official Echo Dot USB cube should look like this:
https://www.amazon.com/Amazon-Official-Charger-Adapter-eReaders/dp/B01I0IGFKC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1537305266&sr=8-4&keywords=echo+dot+power+adapter

Note that the specifications show 9 Watt, 1.8 Amp.  Older USB power supplies only provide 0.5 Amp. Some newer ones supply 1.0Amp. That's still not enough power to drive an Echo Dot.

A less likely scenario is the USB cord that you are using. Some older USB cords use really thin wires. Thin wires might not be sufficient to carry power that the Echo Dot requires. So make sure you're using the original USB cord too.

If you are in fact using the official Amazon power supply and the original USB cord, it is still possible that it is malfunctioning or the cord is damaged in some way.
