Alexa skill use Roku

strollinstrollin Posts: 4Members ✭✭

I have the Alexa skill enabled and it connects to my Plex server without issue and responds to commands like "What's on Deck?" without issue. However, when I tell Plex to Play some music or a movie, Alex responds with "Uh-Oh. Encountered an error." It seems that Alexa/Plex does not know which of the Rokus in my home to play the requested media on.

How do I tell Alexa/Plex which Roku to play the media on?

    Yes, I tried to include the name of the Roku in the command but still get the "Uh, oh..." message.
