Now that Dish has Google Home integration, I have been playing with it but have had nothing but problems. Hoping others here have tried and can share success stories.

So far I can turn the TV on and "show dvr" but most things work sporatic at best. I have a Hopper and 3 joeys, and whenever I say "OK Google, watch (name), it randomly plays on one of the 4 tv's. I have tried saying "on the hopper" or "on Dish" but there is no ryhme or reason as to which TV it plays on.

Also, I can show the DVR, but I can't seem to then have it show me a show details or episode list. If I say watch a show, it will play the most recent episode, not the oldest.

Anyone have better luck than me?

I have Alexa and it has been on Dish longer than Google and still doesn't work any better. I quit and went back to my Harmoney 650, one button push.
