    Does anyone know if you can link the Tivo to Amazon echo with alexa so that it'll work with multiple users?

    It seems you need a separate link code for each account/user?

    But not sure if it's (the Tivo skill) is multiple user/account aware.

    I don't see any support for this. This would be a terrific addition for those of us that have lots of Mini's.

    I was hoping to over come this by adding Google Assistants for the second account, but no Google assistant support yet. :(

    What I meant was:

    If you have 2 people in your Amazon account (amazon household), you have to either constantly tell "alexa switch accounts" and then tell her the Tivo command.

    Or

    go into each account and "link" the Tivo skill to that account.

    The question was:
    Does the Tivo app support you linking the Tivo skill to the multiple accounts in the Amazon Alexa app?

    I know that some apps, like Plex, support this.
    But I also know that others (well older version of Plex skill) did not.

    But I couldn't see anything in the Skill details and, unlike Plex, there's no "official" Tivo forums to ask in.
