this is not true have two firetv's can only play Sirius on one TV at a timeI hadn't seen this thread before.
There is no limit I have found to how many streams of SiriusXM to Amazon devices you have. However if you stream to a mobile device (Cell, Tablet, Computer) that is the only stream you can have for that sign in. That's either using the Siriusxm app or the Alexa app. At least that's how it has worked for me over the years.
It's true Amazon/Alexa has never had the ID information. And what you describe is indeed new. I recently realized if I even open the SiriusXM app it stops the stream to my Alexa device(s). Since we have three radio's with a subscription to online streaming I made the Amazon account a different sign in than for any other devices. Since doing that I found far less times of SiriusXM stopping for no apparent reason over Alexa. And we have more flexibility in multiple people streaming.

Well, then I don't understand why SiriusXM does this. I think one observer above speculated that you could have only 1 mobile device streaming at a time, but unlimited stationary devices such as all the Echoes in the house. But as you found out, other stuff that is stationary (such as your FireTV or my desktop PC) kills the stream(s) on my Echoes. I have observed that, when I examine what song is playing on my PC, even if I don't hit the "play" button in player.siriusxm.com, the stream to my Echo stereo Dots + Sub go to noise, after which time Alexa tells me "something went wrong". If I close the SiriusXM page quickly enough, other Echoes continue playing. So I have no idea what SiriusXM is doing. But it sure is annoying that I can't ask "Alexa, what song are you playing", and get anything more detailed than the channel name. This sucks.i am talking about a TV not the stick an actually TV
I don't, but I can't help but think a Roku TV doesn't look a lot like a Roku device or that a Sony TV with Android TV looks a lot like a nVidia Shield.They might be able to. Do you know for a fact that they can't?
So why ask questions about something that you don't even know the answers? It only muddies the waters.I don't, but I can't help but think a Roku TV doesn't look a lot like a Roku device or that a Sony TV with Android TV looks a lot like a nVidia Shield.
For its part, a web browser details what it is running on pretty completely and an Echo device probably doesn't make a move without going through Amazon.
Cool! My favorite Mr. Mister song is playing right now. But if I ask Alexa (via my stereo pair of Dots/sub) what is playing, she merely answers "Fun Tower Radio" and not "Broken Wings". That is what I want her to do when I play my favorite SiriusXM channel. Are you saying that this works correctly from an Echo Show?Try saying "Alexa Play Fun Tower Radio" and you will see what I mean.
