I'm trying to get SB Controller working on a Fire TV. It fails to run and reports that it's been tweaked to run in Portrait mode. Any workarounds or is it a lost cause?

There indeed is some code inside the app to try to figure out whether
it's dealing with a phone or tablet or which display size or other to
determine whether it should be using portrait mode only or not. We even
did run some tests on the Logitech Revue (ouch...).

I'd say you better spend a few bucks on an other app.

Actually, the app does run but gets stuck at the Software Licence page - there is no way to check I Accept.

I tried Squeezer which works okay but I still prefer SB Controller

Grrrrrrrrrr.
