I'm trying to take some screen shots of the firetv using the screencap utility mentioned at the bottom of this page:
https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/devices/fire-tv/docs/amazon-fire-tv-sdk-frequently-asked-questions My app runs in the background will product popup notification on whatever the user is watchingon the FireTV. I am able to take a screen shot and view it successfully if it's the home screen, but if I take a screencap of anything with the popup notification, including the home screen, the resulting png file is unreadable by any graphic program I try. The file size is about 8 megs, so it's getting something. Same issue if I take a screencap with a movie playing and there is a popup notification. Any suggestions? -Gregg
Hi, I am able to open the image after the image is pulled to PC. the captured image can also be opened in the image view in the application. I could not generated a unreadable or corrupted image while capturing with or without pop message. Can give me the steps to capture this unreadable/corrupted image. Can let me know the graphics program you talking about.
I'm not sure if there was a firmware fix for this, but everything seems to be working now. I can do a screen capture with or without a notification displayed, even without using Mark's solution. Thanks, -Gregg
