Hi,

I have 2nd gen Fire TV stick non-4K. I have configured the correct inputs for cable and Fire TV, in the Fire TV settings. HDMI-CEC is enabled as well.

Speaking "Alexa, switch inputs" seems to work fine.

However, I want my TV to change to correct input automatically when I press the home button on the fire TV stick remote.

How to get this to work?

I found the reason for this issue. It turns out Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC on Samsung) does not connect to firetv, if I have my cable HDMI also plugged into the TV.

Removing the cable HDMI, and just having firetv stick plugged into the TV, makes HDMI-CEC work fine.

With Anynet+ functioning, I am able to change inputs correctly by pressing Home button + Back button on the fire TV stick remote.

I still don't know how to make Anynet+ work with my cable plugged in.
