So I changed the invocation name to "media center" and it's working MUCH better now. Not perfect, but still way better than using "cody."
for the invocation name was an early suggestion that doesn't work well any more. I am guessing people are still using it because other guides still suggest it.
However, I personally use kodi
and it works perfectly fine for me; at least, it did before I left for vacation.

I know it seems like it wouldn't actually do anything, but it really does.

Roman numerals should work fine; however, if the movie in your library contains a subtitle, you will need to speak at least some of the title for it to fuzzy match.
For example, if you have in your library a movie titled, "Star Wars IV: A New Hope", and you request, "Star Wars IV," it's not likely to match. If you say "Star Wars A New Hope" or "Star Wars IV New Hope" etc, that should work.

Try: "watch the movie Back to the Future"
And, again, reward her when she gets it right, at least for a little bit.
