FiredTV Launcher - Replacement Home/Launcher

I'm running 1.1.5 of FiredTV. I am having an issue with some apps that playback video content. Kodi works fine, however Hulu Plus does not.

When I play a video, I get a black screen (with any logo overlays visible) with full audio.

If I force close FIreTV and launch Hulu, everything works as it should. Relaunch FiredTV and launch Hulu, I'm back to the blank screen and audio. So it appears to be something FiredTV related.

A Disneyland app also has the same problem when trying to play back video. I get the audio, but no video if FiredTV is running.

This is with the Amazon FireTV Stick.

Just got my firetvs in the mail and setup my tv and one of my sticks.. I have firedtv there and when I launch it it opens up however that is it. When I hit the home button I go to the normal fire tv page and I have to go through the applications menu to open firedtv (its just as easy to go through the applications and launch the app I want).. Maybe I am missing something. My understanding was that you did not require a root and you just opened it and it worked (maybe something has to be configured with Lama??

Can someone help me out..

Thanks a lot
