    I have an Amazon Echo Dot that I was wondering if I could employ somehow to enable voice control of my DTV HR-54 or C61K clients.

    I can confirm the Alexa Skill for D* works very well. We use it all the time, especially for changing channels.

    Alexa, please integrate further into my life and spy on me and steal more of my personal information and habits.

    No thank you.

    Yup, you're better off posting on public forums...

    What have you done to link it?

    All I did was enable the DirecTV skill. I had to link my D* account to the skill. (It's been a while, so I don't remember exactly how it walked me through that.)

    I had no idea you could do that. I do have Cubes on every 4K set
    I had no idea we could use Echo devices to control the DVRs. Now I'm trying to figure out if I want to try it.

    There's no microphone on this site. It doesn't listen to everything I say. There's just mods.
