maybe like with the show, it will display security cams a lot quicker.  with other devices, you have to turn them on then navigate to the camera view.  with the show, you just have to tell it to open a camera.  that would be a benefit for google nest devices.  I could see other uses for it too. 

I just hope the different ai companies, flood the market and confuse their customers with all the different devices.

It's in the Alexa app, under Settings > Music Video and Books > and you'll see the name of your Fire TV.
If you have more than one Echo device, make sure you have selected the right one. Since Fire TV can only be linked to one Echo device, you'll only see it if you've selected the Echo that it's linked up to.

Hmm that's quite interesting. I didn't think it was possible to push events or commands to Alexa. I wonder how they did it.

Echo Technical Support / UNpairing Alexa and Fire Stick??
« Last post by malliekm on October 21, 2017, 09:39:01 am »
My sister enabled her Alexa to work with her Fire Stick and tv.  I know nothing about Alexa and tv control and Fire Sticks so bear with me.
She wants to unpair/disconnect the Fire Stick from her Alexa but doesn't know how.  I led her to the Amazon website, under her devices but that wanted to remove the Firestick (she says) and she still uses that.
Here are two screen shots she sent.  She doesn't understand why the Firestick doesn't show up under Devices.
Could someone please help her?

Echo Technical Support / Unable to link accounts for skills?
« Last post by Wa10 on October 21, 2017, 08:37:05 am »
Hi everyone,

I have an original Echo which I have used for a little while mostly just for music and alarms ext.

Tried to install the MYO2 skill a while back and had a problem that when I clicked on link account, it took me to the O2 login screen however when I enter my login details and click login it looks back to the Alexa home screen, and the account isn't linked.

Assumed it was simply an issue with the O2 skill, and it wasn't important so I didn't bother trying anything to make it work. However I've just installed a Tado Smart Thermostat this morning, and I'm having the same issue linking that skill- it just looks back to the home screen every time. :(

Any ideas greatly appreciated, as the Tado skill is one of really like to be able to use.


Google Home / Google Home With a Screen?

Really? I just don't get it.  We have connected TVs, computers, tablets, phablets, and phones with screens. 
And if some of these devices don't have built-in AIs already they soon will.  How could there possibly be a market for another screened device?  But, you'll be able to watch YouTube on this one!  Of course you can already do that on your TV, computer, tablet, phablets and phones.

Are the google devices onlu on display, or are they operating? 

the ones I saw were for sale, sealed in their boxes.
