How do I activate Amazon Alexa?

When you pair your TiVo box with your Amazon Alexa device, you can put your remote aside just ask Alexa instead.  You can tell Alexa to pause, play, fast-forward, rewind, jump back 8 seconds and skip ahead 30 seconds.  You can even tell Alexa to change the channel, launch an app (like YouTube) and more!

  1. Press the TiVo button then select Apps/Alexa
  2. On the pairing screen, note the activation code and the name of your TiVo device.  You will need this information during the setup. 
  3. Open the Amazon Alexa app on your mobile device.
  4. Open the navigation menu, and select Skills & Games.
  5. In the search box enter TiVo
  6. Select TiVo from the list and follow the on-screen instructions.
