DVBLink Theatre on Amazon Fire TV

I have just installed the DVBLink Theatre app on my Amazon Fire TV. It was easy to set up and works a treat. Much easier and quicker to set and play the recordings from my Synology NAS than the DVBLink add-on in the sideloaded Kodi app.

I realise this is just version 1.0.0, but can I suggest some ideas for a future release?

- Update the UI (particularly for the EPG/guide). It's functional but seems from a previous era...
- For recorded content, provide the facility to play from the beginning or resume. This would also be valuable if multiple DVBLink clients are on the network.
- Use the 'right click' menu button of the Fire TV remote to bring up sub-menus, rather than having to navigate to the left or top of the screen.

Keep up the great work.

Unfortunately, deinterlacing doesn't work on a Fire TV with Theatre, even when it's turned on. I have the same problem in Kodi too.

I think it's time to move to Apple TV 4, or Nvidia Shield.

Just for the record, finally got an ATV4 running MrMC and it has no access to hardware acceleration and software deinterlacing is still terrible :( barely better than my FireTVs.

So disappointed.
