Incidentally (and unrelated), has anyone figured out how to use the Amazon Echo as a speaker paired to a Roku TV?  I can't seem to find information on that anywhere.  Thanks!

Follow the instructions from Roku Skill page to DISCOVER any of your Roku devices from the Alexa app and then you can pair any of your Echo speakers to a specific Roku device. The notes on Roku Skill page says only one (1) Roku device, but I have three (3) Roku TV's set up and paired to three (3) different Echo speakers working just fine. Trick is to Enable the Skill, Discover a Roku Device and Pair it to a Echo speaker and then Disable the skill.Enable it again to pair a second Roku Device to another Echo speaker. Did this three times and got all three linked and working.

Sorry. No. I missed the pairing as speaker part of your question. I thought you were trying to get your Echo paired for voice control. Don't think that is possible with an Echo device.
