Hi Joel,

Could you please provide the Xamarin build info via Xamarin studio ->About XamarinStudio->Show details and attached your project? So we can try to reproduce this issue at our end.

current xamarin studio is 5.5.4 build 15.
Comment 4 Joel Barsotti 2015-01-08 14:48:43 UTC
Just to verify the project works fine on fire tablets, it appears to be specific to the fireTV.

I finally got tired from the situation with this. It's definitely a bug in the Xamarin code library that is there for 2 years.

Here is a code snippet based on Mono.Cecil that fixes it:

We do not currently support FireTV
Comment 7 Samantha Houts [MSFT] 2016-10-20 19:18:35 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.3.4-pre1. Thank you!
