    Amazon Echo - Alexa skills for Enigma2

    Hi All,

    I was wondering does anyone know of a Enigma2 skill for the Amazon echo, whereby you say "Alexa, select channel 404", "Alexa, goto BBC one" etc

    Better than that, via an ir extender my TV can control my VU+ box, so i say to my TV remote, Tune Sky sports 1 HD and it (most times) turns my VU+ box over to the correct channel.
    Obviously you need standard sky or virgin channel lists loaded.

    Now that would drive the wife up the wall if I had that set up. She thinks I'm losing it now because I talk to the remote

    I have just ordered the harmony as I'll make use of it, but I was hoping to make use of the webif controls as it would be direct. With the harmony I assume that it was have to issue a 4 0 1 command separately and take longer rather that webif which would be instant channel selection.
