Microsoft Cortana / Re: Cortana FTW!

Ok. thanks. The VR I know is virtual reality, LOL. That's why I was kinda confused.

Oh wow. Ok so about the only thing Alexa added is it made home automation more user friendly, LOL.

Shocked how cheap Kinect is now. Remember how expensive they were? We have a Kinect but it got broken when we moved.

I was planning on doing those gesture hacks controlling your TV on Kinect. Oh well.
Echo Technical Support / Re: 3 dots won't connect no matter what

Relocating the router should have nothing to do with this.  Maybe the Alexa server crapped out during the time you you had router disconnected.  Re-registering Dots not necessare.  Rebooting them may be adviseable so unplug all of them.  Next reboot the modem and then the router.  After wierless system is up and running again, plug in each Dot , but do so one at a time and check the first one, if it is working, do the next ones.

If this does not help, write back.
Echo Technical Support / 3 dots won't connect no matter what
« Last post by SteveT on December 09, 2017, 12:50:41 pm »
I moved my Nighthawk AC1900 router from a corner of my 1700 sf home to a central location. Every other wireless device reconnected. My 3 Echo Dots refuse to connect at all. I've followed most of the advise from the *** "READ THIS IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE SETTING UP YOUR ECHO TO WIFI"
Nothing works. All it did was move the router. It wasn't off for more than a few minutes.

The only thing I haven't done is to un register and re register.

I've had power failures before and the 3 dots have always just picked right up where they left off. I shouldn't have to un register and re register all three. do I?
Any other suggestions?
If I have to re register will all the skills and stuff stay or will I have to re add?

I want to the the same thing. I will be trying this “Control TuneBlade with Amazon Echo - HowTo!”!category-topic/breakfreeaudio/tuneblade/1023v5ybXzw
Not sure it works, but it looks promising.
Echo Technical Support / Echo Dot Harmony Issue
« Last post by GADAD on December 09, 2017, 12:44:07 pm »
Hi after searching the forums I can't see this problem anywhere so

Have an Harmony Hub attached to an echo Dot. The Harmony Hub turns on/off all devices when I use the remote or the mobile app. However, when using Alexa, it will either turn on  or turn off the appropriate devices. When I say watch tv it may or may not work. If it doesn't work, I can go on the remote hit help and say fix and everything will turn on. Then when I say turn off, everything will work fine. Conversely, if it does turn on everything, when I say turn off it will not work. Again have to go to help on the remote and everything shuts down correctly.

Any suggestions?
Amazon Echo Discussion / Loop Mode Stops Working
« Last post by omega0401 on December 09, 2017, 12:28:09 pm »
I use two sleep music from 2 different skill sources.  When I play either one and say, alexa loop mode on, Alexa says loop mode on and will remember it.  Later the sound stops.  If I ask Alexa for the time, it gives me the time and then starts the sleep music back on!  Loop mode used to work but not now.  I think this is an Echo problem not a skill problem.  Anyone have any solution?
Echo Across the Pond (UK/International) / TV listings in UK
« Last post by StevenR on December 09, 2017, 11:12:38 am »
Has anybody else in the UK noticed that you can now get TV listings through Alexa?
It seems limited though since, as far as I can tell with my testing, the only channel it will give full listings for is BBC One. Saying "Alexa, what's on BBC One tonight" will give the the programmes on BBC One but any other channel (e.g. "Alexa, what's on BBC Two tonight") will just give a list of top programmes across several channels (appears to be BBC1, BBC2, ITV, and Channel 4).
Has anybody had any different results, are there any other channels which you can get full listings for?

Just an update info for others if you run into the same issue. I am in Canada and setup my mini with my USA Amazon account as I wanted to use Alexa to control my Sonos speakers. This skill is not yet available in Canada. When I went to add household member, I was adding my wife's Canadian Amazon account. Fixed problem by creating a USA account for her. All working well.
Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Routines - New "Alexa says" Action
« Last post by StevenR on December 09, 2017, 09:18:18 am »
Yes, I'm sure this is only a problem in the UK as just about the only other thing I can find in a Google search reporting this issue with "Simon Says" (apart from another post by me on these forums from last year) is this YouTube video (also from last year) demonstrating the issue by somebody else in the UK. I've submitted feedback to Amazon via the Alexa app regarding this, so hopefully they will fix this.
