How to remap the App Buttons on Fire TV Remotes with Remapper (Updated April 2021)

The app buttons at the bottom of the newest Fire TV Remote and Fire TV Edition remotes can either be fantastic or useless. They’re great if it’s an app that you use often, but they’re a complete waste if you don’t even have the app that they’re for installed. This guide will show you how to reassign the app buttons to open any app you want. This method uses my Remapper app and works for Netflix, HBO, Hulu, PS Vue, Disney+, CTV, Crave, DAZN, TVNOW, and other buttons. It works on the new remote paired to a Fire TV, Fire TV Cube, and Firestick, as well as Fire TV Edition devices from Element, Toshiba, Insignia, Onida, Grundig, JVC, and more.


4/16/2021: Remapper works for the new Fire TV remote, so I’ve added Disney+ to the list and updated the guide accordingly. If you run into any issues, please leave a detailed comment below.
12/9/2021: There are reports that an update has stopped the Remapper app from working on Grundig TVs running Fire OS 7. Without access to that TV, or a similar model, to test on, there is nothing I can do to try and fix the issue.

Important Limitations

  • The app for the button that you are remapping cannot be installed on your Fire TV. For example, if you want the Netflix button to open an app other than Netflix, then you cannot have Netflix installed.
  • Buttons for preinstalled apps, like Prime Video, IMDb TV, and Amazon Music, cannot be remapped. This is because there is no way to uninstall preinstalled apps and you cannot remap a button if the button’s app is installed.
  • Your PS Vue button likely cannot be remapped. If pressing the PS Vue button opens the Fire TV’s “Live” tab, then your PS Vue button cannot be remapped. Only Fire TVs running an old software version, before Amazon changed how the PlayStation Vue button worked, can remap the PS Vue button.


  1. You must have the app for the button that you want to remap in your Amazon purchase history. If you are not sure if you have ever downloaded/purchased the app, then press the app button and install the app that the button brings up.
  2. If the app for the button that you want to remap is installed, you must now uninstall it. Remapping an app button does not work if the actual app for the button is installed on your Fire TV. There is no way to remap an app button and also continue using the original app. For instructions on how to uninstall an app, follow this guide.
  3. Sideload the Remapper app below that corresponds to the app button that you want to remap. To sideload the app, use the Downloader app and enter the corresponding numeric code in the URL field. If you’ve never sideloaded or used the Downloader app, follow this detailed guide for sideloading. If you get an error that says “the package appears to be corrupt” it is because you need to first uninstall the original app for the button, as the previous step explains.

    NOTE: The Remapper app that you install is the one that matches the BUTTON on your remote that you want to remap. It is NOT the one that matches the app that you want the button to LAUNCH.

    Remapper for Netflix: 2210 (or
    Remapper for HBO: 2211 (or
    Remapper for Hulu: 2212 (or
    Remapper for PS Vue: 2213 (or *See important limitations above
    Remapper for Disney+: 2214 (or
    Remapper for Crave: 2220 (or
    Remapper for CTV: 2221 (or
    Remapper for Freeview Play: 2230 (or
    Remapper for DAZN: 2240 (or
    Remapper for TVNOW: 2241 (or
    Remapper for SonyLiv: 2250 (or
    Remapper for ZEE5: 2251 (or

    Remapper for Prime Video: Not Possible (see why above)
    Remapper for Amazon Music: Not Possible (see why above)

  4. Once the correct Remapper app is installed, launch it by pressing the corresponding app button on your remote. It may take a few seconds to launch the first time.
  5. Select the app that you want to be launched when the app button on your remote is pressed. Note that the list may contian some preinstalled system apps that are not actually launchable.
  6. Select the “EXIT” button and you’re done. The app button on your remote should now open the app that you selected in the previous step.
  7. If you ever need to change the selected app, you can rest the Remapper app by quickly pressing the corresponding remote app button repeatedly, about 5 to 10 times. Alternatively, you can also reset the Remapper app by going to Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications, selecting the Remapper app, and then selecting Clear Data. If you ever want to remove the remapping or use the app buttons actual app, simply uninstall the Remapper app.

