Amazon Fire TV for XBMC
Hi all, been following the thread for a while now (+1 to Koying and all testers) and got very excited about getting a FTV. Been running ATV2 since the start and original xbox before that. Time for an upgrade.

One hick-up: I'm in The Netherlands.
Solution: : a buddy of mine is going to NYC next month.

Quick question to you guys: can he pick up FTV in a store somewhere? Or is it just available through online purchase?
Best Buy has it in store.
awesome, tx!
I didn't follow the remote control subthread, could someone summarize the issues, please.
According to the amazon dev doc, it sends standard keypresses which should be handled correctly, at least in Gotham.

EDIT- Using this this version of XMBC - http://mirrors.xbmc.org/test-builds/andr...bi-v7a.apk

Here is the log for testing on and on, on and off, off and on.

Pretty low frame rates - 9-17FPS.

Looks like VC1 is not supported by the box, indeed.
Could you try with whatever default player is installed on the FTV to confirm, please.

The log uploader error is due to our log site being down, currently.

This issue i did not have with Ouya built.

not sure if its good thing to remove the ouya built yet.
The crash is constant, which means there is something this version dont like about this file. Hope someone can advice on this.
This is because you enabled HD audio, which is crashing.
Ouya 12.3.2 had not support whatsoever for this, so indeed would not crash, and neither would Gotham.

Sorry my bad. Thanks for looking into this. I take it as HD Audio is not possible using Android as of yet.
From https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/asb/faq.html#General , it appears Amazon checks if an app is sideloaded and doesn't show it on the main screen if it is.

One of the way they could do so is to check from which application the apk was installed, which would return nothing when we sideload via adb. There is a way to spoof this, though.

Could you try to re-install SPMC/xbmc with:
Code:
adb install -r -i com.amazon.venezia <apk file>
and report, please. You might need to reboot for the launcher to pick up the change.
I can use my MCE remote with XBMC/FTV, but the number keys do not work, e.g., I am not able to enter the playback time to jump to. Any advice?

In XBMC the FF and RW buttons come through as ᶉ and œ respectively. Their keycodes are 89 and 90, and their scancodes are like 108 and 206 I think (at work, can't double check).

Attempts such as:

Code:
<œ>Queue</œ>
<ᶉ>Fullscreen</ᶉ>

Code:
<key id="108">Queue</key>
<key id="206">Fullscreen</key>

Code:
<joystick name="Whatever the amazon remote was">
  <button id="89">Queue</button>
  <button id="90">Fullscreen</button>
</joystick>

Or using the key binding addon all lead to either no binding (joystick) or binding both keys to whatever function was defined last (all of the other attempts).
Could you retry with key id="339" for rewind and key id="343" for fast_forward, please.
I've got a question. There were some posts regarding 60MHz vs 50MHz refresh rate etc. I was considering ordering this box via reship and get it delivered to UK, but it got me worried. What this issue would affect? Is is for live tv only?
I admit that this is the bit I do not really understand (to clarify, I know what refresh rate is Smile just don't know what this limitation would mean for me)

Just tried it with the Gotham build and nothing. I did reboot it as well. It still only shows up under the applications section of the settings. I searched every side category for it.

The FTV doesn't come with a default player so to speak, so I gave MX player a try and got the same results. The screen was also green until skipping ahead. MX player played the monsters test well, however did not have audio.

I gave this a try but don't see it anywhere on the launcher.

Under the display settings for the FireTV it does list 1080p 50Hz and 720p 50Hz as well as 60Hz for those resolutions if that answers your questions.
