Just an update. Display issue is resolved. Now sorting out some playback issues.

An FYI, display switching is not possible on the new FireTV 4K device. It only presents one setting so we can not switch too any other. Complain to Amazon as the hw can certainly display switch but for some reason they picked not to allow it.

Thanks for the update.

No frame rate switching makes the device totally useless for me. My library contains loads of stuff in various frame rates (23.976, 24, 25) and I really notice judder when everything is played as a conversion.

So for the moment I will have to switch back to my older FireTV.

I will certainly contact Amazon and ask them to reinstate this feature on the new device - whether they will listen and act is another matter entirely!

Amazon is working on their own refresh rate switching, so there's some hope, but who knows when or if it'll get released. This could explain why the old way to switch isn't present on Fire OS 6.

Hmm ... has this been fixed? Just received mine today and MrMC is unfortunately unusable ...

This is a very tricky issue, every time I think I get close, I expand the options and something gets borked.

Currently, have it working but 4k/30fps or 4k/60fps stutters like mad.

Stick with 1080p in fireOS, then it will behave.

If we switch to 1080p, does that effect just the menus? Meaning will 4k content still play at 4k resolutions or will the firetv downsize the resolution to 1080p during playback?

Also, just wanted to say with my first post that I've been reading/lurking for awhile, and I really appreciate your efforts on this app. Its my preferred method of local playback.