I have no way to test my Remapper app on all possible Fire TVs and Fire TV Edition remotes. If it doesn’t work for your remote’s app buttons, please leave a detailed comment below with what you tried and what happened, so that I can try to update the Remapper app. If your remote has an app button that is not listed in step 3, please leave a comment telling me which exact Fire TV you have and which exact app button is missing. Including a link to the Fire TV and to the app listing on Amazon’s website would be helpful.

    TCL Alto 8+ 2.1 Channel Sound Bar with Built-In Subwoofer – Fire TV Edition
    It’s a Fire TV Stick 4K with Soundbar around it :)
    Remote like 5’s from left (except app buttons)
    HBO and Netflix remapped buttons don’t work :(
    I can assign needed app to Remapper for Netflix and Remapper for HBO.
    If i press app buttons on remote i see something like Amazon OOBE (Connecting to Amazon -> Successfully registered -> Do you want to use this account? -> Save Wi-Fi passwords to Amazon? ->Homescreen. I have a video, but didn’t know how to send it here/(to you).
    If i start Remapper for Netflix (or HBO) itself it run needed app.
    Thank you for all you work!

    • Thanks for the info! I’ve got one of those soundbars that I haven’t unboxed yet. I’ll work on it later today and try to get it to work.

    • Kramar, I just tried it on a TCL Alto 8+ soundbar and it worked for me for both the Netflix and the HBO button. Please try to uninstall all Remapper apps, then install both real Netflix and HBO apps, then uninstall Netflix and HBO apps, then try installing the Remapper apps again. Please let me know if this fixes anything!

      • Kramar says:

        It’s didn’t fix :)
        My Soundbar’s Stick 4K is rooted + installed Magisk Module AFTV-GAPPS-MM-v1.3. Maybe this is the reason.
        By the way, Remapper perfectly work on Insignia NS-24DF311SE21 24-inch Smart HD TV – Fire TV Edition.
        Thanks for your work!

    • Mark Carifa says:

      Hi, I have an Insignia Fire Tv. I installed the remap app for Hulu so that My DirecTV will launch with the Hulu button. However, the Hulu button doesn’t work after installation. If I launch the remap app then the DirectTv app opens. The instructions say to press the app button to launch the remap app, but this does not work. So my only option is to select the open app. I have tried to remap the Disney+ and had the same result. Please send me your suggestions.


  2. Mhl says:

    Thx for this idea and your work.
    On Grundig TV (Fire OS I tested remapper for Tvnow and Dazn. Tvnow works fine, but Dazn Button open Amazon Store to download Dazn. It seems that your App doesn’t recognize as installed Dazn app.

    • Thank you very much for the info. Please try two things for me.

      Thing 1:
      – Step 1: Uninstall Remapper for DAZN.
      – Step 2: Press the DAZN button and install the DAZN app that shows up.
      – Step 3: Uninstall the DAZN app.
      – Step 4: Install and test Remapper for DAZN.
      – Step 5: Tell me if Remmaper for DAZN now opens when you press the DAZN button

      Thing 2: If the above doesn’t work to fix Remapper for DAZN, please do the following to tell me the package name of the DAZN app
      – Step 1: Uninstall Remapper for DAZN.
      – Step 2: Press the DAZN button and install the DAZN app that shows up.
      – Step 3: Install any Remapper app except for the Remapper for DAZN.
      – Step 4: Launch that Remapper app manually
      – Step 5: Find DAZN on the list of apps and tell me the full part that is in the parentheses. It should be something like “com.dazn.something”

      • Mhl says:

        Thanks for your fast reply.
        I don’t deinstall remapper Dazn and just want to install Dazn parallel. By trying this the download and installation complete immediately and after start the previous selected app starts.
        So it seems that without first downloading fireos doesn’t recognized the app as installed, but if you want to install it (when remapper is installed) it works.

