re: Amazon echo/alexa questions - DoubleDown
[quote]junkfunky[/quote] Yea, I think the easiest thing for me to do is simply connect my UE Megaboom speaker to the Amazon Dot. It will amplify the music and sound but still just be 1 speaker. Consider it a ghetto rigged better Amazon Echo!? Would love to get music from the Amazon Dot to play...

re: Amazon echo/alexa questions - DoubleDown
[quote]Dont have an echo but i dont know that it has a 3.5mm jack. You would probably need the dot. No clue about the other questions either.[/quote] Dope, my fault. I meant the Dot but said Echo. Yea, the dot since it has a 3.5mm output....

re: Amazon echo/alexa questions - DoubleDown
Asking a side question about the Echo (rather than start a new thread). I have a 7.1 audio system with a receiver. The receiver has a 3.5 mm input jack but is not bluetooth compatible. Q: If I plug the Amazon Echo into the 3.5mm jack of the receiver and leave it there, how will those 2 devices ...

re: Sonos Question - DoubleDown
[quote]I could be wrong, but I don't even think that is required anymore. I never had one (always had a Connect hardwired to my router) but they updated the software a year or so ago to support wireless better.[/quote] Well, I'll be a monkey's ass. I could get rid of that thing and have 1 less thi...

re: Amazon echo/alexa questions - DoubleDown
[quote] My understanding is that while the Harmony remote broadcast in RF the signals coming from the hub are being blasted by IR. If the Cox box cannot receive and IR signal from the hub how will it work?[/quote] I think it also comes with an RF blaster right?...

re: Amazon echo/alexa questions - DoubleDown
[quote]The issue with cox appears to be the remote is rf only.[/quote] Yes but with the Hub this shouldn't matter. The hub will run and execute the activities and therefore RF shouldn't matter. Without seeing it in person, it's gonna be kinda hard for us to pinpoint but it sounds like somethi...

re: Stick with UVerse or move to Cox Internet? - DoubleDown
[quote]You'll get better results if you buy individual units. And if the router has problems or goes out, it's cheaper to replace the units individually than to buy another combo unit.[/quote] Any recommendations? ETA: I currently have an Apple Time Capsule that we use as our main router but we ...

re: Stick with UVerse or move to Cox Internet? - DoubleDown
They may even waive the installation fee. Chatting with them currently. I pay for 45 mb/s with ATT and I get that constantly. Does Cox service at 100 mb/s stay consistently at those speeds? Also, I have an Apple Time Capsule that can be used as a wireless router. Is that a decent one to use o...

Stick with UVerse or move to Cox Internet? - DoubleDown
Ok so I currently have ATT UVerse but debating swapping over to Cox. Anyone have any recommendations or advice on this topic. For what it's worth, I live in the New Orleans area. Current Internet (Uverse): 45 mb/s @ 67$ a month + a 7$ equipment fee because I have to use their router (until Jan...

re: Google Wifi or AirPort Extreme? - DoubleDown
[quote]No just a router but you don't want a modem/router all in one. I've had two that I got from Cox and both have been awful. Get a Motorola surfboard 6141 modem and a good router.[/quote] Which leads me to a related question. How come I must use ATT's router when using ATT UVerse internet? I ...
