Plex Skill for Alexa (Fire TV)
I have the most recent PMS (184.108.40.20685-b46e0ea) and Plex for Fire TV (220.127.116.11). I am experiencing a few issues, and wonder how to correct.
This has been an issue for some time, and not limited to Alexa. At some point, the ability to rename the Fire TV in the Plex app was removed. I have two Fire TVs (one upstairs and one downstairs). Via Amazon, I have renamed these "Fire TV - Upstairs" and "Fire TV - Downstairs". In the Plex ecosystem, however, these are seen as "Fire TV and Fire TV" or "My AFTB and My AFTB". There is no way to change the name, or tell them apart. It was already impossible to fling content to one of these devices. Now, it's impossible to setup one of the Fire TVs as the default player for Alexa's Plex Skill. It gives me a list of my players to choose from (wherein I should pick the number), but my choices are...
1) Fire TV
2) Fire TV
3) Drew's iPad mini
4) Plex Web (Safari)
The support doc indicated "Note: The Amazon Fire TV's default player name is Fire TV." This implies it can be changed, but where?
It's not playing the media I ask it to. I have confirmed that Alexa is hearing me properly, but it doesn't play the right thing. Sometimes it does not work. For example.
"Tell Plex, Play Goonies"
It pull's up Pixar's Planes, and begins to play it.
"Tell Plex, Play The Goonies"
It pull's up The Boxtrolls, and begins to play it.
Sometimes is does work:
"Tell Plex, Play The Magnificent Seven"
It pull's up The Magnificent Seven, and begins to play it.
