Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I would like to try and assist. When you are on the HDMI input, does it stay on that input? Do you see the firestick?

It seems to stay on that input, but I see that my brother may have manually created the "firestick" input. I better get help to make sure it is in the right HMDI port

Also there is a HD local tv attena connected to the tv via cable

When I go to TV Menu, Channel, TV source = Cable or Antenna
So it may not be recognizing the HDMI?

It seems it isn't recognizing the HDMI. Can you tell me if you have more than one HDMI input?

Is the power to the amazon firestick plugged in?

Customer: replied 27 days ago.
There is 2 HMDI ports - firestick is plugged in to power

OK. Please try plugging it into the other HDMI input and select that source. Let me know if that works.
