Connect Amazon Fire Stick to Your Projectors

There are many ways to stream movies and shows through a projector. From your phone to an Amazon Fire TV Stick, watching your favorite shows and movies has gotten easier and better over the years. Amazon Fire TV Stick is simple and straightforward to set up and use. The vast majority of the Fire Stick models are compatible with projector use via HDMI port. Projectors without an HDMI port will require a converter, such as an A/V or VGA to HDMI converter. Adapters aren’t as good as converters in making sure that your Fire TV Stick can be recognized and read by vintage projectors.

To connect an Amazon Fire TV Stick to a projector:

1- Plug the Fire TV Stick into the projector’s HDMI port, and connect the USB cable to an USB power source.

2- Turn the system on and select the HDMI/Digital Input option.

3- Connect to Wifi and set up your Amazon account for Home Customization.

4- Connect the  projector to an external speaker source like Bluetooth Speakers (if the projector supports Bluetooth), a Receiver, or another audio solution (an HDMI Audio extractor or wireless HDMI Kit).

Some Issues to keep note of when setting up your Fire TV Stick

1-Audio issues connecting with multiple speakers or wireless speakers. Using HDMI Audio Extractor will help with audio sync. 

2-Projectors without HDMI ports should be wary of third party accessories that are incompatible when trying to go from VGA->HDMI or USB-C to HDMI.