        • I’m sorry, but I don’t understand what you did exactly. Is “Remapper for DAZN” now working correctly? If so, can you please list the exact steps that made it work?

          • Sebastian says:

            I think I know what Mhl wants to say, as I had the same problem, that Dazn always redirected to the store. This was because the Dazn App was not linked with my account. After “buying” the app the remapping worked.

          • Thanks for the info Sebastian! I had a hunch that was the case, but needed someone to confirm it.

      • Adam says:

        Hello, I want to change my shortcut named Apps into disney?

        I have prime video, Netflix and prime.

        I hope somebody can help me?


  3. Rob says:

    I get a corrupt file message when trying to do this for the hbo and ps vue on my Toshiba fire TV.

    • Is it because you still have the actual HBO and PS Vue apps installed? You have to uninstall the actual app that the button you’re remapping originally opens.

      • Michael says:

        Anything for YouTube tv?

        • I’m not sure what you mean. There is no remapper for YouTube TV because there are no YouTube TV buttons on any Fire TV remotes. Remember, the Remapper app doesn’t match the app that you want to launch, it matches the button that is pressed.

          • Bill Woods says:

            I believe he is asking for the ability to Remap TO YouTubeTV –
            Which is possible. The screenshot of the targets does not show the complete list with DOES include things like YouTubeTV, Pluto and more.

            Nice Work !

  4. Robert Magiary says:

    I would love a working Hulu remapper as well as a prime video mapper. I tried the Hulu one and it said the package was corrupted. The HBO one worked great!

    • Do you have the actual Hulu app still installed? That’s usually why you get the corrupt message. You cannot install/use the Hulu Remapper app if the real Hulu app is installed. As for Prime Video, there’s no way to remap that button because there is no way to uninstall the Prime Video app.

      • Ryan says:

        Estoy en Colombia y aqui no se puede descargar Hulu, aun asi uso el remappeador de hulu y todo termina aparentemente con exito, excepto porque me sigue mandando al instalador de Hulu, donde me recuerda que no esta disponible.

  5. John says:

    Worked on my Insignia 43″ 4K HDTV for the HBO Button! So helpful. Now I need a Disney+ button to replace it in my remote itself.

  6. Scott says:

    I would like to remap my netflix button to slingtv but it doesn’t come up on the list. Is this possible on your side?

  7. M T says:

    Hulu button remapper to YouTube TV worked great. I would like to have a Disney+ button remapper if it were available.

  8. Elias says:

    I wonder if you can mimic this buttons with an attached Bluetooth keyboard. What does the remote send to the Fire TV?

  9. Nite Vibe says:

    Is it possible to remap the Live TV button on the updated Fire TV remote?

  10. Leon says:

    Disney+ Remapper doesn’t work on the newest FireTVStick (3rd Generation/German Version) with FireOS (PS7234/2039). Error message after tried to install: “App not installed.”

    I hope you can help me and thanks for your nice work.

    And it would be cool if you could find a way to change the LiveTV button and the Prime Video and Amazon Music button, but I know that it probably doesn’t work (it would be cool anyway;))

  11. Bryce Armstrong says:

    Toshiba 43” fire tv edition

    Every time I try to download Hulu or Disney + Remapper, it tells me “App not installed. The package appears to be corrupt.”

      • Alberto says:

        Hi! Thanks for your work. It’s possible remaking the TV button? It’s for a fire tv lite and I think it’s the only button possible.


    • Leon says:

      Same problem as mine. Try this:

      Try uninstalling the Remapper for Disney or Hulu app, then install the official Disney or Hulu app, launch it once, then uninstall the official Disney or Hulu app, then reinstall Remapper for Disney or Hulu.

  12. Mike says:

    Sonyliv remapper seems corrupted as I get error that file is corrupted when I download and try to install. Can you please check once?

  13. Kenneth W Collins says:

    I am interested in adding and remapping two of the buttons (Disney+ & Hulu) to apps that are not currently listed. I already subscribe to the two services listed below and watch them the most, especially when traveling.

