Voice commands with Echo
I have tried to set the voice commands for operating the "Remote" device for tivo and the Echo will not discover them. I do have the Echo working with other HS devices. Is this supported by your plugin?

It's probably not finding them because there isn't an On/Off functionality associated with the TiVo devices. The Echo supports On/Off but can also control some thermostats. You cannot use the echo to change the channel of the TiVo.

Bummer, I thought it might be something like that. Thanks.

If you have certain "go-to" channels that you watch often, you can use the UltraTivo3 plug in inside an event and trigger it from Echo with the "Alexa tell homeseer to run the watch HBO event". Crude but effective.
