Is there a priority list to get the skill pushed to my Premier?
Haha - Alexa says “Ti-VOH, accent on the VOH. Sounds really funny. Can’t say I find voice commands useful, but good for a laugh or to impress impressionable friends.
I hear “laurel.”
FYI... Per @tiv0_Shoop on FB, they're conducting a Facebook LIVE event on Thursday (3pm EDT, May 17) to promote the Alexa integration.

Just set it up tonight and used it for a bit. It works! We particularly enjoyed telling Alexa to skip.
I thought this would just be a gimmicky toy, but I actually found it useful. I was in the kitchen and a really loud commercial came on the TV in the next room, so I said "Alexa Pause" and got peace and quiet!
I'll first put the disclaimer that anything Alexa could be amazing for someone with physical disabilities, and if this allows them to be more independent, great.
However, for everyone else, WTF? Alexa is so clunky, cumbersome, and a completely back-asswards way to do much of anything. The TiVo Peanut is far better than some voice commands. The movie Idiocracy is becoming reality!
Bolt was working fine with Echo Dot, now does not respond. How do I get it to work again? Do I have to disable and go through entire activation again?
EDIT: started working again
Alexa is here. But it doesn’t work here in Canada.

No matter what channel name I try, I still get “I couldn’t find that on Tivo”, so basically the only feature I would use doesn’t work.
TiVo forwarded me to Amazon support who came right out and said it won't work with the app. You nee a physical device. I told them the app needs to be updated to prevent TiVo setup and inform the user if there is no physical device, like and Echo, configured. They agreed, made notes, and we were done.
I can't say this skill inspires me to switch to Alexa from the Google Assistant. I'm certainly not going to buy hardware from Amazon if they can't get an Android app right.
I set it up and am underwhelmed. Tried to get it to play a show in my shows and it went to my Fire TV (which is also Alexa enabled) to the pay per episode rental choice. It is faster for me to hit the "channel up" button on my caavo than to say "Alexa, skip commercials"
I'll only use it if I am not near the remote.
Set mine up last night. Chanel selection didn't work for me, same error. On my Tivo Mini it said coming soon but we were able to set it up anyways in the Alexa app.
We watched a show, it was nice just saying Alexa skip when a commercial came on instead of finding the remote.
You would need to set the focus by using 'on TiVo' as part of your first command.
ok I'll try that
