Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Echo Studio and Airplay
« Last post by jwlv on October 10, 2019, 03:52:48 pm »
If it's Apple don't count on it. Historically Apple has rarely played nice with other hardware manufacturers. And when it does, it usually comes years later after pressure from consumer outrage.

Echo Technical Support / Re: Amended routine not propagating
« Last post by billbudd on October 10, 2019, 09:57:39 am »
Resolved!  There was a setting in the Alexa App which by coincidence had the same effect, so I switched this off and now my routine is working.  I guess the latest update of the Alexa app included this new setting.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Nonstop blue light spinning on all 4 dots!

Could it be this?
'A spinning blue light that ends with a purple flash indicates that Do Not Disturb has been activated.'

Amazon Echo Discussion / How to set up video call to video call on Show 5
« Last post by DanW on October 10, 2019, 05:50:15 am »
Hi,

I recently bought 2 x Show 5 to be able to video call my elderly mother in a different country.
She's forever calling me and wasting her money on telephone bills.

Unfortunately the Show 5 doesn't come with a manual, so I'm not sure how to set up a Show 5 to video call another Show 5.

Would anyone please know if I can find a step by step guide online anywhere?

Appreciate any advice you can give me.

Echo Technical Support / Re: Amended routine not propagating
« Last post by billbudd on October 10, 2019, 03:38:49 am »
Hi,  I had a routine which was working as I required.  I made some changes (added an additional action and removed one action).  The changes are not being propagated to the Echo, i.e. the routine is triggered and runs but using the actions before I changed them.

I have re-booted (power cycled) the echo, no improvement.

Any suggestions welcome.

Bill

 Be sure to hit NEXT after you make the changes otherwise they dont take effect. I did that a few times before I realized.

Thanks for that.  Tried that but has made no difference.  I have even deleted the whole routine now but it still keeps running!

weird or what.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Nonstop blue light spinning on all 4 dots!

I’ve seen the posts to alleviate the issue with one. But this is happening on four. I’ve unplugged all. Tried different cables. Etc. etc. but they all return.

Help would be wildly appreciated.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Echo Studio and Airplay
« Last post by LarMorgan on October 09, 2019, 05:30:54 pm »
I have been hoping that the new Echo Studio will support streaming via airplay 2. I found one site that indicated it might, but have yet to see a firm confirmation. If so, I will be ordering several studios, but without it, will stick with the sonos speakers I have. Anybody got some info on whether the Studio will have this feature? Thanks.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Amazon Plug - Good deal through the 12th
« Last post by jwlv on October 08, 2019, 03:06:11 pm »
Not bad! I also see they have the Echo Show (1st gen) for $49.99. I have two of these that I bought for $200 when they first came out. At this price I'm considering switching out my original Echoes (1st gen) with these.

And for those who were looking for the Echo Voice Remote, it's on Woot for $4.99.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Amazon Plug - Good deal through the 12th
« Last post by scottrods on October 08, 2019, 08:32:21 am »
Amazon owns a little company called Woot.com where they often sell their Amazon marked products fro really good discounted prices... some open goods, some new. Right now they have the Amazon Plug for 8.99, and the 3rd ten Dot for half price as well... refurb or rectified on the dots, Used-very good condition on the plugs... I just bought a plug last weekend for 24.99... so the price they have is really a good deal and mostly the things sit under or behind stuff and appearance is no issue... Good deals - just sayin'...
