Fire TV 4K Issues

Post by Buddy »

Anyone else having some major issues using a Fire TV 4K with an HDHomeRun Extend? My streaming rate drops significantly causing a lot of stuttering/choppy video quality. I can watch TV perfectly fine on other devices (like my iPad or Android phone)...

I just noticed an update is available for Fire TV but it fails to install (says that the application is corrupted)...

Anyone else able to get the Fire TV app to work?

For some reason the latest version of the app that Amazon is pushing out is corrupted, right now to fix you must sideload the "real" app.

see viewtopic.php?f=119&t=74851

but that may not solve OP's original problem.

What you have suggested is still not working and the apk is still not getting installed on the AFTV 4K. Edit: worked only after uninstalling older version, clearing cache and rebooting the firestick and finally installing the APK.
