Title: Remote device to add io pins to Alexa. For muting tv
Post by: Scanlighy on June 24, 2018, 06:27:00 am
A nice feature for the tech geeks would be a way to use io pins on the echo
Like a pin that goes high when alexa listens. This way I can wire my TV to mute te sound.

TV sound is really messing up alexa when she listens.
Need to shout to make myself clear. Although the wake word works flawlessly.
TV sounds in the background confuses alexa thinking somebody is still talking and ending up doing nothing.
When I mute my TV everything is working like it should.

So there must be a workaround for this issue.
