amazon fire stick & controller
« on: May 03, 2015, 02:31:30 AM »
wonder if anyone can help - when trying to configure the Amazon controller on my TV I cant access the menu in the corner  ( the profile / deadzone / sensitivity ) sections as they appear to only work with a touch screen) any ideas?

Go to the global settings and change Accessibility to "Big screen mode".  Let me know if that doesn't resolve it.

Great stuff - but just in case anybody else is having the same issue - go to Settings / Advanced / Accessibility / and then turn on big screen mode :) thanks for your help - maybe in a future release you could choose at the beginning if its installed to tablet/touch screen or a smart tv box etc? just a thought ;)

Yes, we have an auto-detect system in place (right now it just detects OUYA) but we have not kept up with all the latest android consoles (Gamestick, Mojo, nexus player, fire tv, etc.).  It's on the todo list for version 3.
