Getting Amazon Cube to control WMC

#1

Has anyone been successful in getting the new Amazon Cube to control a Windows Media Center system? -- (the Amazon Echo - Cube thingy with a Fire TV built in).

It has support for various DVR/set-top boxes (like from Satellite TV or Cable companies) so you can do like "Alexa, tune to ESPN" -- and it works.

But I can't figure out how to get it to talk with my WMC. I would suspect it would be supported like a "DVR" (which it does support a bunch of them)

Anybody figured this out?

Interesting. I am wondering this as well. Is there a list anywhere of supported devices ?
