Echo Across the Pond (UK/International) / Re: TV listings in UK
« Last post by StevenR on December 12, 2017, 01:25:20 pm »
Strangely, it seems that the list of top shows (if you ask for a channel other than BBC One or just "what's on TV") uses less up-to-date listings data than the more detailed listings for BBC One. This is particularly noticeable tonight because when you ask what is on BBC One it tells you that "Sports Personality of the Year" is on at 10:45 PM but the list of top shows has "Drugsland" on BBC One at that time.

So are you saying you just used - wake me up to tune in. And it played the last tune in station you listen to? Coz my work around is basically the same.
Yep. I have two stations in my favorites but it set to the last one I listened to.
I haven't tried with a station not in my favorites.

@asianrocker
Care to share your workaround?
I found if I said set alarm with tune in (at time) set an alarm which used the last station played with tune in.
However that also may be that it is in my tune in favorites. ::)

Well I want it to wake me up with 80s hits on tune in. I found it accidentally when I played BBC last on tune in and I said - wake me up to my favorite station. It played BBC. The only station on my fave list is 80s hits. So I played 80s hits. Stopped it, then use same command, it played 80s hits. LOL.

So are you saying you just used - wake me up to tune in. And it played the last tune in station you listen to? Coz my work around is basically the same. Ok, just tried that command. Yap, played the last tune in station you listen to. So either works.

Dear All,

My input: Alexa, X1, and X2 enter the room

Alexa Output: I know both of you
                     I know x1, x1 working here
                     I know x2, x2 working here


Regards,
VinothS

I can't figure out what your question is--sorry.  Can you try again re-phrasing the question please?

I am having trouble setting an alarm. I want to set mine to 8 AM Tune IN CKNW 980.  I got it set once practicing and cannot repeat it again.  Any help out there.  I wish I could enter it by writing it out.  I think Alexa is getting an angry voice as I have tried it so many times lol.

Maybe it's because I rarely set an alarm at night but this feature request is so far down on my list it doesn't even show up as a blip on the radar ;)  But, I'm glad for those of you who have been waiting for it!

After doing all that, did you remember to change your language back to US English? Because language selection affects the features too. I know coz I am in US but use UK English and some features does not work just coz I use UK english in here - US, like the chat feature, giving me error.

I finally went back to US english to have the full Alexa experience. Also noticed, I don't have to repeat my commands several times just to turn/off my lights.

Honestly, I think your problem would have been solved if you just changed back to US English, instead of doing all that you did.

Thanks.  I am going back to reset mine to US English as I am having no luck with the music alarms.
