Google Home / Re: Using Broadcast to shut the dog up
« Last post by mike27oct on January 22, 2019, 03:19:59 am »
Thanks!  I have lots more alexa devices to do this with.  I did notice today that I can give broadcasts via Google assistant both in home network AND cell phone network.  I will see if Alexa app can do same.

Alexa Android app, send output to room speaker

I have a sonos play 5 in my living room, I do not have an echo in the living room. I can use the Alexa app on my Galaxy so to " play .... In living room" and it will play the music toy Sonos play 5.  Now I want to play an alexa game such as music quiz on my phone but I want the audio to go my sonos 5 , is this possible?  I tried "play song quiz in living room".    Another way I was trying to approach this was if I could assign  my phone / app to the living room and all output from Alexa will go to the speaker assigned to the living room.

Did you install BOTH the Harmony Skills and have Alexa discover them?  There is the primary Harmony Hub skill as well as a Harmony Secondary (red) Skill. The secondary creates additional scenes.

Alexa also has broadcast (say "announce" instead of "broadcast") that works exactly the same way. I've been using it to announce to the rest of the house that dinner's ready. :)
Just say "Alexa, announce."

Alexa Skill called MyRadar will work for local weather radar on your Echo Show.  Invoke by saying "Alexa show my radar".

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Volume, Change channel commands not working

Thanks for the reply. I already have Follow-Up mode turned off. This is a matter of focus. It seems that Alexa changes focus, after a period of time, from the TV/Harmony Hub, back to itself. If I use my Turn On TV voice command again, and THEN use a volume command, it works because the Turn on TV command refocuses Alexa on the TV/Harmony Hub skill. I just wish Alexa could maintain focus on everything itís connected to via the Skills.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Odd issue with Echo device.

None as far as I know. I didn't use Dish for my Internet. Am I wrong in assuming that's what it is referring to?

If you don't have dish anymore, and you disabled the Dish skill what provider will you be going to?
