@flysurfer, Thanks for the info. Just to clarify, my intention is to use the Echo as a audio source to play to my Max2play, which is connected to ceiling speakers. That way I can be playing music but have the Echo interrupt with responses as necessary. It would be perfect for my home automation set up because I can add voice control but with the feeling that you are talking to your house.
Thanks. I’ll continue to follow this thread and report back if I find any solution.
