    That's unfortunate to hear. Did you save the MediaPortal log file by any chance?

    The Network-Connection from MediaPortal was working. But Amazon logs show that the account was not linked yet from MediaPortal Config?

    The correct steps to get it working are:
    1. Configure the plugin in MediaPortal and login with your Amazon account from MP Config.
    2. Run MediaPortal and keep it running for the next step - important so device discovery from Alexa will find it - think of it like a light bulb that needs power to be discovered...
    3. Activate the skill in Alexa App and let it find devices - after that you should see MediaPortal as TV in the Alexa App.

    You can tell Alexa to Find Devices again if it fails the first time.

    For testing I always Play a Movie and Say "Alexa Pause on MediaPortal".

    Ok, thanks. Following these steps it is working finally. Once I activated the Alexa Skill in Firefox it was searching for devices to connect and I saw my home list and "this device", not "MediaPortal". I selected it, and my Alexa App then shows "MediaPortal" with the TV symbol as you mentioned.
    I quickly tried following:
    "Alexa, PAUSE on MediaPortal" -> Works, playback paused (prior playback running)
    "Alexa, STOP on MediaPortal" -> Works, playback paused (prior playback running)
    "Alexa, PLAY on MediaPortal" -> Does not work "I don't know this" (prior playback paused)
    "Alexa, PLAY on MediaPortal" -> Does not work "I don't know this" (Focus on media item)

    Would be really great, if we could bring something this to MP2 aswell, MP1 is not usable for me :cry:
    Is the skill limited to these playback features or theoretically could be extended?

    Edit:
    I found at least following, so seems to offer further potential.

    The Video Skill API exposes a variety of functionality including:
    • Searching and playing content
    • Playback controls, such as pause and rewind
    • Adjusting the volume
    • Turning a video device on or off
    • Changing the video device input
    • Launching an app or GUI shortcut
    • Recording video content
    • Channel navigation
    • Video catalog ingestion

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...

    Hi, just a quick piece of information: In my server/client setup, I had one client with very annoying Live TV behavior. TV would start alright, but after some random time, it would freeze. I could restart TV most of the time by stopping and restarting it, but of course, there were some seconds lost of the running show. Today, I...

    "TV Server" can produce logs with various levels of detail. The level that has the most detail is DEBUG level, but this is not the default. So the first thing that you need to do is start "TV Server Config" and change the log level to DEBUG; see this page in the Wiki. Actually, I run my HTPC with the log level set to DEBUG all of the...

    MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
    What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...
