    I'm experiencing a similar situation.

    I'm able to issue basic commands (play/pause, clear play queue, skip, etc) with Alexa but I can't for the life of me start a playlist or favorite with Alexa.  I'm in the US so my Echo device is already set to English US.

    Initially, I was unable to get most of my albums playing from my library via the "play {album} by {artist}" command but got that working after butchering the album tags on the troublesome albums to match what was recorded in Alexa's history.

    So far support's only response is to tell me to use presets which don't scale well (I'll run out of presets before albums) and never mind trying to remember which album I assigned to each preset.  Both of which are beside the point anyway since playlist control via Alexa is an advertised feature and simply doesn't work.

    When I do attempt to start a playlist with Alexa, she tells me she is starting playback but nothing happens on bluesound's end or she doesn't say anything (and again nothing happens on bluesound's end).
