When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

A little help
« on: November 30, 2016, 09:42:19 pm »
Everything with the Dot 2, seems to be working just dandy. I'm on Amazon site and noticed the settings for the Dot. I click on settings, what's playing and all say, I'm not connected. The Dot thinks it's connected (lol) and my wifi settings says it's connected also. Any ideas as to why Amazon site states different?

I was hoping someone else would have an answer but maybe, like me, they don't know what you mean by the Amazon site. I can't find anything on Amazon that relates to the settings (a mirror of their status) on my Echo/Dot devices, so either I'm not looking in the right place or that's not what you mean. Are you maybe talking about the app on your phone? There are settings there that tell you whether a device is on or offline and also what's playing. That said, I still wouldn't know why they would say off-line when they weren't!

From the Amazon Echo Dot (set up) help site

I'm just curious. My app states online. The site is eh strange. Once there, it shows online, then a few seconds later, all info is gone and it says, the dot is offline.
I'm just curious why this happens.
Thanks for your reply!!!!!

Well, that's a revelation - thank you for the tip! Mine's the UK site but yes, it's all there. It replicates the app and right now, it shows my Echo and one Dot on line and playing (different radio stations, in case that's of interest) and the other Dot offline which is right. So in short, you've enlightened me and I've been no help to you at all!

lol, good to know it all shows up and though I'm back to my question, you have provided that it does show up.

One step forwards then! We're a few days on now - is the situation still the same? If it is, I'd contact tech support to see if they can explain/help; it would annoy the bejabbers out of me.

And just a correction to my previous post since detail is important; when I said the other Dot was offline, what I meant was that it wasn't playing, it wasn't offline and it wasn't being reported as such so web status and actual status were in sync.
