[Fire TV] - Instructions for manually installing the HDHomeRun app

Postby NedS » Sat Feb 23, 2019 8:34 pm

EDIT: Our app is back on the Amazon app store. Please use the app store version from here on out.

Amazon has temporarily removed the HDHomeRun app from their Amazon App Store. We are working to correct the removal with Amazon. Existing installs of the HDHomeRun app will continue to work.

Fire devices still allow for "sideloading", a form of manual app installation, for people who need to install the HDHomeRun app before it is restored to the Amazon App Store. If you have not sideloaded an app before, please follow a guide such as this one:

So is this Amazon's response to the issues we have had with using the app on the Fire TV and Firesticks?

Tiny URL is dead. Instructions seem old.

URL is working for me. Instructions are 100% updated, as far as I can tell.

You type the URL into the Downloader app. You don't need to download it to your PC. Your PC browser's default security settings seems to have an issue with the shortener service, but the link itself is fine.

Thanks so much for making this an option!! I was desperate to sideload to resolve issues on FireTV app video freezing while audio keeps playing. Latest version 20190221 resolved it.

Keep up the great work!

Now I have to figure out how to uninstall the amazon app version from all of my FireTV devices (4 of them). You can't sideload an app if the app was installed via amazon's store (gives an error).

The Downloader app is giving me a "connection lost" error consistently at 5.0MB/21.7MB using the link the original poster provided. I know I don't have the best internet connection but I wanted to check if anyone else was experiencing this issue or if I just need to try again some other time.

I tried it just now and it seems to be working. It's hard to tell if there's an issue or not, since the communication path can be very different between different internet users, so one problem might not show up for another. Let me know if it's still happening and maybe we can mirror the file in another location, to see if that helps.

I tried again on another Firestick and no dice about 2 days ago.

I tried again about 10 times just now and made incremental gains on the download but I always ended with a connection lost error. A mirror site would be great or any additional suggestions for downloading would be appreciated. Is there a process for side loading the HDHR app that might produce a better result?
