Sorry I don’t know where I should be asking this. I have my Fire TV/Stick set up on my Sony TV. Last weekend I took it to my parents home to use on their Samsung TV. After many attempts to remember their internet password I was able to “install” my Fire TV/Stick or so I thought. I saw all my apps BUT the regular program on the TV sound was playing in the background and I could not watch anything or figure out why this happened? Would you know why or what I should have done to be able to watch a movie on my Fire TV/Stick? Thank you in advance.

Is there an external speaker set up on the TV?

No, but my friend thinks maybe what I have to do is unhook the shaw cable box. I am going to try that next week when I visit my parents. Will let you know if that works. Thanks.

anyone else using this box?..it’s been flawless for me so far! :+1:

I think this is the right place to ask this question. I have a Fire TV Stick 4K. The software version I have installed is Fire OS (NS6281/4061) and the Fire TV Home version is 6341067.1.

I have noticed that there are some options and some functionality missing from he Fire Stick software that I have. When I check for updates, it tells me that I am current and up to date.

I am missing some settings around Security, and the main thing I noticed is I only have the one question about Apps from Unknown Sources. I cannot authorize the individual transactions to update my Fire Stick.

Is there something I’m missing? Thanks for any insights you can provide.
