This skill allows to use the Android App Smart Remote as smart home device and allow to control your cinema with your voice.<br/><br/>In contrast to the Smart TV Remote basic skill you don't need to say the skill name before starting a command.<br/>Thus, the basic commands are now shorter and it feels more natural to control your home cinema. Just say, "Alexa, turn on my TV" to turn everything on.<br/>You can easily combine both, basic and pro skill, and combine short all commands to get the best results.<br/><br/>By supporting the newest Smart Home Skill version, you can easily switch channels by using the channel name.<br/>Simply define a channel in the app and tell Alexa to switch to this channel on your TV.<br/><br/>How does it work?<br/><br/>First of all you need the same named app Smart TV Remote on your compatible Android phone.<br/>You can find the Smart TV Remote app here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.adi.remote.phone<br/>Install and setup this app in order to control your TV. You can find more information in the app description if your phone/TV is compatible and how to do that.<br/><br/>After that you need just to connect both, Amazon Echo and the app. Therefore you have to do:<br/><br/>1. Enable this skill in the Alexa app<br/>2. Login to Amazon with your Amazon credentials and scan for new devices. Now a new smart home device should appear in your list.<br/>3.

Let Alexa again search for new smart device by saying "Alexa, search for new devices". Alexa will not find a new device, since it already found it in step 2, but it doesn't matter.<br/>6. During the search the app screen will update once a connection is established.<br/>7. That's all, now Alexa controls your app and you can control your TV by voice.<br/><br/>You can disable the skill control feature without removing the connection between App and Amazon Echo by deselecting Voice Assistant in the app settings.<br/><br/>Here is a list with available commands:<br/><br/>"Alexa, turn on TV"<br/>"Alexa, turn off TV"<br/><br/>"Alexa, turn down volume on TV"<br/>"Alexa, turn up volume on TV"<br/><br/>"Alexa, mute on TV"<br/>"Alexa, unmute on TV"<br/><br/>"Alexa, change channel to 200 on TV"<br/>"Alexa, change channel to XXX on TV" (to switch channels via channel name, ensure that you have created a channel with the same channel name in the app)<br/><br/>"Alexa, fast forward on TV"<br/>"Alexa, rewind on TV"<br/>"Alexa, pause TV"<br/>"Alexa, resume TV"<br/>"Alexa, play on TV"<br/>"Alexa, rewind on TV"<br/>"Alexa, stop on TV"<br/><br/>If something is not working, feel free to contact me via mail.<br/>Have fun with the app and this skill.
