The Logitech Harmony Hub was mentioned earlier in the thread and may be the only way at the moment. It does require a hardware hub setting up with Alexa that controls the TV via IR commands as per your TV handset rather than any direct integration with the TV software.

Okay thanks - Iíll check that out. Hopefully Sony will bring out an update soon to all other Android smart TVs and not just some.

Has anyone connected their Echo to their Fire tv?

I have just bought at Fire tv (2nd gen) and can't seem to link the two to be able to command Echo to control the Fire.

Not tried that but I have controlled it from the Fire TV app on an iPad. If I get some time later I will look at the Echo control. Are you sure it's actually live over here? I know originally it was released in the US first, like most things.

I tried it and I can't connect either. I found the instructions via Google but realised that I was on the US site. The UK site has the section in it's Help but it's blank. So are you sure it's live over here? - unless you are in the US?

Since I posted that I have been doing research and it appears it is not available over here, yet. As you say the US have the chance to connect the pair but we canít yet, for some reason.

I know, baffling. If the technology is there, why should it matter what side of the water we live on. Bizarre

As I understand it often the main reason for delays over here with other features has been ensuring all the associated voice commands are fully recognised by Alexa. This is not just the words but syntax etc. and can needs it's own libraries etc.. With Fire TV I would think the basic commands are already there because of other skills and the fact that you can already control it by the Fire TV app, so bit bemused as to why it's delayed. not seen any dates mentioned either.

Seems plausible BUT you already command with the remote that uses Alexa. So in this case it can't be that.

Itís very strange chaps. Letís hope they get their arses into gear and sort it soon.

Also, what WiFi plugs are everyone using with their Alexas?
I currently have a couple of Hs100 TP Link plugs but for £25 a pop they seem very expensive, especially when I need another three more.
Anyone recommend another plug that works choice are cheaper?

I'm using TP links as well as they work !!! However just to annoy you I dont think I have ever paid more than £15 for mine. Argos, Amazon Black Friday, Sainsburys all have had deals. If I see then cheap I pick them up as I will always find a use for one. Best deal was Argos 2 for £15.99 :-)

Bloody hell, that's a cracking deal. Last time I paid £16 each through Amazon but that was on Prime day. If you see them, can you let us know on here please.

TP Link for me too. They really have worked very well. as Andy says - would appreciate a nod if anyone spots good prices on them as I would definitely buy more but not at full price. Will do the same obviously..
