Sideclick universal remote attachment does not fit the Fire TV Edition television’s remote

The Sideclick universal remote attachment is one of the best accessories for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. That’s why it’s unfortunate that it does not fit the remote that comes with the Element Fire TV Edition television. While the Element’s voice remote looks a lot like the regular Fire TV voice remote, it’s a little thicker so does not fit into the Sideclick’s holster clip, which is contoured to perfectly fit the existing remotes. Jenn Epstein from Sideclick told me they don’t currently have plans to support the Fire TV Edition television remote, but are certainly consider making a clip for it. They have purchased a Fire TV Edition television to further look into supporting the device. The Fire TV Edition television remote has power and volume buttons, which for me was most commonly what I used the Sideclick for, but if you were hoping to attach a Sideclick to that remote, in order to control your other A/V equipment, I’m sorry to say you’re out of luck for now.

    What about the piggyback remote?

    How does that remote to connect? Is it Bluetooth, wifi-direct, or infrared? Multiples? I’m wondering if this same remote can be connected to a Nvidia Shield TV.

      The Fire TV Edition remote uses Bluetooth as far as I can tell.

      If it has a mic I doubt it, I once tried the old FTV1 remote on a Shield and it failed.

      The non-voice Fire Stick remote however did work.

      My guess is that the mic caused problems.

    Wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me. I bought sideclick when it went on sale. I like it, wife hates it, kid always snaps off the attachment.
    Hows the new TV pair BT remotes? My living room TV stock remote is BT and I can do everything except voice search.
