Thanks. Haven't tried this yet. What happens if I press the Home button on the Fire remote? Do I go back to the Amazon or Kodi screen?

Goes to the Amazon home screen, so far only supports loading Kodi on boot and after screen timeout.

Thank you working on my first gen ftv stick with new menu update. However could not interact with it via either the remote or the amazon iOS remote app. Had to uninstall and reboot to stop it booting kodi. Thanx BB

Worked for me on both a Fire TV 1 and Fire TV 2. Both on latest 5.2.4.1 version. But I could not get the timeout option to work. Not sure about the units used, so I tried 1, 1000, and 1000000 but it always just launched immediately after boot each time.

Looks like the Time out function is to start kodi after the fire tv has gone to sleep for X amount of time.
