    Hi wt0,
    is there a way to start SB Player automatically on startup? I would like to run my TV Stick "headless" just as SqueezeBox audio sink so this would be quite convenient.

    Does SB player run on the Amazon Fire TV? From what I understand, it runs a variant of Android 4.4.2 KitKat that's heavily modded by Amazon.

    I have one on pre-order here in Germany and am very interested about this. If you expect SB Player to run, how would I go about purchasing and installing it? It's my understanding that it's somewhat tricky to install the Google Play Store on the FTV. (Of course, I found infos on various forums about installing APKs on the FTV, I just read that the Play Store is one of the harder things to get running.)

    It runs fine on the FireTV, someone has tried it already. SB Player is actually already on the Amazon App Store for 3rd gen Kindles and the Fire phone and I'm in the process of the getting it approved for the FireTV. So far Amazon has been stupidly picky about very minor issues for the FireTV approval process. I've fixed the UI issues they've complained about, but the latest complaint has been that it couldn't connect to MySqueezebox.com. SB Player has a permanent "MySqueezebox.com" entry in the saved server list, so I guess they think that it is primary feature.

    I've been trying to tell them that MySqueezebox.com is a site that may sometimes be reachable for a variety of reasons and that it is only an optional feature, but the testers just can't seem to grasp that concept.

    Sidenote: The person who tested it was able to do so because I created a beta-test version in the amazon app store and added that person as a tester.

    Ha. Sounds like Apple testing in the early days. They eventually learned about it....

    Yeah kind of reminds of the early webOS days too, though it wasn't quite this bad. I still remember my Boom blasting music at random times cause I had to give them a server to test Squeeze Control and I hadn't added MySb support yet.

    Well, these days Apple demands videos of everything which can also be pretty bad if you've got a lot of functionality. Only for new Apps, though. Updates these days are quite relaxed, they've got automated testing for everything they really care about and the rest is really "if there are many user complaints we might look more carefully but otherwise it's probably fine".
