    have you had any luck getting a "Back" button to work via infrared?

    It is the button labeled "clear" on the pictured remote. I have programmed it to the "exit" button on my Harmony and It appears to work fine.

    The only weirdness I have noticed is that when I am using the IR I often get the message that I don't have a compatible remote for the app I am launching, even Plex. But if I just continue on everything works well.

    see this image . this forum doesn't display images after log-in, btw. so, Log-out or or click on the images link to display.


    I think this happens when the BT remote goes to sleep. They probably need to add notification option to settings.

    I have learned that if you hold the play/pause button and the select buttons down together for around 5 seconds, the Fire TV reboots (just as if you had gotten up, unplugged the power and plugged it back in)

    I just wanted to post this diagram I made/added too from the original page, if anyone thinks I should move buttons around let me know, or if I am missing anything let me know.
    $Harmony-FireTV.png

    also, anyone know how to fix it from double clicking on input? My left/right/up/down basically goes two times each press.

    In the Harmony software go to devices. Choose the device you are having the extra presses from. Choose Troubleshoot for that device. Choose the line that says something about the device responding too many times or not at all. On the next screen there will be a list of about 8 selections. Three is probably selected. Change it to 0. Save the settings and then update your remote.