    Dish Network (basically Dish Anywhere for Firestick)
    Motor Trend Online

    I do NOT subscribe Disney+ or Hulu and will otherwise never use those two buttons (they are useless as you put it in your article).

    I do however use Prime Video and Netflix and those buttons will be very useful.

    • Kenneth W Collins says:

      Never mind – I misread / misunderstood the instructions the first time I read through them. After re-reading and following instructions with my remote in hand, it was a piece of cake and worked flawlessly.

      THANK YOU!

  14. Maurice says:

    wanted to exchange the DAZN app button works with many apps except with the STBemu which I installed via the downloader.

    is that somehow possible would be important to me.

    I also installed other apps via the downloader and it works except with STBemu

    thank you in advance for your support

  15. Sergio says:

    Hi, I use my fire tv remote (prime video, Netflix, disney+ and Amazon music buttons) on my shield TV 2017. App buttons do nothing here. Can you please help me?

  16. Tim says:

    Good apps! I have a version 3 Firestick remote and reprogrammed the Netflix button to HOBMax without a problem. My question, there is a Prime Video button that I’d like to remap to Paramount Plus. However, I don’t see Prime Video as a selection in your codes and also don’t see Paramount Plus in the selection table. Might you be adding these at some point to this very useful app? Thanks!!

    • Please read the section above that is titled “Important Limitations.” As it states, pre-installed apps, like Prime Video, cannot be remapped. As for Paramount Plus, it sounds like you are subscribed to the Prime Video Channel. Remapper can only open apps, not channels. If you want, you can install the Paramount app and Remapper will see that.

  17. John Moralis says:

    It would be amazing if there was a firestick lite remapper . You know like the little live TV button on it. Wish I could change that to any app.

  18. Max says:

    Is it possible to remap the power button? I’m currently using an insignia fire tv edition remote for my Fire TV Cube, and everything works great, except the power button can’t shut off my Vizio TV since it’s sending an Insignia tv power button IR signal.

  19. snixsys says:

    In Step 5. “Select the app that you want to be launched when the app button on your remote is pressed”

    Do I not have to re-install the app that you said to uninstall in step 2?

    • In step 2, you are uninstalling the app that matches the logo on the button you are remapping. For example, if you are remapping the Netflix button, then you would uninstall Netflix. In step 5, you are selecting the app that you want the button to open. So if you want the Netflix button to launch Pluto instead, then you would select Pluto for step 5.

      • snixsys says:

        Ah, now I understand. Works as advertised. Thanx!

        As I rarely use Hulu, I redirected the dedicated Hulu button to an app I use a lot. Question. I could I now reload Hulu and open it up from the application list?

        • Sorry, but no. If you use the Remapper app for Hulu it means you cannot also have the real Hulu app installed. This is because the only way for the Remapper app to work is to mimic the real Hulu app, so the two cannot be installed simultaneously on the Fire TV. You have to choose between remapping the Hulu button or having the actual Hulu app installed.

  20. James says:

    Just wanted to say thanks! Very cool piece of software. I’ve been wishing for months to be able to change the HBO button to go to Disney+. Seems Amazon would build this in, but your program is awesome! Thanks for sharing this with us!

  21. Kyle says:

    IMDB TV remapper???

  22. Jerry says:

    Is it possible to remap a button to nothing? I have a Fire TV Cube 2nd Gen and the Y button on every USB game controller I have launches Hulu. If Hulu isn’t installed it brings up the app store page for it.

    • Interesting dilemma. I’ll try to come up with a better solution in the future for your scenario, but for now, my suggestion is to set Remapper for Hulu to a system app that doesn’t have an interface, like “GameCircle” or “Fire TV Player.” Doing that will “launch” the system app, but nothing will happen because the app doesn’t have an interface to actually launch.

