Please equip the SlingPlayer app for Fire TV to utilize the onscreen remote functionality available in the SlingPlayer for Desktop PCs. The remote that comes with Fire TV is very basic, and I understand that to be an issue, but even if you displayed a picture of the remote and we navigated the remote using the Fire TV directional pad it would be better than the current app remote control functionality (5 menu and then submenus, a lot of clicks to execute a quick command). The current Fire TV app functionality is raw and requires many clicks to do simple functions and needs to be improved.
For reference I use Sling Box M1 connected to att uverse and stream at home or on the go with Fire TV. I selected Fire TV as the only medium that does not require a devoted device and fling/cast functionality so that kids and less technical users might also be able to use, but I am questioning whether the functionality is "there" yet. Does not appear to be. Thanks.
