    Anyone else notice several channels on Playstation Vue streaming out of sync lately? Sound plays about a half second before the video. I watch a lot of news, and it’s been driving me crazy on Fox News Channel. CNN seems unaffected, and some channels are worse than others. Rebooting the Fire TV seems to help temporarily, but not completely solve the problem. I’ve reported this on the Amazon Fire Facebook page and gotten no answer. Playstation Vue doesn’t have its own Facebook page, so not really sure where to turn? Thanks.

      Reddit is one of the greatest sources for information on countless subjects. Try looking for the issue here, if not found, post a question.

        Thanks for that link. I see several other people are noticing a sync issue since the last software update. Nobody has a solution other than wait for the next software update and hope that won’t break something else.

    Recently on my rooted FTV2 box, the apps section near the bottom of the Amazon front page screen has stopped opening or working. Do you think one of my sideloaded apps has caused this behavior?

    I’m on prerooted 5.0.5, And suspecting one of following apps may have caused this:
    firestarter 3.2.2, clean master,es task manager,and advanced task manager.
    Any idea if my task manager may have stopped the system app for apps menu from loading up?

    (I’ve been living without it since I use firestarter)

    I am unable to install on the OS5 setup on both my AFTV1/2 whereas the other 2 apk’s install fine.Has been reported by other members as well in your post.

    Is there a compatible version of this apk available ? This is needed for customizing the wallpaper on third party android launchers.

    Having audio/video sync problems with CBS News app (CBSN) on Fire TV 2 box. At first, the video and audio seem to be in sync but the longer it plays, gradually they get out of sync. It seems to vary, sometimes taking only a few minutes to get out of sync while at other times taking an hour or so before before it’s noticable. But, it always happens.

    To add to the mystery, the app works flawlessly on my Fire TV Stick. No sync problems regardless of how long the stream plays.

    Also, I just received another Fire TV 2 box from Prime day. I connected this never before used Fire TV to my television and loaded only the CBS News app. It has the same sync issues as my other Fire TV 2 box. So, even a new, pristine Fire box that has never had anything besides the CBS News app on it still has the problem. Given that, it doesn’t seem likely to be an issue/conflict with something else loaded on my other Fire TV box.

    Any ideas on what might be happening? Anyone else experiencing this?

    Hey AFTVnews, I would like to ask… Do you think we will ever see a cold boot option that will give us instant access to some custom firmware or a selected app like Kodi on start-up? I am currently running the latest pre modded fire tv firmware.

    kind regards,

    What are some features in hardware or software you would like in the possible updated AFTV 3 or Stick?
    I hope your feeling better. Thank you.

    Thanks for that review of the 1byone bluetooth keyboard. Rather than just evaluate its suitability as a remote replacement, I’d really like to see a review that looks at how well the various keyboards function with sideloaded web browsers and other productivity apps on the Fire TV. Cut, copy, paste, and especially drag and drop are tricky to implement on keyboards that include trackpads. How does the 1byone function with those commands?

    Could you get this thesis bound by tomorrow? Does ‘by tomorrow’ mean ‘early in the morning’, ‘at the end of the day’ or ‘anytime tomorrow’?
