I have installed and configured Alexa Media Player and everything went well. I can see all my Echo devices and issue TTS to them no problem.
However, when trying to send ‘custom commands’ nothing happens. I set up a simple test automation with a trigger and an action via media_player.play_media and I get nothing. I can see the automation is executed, but I get nothing. I’ve tried multiple Echo devices and it’s the same.
This is the code:
alias: Alexa Command Test description: "" trigger: - device_id: 7f64e49d492bc672e7dfb931cb78fa01 domain: zha platform: device type: remote_button_short_press subtype: remote_button_short_press condition:  action: - service: media_player.play_media data: media_content_type: Custom media_content_id: What time is it? target: entity_id: media_player.michelle_s_echo_show mode: single
When I try to directly copy and paste from the Alex Media Player Wiki but change the echo to my device name, I get an error:
Message malformed: extra keys not allowed @ data[‘target’]
I’m brand new to HA and getting this working is critical to many of my automations. Thank you for the help!
