Configuration: Standard Remote Verified Purchase
I cannot get the Fire TV stick to play 5.1 Digital Audio over my AV Receiver, even though I checked over the specks and other reviews here to confirm that it would before purchasing. The Fire TV stick connects to one of my AV Receiver's HDMI ports fine and I pick up the video signal. However, no sound, not even stereo sound, is heard over my 5.1 speakers. The only way I can hear anything is to turn up the volume on the TV itself, which kind of defeats the purpose of trying to watch via my AV Receiver and 5.1 home cinema speakers. What is also really strange is the stereo comes through to my TV speakers via my AV Receiver, but still nothing comes over the home cinema speakers?? I have gone through all the audio settings and fond some 'possible solutions' on Amazon support forums for this 'known problem' but none of them have worked. I then called Amazon Fire TV support and they confirmed that they don't have a fix for it at the moment and I will have to just make do with the audio via my TV speakers in the meantime! So, at the end of the day, all I can say is a bit fat. "BOOOOOO!" to this... Not impressed! :-(

This is an excellent, reliable and compact option for TV streaming. The menu is reasonable and includes favourites and recently watched, making it easy to return to previous films, series etc. I have had no issues with it turning itself off or 'crashing', although you will need a strong Wi-fi signal to get the best experience. One point to note is that the stick can get pretty hot so always worth turning off. Holding down the 'home' button will bring up a menu to 'sleep' the fire stick if turning it off at the plug each time requires you, like me, to be an expert 'Twister' player to reach behind your TV and get to a socket without knocking the TV over.
The remote is nice and small with a good quality feel to it and works from a better distance than my Sony TV remote. The whole thing is very portable so is an excellent option for holidays etc (although note it only works in certain countries).

I purchased this a little less than a month ago and I have to say I am extremely pleased. Previously I had a chromecast therefore I was reluctant to go for the Fire TV Stick however this device is vastly superior to the chromecast. The main apps I use are Plex, Kodi, SkyGo and Amazon prime video and I have not had a single problem with this device.

Pro's
- It comes with a remote with an excellent range (I was not a fan of having to use my phone with chromecast),
-The ability to load android apps onto the device
-How the device is linked to my amazon prime account
-The device is a great size to hide behind the TV.
-The availability of apps (Use it as an airplay receiver for my phone and laptop, cancelled my Sky multiroom by using Skygo).

Cons
-Not 4K Ready (Go for the amazon fire TV if this is a major concern)
-I had some trouble connecting to a 5GHZ network however it works perfectly fine on 2.4GHZ

What a great gadget, yes I know it's an Amazon site and Amazon product, but the Fire TV stick has really hit the spot in our house.
After discovering to my annoyance that the 'ITV Hub' was nowhere to be seen on my expensive Panasonic Tv or for that matter the Xbox, I looked for a low cost and easy to use solution.

Fire TV stick has been just that... was installed in 20 min (OK, I'm quite into Technology, but it was genuinely easy, lug and play (not pray!)
the key pont being that it has ALL the main catch-up TV/streaming channels ready to be installed as standard..(you do need to download them o the stick once it's set up on your WiFi, but that really did not take long.

The performance is good, with screens looking sharp and the download steady (even on our rather ropey internet signal). You should ideally connect it to a USB power plug, as it does work best with its own power feed, Amazon include the cable but not the charger plug).
You can also download an app for your Apple or Android phone/tablet to act as a remote - though the physical remote it comes with is fine if basic.

As a final flourish, I have since found that you can download other 3rd party streaming apps on the stick that give you access to many more sites and your own pictures and video's if you have a home server of some kind). For £35 (at the time I bought it) it seems great value, there is no subscription to pay (though if you do pay for Amazon Prime, you get access to all those shows and films as well as the other Amazon benefits like free delivery).

Extremely disappointed with this product !!!! Haven't even had it a year and has not been working for last two months on either of my TV's despite trying all the suggested fixes on line. Tried to return but came up that it wasn't eligible - so clearly this product is not under warranty either like normal electrical products for a year. Not only have I lost the cost of purchase of this I paid for Prime so I could view programmes on it - so will now not be renewing that either. Would Caution strongly against purchasing this product as Amazon not providing a year warrantee and looking on line there are a lot of other people who have had the same problems.
