I’m brand-new to the world of ST, so please have mercy on me. Anyway, we recently switched from COX Cable to DirecTV. When we were with COX, we had the cool remotes that accepted voice commands.
So I would press down on the ‘voice button’ and then say ‘Nick Jr.’ for example, and the remote would automatically change the channel to Nick Jr. and so on.
I was looking to find something that would mimic this feature with DirecTV and then some.
I then found what I was looking for. 2 very similar solutions (in fact, I’m trying to find out exactly if there is any difference between the two of them).
In short, if you own an Amazon Alexa device, you can create what is known as a ‘Custom Skill’ in order to obtain this sort of functionality.
Here’s Option #1 Demo:
Here’s Option #1 Tutorial:
Here’s Option #2 Demo:
Here’s Option #2 Tutorial
Both options are almost identical, except that I noticed that Option # 2’s JSON has more TV Channels listed in it.
I searched throughout this community and the closest project that I found was this:
Even at that, the creator ‘JoeBee’ it seems hasn’t even been active on the ST Community Forums since December 2016. So I don’t know if he has abandoned his project or moved onto other things.
Anyway, I’m curious if there is a way to reproduce or recreate this within ST? Any ideas?
