I have a toshiba smart tv. I can control it through my echo show 8 but after it has been on standby overnight Alexa cannot control it. I have to either log on to the app and rename it or unplug the tv for a few seconds and plug it back in.
It works fine if I am watching the tv and say "Alexa, tv off" and then after a few seconds "Alexa, tv on" so it seems odd that it fails after a longer time.
Does anyone know why please?
Well now I have to turn the power off for just a few seconds and then back on. It no longer works just giving it a friendly name!!
