How To Use Firestick With Projector – Easily and Quickly

Connecting a Fire Stick to a projector is a great way to share videos, photos, and TV shows with the people you live with. This blog looks at the different ways you can connect your Fire Stick to a projector and still find the best image.

How To Use Firestick With Projector:

Using a fire stick is really easy and will help you stream content. They are fairly inexpensive and can be found anywhere, depending on the features that you’re looking for. Most people use their Hulu subscription to watch movies, Tv shows, and other streams with their firesticks. It’s best to buy a firestick on amazon or at any other store that sells media devices like Walmart. You can tell if your device is compatible with Amazon Prime by running the serial number of your device on any online amazon search platform.

If you have an HDMI input on the back of your projector then it is possible to connect the Fire Stick to it without needing any additional adapters.  However, if there isn’t enough space on the back of your projector or if there might be something blocking the connection of your Fire Stick with its remote control then using an extension cable may help you fix this problem.

In an ideal world, you’d plug in your projector and be done with it. However, there are some projectors that don’t have HDMI ports so you may need to use an adapter to connect your Fire Stick – AirPlay or Miracast being alternatives. Be aware that if you are using a specific cable set up like short HDMI cables this will not work and will have the opposite effect than you intended. With that in mind, here are the three most common types of inputs to projectors:


This is an old display that used to be found on computer monitors. It’s shaped like a triangle and has 15 small dots.


There are two ports for audio and one for video. Most projectors that come with component video inputs will have three RCA ports for video and two for audio.


This is a long, thin port that receives the output of your Fire Stick. If there’s enough space in the surrounding area, you can connect a Fire Stick directly into this port.

How to Connect a Fire Stick to a Projector:

It is fairly easy to connect a Fire Stick to a projector that doesn’t already have anything plugged in. For instance, here’s how to connect a Fire Stick to a projector:

  1. Connect your Fire Stick to the nearest USB power source or a USB-enabled outlet for it to work properly.
  2. Examine the back of your projector, paying attention to the type of ports available and how much space is available.
  3. You can connect your Fire Stick to an extension cable if you have a space problem. You can also purchase an HDMI extender if that won’t work for you.
  4. Plug the end that is soldered to the USB port of your plug-and-play device into an available USB port on the projector.
  5. On the projector.
  6. Your new Fire Stick is now ready to use with your projector.

The Main Issue With Connecting a Fire Stick to a Projector:

The Amazon Fire Stick has all of the features you are looking for in a device, including the ability to download movies and live-stream in high definition. What’s more, it comes equipped with Dolby Atmos audio output.

The unit is small, looks like a candy bar, and is therefore easy to mount with the projector (under 500$). This doesn’t mean you have to run wires around. This device even comes with its own remote control which can be attached to your audio jack. However, if you happen to lose it, you can still control Fire TV Stick with your regular remote (as we will show in our tutorial). The only hard part of using this is figuring out which interface to use.

External Audio System:

The problem here is that although projectors are incredibly versatile. They’re not necessarily the best choice of display devices when it comes to watching streaming audio/video. The main reason for this is that a projector won’t have its own speakers included. Instead, you may have to choose between the sound being fed through your projector or if there are no onboard speakers then you’ll have to add them yourself.

This is where things could get a little more complicated. The Fire Stick doesn’t work if you want to use the sound of Dolby Atmos. Your surround sound speakers first will need to be connected to your television. If you don’t have a smart TV, no worries. It’s easy enough for you to connect your surround sound speakers directly to your cable box. Which then in turn can transmit the signal to the Fire Stick via the HDMI port.

This is already starting to sound like a lot of work and let’s be honest, it’s not ideal. There are wires involved and for one. The Amazon Fire Stick simply needs some way to deliver sound so that it does not just blast music out of its limited onboard speakers which can get distorted pretty easily.

How do I connect a Fire Stick remote to a projector?

First of all, connect the Fire Stick to a power source and your projector via an available HDMI port or by using an HDMI adapter. Once that is done, navigate with your remote control to select content to stream.


You can connect the Amazon Fire Stick to a projector that has an HDMI port. If your projector does not have an HDMI port, you will need to get a converter from Amazon. It is also recommended that in this scenario, you get an adapter that has an HDMI integration so as to provide the best video presentation quality for your presentation using your amazon fire stick.

Also, keep in mind during the set-up phase that you will need to use a specific FireStick Power Adapter every time an additional extension cord is added to the mix with regard to your FireStick so as not to run into problems with the amount of signal attenuation between it and the overhead projector.
