    Does anyone know if there is a way to get AmpDroid running on amazon FireHD-Stick? Just preordered one for sleeping room TV.

    Just FYI:
    Got my FireHD stick today.
    Sideloading AmpDroid (Current version from Google Play store) was no problem, as well as starting it.
    I managed to configure my server with remote / remote app. So far, so good.

    But 1. I didn't think about the fact that the Fire Stick does not have a touchscreen. You cannot reach all elements (e.g. the TV, Series etc button in the main menu) which is really a pitfall, 2. and even more important: As soon as I tried to play any media, the app disappeared and I was kicked back to the fire TV settings menu (from where I started).

    @DieBagger Any Interest and Time to take a look and make a FireTV-Stick compatible version, even if it's quick and dirty? This would allow all MePo users to run their media (including live TV) on a FTV stick. I love this idea ;-)

    This idea is great.
    I miss mepo so much. Since i have a problem with pay tv i changed my setup to a sat receiver and a FireTV (box, not stick and because of amazon prime) .
    I've tried plex and kodi but nothing has a WAF like Mepo.
    Sometimes at night i wake up and cry

    You might want to try installing an app like Apps2Fire (from Google Play) on your android phone. Once it is installed, it becomes trivial to sideload apps by first installing the app on your android cell phone and from that transferring a copy in one quick shot to firestick of fire tv.
