Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Echo Show 8 question
« Last post by Macdawgg on August 18, 2021, 10:38:49 pm »
Took some searching but I found out why-Seems you have to go into settings and then photo&display and scroll down and turn off auto-sleep. Mine was on and turned it off and bingo works!

« Last post by Macdawgg on August 18, 2021, 10:06:40 pm »
Hey guys I have an Show8 and for some reason especially at night the screen goes black. I can awaken it by calling it's name and everything else works but for some reason it just goes Black. Has anyone else experienced this?

Echo Technical Support / Routines and devices dependent on one Echo
« Last post by mrschwarz on August 16, 2021, 08:55:51 am »
I have two echo devices, a Dot and a Show. They are in two different rooms, but are fairly close together (within earshot). I have several devices and routines,most of which I set up when I only had the Dot. When I got the Show, I set it up with the same account and added it to the group 'All Devices', along with the Dot.

Lately the Dot has had problems staying connected to my wifi network. Unplugging it and reconnecting usually works for a short while, then it loses the wifi connection again. It's not a problem with the network. Everything else works on it. This isn't my immediate problem though.

Whenever the Dot goes offline, none of the older devices and routines work on the Show. I can't find where a device or routine is associated with a specific Echo device, but it appears they are.

How can I get them to be associated with my Show instead of my Dot? Thanks in advance.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Putting a time limit on how long an alarm sounds for.
« Last post by jarwyn on August 16, 2021, 06:21:14 am »
OK so this is a bit of a long shot as i don't see how it could be possible but I thought I'd ask anyway incase someone has found a workaround or something.

We have a 'spot' in our bedroom which has an alarm to wake us up each morning. However most mornings one or both of us are up and out of the bedroom before the alarm sounds. For various reason I won't go into - we don't always remember to 'physically' cancel the alarm on the show or remember to say "Alexa, cancel alarm".

This results in the alarm sounding for ages (I've never actually measured how long it plays for) until one of us actually hears it and cancels it (I know I can cancel it from any alexa device).

It's not a huge problem (I could always set a later reminder to cancel the alarm lol) but I wondered if there was a hidden setting or something that I can set to only sound the alarm for 10 minutes or something like that?

Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for any comments.

Tks for reply.

As for Q2, I just need to say Alexa, stop? Then I call it a day?

It is normal to connect after being powered off.  It has to connect to your wifi, then has to connect to the cloud and who knows what else before going live.   There is no standby mode on alexa devices other than just waiting for the wake word.   No reason to power off at the end of the day.   Someone else will have to answer about power consumption.

Tks for reply.
