Yes, I have my Cube in my living room hooked up to my TV there. In my bedroom at the other end of my house I have an Echo dot.

See people tend to get things a little confused when it comes to Alexa and the devices it works with. The Cube and other Alexa devices are just listening posts but those listening posts are all tied together in the Alexa app, so when you give a command to any one of them they can turn on anything that's hooked into the Alexa/Echo network, even when the Echo device you give the command to is not the one connected to the device you are trying to turn on with that command. see less Yes, I have my Cube in my living room hooked up to my TV there.

Answer:
I'm late, but thought I chime in. You'll never get over 500 mbps of Ethernet speed into a USB port for connection on any device. USB port won't allow over that amount. Speeds above 500 will need a straight Ethernet through Ethernet connection. Amazon always gives you the 10/100 adapter, but you can get a third party on… see more I'm late, but thought I chime in. You'll never get over 500 mbps of Ethernet speed into a USB port for connection on any device. USB port won't allow over that amount. Speeds above 500 will need a straight Ethernet through Ethernet connection. Amazon always gives you the 10/100 adapter, but you can get a third party one that will give you 10/100/1000. For instance UGREEN adapters can give you 10/100/1000, and you can plug that into the Cube. This will also show you that you'll only get about 500 or so speed when you do a speed test (even if you have 1GB speed) because the connection is still through that USB port.

My opnion though...
You only need 150 - 200 mbps for pretty decent streaming, especially if your hardwired into your router ( I am, and throughout my house )
Consistent speed on your bandwith gets rid of the buffering...not really more speed. Some wifi signals are up and down due to interference...changing the speed...and creating buffering while streaming. see less

It has connection issues with my Ring camera as do all FireTVs, I have the 1st generation Fire TV, the 2nd generation FireStick, te 4k FIreStick which is the better way to go, and the 1st generation Cube.

It has connection issues with my Ring camera as do all FireTVs, I have the 1st generation Fire TV, the 2nd generation FireStick, te 4k FIreStick which is the better way to go, and the 1st generation Cube. I know on the software now there is a mic icon to push on the screen to tlk outside. The problem is it takes too long for the camera to connect with any of the FireTV devices, I have a Show, a Spot, and a Show 5 and they connect almost instantly but the FIRETV devices often time out before they connect. It isn't my WiFi as I have a Google WiFi mesh system with solid connection anywhere inside and basically within a 300' feet outside of my place. You want to see how good these things are? I just looked and they were only offering $0.99 cents for a trade in for a Cube that cost $89 on sale when I bought it, and $5 for a second generation Dot I only paid $25. That right their alone tells you these Cubes are garbage. see less I have the first generation Cube and hate the hting.

Answer:
Check your apps and see which particular app is using all of the data. You may have gotten an app that was hijacked and is being used for other purposes. If so, delete the offending app.

Answer:
The cube will work, the content may be restricted by IP address. You can get around this by installing a VPN app on the system and choosing a server in the country you want to emulate.
