Bought a fire tv to try and not only does Netflix not frame switch but neither does iplayer. Plus there is no options in settings to select 24p. You can select 50hz for iplayer but then auto switching for amazon prime fails .
niether can I find a way , as previous, to change on the fly with remote control button combinations.
this is basic stuff for a streaming device
Also tried itv player which doesn’t switch either ☹️
So looks like this vital feature only work with Prime?
ps in the U.K. 50hz is standard so it would make sense to set this as default for the home screen to avoid flicker.
it would also allow U.K. tv apps to work correctly without switching . But as of now that prevents auto switching for Prime
again this is common knowledge for a streaming stick
I agree the auto switching is probably down to the app owners. In this case it appears every app except Prime. (Tried ITV player with same result)
but as you say amazon could do more to help by adding a default 24p or even 23.976 option in the main display menu. Surely, they could apply pressure to the app owners to implement it, it’s not hard just a quick code.
Luckily there is a sort of a temporary fix by pressing rewind and up on the remote which will then cycle through the various options. But they’ve even made this harder than it should by not giving the option to manually flick through , you have to wait for each options to run its course.
