Anything that can be done? Has anyone contacted Amazon support?

Amazon support is a joke. I'm still waiting on the ability to use multple wired controllers.

Green throttle Atlas works great on AFTV2:

Not bad for $10, looks and feels like an xbox 360 controller.

When I plug the receiver into my Fire TV, I can see it light up in response to me pressing buttons on the controller, just like it does attached to a PC, but I don't get any input.

i cant get this pad working either. i dont think there is any linux support for it.

Got moga pocket to work on fire tv2 !
YES , i did get moga pocket to work on firetv2 YOU PROBLABLY NEED TO BE ROOTED FOR THIS TO WORK !
HOWEVER THERES A CATCH ,
being that it is being recognized and paired only on the software side, and not the fire tv hid side thru
new controller recognize, it is being recognized and paired only by the moga pivot and moga universal driver app
THIS is sufficient however to allow it to work just like with any android device. but firetv hardware itself is not superseeding
the pairing, as this is doing it just like it would on your cell phone !


BUT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.

each time you restart or power on your firetv2 , you MUST reinitialize and re-pair the moga universal software to the
pocket controller. YES for many, this inconveinence may be too much, but

i am not willing to spend another 50.00 on moga pro !

SOO-------------------------------------------------------
how to do it !

install both moga universal app. and moga pivot app !

now in the universal driver app, with moga pocket turned on ! , allow the moga universal app/driver to force recognize and pair
the pocket controller, pay no mind / and dont try to do it in fire tv settings , it will not help !


the moga universal driver will pick the device up !
BUT LISTEN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
depending on if your using it for emulators or other,

in the moga universal app, you may need to switch the setting to universal/keyboard mode,
this may or may not give your games and emus the extra needed compatibility,

if not just leave this setting on game controller.

again, its the setting in the moga universal app /driver ,
one that changes from game control only setting to keyboard ,etc.

YOU MAY OR MAY NOT GET OTHER, OR BETTER PAIRING USING THE MOGA PIVOT APP!
HOWEVER FIRST I WOULD DO IT JUST USING THE MOGA UNIVERSAL APP/ DRIVER FIRST !

SO-----------------------
LONG STORY SHORT ,
FIRETV2 ITSELF WILL NOT RECOGNIZE CONTROLLER IN SYSTEM SETTINGS,
HOWEVER, USING THE MOGA APPS, IT IS SUFFICIENT ENOUGH TO FORCE PAIR IT INTO ANDROID ITSELF USING
SOFTWARE TO DO IT ! SIMILLAR TO WHEN YOUR ANDROID PHONE PAIRS IT !

BECAUSE USUALLY IT IS DONE ON THE SOFTWARE SIDE, AND NOT INTERNALLY THRU HARDWARE RECOGNIZE.

make sure before you open the moga driver app to pair it , that you first have the moga pocket turned on !
now follow the pairing message click pair and let the software recognize the controller !

its now working,
again remember whenever you shut down ,
next start up, need to repair controller for usage , using the moga universal driver/app, and also
tweak the usage settings in that app using the select game controller / or keyboard options

AGAIN , THIS IS IN THE MOGA UNIVERSAL APP/DRIVER SETTING.

if all else fails, i would then and only then try first pairing using the moga pivot app,
but
ONLY as last resort ! other than that use moga universal driver /app !


YOU SEEN IT FIRST HERE !

for anyone not able to pair a third party controller , ON THEIR FIRE TV2

SOME HELP,

AS YOUR PHONE USUALLY ONLY PAIRS CONTROLLER BLUETOOTH DEVICES THRU THE SOFTWARE PAIRING METHOD , NOT HARDWARE
TRY THAT ! SAME AS ON PHONES .......................

install software for the device , with device ALREADY turned on ,open the software for it ,
now use pair select or search for device in the menu,

there you have it, about a 70 percent chance your device will now work on fire tv2 , paired only by using the software meant for the device !
and not at all thru the firetv2 system controller pairing settings !
ONLY bad thing doing this for less compatible devices is you will problably need to re-pair device in said software every time you restart
firetv2

Yes moga pocket works , read on
you can link it to work,
however not thru fire tv settings, thru the moga universal driver app, and or pivot app.

turn pocket controller on,

now in the moga universal app , select link and find controller ,

app will find moga pocket and link it,

youll know its linked when moga pocket flashes green once !

only bad thing is you may have to do this relink thru the moga universal driver /app
everytime you restart , sorry

YOU MAY NEED TO BE ROOTED FOR ANDROID SYSTEM TO GIVE MOGA APP PERMISSION TO LINK , ETC.

NOT SURE , PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

SMALL INCONVIENIENCE , BUT ILL TAKE IT
I WONT BUY ANOTHER CONTROLLER AT 50.00 OR MORE !
