While kicking back and trying to enjoy some tube, I was prompted with this message on my Fire TV that said “We can’t detect your remote”. Unfortunately, my genuine Amazon remote was lost and I was using a universal remote with my Fire TV. Nothing I on my remote tried would let me bypass this message. How, oh how do I bypass this message?
If you have an older analog CRT Television that isn’t a smart TV and doesn’t have an HDMI connection, you can still use the Amazon Fire TV device with it. All you need is an adapter to make fire TV work with any older, non-HDMI TV. Use these steps to connect a Fire TV Stick or box to an old analog CRT TV.
