The app states the network connection has timed out. Help?

Please toggle the 'ADB Debugging' setting(Settings - System - Developer options) on the Fire TV off and then on again.

I can not activate the mouse mode. Help?

Please verify that you are pressing the 'play / pause' button 2 times quickly(300ms).

Also verify the app status says started in the lower left corner. If you continue to experience issues please contact support at the email address below.

The status is stuck on starting. Help?

If the status is stuck on starting please toggle ADB Debugging off and then on again as that will usually resolve the issue.

The troubleshoot section in the phone app will also find and resolve common issues.

I have a Fire TV 3rd Generation and the mouse coordinates are off.

The Fire TV 3rd Generation has a bug that affects the mouse position unless the display settings are set to 1080p 50Hz. This issue also occurs with a real hardware mouse. So a temporary workaround until this is resolved is to adjust the display settings via the Fire TV settings(Settings - Display & Sounds - Display - Resolution - 1080p 50Hz).

I have the Element Fire TV Edition and the status is stuck on starting.

Open the app on the phone then navigate to the troubleshoot section. If the troubleshooting ends in failure then select the Force Start menu option while in the troubleshoot section. Then press the refresh button to update the troubleshooting results.

I have other questions. Help?
