Yes the fire stick remote uses bluetooth, If you unplug the fire stick power and plug it back in bluetooth automatically turns back on and your fire remote will work again.Thanks for your reply
Been using the Amazon firestick Lite(2020) so have bought Firestick Tv 4k (2018),
received it this morning and managed to disable wifi and then the Bluetooth but once bluetooth was disabled i lost ability to use the remote controller(must be operating off Bluetooth and not IR) . How can I control the use of the firestick without using the Bluetooth Firestick controller?
Have 2 LG TVs with the newset being 2011 model both have Simplink on them which I activated but the remote control was unresponsive on both TVs. There is no option to turn auto power sync on ,unlike the more up to date Tvs .Yes the fire stick remote uses bluetooth, If you unplug the fire stick power and plug it back in bluetooth automatically turns back on and your fire remote will work again.
I use the TV remote which controls the fire stick with HDMI CEC.
You TV needs to support this ( most TV's do ) LG call it simplink, Sony call it BRAVIA Link or BRAVIA Sync, Samsung call it Anynet+ .
Some more info here.
To make things even more confusing, manufacturers often don’t call this feature “HDMI-CEC”. Like with Miracast, every manufacturer wants to call it their own branded name, even though it’s an interoperable standard.www.howtogeek.com
It is enabled by default on the Fire Stick, but you can check it by going to settings, Display and Sounds, HDMI CEC.
Yes,they both have CEC on them so unsure whats going on, will have to re-check the HDMI ports. Since last posting have borrowed a Bush Tv from my son and the whole process you have described works a treat , have an RF monitor myself andIf they have CEC it should work no matter how old they are. I have a 2009 and a 2010 tv and it works on both of those fine.
Try different hdmi ports, different cables, double check settings on the fire stick and the tv ? dont know wat else to say really.
