For those who've been following the Amazon Fire TV 4K dongle, you know we've been checking for a firmware update EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. since Amazon told us (back in February) that their next update would have a fix for the stuttering issue that is seen only on this version of their player.
So we were all pretty excited when we saw an update was available! (Fire OS 188.8.131.52 (N6213/1196)
That excitement was quickly dashed though as the problem persists.
We do know EXACTLY what the issue is, and it is a difference in how the 4K dongle decodes the very specific type of video stream Tablo sends. It's unclear why Amazon is using a different type of decoder for this device vs. their other products.
We have let Amazon know that we're still waiting on a fix and will keep you posted.
Thanks so much for your patience everyone!
