Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Echo Auto - First Impressions
« Last post by kenf on September 19, 2019, 09:00:23 am »
When you hook it up in your car and start driving, give it about two minutes or so before you ask for music or whatever.  I takes a couple of minutes for it to sync up. I was too impatient in the beginning and didn't think it was working.

Good to know.  We'll see how it works out, probably this weekend when I have time to mess with it.

Echo Technical Support / Re: Echo 1st Gens will not play music

Are you using a VPN? What internet provider do you have? Years ago when I had Time Warner internet, they blocked certain ports to prevent people from running servers. Some of the ports they blocked were for SMTP email, FTP transfers, and a few others. Perhaps searching Google for your ISP and blocked ports can reveal some clues.

My network is IPv4 only, so that's not it.

I think I got mine working as it should.  It appears it needed a firmware update!

My Echo Auto generally works perfectly now, but there will be days when reception can be poor. I chalk it up to atmospheric conditions and it loses the connection.

Just got my echo auto.Went thru the setup, all way well, played thru my cars Bluetooth audio.  It seems that after giving Alexa a couple of commands that work after that if I say Alexa the blue light goes on, then shuts and no commands are recognized.  In the Alexa app it say not connected but when I check phone’s Bluetooth settings it says it is connected.  If I unplug the echo auto and then plug back in it works again for a couple of commands and that’s it, same cycle begins again.  Any ideas what could be wrong?  I even deleted the device and then went thru setup again with the same results!

I just brought it in the house, connected it to power, worked for about 5 commands, did the same thing, blue light comes on then shuts as I am talking to it.

Echo Development & Technical Discussion / Reminders in routine
« Last post by Chris on September 13, 2019, 01:01:38 pm »
Alexa routine in the morning sets off my alarm and some other things.
Most importantly, reads my calendar for today and tomorrow.
Wonderful!
But why can't I get my reminders for the day in a routine?
Surely this can't be so difficult to implement?
