    Thanks Phil. I suspected that the Alexa architecture would be the limiting factor here, but can't help thinking that having the capability to notify skills of early events like this will eventually be desirable or necessary (if it isn't already). There are lots of A/V-related skills available now, all of which are creating noise and limiting Alexa's ability to listen

    Good point on muting. I hadn't considered when the player was set to fixed volume at 100%, so ducking isn't entirely straightforward. I can see how this might work, but any command runs the risk of being mis-heard, even a simple mute request.

    Setting up a pi

    Following on from my earlier posts, I decided to get a Pi to (possibly) contain music that my elderly parents can listen to by voice. After my third re-imaging of the Pi I've got that going successfully.

    I've copied ngrok onto the pi and given it my authtoken. I have got a tunnel!

    The instructions for ngrok autostart say to edit ngrok.yml in my home directory on the Pi. But I've been told elsewhere that on PiCoreplayer this directory is only in RAM and it's therefore a bad idea to use it.
    If I'm understanding correctly, what's the best way around this?

    I'm rapidly getting the headache I expected from messing with linux all day making this all work!

    Thanks

    It is a bad idea deal to put a large files (like an entire music library) in there (because it is held in memory) but it is fine to put small scripts or a configuration file in there because they do not use much memory and that directory is automatically included in the pCP backup.

    [Announce] 'MediaServer' *certified* Alexa skill for LMS

    wget then unzip it

    unzip ngrok-stable-linux-arm.zip

    Then run it!

    My recollection is that Phil has documented the steps for Linux and is same for pCP.

    There is no real install. Itĺs a single file when unpacked. Put it in /usr/local/bin when unpacked and thatĺs it. The beauty of ngrok.

    I don't think it would be put there in pCP as I expect that is a write-protected folder.
    Simple leave it in the home directory.
