RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - TheBuz - 2018-09-30

Has the skill changed over the past few days? It doesn't respond to Kodi any more i have to say "Unofficial Kodi" ? It doesn't aways pick up the command if i don't use skill name.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - jeffds77 - 2018-10-01

Thank you for the add,

When I try to link Kodi instance to Alexa devices in the Alexa skill setup, it doesn't link. I have several devices, and none of them will link.

Alexa Account is set to US, I did disable and enabled several times. The instance is showing in smart home and when I try to link. After I check the connected devise and connect, the list of connected devices is empty.

Has anyone ever had this issue?

Thank you......

Can you describe how it didn't work?


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - dsmuk - 2018-10-04

Having the same issue.

It discovers the device
Press continue
Get a list of Alexa devices
Select the one i would like it to use
Press link devices

Get a message saying 

There are currently no linked devices.

Also a button to link a deice to start the process again.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - bigjpayne90 - 2018-10-05

Got an automated email stating that "Beta test has ended for the Alexa skill"

What do we need to do to keep this running?

Thanks!!


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - melons2 - 2018-10-06

It will not successfully complete the new beta setup: I keep getting:
"Your linked devices,
There are currently no linked devices."

What should I do?

Thanks

If Kodi is not running and successfully connected to Kodi Connect then Alexa cannot find the device.  I just updated to the new beta "Unofficial Kodi" and was able to link my devices.
