Re: Fire Stick 4k

Another update. They resolved the MPEG deinterlace issue but the fix won't come via an OTA update until by the end of Q2. I find this to be a bit ridiculous to make us wait. We've been waiting months already. They had the fix the end of January and now we have to wait until potentially June to get t...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

It seems this may finally be fixed soon. I hope so. He doesn't specify exactly what will be fixed but there is promise. So far none of mine have received the update as of today.

Re: Fire Stick 4k

It has been almost 1 month since Amazon acknowledged the issue and told me they were working on it. Hopefully the vendor provides the fix soon. This is taking quite a long time to fix.

Re: Fire Stick 4k

I was watching one of the football games yesterday on my Stick 4K and after 1-2 hours it froze like always and I had to reboot. The only way I can seem to get it to run for a reasonable length of time is to transcode to h264 via my Emby server. All 3 of mine do this. My Fire TV 2nd Gen will play it ...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

I reached out to Amazon yesterday and they haven't gotten any response yet from the developers. Hopefully after the holidays I will hear something.

Re: Fire Stick 4k

I just got off the phone with Amazon and it went pretty well. I gave them all the various results from my testing and the woman I spoke said she had a ticket from another customer with the same issue and they are gathering logs and information and have an active case open with the developers to figu...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

Amazon actually called me about my review just now. I explained everything and they're going to send an email to setup a date and time to troubleshoot. I am at work so I couldn't do anything today. Any update on this? Not yet. I asked them to call me back tomorrow night as I have been busy the past...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

In the Channels app, we have noticed an issue with the hardware decoder on the 4K Stick where it will crash after decoding video for a while. It then refuses to work at all until you reboot the device. This is a bug in the video decoder and has nothing to do with Wi-Fi or any app. Unfortunately Ama...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

I too have issues streaming my local live TV channels to the Firestick 4k. No matter which channel I choose, within an hour or so the screen goes back to the channel menu and I get a communication error. If I try to choose the same or another channel the screen goes black and the only way to connec...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

Amazon is blaming the app.

Our technical team has confirmed that the issue is with the app itself. In this case, I kindly request you to contact the developer of the app.
