FireTV Media Player not showing up in HASS

I got my FireTV setup using this guide:

However when I run the firetv-server it works fine when going to localhost and shows the proper state of my firetv, but I can’t get Home Assistant to connect to it. I’m assuming this is due to the firetv server not starting at boot and rather me starting it up after boot?

Here is the error in homeassistant:

16-10-30 03:55:05 homeassistant.components.media_player.firetv: Could not connect to firetv-server at

Have the same issue. I guess that is worth a bug report.

Any luck with this? Mine appears most times on a reboot of the pi but will usually fail on a restart of HASS.
