If I tell her to tune to CNN it she tunes and reads me the name of the current show. If I tell her to tune to FOX News she just tunes the channel. No announcement of the name of the show. It is a conspiracy!
Also I noticed it kills the prompt to tune to Live TV before changing channels if you are watching delayed TV.
However, what I really want to do is to link Alexa to the Wireless Joey. I tried repeating the setup on the Joey, but under Menu->Settings, there's no Amazon Alexa icon as on the Hopper. On the Android Alexa app, after hitting "Discover Devices", I only see the main Hopper receiver available to link to.
Both Hopper w/Sling receiver & Joey have the latest software, I think--U234 & U279, respectively.
Any ideas? Is the Joey not supported? Has anyone else succeeded in linking Alexa/Echo to a Joey for Hopper w/Sling? I so want this feature to work! Thanks in advance.
At this time, the integration is only available at the Hopper.
Thanks. If Dish is reading this, please support the Joey soon. In our home, we primarily watch Dish via the Joey in our living room, and that's where our Echo is. And moving the Hopper there isn't really viable.
I followed all the instructions and when I enter the Activation Code it shows Device paired on the TV and the app on the phone shows a green check mark with a Continue button. When I click Continue it go back to the Alexa Skill app and and then says the Activation code unsuccessful. I have tried this several times and always get the Green Check Mark and Continue on the app and the Device paired on the TV, but can't continue?