      • Jerry says:

        Thanks for the reply. Another problem I just realized is that if the remapper is used for my scenario, pressing Y reppeatedly in games would cause it to reset.

  23. Tina says:

    Anyway to remap the danz or any other button to go to cable input. (HDMI 2) I hate having to push 2-3 buttons to go to cable every time I turn on the tv. I wish it would just stay on the last input I was on.

    • I briefly looked into input switching and couldn’t find a way to do it. I’ll be looking again soon but I don’t think it is possible.

      As for staying on the last input, there is an option under Settings > Display & Sounds > Power On that allows you to set it to go to the last input when turned on.

  24. Kevin Clements says:

    Is it possible yet to remap the “prime video” button to open “Paramount+”?

    • Sorry, but it will never be possible to remap the Prime Video button because the Prime Video app cannot be uninstalled. This remapping method replaces the app being remapped, so since it is impossible to replace the Prime Video app, the Prime Video button cannot be remapped.

  25. Irina Patent says:

    My mom has Toshiba 43’smart tv model TF-43A810U21. she is using eTvnet app. I no it’s not common app for many users, but for elderly smart tv is a challenge. Is there a way to have a code to remap remote button for that app.

    • The Remapper app you install is the one that matches the button being pressed, not the app being launched. Any app you have installed can be assigned as the app that opens when the remote button is pressed.

      • Christian says:


        DAZN remapping doesn’t work (remote is like the Grundig remote in the picture)

        DAZN app isn’t installed and pressing on the button leads to the FireTV app store instead of the remapped app.

  26. CS says:

    DAZN remapping doesn’t work (remote is like the Grundig remote in the picture)
    DAZN app isn’t installed and pressing on the button leads to the FireTV app store instead of the remapped app.

    • CS says:


    • Please install the official DAZN app and tell me what the package name is. If you don’t know how to get the package name, get it by doing this:
      1. Install the official DAZN app
      2. Install any Remapper app other than Remapper for DAZN
      3. Launch the Remapper app manually by going to Settings > Apps > Manage… > Remapper… > Launch
      4. Find DAZN on the list of your apps from within Remapper and the package name will be the part in the parenthesis. Something like: DAZN (com.dazn.something)

  27. TehRoger says:

    Thank you so much! Works like a charm.

  28. Sebastien says:

    Works great for ny disney button now for plex. Is there a way to remap the “guide” button (tv logo with antenna)? This button is useless for me so I would use it to open something else like youtube.

  29. ChrisHa says:

    not working on DAZN and TvNow Button on Grundig TV. It open only the link to the native app. but starting the remapper app for dazn or tvnow over the apps menu then load the selected app.

  30. Paul says:

    I remapped the psvue button on my insignia fire tv, and no matter what app I select it just goes to Live right next to find and the apps. I remmapped the HBO button on same remote and it works fine.

  31. Diko says:

    Is there any option to add a remapper for the Live TV Guide button?
    A lot of us are not using the builtin live TV functionality and by thus are “wasting” an extra button we could leverage.

    Doesn’t work on Disney+ botton.

  33. Matt says:

    So many spelling errors in the article. So many typing errors like the 2nd sentence “if you don’t even have the app that they’re for installed”. Please take some time to proofread and spellcheck in the future. Your Microsoft Word (or whatever) spellchecker or grammar checker doesn’t actually always pick up on homophones like two vs to vs too etc. and doesn’t pick up on words spelled correctly but used in the wrong place as the example above. This is where an actual human re-reading their article is actually still useful.

    To the question now:

    Is this short list of possible Remappers listed here all-inclusive? For example, I want to set Paramount+ on one of the buttons but it’s not in the list.

    • As stated in step 3, “Sideload the Remapper app below that corresponds to the app button that you want to remap.” Meaning, the Remapper app which you select to install is the app that matches the button you want to remap, not the app you want to launch with that button. The app you wish to launch, which in your case is Paramount+, is simply selected from a list of all of the apps on your device. This is done in step 5 from within the Remapper app.

