The Fire TV stick is easy to install if you have the supported TV and plug the stick in directly. I have an amp/receiver and there TV stick had some issues. First it started playing a strange sound to configure the remote but it would not stop playing it even after it reported that remote has been configured. I had to unplug it from power to force it to stop. Second, it downloaded the update and then it would no longer work through the amp/receiver. I believe it is because TV stick wanted to play at 4k resolution which the receiver does not pass through so I had to plug it directly into TV. Finally, the main reason I had to buy this device is because there is no app for Android TV. If there was, I would not need the additional device and the additional remote.
