Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Leave My Setting Alone!!!
« Last post by jwlv on November 17, 2023, 11:03:09 pm »
At one point I had 8 Echo Shows. Every other week Amazon did something to change my home screen. Whether it's adding some "new feature" or change something I had on the home screen. Can you imagine my frustration having to go to each one of the Echo Shows to disable the new feature and put things back the way it was every few weeks?

Slowly one by one I traded in each of the Echo Shows and replaced them with Echo Dots with clock. Amazon allows a trade in every few months and they also give you $20 off a new Echo device.

Life as a Beta Tester... it's rough.

You could always make your own and hope to come in at a dollar level around what Amazon produces them and sells them (at a loss, I suspect) for... If you're gonna play the Voice assistant game, you have to have thicker skin about things than if you had paid for a fully functioning voice assistant, when you're buying the loss leader of Amazon. I pay the extra on their tablets to stop all ads... I wish they had an Ad-Delete program on these AI voice assistants too... I pay it. I'd pay 50 bucks for it. But until then... I'll continually set all my settings each time they do an update... and without complaint. Stuff is too cheap to complain.

nothing you can do about it.    that is why I dumped two of my three shows.   the only reason I kept one is for the ring doorbell and it will be gone if I can find a replacement.     I also noticed they started combining good features with bad under one buttons.    I had to disable communications because of this.   

At this time, the only way to stop the unwanted content is to run photo frame.   It will run three hours at a time rotating your images.    Just have to restart it after some routines and commands.

Why am I constantly having to turn off Home & Clock / Home Content categorys????   I know what content I want.  Stuff that I have previously turned off have been re-turned on.  It is ridiculous that the powers that be are constantly screwing with my settings.  There should be a LOCK on settings.

I will try that. Thanks

Amazon Echo Discussion / Echo will not go into setup mode
« Last post by glmoore0001@comcast.net on November 12, 2023, 06:07:46 am »
My Echo Plus was originally in an "everywhere group".
I tried to pair it to my Samsung and after that it would not do anything but spin light blue/dark blue . I have powered it down and left it for days, pushed a paperclip into every small hole hoping to reset, nothing changes no matter what I do. it will not go into setup mode.
If I go to devices in the app, it shows the echo not connected to the Network. If I click that device, it takes me to the "No Orange Light?" page and tells me what to do to get the unit into setup mode. None of those button combinations do anything, it continues to spin light blue/dark blue.
I would appreciate suggestions, thanks... Gary

Aha, it does not show this is you are adding to a list OTHER than the Shopping one. So make a new list, call it Grocery or maybe the name of your supermarket, and use that instead of the Shopping one.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Your Follow Updates
« Last post by renegade600 on November 09, 2023, 06:34:24 pm »
Echo or Dot? Yes to both. It is going globally to all my Echo and Dot devices.

Home content:  I cannot find where to check this. Although it is going globally, and is a follow-up to a question on one device, do I have to go to all devices and modify home content individually, once I find out where and how?

Notifications: Cannot turn off all notifications without gutting the functionality of these devices. I cannot discover how to turn off this specific notification.

To be clear, it is not "follow up" but "your follow" that I need to eliminate.

Settings for my device: Only Photo Display is listed under settings for my Echo show devices. On my Dot devices, only Bluetooth settings are listed. I have not discovered how to find a setting that takes care of content on each device.

I suspect this is not a problem to be solved on each device, as the notifications are going out globally to all devices. Seems like a feature or skill, but searching has yielded no results so far.

home content is under settings on the show screen.
