S class
Amazon Fire Stick

Iíve been told that if I install the Amazon Fire Stick into the USB port that it will enable me watch TV through the Interface.
Please advise if this is the case.

Many thanks,
GM.

Firestick provides its video ONLY via HDMI connector. USB cable is used ONLY to supply electrical power to the firestick.

Installed this over the weekend, and it works like a charm. Video obviously is through the HDMI port, and power is supplied through the USB port. Just need to get a significantly shorter USB cable to ensure things do not rattle in the closed compartment. The only problem is, the new stick is quad-core, and it gets warm very fast. Normally this would not be a problem, but within the closed space where the HDMI port is, it sadly is. Not sure whether it will be a problem or not though...
