Amazon Fire TV as USB server - Xbox wireless receiver on Windows 10 Client

Dear Support,

I try to use my Xbox 360 wireless Controller via an Android Server that is installed on a Amazon Fire TV. Therefore i plugged my Xbox 360 wireless receiver into the USB Port of the FireTV and installed the Android USB server via the APK directly on the FireTV. The USB client runs on a windows 10 Computer and recognizes the Wireless Receiver and the wireless controller, but it seems that the FireTV takes back control of the USB dongle after short time causing the xbox controller as an input device for the FireTV . Is there anything I can do? I bought the the server thinking I could solve my living room gaming problem with it.

Thank you very much and kind regards

Hi, i have updated the amazon fire tv app from 2.9.3 to 3.3.8, after you get the update see if it works ok. If not, post here and perhaps we can have a quick TeamViewer session and ill take a look at any issues.

Great, thanks Michael.

Great, thanks Michael. Unfortunately, the app does not show up on my amazon app store (maybe it is not listed in the country?). Could I download the APK somewhere directly?

It might take a few hours to get there, anyway here is the apk https://virtualhere.com/sites/default/files/usbserver/AndroidServer.apk

Dear Michael, thanks again

Dear Michael, thanks again for your support. I got it working for one device. But as soon as I use two devices, the second device does not work. It shows up as a device on the client, but it can not be used. Windows says there is a problem with that device. The first device still works though when the second one is attached. And both devices work when I attach them alone to the USB hub. I use the following USB hub with an external power supply:

Any idea what to do?

can you post the server log here, by going to the app menu at the top right of the firetv screen and selecting system messages, copy.

Is it possible to paste those messages in here?
