re: Amazon echo/alexa questions - LSU5508
After a long day of playing with numerous settings and dealing with the Cox box I was finally able to get everything to work. I must say the alexa integration is quite nice. Although much of what Alexa can do will probably never be used (I don't think)it is nice to be able to say turn on ESPN and i...

re: Amazon echo/alexa questions - LSU5508
Anyone want to try to convince me that the harmony hub is a life changing device? After owning one for about 3 hours it's already boxed up to be returned. My issues are: 1 it apparently does not work with newer cox countour boxes and won't learn the commands. 2. It takes forever for the hub to c...
