💬 How to add External USB OTG Storage and Move Apps on the Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Stick 3, and Fire TV Cube
  1. Doug Smith says:

    Update: The CUBE now tells me when I insert the flash drive that I can browse the drive, but when I press the OK dialog, nothing happens. When I disconnect the flash drive it tells me thst it has been disconnected. The drive is empty as it has just been formatted. The MY FIRE TV STATUS says "no USB drive found" or nonsense in other words. I can not "see" the drive in any form on the CUBE.

  1. Doug Smith says:

    USB (useless Stuff beware) I have a Samsung qled TV (brand new) which has USB ports as well as the usual HDMI ports. I have connected a flash drive and the CUBE does not see it. It is 230G and formatted to eFAT32 which is the only format besides NTFS that WIN10PRO will allow. I have never seen the "e" as part of FAT32, so I don't know if that is the problem?

    Ah. The $24.99 is for Prime Members only. If you're a member it might work otherwise go online and join first.

    You can get the new Echo Dot with clock for $34.99. It's only $34.99 when you order with Alexa. Just say, “Alexa, order a Blue Echo Dot with Clock.“
    Thanks, yes I'm aware of this BUT Amazon has given me other credits that can ONLY be used on the actual Prime Days. The point is I made previous purchases based on getting those credits. If I make the purchase today as you mentioned I can't use those credits. If Amazon removes that Alexa order special or raises prices tomorrow the credits are essentially worthless. It would be nice to have insider information to know when to purchase for maximum savings.

💬 Amazon finally lets you hide its preinstalled apps on Fire TVs
  1. TechyChris says:

    It should be illegal for devices to have " apps " that you cannot remove, from a device that you purchased.. it's B.S.
    This has been an ethical debate since the dawn of streaming but the reality is you are purchasing the hardware and have no rights or ownership of the software installed on the device. I don't like it either but it is a fact and would take the implementation of new consumer protection laws to change the status quo. I don't see that happening any time soon.

    Elias will you be doing a final round up of all the deals just before the start of Prime Day "Official" tomorrow? I am getting tons of emails and notifications from Amazon to "Buy Now" BEFORE Prime Day and I'm wondering if the deals will be better tomorrow. In particular I need a new Echo but I specifically want the one with the clock (which is not listed as on sale) AND I want the 6 month's Amazon Music Unlimited deal. Everyday Amazon changes things, the Unlimited goes from 1 free month to 6 free now back to 4...what gives?

  1. cindy says:

    I have the 2118 update on my Firestick. Since doing the update last month, it takes three times and about 10 minutes, for Peacock to finally open. Then it usually plays for a few minutes then throws back to the FireTV main menu. Did I miss an update? Anyone else have this issue? Thankfully, Peacock is now on Samsung TVs so it works on one TV, but thinking I need to get a new device, like a Roku. Do all Rokus work with PeacockTV?

💬 How to stream Dolby Atmos surround sound on Amazon Fire TV devices
  1. Bubba says:

    OK.Another matter then:I have a 2nd Generation Fire TV.A few days after I received the new Update ( 5.2.6.6 Build 617513120 ) , the "Apps" Section reverts to the Home Screen.By that I mean that when I scroll over from: Home - Your Videos - Movies - TV Shows - Apps - Settings ... scrolling upon the "Apps" section automatically reverts me to the Home Screen.It seems to me, that is the same manner as if I were to press the " House / Home" button on the remote. Obviously I do not.Mind you that this new update installed automatically on August 31st for me. And this issue appeared on September 3rd. Before then, everything worked as it should.Also, besides this App section issue, my 2nd Gen FTV works great.This App Section issue literally appeared overnight. I do not know whether is it a backend issue, or a true Bug that crept up.I have tried rebooting to no avail. As well as other things I have read that might have helped. They did not.I ask if you have any contacts at Amazon please relay my message to them. I would greatly appreciate it.Thank You.
    I have the old fire stick 4k. Takes getting used to, to find the Atmos compatible movies. I generally use the Sonos app to tell me what format the audio is in. Some Disney shows work on Disney + and some amazon shows. If you want to find the amazon shows you can search adobe Atmos and they got a filter that will bring it up. I hope this answers your question. The stick is updated to the new software update.

💬 How to stream Dolby Atmos surround sound on Amazon Fire TV devices
  1. Bubba says:

    Anyone ever found a reason why Amazon makes it so complicated to find the UHD Versions? You could think they don't want us to stream it. In the recommendations you always find the FullHD Versions of a series, the search normally also only replies the FullHD Versions. It always annoyed me, that's why this time i complained about to to the PrimeVideo Twitter Account. They even replied, that they will forward the complain. I unfortunately don't think anything will happen, but it wouldn't hurt if more people comlain about this bullsh*t
    Just search Atmos and it will come up with all Atmos amazon movies.

💬 Peacock TV update is having audio and commercial ad issues on Fire TV devices
  1. Andrew says:

    I too sideloaded Peacock. When the app opens it reads "Update required" then you get "this app is trying to open a link with an external market that is not available on this device. Would you like to open this link with the Amazon Appstore instead?" You get continue or cancel. Continue takes you to "The app you are looking for could not be found" In short the sideloading doesn't seem to be the answer.
