The Amazon Fire TV Cube is currently receiving a new software update. The updated carries version number 188.8.131.52 and a build value of NS6224/1260. According to the update message (seen above) that appears after the update installs, this update adds the ability to disable automatic volume leveling, as well as a new way for the Fire TV Cube’s universal remote capabilities to scroll through inputs on televisions that don’t support direct input switching.
The focus of this latest Fire TV Cube update seems to be to add additional advanced options for how the device manages audio output volume levels, as well as some new options for advanced equipment control settings. There’s more to this update than the update message informs users about, so I’ll be diving into the volume and equipment control changes in separate posts shortly.
This update also brings the new manual proxy options that were recently added to the Amazon Fire TV 3 (pendant) to the Fire TV Cube. Unfortunately, this update does not yet add frame rate matching to the Fire TV Cube. That feature is still only available on the Fire TV 3.
The new volume options and new equipment control options, which I’ll be posting more details about momentarily, as well as the developer proxy settings, seem to be the only changes brought on by this latest updated. Be sure to comment below if you notice any other features or improvements.
