On your TV, you will see a button for INPUT -- Press that button until the TV goes to the HDMI port with the Firestick

Now, press the remote button and it should show up.

I am not sure what you mean by RCN remote but you can try pressing that INPUT button a couple of times to see if it cycles through the inputs
