Hi there,

Is there any way to force apps I sideload to see my Fire TV 4k as an Android TV. I've had a couple apps that seem to think they're being used on either a phone or tablet still, and the interfaces are obviously not at all remote friendly in those cases.

Perhaps notably, my TV is an older one an it's probably only about 35" or so. Is there any way to force apps to realize that they need to use the TV interface?

Use an app called set orientation and set to landscape. This worked for me.

Because fireOS is a heavily modified version of android and it's not classified as anything in particular. Try the set orientation app and use a Rii keyboard/air mouse for the non remote friendly apps.
