Because this denon is such an old (2004) model, it predates hdmi connectivity and does not support the firestick directly.
What you'd need to do is connect the firestick to your tv via hdmi,

then run a separate optical (fiber optic) cable from the tv's "digital audio out" port back to the denon.

Try plugging into the opt2 port on the denon, and then setting the denon to the dvd source mode and let me know if that works for you.
