I just bought a Samsung Smart TV (RU 8000) and I connected it to my Smartthings Hub as well as my Amazon Echo. I can control the TV through Smarthings, and my echo recognizes the TV as a device. When I say “Alexa, turn on Samsung TV” the echo makes the noise as if it has completed the command, but nothing happens. I have the Samsung TV connected to my WiFi on the 2.4 network just like my echo. Any advice?
I also have a Harmony Hub that I used with my old Samsung “dumb” TV, but I was hoping I wouldn’t need to use it. I was also hoping I could say commands like “Alexa, turn on (show) on Netflix.”
Is there anything I’m doing wrong or can do to troubleshoot? Should I rename the TV or re-do the setup? It seems like everything is connected properly but none of the voice commands actually work.
