Hi
I have the HD hub but is the original one and have set up a scene in vera to open and close the blind which works as expected.  However when I discover these scenes in Alexa nothing happens. 

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I need to look at here to fix this? 

I'm really new to this and just learning as I go so really appreciated any help I can get.

If you have searched devices in the Alexa app, did you see the new scenes? Otherwise you have to relogon in Vera and before you select your controller click on the upper right pull Down menu and select manage Alexa.

I have tried both codes with scences?sceneid and shades?shadeid and get nothing. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get my powerview shades connected to my Veraplus system? i just had the hunter douglas system installed yesterday so i assume i have the new hub.

Apparently you got reply from: http://PowerviewIp/api/scenes?
If you got the reply with scenids it is supposed to ativate the scene with http://PowerviewIp/api/scenes?sceneid=12345 in you local browser.
You do not mention if this is not working in your browser or in a vera scene.

Sorry for lack of info. I'm getting a reply in my browser with the scene is but not getting any movement when putting the address with the scene I'd in my browser from the shade. All it does is pull up the same page as the http://IP/API/scenes? I don't it for both scenes?scenid and shades?/shadeid and it yields the same result.

It seems there must be a difference in setup between the V1 and V2 hub, mine is still V1 and is working for the http part of scenes.
Perhaps you can ask the hunter douglas rep for this?
