I would rather not give phone number, thanks

Ok perfect! We've located the problem! Your HDCP is getting in the way. Replace both HDMI cables with High Speed HDMI cables, and the HDCP should go away.

Please rate 3-5 stars for my service today.

can you buy those cables anywhere? fire stick plugs directly into HDMI port so will just need to replace the one on the dtv box right?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I would give you 5 stars...I was ready to buy a new tv LOL

The fire stick should be fine, just replace the one for your recorder, and you should be good to go. You can get these cables at any electronics store.
