I just tried the Ortek myself. Have you found commands ffwd, rew or menu?

I learned the commands from the Ortek. FF and Rew is Press/Press hold for either direction.

Menu???? Not sure I remember- What does the menu bring up again? I do not use Amazon Fire TV that much.

For FF and Rew I learned the Direction Keys left and right off the Ortek. Press/Press hold goes faster.

Menu??? Do not remember, What does the menu bring up again? Is it used during playback? Not home at the moment. Working late, in a server room now waiting for raid rebuild.

I called a friend of mine who was with me when we set it up. If memory serves it only works once (strange I know) at the beginning of the movie. After that you must start movie again to get it to come up again.

Sorry, I've only got a toggle for that.

Is there a way to create one from the toggle? Excuse my ignorance but IR codes are definitely not my expertise.

Thanks. I'll give those a try. There's only one app I use that needs Menu fairly often (PlayStation Vue). On the Fire remote itself, Menu is to the right of Home.

There is no way to make discretes by changing the IR codes if the device doesn't support them. But you can certainly write some logic to do it. I don't know URC very well, but the idea is On would check the status of a bit, send toggle if the bit is false, then set the bit. Off would check the bit, send toggle if the bit is true then reset the bit. So you need one Boolean variable and some If Then Else logic.

This isn't perfect since if you use any other remote, the bit will get out of sync with the actual state of the device. Just send a power toggle to get it back in sync.

I created a variable for the KDlinks to track the state. It works well but the OCD in me would prefer a true discrete.

I did little experimenting and discovered a few more things about the Ortek and Fire TV.

- Yellow is not the same as Menu. There is no Ortek command equivalent to Menu.
- Start also equals Home.
- Guide (3rd row from the top, 2nd from the left) is a Guide type of function that does not exist on the Amazon remote. Apps that recognize it will show their guide or top menu when it is pressed.
- Transport commands do work and work differently than the arrows.

Thanks for sharing this discovery. I had a couple of Orteks in my closet gathering dust since my Home Theater PC days. I considered plugging my FLIRC to the Fire, but Amazon seems to keep breaking it with each update. This seems to be immune and does every function except Menu which is no big loss anyway. HDMI-CEC also does everything except Menu, but not all of my TVs support CEC.

I also tried my Diamond MCE remote (uses NEC1 codes, not MCE or Ortek protocol). It works too. I post back when I map out all the commands. They're a little different than the Ortek.

@mdavej.
I have the gen one Amazon Fire TV and Remote. What button on the oem remote is considered menu? I am a bit confused. I can do everything on the MX-1200 except speech. What am I missing?

As far as I can tell the gen 1 and 2 have exactly the same buttons. As I said before, Menu is to the right of Home and has a graphic of 3 parallel lines stacked vertically printed on the button. I've seen it used in a couple of other apps like Youtube, Tivo and Slingbox. I tried every button on the Ortek, and nothing performs the Menu function.

To follow up on the Diamond remote, it's model RC118 or RC118N. It's my favorite MCE type of dongle due to the size, no blinding LED and NEC1 codes that don't have a toggle bit like MCE/RC-6 protocol does.

Here's the mapping for that one (Diamond = Amazon):

Up, Down, Left, Right, OK, Back = Up, Down, Left, Right, OK, Back
Play = Play/Pause
Stop = Stop
FFwd, Rew = FFwd, Rew
Skip Fwd = Right (for playback only)
Skip Back = Left (for playback only)
Clear = Home
Power = Sleep


Here are the relevant Diamond codes:

Could you send those Amazon Fire IR codes to me? Is is a Crestron Driver?

Thanks,

Could you send those Amazon Fire IR codes to me as well?

Thanks,

Hello, I have a Pronto TSU9600 and I am trying to control my Amazon Fire TV with it. From what I read in the forum the AFTV has a bluetooth remote. Does anyone have the hex codes for the TSU9600? Thank you.

I am always hesitant to mention the H-word, but will do in case its any help. Harmony products that use a Harmony hub can control every function of the Fire TV and Firestick. So there may be some useful codes in their database. I know it works, as I use it myself with a Harmony Ultimate. Details here; [Link: support.myharmony.com]

I'm uncertain how the FireTV IR control is accomplished. Does one simply attach an IR USB dongle to the FireTV then send IR commands or is the dongle attached to a PC running a program that translates IR to IP for the FireTV? In my application I would not want to use a PC or PI as an intermediary.
