I have the skill linked correctly, but there is a significant lag to all requests that take place after an initial request. If I haven’t ask Alexa to do anything with directv for a while, my next request will happen immediately. For example, if I tell Alexa to “tune to channel 4”, the channel will change right away. All subsequent requests take about 45 seconds to accomplish.
My software is up-to-date on all devices, I’ve cycled power to everything, and disabled and enabled the Directv skill. The issue remains.
Did you ever figure this out? A friend has the same issue and said when he replaced his Apple Airport with a different router it’s worked great. I also have an Airport and it’s doing the same thing (first time goes instantly, then consecutive commands take 30-45 seconds)
