Nowadays, saying Alexa, play NPR (or whatever your favorite station is) seems to work on an Echo device. However, randomly, once in a while, it wants to grab NPR from FireTV (and turn on the TV and AV system in the process)!
The only work around seems to be to ask Alexa for your local NPR station (or any) like: Alexa, play WXYZ.
What is causing this random desire for Alexa to want to launch the NPR app on FireTV Cube in the living room instead of playing it from the kitchen Echo where the command came from?
I have cross posted this to Echo area too as, it could be a problem with either.
