new user here, signed up yesterday, and I am amazed, ready to finally cut the cord for good. kudos to my fellow software developers for integrating TVE so seamlessly - exactly what I've been waiting for.
really love the app, too.
However, one feature I really miss - old habits die hard -, is the ability to just flip through channels with one click of a button. I did discover that the Channels App on my FireTV can be somewhat controlled with a bluetooth keyboard. I can change channels by entering channel number and hitting enter - no OSD, but works for me. I can also do a "channel down" hitting the "-" key. However, I haven't found out how I can do a "channel up". The obvious choice, "+", didn't work. I tried basically every key on the keyboard, none triggered a "channel up".
Anyone has a clue how/if this is doable - with keyboard, remote, whatever?
Ideally, since left/right and ff/rew on the fire remote trigger the same actions, I'ld love to be able to do a channel up/down on the Amazon remote, but I understand that this is probably not a priority.
One more thing I'ld love to see on the FireTVStick 4K is video continuing playback in the background while viewing the "Guide"/"DVR" etc - or at least have a grid option in the "Quick Guide". As beautiful as it is with the tiles and all - with >150 channels from TVE it's just too cluttered to navigate through the tiles for me.
But, again, thanks for that great product. Still in the trial, but will probably cancel my cable with the next bill.
