Fire TV 2. Gen, Fire TV 3. Gen and Proxy



  • Hi,

    i want to use a Fire TV 2. Gen and a Fire TV 3. Gen via Proxy. But if i enter @proxy in the settings only the Fire TV 3. Gen works but not the Fire TV 2. Gen. If i remove the setting @proxy only the Fire TV 2. Gen works but the Fire TV 3. Gen wont. Is it possible to get both work with only one kamera profile?

    Regards,

    It should be.

    I use all my cameras (one profile per camera) via a single Monocle Gateway instance and this includes viewing them on an “Amazon Fire TV 4K 2015 - (2nd generation)” and the latest FireTV 4K Sticks.

    Let me try testing this using the tag @proxy as I think most of mine are using @tunnel.

    What camera(s) are you using?

    Are both the FireTV devices (and the Monocle Gateway) all on the same WiFi network? Sometimes people put devices like this on a Guest network or VLAN and if your FireTV 2 were on a separate network, this could explain it.

    Also, if you can provide the log from Monocle Gateway while you attempt to view from your FireTV 2 we can see if at least the requests are making it to the gateway.

    Thanks, Robert



  • My Fire TV Stick 2. Gen is not a 4K one.
    And sorry for the wrong information but the 3. Gen is not a 3. Gen 4K, it is a Fire TV Cube.

    I also tried with the Tag @tunnel but after i changed the settings the Fire TV Cube was not able to connect to the Camera anymore. For now i have 2 profiles for the same Camera on the two different Fire TV devices: Camera Frontdoor Livingroom (with @proxy, Cube) and Camera Frontdoor Bedroom (without @proxy, Stick) but this is a bad solution.

    The camera is a Chinese-ONVIF-Outdoor-Camera:

    The vendor observed most of the ONVIF specification like motion aso but except two-way-audio.

    Yes, both of the FireTV and a RaspberryPi which runs the monocle gateway are on the same WiFi network.

    I will check the log and provide it later.

    Thanks for your response!

    You might also try tag @proxy-tcp. (instead of @proxy or @tunnel). It’s certainly odd that when you have it working on the FireTV Cube it stops working on the FireTV Stick. I have not seen that behavior before. I’ll have to dig around and see if I have an older FireTV stick of this generation to test with.

    I agree two profiles is not an ideal solution.

    Thanks, Robert
