  1. I had read about being able to use an Echo Dot as a Bluetooth speaker, but never tried it. I was in need of a chairside TV speaker for a senior and decided to try it with my TV as a test. It worked great, but then I remembered that Echo Dots could be made into a stereo pair. I was able to do that, but couldn't find a way for the TV to see them as a pair through Bluetooth. So then I tried my Fire TV Cube and it was able to see then as I pair, after I created that device in the Alexa app. I was wondering if others have tried that? It makes a nice, low cost stereo system and you could pair better echo devices Here are the steps I took to implement this · Use the Alexa app on your phone o Click “Devices” o Click “+” o Click “Setup Audio System” o Click “Home Theater” § (Connects speakers to a Fire TV) o Click on your Fire TV o Click “Next” o Select your speakers (Echo Devices) and click “Next” o Chose your Left and Right channel speakers and click “Next” o Pick a name for your audio system and click “Next o Add it to a group… suggest the room the speakers are in… click “Next” o ON your TV § Click “Play Preview” to experience the great sound o Note the statement “Your Fire TV remote will system volume”, not your TV remote § Also note that EITHER Echo device will control the volume for BOTH speakers o If you go into settings, you can adjust any “lip sync delay” o Click Done o If you later want to remove this setup, use the Alexa App on your phone… nothing to do on your Fire TV § Click Devices § Scroll down past all the “room groups” to “Speaker Groups”
  2. I actually like the built-in clock. I'm using it next to the kitchen sink with the medication reminder light. Although it can also display the outside temperature, it only does when speaking a response to an temperature check... I wish it would toggle between time & temp with a user selectable frequency
