How to Control Your Cable Box with the Fire TV Cube

1. Plug the IR blaster (the small, glossy rectangular cube) that came with your Fire TV Cube into its Infrared port.

2. Select Settings from the Home Screen.

3. Tap down, scroll right and select Equipment Control.

4. Select Manage Equipment.

5. Select Add Equipment.

6. Select Cable.

7. Click Yes to confirm. Click No if this isn't right, and add your correct ZIP code.

8. Select your cable provider.

9. After making sure your cable box is on and that you've got your remotes, click next.

10. Using your regular remotes, switch input to the cable box. Once you're on a cable channel, hit Fast Forward on the Fire TV Cube's remote.

11. Select Next.

12. Select the input your Cable Box is connected to.

13. Select Next.

14. Hit Fast Forward after the channel changes to another channel.

    Unfortunately, I did all of the above and it still will not change channels for me. Ugh. It switch to the right HDMI and have cable playing, but will not change channels.

    Kodi is just a player. It does not come with movies, or web sites where to play from. You provide it with your own library of movies stored locally, or over the network.

    For every other usage of Kodi there are plenty of websites available, but not here.

    p.p. Don't hijack a thread!!
