Whether you want to simply watch shows on a large screen or give a presentation, the Amazon Firestick is a superb solution for displaying content on a projector.
In this post we’ll show you how to connect the Amazon Firestick to almost any projector. We’ll also cover some considerations you’ll need to make when using this type of setup.
In This Guide
1. HDMI Connection
Check to see if you have an HDMI port on the projector. If you do, you can simply connect the Firestick to the HDMI port and a power source. From there, you can begin using it just as you would if it was connected to a TV.
If your projector is older and does not have an HDMI port, you will need to purchase an adapter that will convert the HDMI connection on the Firestick to a connection supported by your projector.
2. Audio Connection
Most projectors have a speaker built into them. Once you’ve connected the Firestick to the projector, audio will be routed to the projector along with the video.
The Firestick supports Bluetooth audio. So, if you would like to utilize a wireless Bluetooth speaker, it’s easy to connect the Firestick to it.
If you’re looking to use a wired speaker, you will likely be able to utilize the audio out ports on the projector to connect the projector to the wired speaker.
3. Using the Remote
It can be a bit strange using the Firestick remote with a projector, because you will need to aim the remote at the Firestick plugged into the projector instead of the screen for it to work. This is something to keep in mind when deciding the placement of your projector.
Sometimes, a strategically placed mirror can solve this problem.
4. Ensure Input is Set Correctly
Your projector probably has multiple HDMI ports as well as many other types of ports that can be utilized to input video. Ensure the projector is set to the input port (HDMI 1, HDMI 2, etc) that your Firestick is connected to.
