Flirc with Fire TV Gen3 and Ethernet adapter

Recommended Posts

So here is the use case:

1. Want to control a Fire TV remotely connected to a slingbox.

2. All good so far, setup device on slingbox as Samsung DVD programmed remote and can control Fire TV thru the skinned remote on the slingbox, used the Amazon OTG cable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F6K81XM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

3. Here is the issue I am using the Amazon Ethernet adapter to use wired ethernet, but this won't work at the moment can only use wi-fi? Do not get option in network settings to use wired connection, tried full reset still no go? Is it because it "sees" the ethernet adapter as an OTG as well and turns that one off?

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

I solved the issue. It is indeed to do with having 2 OTG devices. If you want to have a wired ethernet and a flirc you need to use a hub like this:

simply pop in the hub to the OTG cable above and add the flirc and use the ethernet adapter in the hub both work just fine.

 

hope this helps somebody.
