I feel your pain. I'm still at the "Retry" prompt too.
I finally had to uninstall my box and reinstall with a new code. It now works. Time to explore whether this is useful. Seems limited now, but no reason functionality can’t be expanded.
Brief mode has not been rolled out to all devices yet.
When I went to get the activation code from the tivo, it locked up and eventually rebooted. Will try again
Roamio Plus with TE3
Perhaps, but it is active on all mine.
I got it installed and got a couple of commands to work. Is there a reasonably comprehensive list of commands that work published anywhere? I tried to get the guide to scroll with no luck and don't really feel like randomly trying stuff. I'll get frustrated and keep using the remote.
According to the Tivo, it linked to my Bolt + fine, but it doesn't seem to actually work. I wonder if the Harmony skill is getting in the way. I hope not, because I won't give that app up for Tivo.
I finally bit the bullet and re-booted Tivo. After that I got the activation code 1st time I tried!!
As you'll see, the available commands are pretty limited as yet.
Won't work for me. The Alexa app says devices are linked but when I try giving voice commands Alexa either replies that she can't find any linked devices or had a problem communicating with Tivo.
I spent an hour on the phone with a very patient Tivo tech support rep who had me unplug/reboot my Tivo box twice and re-pair it with Alexa at least 5 times. She finally gave up and told me she escalated the case and someone would email me when it's fixed. That sound you hear is me passing out while I hold my breath.
My remote works fine. It does what I want it to do instantly and doesn't talk back to me
Playing around with Alexa / Tivo I can't get Channel NAMES (e.g. TBS) to work but substituting my fav Channel NUMBER (e.g. 720) works fine. Also, seems the word CHANNEL is optional.
Alexa, Watch <Channel> 737
Also, if I have several tuners capturing programs I like I can use the SWITCH command to GO to a different turner without re-locating the current turner.
Alexa, Switch to <Channel> 720
Also, some commands that Alexa uses elsewhere need the word TIVO to operate. For example, 'Alexa, Rewind Tivo'.
I finally tried a Tivo reboot too, still getting the same retry message, and no code.

I set Alexa up today and it works good. I am a good one to set the remote down and this added feature sure does help.
I have one Roamio that's controlled by two Minis. What would be the setup procedure for this? Would I need to set it up for each Mini? There's no direct video output from the Roamio itself to the TV. It's only through the Minis.
If I uncheck the box for the "coming soon" app, then I won't see when it becomes available. The app is needed to link your account to Alexa.
I got a message on my box today that Alexa support is available, but I don't have the actual linking app yet, just the "coming soon" app.
Should everyone have the Alexa app on their TiVo at this point or is it still rolling out?
I have no idea. But I am sure when things change, you will hear it first on this forum.
Does the actual app replace the coming soon app when it’s available or is it a second app that shows up?
I'm afraid I'm not the right person to ask. I'm sure you will get an answer from someone who knows.
From what I read they are rolling it out based on app updates to users so I guess all your echos get it at the same time.
