But I was able to pair my dualschock 4 to my unrooted 2nd gen fire tv, and it works pretty much flawlessly.
Even the buttons are correct.
From what I read, square would be accept, and cross would be cancel.
But with me, cross is accept and circle is cancel, just like on the ps4.
The share button works as the play button, and the options button works as the menu button.
The controller does not disconnect, even if I put the fire tv in sleep mode.
And I have unpaired it from the aftv, back to the ps4, and back to the aftv a few times, always successfully.
Now I am assuming this must have been an update that fixed the problems everyone was having, because I didn't do anything extraordinary.
But let me list a step by step, since I did have some trouble at first.
My aftv was not recognizing my DS4 at first, and I am unsure if it was the restart, or the order in which I pressed the buttons that fixed it, but I recommend restarting your aftv just in case.
Then you go to settings -> controllers and Bluetooth devices -> game controllers
Before you select Add New Game Controller, you must first press the share and PS buttons simultaneously on your DS4 until it starts to blink.
(If you have a ps4 connected to the controller, make sure it is completely off, or your DS4 will simply turn it on instead of entering pairing mode)
The blink is faster then the normal blink you get if you only hold the PS button.
If the blink isn't faster, then you are not in pairing mode.
Once your DS4 is in pairing mode, go ahead and select Add New Game Controller option.
You should see an option that says Wireless Controller.
Select it and let the pairing finish.
Once it is done you should see a bluetooth symbol on your screen and your DS4 is ready to use.
So try it, and let me know if Amazon did fix this, or if I was just extremely lucky.
Also, please say if your on first gen, second, or stick. Also if you are rooted or not.
If you are still having problems and can't connect you can try this fix. Don't forget to thank the op, and the user who brought it up.
If you did connect, but are getting lag on the controller, this might help you.
(For me it fixed lag I was having on ppsspp)
Again don't forget to thank those who helped you. 😉
User SilentBot also offered a tip on how to save your controller's battery just two posts down.
Thank him if he helped you.
