The harmony skill leaves a lot to be desired. It's unintuitive, and really I only use it to turn on my projector. I have both a television and a projector added as devices for my Harmony hub, and for whatever reason "Alexa, turn on my projector" works exactly the same as "Alexa, turn on my TV" - meaning both commands result in my projector firing up. "Alexa, ask Harmony to tune to channel 9", is a long, cumbersome sentence - especially when Alexa didn't hear me right the first time. IFTTT integration does work, but it could be so much, much better. Native X1 support without going through IFTTT would be much better. Harmony Hub would not be needed, as X1 equipment can accept network commands through Comcast's network. I know this because the X1 remote app works without IFTTT. IMO, this will definitely happen. Hopefully sooner, rather than later.