  34. Hiran says:

    Can remapper be used for the new amazon firestick wifi 6. i want to remap the netflix button so that it opens PLEX app

  35. Mavvy says:

    I know it has been an issue discussed here and at many other places: some revisions/firmware versions of Fire TV devices do not control Bluetooth volume with the remote’s volume buttons. I wonder if Remapper could achieve this?

  36. Vincent says:

    I can’t get to work the remap for Hulu, I try with the one for disney+ and it worked, I read the others comments where you said that we could try to install it and then uninstall it (the app, in this case Hulu), the issue is that in my country we don’t have Hulu, so I can’t do that, so when I install the remap for Hulu it keeps directing me to the install Hulu page, but is not available

  37. Mark says:

    I just noticed on my insignia fire tv edition remote that the hbo button I used to have remapped for YouTube tv now launches Disney+ no matter what I do. Tried to reconfigure the remapper and uninstalled the remapper app, still launches Disney+

    Firstly thanks for your work any news on a code for Emby.

    Many thanks

  39. Tom Sokol says:

    Remapper for Disney+ does not list YouTube as an option. Why? I can see YouTube installed on my FireTV stick. Thanks!

    • I’m seeing YouTube show up in Remapper on my device fine, so it’s hard to determine why it isn’t showing up on yours. If you can, please email me photos or a video of you scrolling through the full list of apps in Remapper.

      • Katia Bastoen says:

        Same problem for me. I first deleted YouTube from my Fire Tv stick then installed the remapped for the Disney+ button. But when I click on it, the list of replacement apps doesn’t have YouTube on it? Thanks for your help. I’m setting this up for my parents and it’d be so cool for them if it worked.

        • It’s the real Disney+ app that you need to install and then uninstall. Not YouTube. So, uninstall Remapper app for Disney+, install YouTube, then install the real Disney+, then uninstall the real Disney+, then install and launch the Remapper app for Disney+ (code 2214).

  40. CordCutterSteve says:

    The remapper works but it’s missing Sling as one of the apps to remap a button to. With so many people cutting the cord and using Slijg, i seems like a pretty big shortcoming.
    Will donate when sling is supported.

  41. fuscanese says:

    Excellent Work!
    I re-mapped two buttons, no issues, clean smooth and well documented, well executed

  42. Polo says:

    What about if you use fire OS 7 debloater to deactivate Amazon music or IMDb TV would it then be possible to remap the buttons that they were associated with ?

  43. Andy says:

    I have tried to remap Disney+ button to STB Emulator, but didn’t work. The STB Emulator app is side loaded, does it make any difference. Any help/suggestion is appreciated.

    • It shouldn’t make a difference whether the app is sideloaded or not. All apps should appear on the list within the Remapper app. I just installed STB and it shows up in my Remmapper app so I don’t know why you’re not seeing it. Maybe try restarting your Fire TV.

  44. q says:

    Is there any way to say remap the Disney+ button to the Kodi app?

    • Yes, follow the instructions to install the Remapper for Disney+ app, then assign Kodi as the app you want to launch from within the Remapper for Disney+ app.

      • josh says:

        Hi Elias, I’m a bit confused. According to your guide:
        “You must have the app for the button that you want to remap in your Amazon purchase history. If you are not sure if you have ever downloaded/purchased the app, then press the app button and install the app that the button brings up”
        I thought kodi is sideloaded, and therefor can’t be assigned a buttom.

        • The app you need to have “purchased” is the one that matches the button on your remote. So if you are trying to make the Netflix button launch Kodi, for example, you need to have first “puchased” Netflix. So you would purchase/download Netflix, then uninstall it, then intall the Remapper for Netflix.

          • josh says:

            Thank you Elias, you’re a real genius!!! No matter how many times I’ve read it, I still got it wrong, lol. I’ve been checking your website since the very beginning (firetv 1st gen), and I always find useful ideas from you and other participating members. Keep up the good work.

