Where can I find the IP Address of my Fire TV?

Settings - Device - About - Network

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

Please toggle the 'ADB Debugging' setting(Settings - Device - 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 very quickly(300ms).

Also verify the app status is 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.

Please toggle the ADB Debugging setting(Settings - Device - Developer options) on the Fire TV off and then on again. The troubleshoot section in the phone client app will also find and resolve common issues.

The mouse coordinates are off.

The Fire TV 3rd Generation and the Fire TV Cube models have a bug that affects the mouse position unless the display settings are set to 1080p. 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).

I have the Fire TV Edition model(Element, Toshiba) and the status is stuck on starting.

Open the client app on the phone then navigate to the troubleshoot section. If the troubleshooting ends with a error then press the refresh button to update the troubleshooting results.

I have other questions. Help?
