Using Alexa with Ignite TV

I would like to use my Ignite TV with Alexa from Amazon. I do not see a skill in Alexa that would permit this. How do I link my Ignite TV with Alexa so that I can use the Alexa app as an Ignite Remote to control the On/Off function of my Samsung UN55MU8000 (Connected Thru Smart Things from Samsung) as well as changing channels, searching, volume, recording and playback etc. , 

A connection from the Ignite remote to Samsung's SmartThings app might even help.

I see some users have managed a Rube Goldberg setup with limited functionality.

What are the instructions to accomplish this correctly. 

If this functionality is not available please let me know so I can stop wasting my time trying to get this to work

Greetings @bobp3008,

 

 

You've come to the right place for assistance! We’re always working on adding new features for the Ignite TV service. However, Alexa isn’t supported at this time.     

 

If anyone else in the Community has suggestions, please feel free to chime in! 

 

 

Cheers!

I had the same frustration trying to connect to my Alexa Echo (strangely Dot was ok). 

I got it to connect immediately by connecting to my WIFI repeater rather than to the Rogers directly.
