Amazon Echo Discussion / Speaker Group Problem
« Last post by shacky4 on November 01, 2022, 11:02:02 am »
I have several Echo devices in my home.  They are all on the same wifi. When I play music on one device (regardless of the source-Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music)  it will play all day.  When I play it on the Everywhere group, it will sometimes play for an hour or two and sometimes for only 5 or 10 minutes.  Mostly, it plays for less than an hour.  Does anyone have any tips on how to make this work better?
Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: is gosund and ghome compatible

not that familiar with them but based on experience, if a device is compatible with another, it would be part of the setup in the app.   There should be a list of what is compatible in the app to select when from doing a setup.   If there is nothing, then my guess would be not compatible.   One thing to note, sometimes there are features for the smart devices that are only available in its own app.

I have numerous gosund devices purchased from amazon and setup with gosund app and alexa.
i wanted to get more but now amazon doesn't carry gosund.  What they show is ghome brand.
Does anyone know if ghome devices will work in the gosund app like the gosund devices?

could you not get the same using by installing the alexa app in windows?   You can download the alexa app from the microsoft store.

Check out Trigger CMD it will allow you to control Trigger various things on a PC Mac or Linux via Alexa or Google home. You may need to create a script on your PC and or an Alexa routine but it should do what you want. If you get stuck the author is very helpful as well as the forum members
Smart Devices and Gadgets / Using Echo Show as an INPUT device on a PC

Hey Everyone!

I have a gen 2 Show and wanted to know if anyone has found a way to make it an INPUT device into a PC. I have a nice audio setup on my PC and would LOVE to incorporate Alexa functionality into it. It has no audio outputs, only a micro USB port that allegedly can only be used for an ethernet cable if wifi isn't available. I would love to be able to tell Alexa to play a song, and A. it simply outputs sound through my PC to my speakers or B. controls Amazon Music to do the same.

I think the ideal scenario is a relationship between the show and the amazon music app on my PC where the echo show can be the input device, but will also show the music artwork and song playing on the PC. Likely no solution, but I wanted to check to see if anyone has ever found a way.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Fire TV Cube goes mute
« Last post by jbcamel on October 27, 2022, 10:53:36 am »
I have a new Fire TV Cube 4th gen. It is attached to a Samsung TV with no external speakers.

When I try to use the Cube as an Alexa Echo device with TV off I have the following problem:

If I as her anything that she can respond to in her own Alexa voice it works fine. (time, weather, etc.) If I ask her to play something like music, a radio station, news, the Alexa voice says she is going to play it and then it goes mute and I hear nothing at all. After that point if I ask her something she can answer in her own voice I also hear nothing. The light on the cube indicates that she is responding but there is no sound.

The only time everything works normally is when the TV is on and everything comes through the TV speakers.

The speaker setting in the Alexa app is "built-in speaker"

At first, after spending 45 minutes on the phone with Amazon tech support and getting nowhere, I thought it was a faulty device and got a replacement.  But the replacement does the exact same thing so it's clearly a software issue.  Possibly a setting that I'm not aware of.   I was assured by Amazon that I should be able to use the cube as an Echo with the TV off.

Echo Technical Support / Re: Re-registering a Dot

You don't necessarily need a cell phone to register any Echo device. But having a cell phone makes the setup easier. What you do absolutely need is an Amazon account.

It sounds like what happened to you is that you registered your friend's Echo Dot on your own Amazon account. Anything that's registered on your Amazon account can be accessed by other devices on your account. That would explain why your friend's Echo Dot can hear activity on your Eufy doorbell.

Your friend needs to setup his Echo Dot with his own Amazon account.

not sure about this since I do not have windows os on my computers but you can download and install the alexa app on a win10 and 11 pc.  Might be able to re-register the dot that way.   Also, does the friend have a tablet?   If so, you can install the app and use it to register.