  45. Simon says:

    would it be better to combine into single app? First press and detect the button you would like to map, then pop up the app list

  46. Michael says:

    With an software update this week to fire os for my Grundig fire tv edition, DAZN and TVnow do not work anymore. I uninstalled the remapper apps reinstalled DAZN and TVnow, started both, uninstalled both, reinstalled both remapper apps. But they will not start when pressing the buttons. Starting the remapper apps manually in the apps settings to assign my apps works.

    • Fred says:

      Same Problem here!
      Can you explain how you solved it? Tried reinstall etc… But nothing happens

    • Thanks for the info and the package names below. Those are the same package names Remapper currently uses, so that hasn’t changed. Remapper still works on my own Fire TV Smart TV, which is running Fire OS 6, so I’m going to have to wait to see if an update also breaks Remapper on my own TV model before I can try to figure out if there is a way to make the app work again. Sorry that there isn’t anything else I can do right now, but my hands are tied without access to the TV.

  47. Michael says:

    DAZN is com.dazn
    RTL+ aka TVnow is de.cbc.tvnow.firetv

  48. Steve Benghiat says:

    Hello Elias,
    Great sounding app.

    Doesn’t work on my 22″ insignia fire tv. Tried both the Disney+ and Netflix remappers. Uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times. Still nothing.

    Remapping Hulu and Netflix apps worked on Fire TVs before. Now, clicking the remapped buttons turns on TV but not launching the remapped app. OS updated to by the Amazon. Tried: uninstall and reinstall remap apps: tried on two Fire TVs, both failed. Thanks in advance.

    When going to Fire TV OS settings-applications, running the remap app either 2210 or 2212 do launch the remapped target apps. But pressing the buttons on the remote(s) does nothing. Noticed the updated OS is forcing the user to select the login profile.

    I was hoping to be able to change the cable TV channels on my Insignia TV with my Fire TV Stick.

    Might it be possible to program the Disney+ to “channel up” and the hulu to “channel down”?

    If not, we need to use a second remote when we are watching cable TV instead of Amazon or Netfix.

    is there a way that I can use one of those buttons to turn on/off english subtitles in Prime/Netflix?
    As a non-native speaker it is sometimes just too hard to understand or I am out vocabulary – and this would be a great opportunity to improve it.

    Since you don’t have access to a Fire TV device with OS 7.x would it help any if the community helped you? Find someone willing to help that you can instruct as to what to do and report back to you so that you can then work together to get an update to the apps.

    I just tried to use the remapper for Hulu, 2212. When I tried to install the firestick said the package was corrupt. I then installed the Disney + remapper just fine. You may want to check the 2212 package to see if it is in fact corrupted.

    I have remapped my button Disney+ to launch Apple TV, but it does not open the app. In fact, it does nothing when I press the button. However, if I go to the remap app in my settings>applications and go to the remapping app and choose Launch App it will launch Apple TV. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi, followed instructions and all worked, but when trying to map BBC iPlayer to the Disney+ button, the BBC iPlayer app did not show up in step 4, even though when installing it shows up as “I own it”. I had uninstalled the iPlayer app before trying to remap…? Any idea why the iPlayer doesn’t appear in the “select app” screen?

    TV: Toshiba 55LF621U21
    Remote: ct-rc1us-21 (Rev E)
    Fire OS: (PS7268/3217)
    Want to remap: Netflix, Hulu or Disney+
    Remap to: VLC

    All remappers fail in the same way. With no remapper installed; clicking any of the non-installed application buttons will launch the Appstore download page. Installing any of the three(Disney+, Hulu or Netflix) remappers will cause nothing to happen to the respective buttons when pressed. If you use the launch application function from the settings for the remapper it will open the menu to select which application to want to remap. After setting the application and pressing the respective button it will not open. If you use the launch application feature for the remapper from settings after you remap, it will open the correct remapped application, but the physical button does nothing. If I disable WiFi and press the remapped button it will drop me to the homepage and tell me “Some features require that you sign in…”; the notifications page says this error is from
