My remote did sow up with instructions on a narrow folded booklet. I followed the "if this remote is in addition to the remote that came originally", and the setup routine provided step-by-step instructions to pair the new remote with both the Fire stick and my Samsung TV. Basics were to use old remote to go to "Settings" and then "controllers & Bluetooth devices", then "Amazon Fire TV Remotes", then "Add New Remote". Next you push the home button on the new remote for 10 seconds until it flashes rapidly to show it's ready to pair. You'll see the new remote listed (the only tricky part was realizing the listing of "Amazon Fire Remote" was the new one, not the old one). Select that and it'll tell you to wait for a minute, after which it asks you if you want to pair with your TV too. In my case it successfully detected my Samsung TV, asked me if this was correct, then confirmed power and volume worked. Whole thing was done in about 3-4 minutes. see less I have the 2nd gen Fire TV stick and bought this generation remote to get the TV power and volume controls.

Answer:
I can confirm that this remote works with the nvidia shield as of update 7.2.1. When pairing, you will need the nvidia or other remote to select the remote and tell it to pair. The amazon remote comes up as "AR" on the bluetooth pariing screen. Volume controls also work!!

I was so hoping someone noticed the same thing I was reading. Because I got both of my kids in here, just to make sure I wasn't mis reading something!! I'm confused as well.

Im having to get a new remote because it got stepped on or something, but also something wet inside the back, well the only buttons that works on the remote is the power button, the volume button, mute button and that's it. So we thought about the batteries, changed them to brand new ones, and it is still doing the same thing. So I said I am just going to get another remote. Got to reading the compatability section on this remote, and I am extremely confused. This remote shown, is the exact same one we have now. So I don't have a clue! My son just looked up the model number and all off the remote we have and it pulled up...(brand: ALLMITY... replacement voice remote control L5B83H 2AN7U-5463... fit for Amazon 2nd generation Fire TV Cube and Fire TV stick, 1st generation Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick 4k, & 3rd generation Amazon Fire TV (2nd gen)...... see less I was so hoping someone noticed the same thing I was reading.

Answer:
I don't think it can. You would need a smart outlet, plug your tv in that, link the outlet to Alexa, then she can turn off/on the outlet to turn off/on your tv or lamp. One caveat is by turning on the smart outlet, it only allows electricity to transmit through....not all tv's will turn on automatically thereafter. I h… see more I don't think it can.

One caveat is by turning on the smart outlet, it only allows electricity to transmit through....not all tv's will turn on automatically thereafter. I have 2 Samsung tv's, older model seems to turn on with the smart outlet, whereas the newer model I would still need to use the remote to turn on after the outlet is activated (but I can still tell Alexa to turn both off/cutting power). Still really cool. see less I don't think it can. You would need a smart outlet, plug your tv in that, link the outlet to Alexa, then she can turn off/on the outlet to turn off/on your tv or lamp.

Answer:
You can use the firestick remote for all options now. Instead of looking for one remote for volume/mute. Its convenient to have all on one remote. This also works with my sound bar I have connected to my tv.

Answer:
If you use a separate receiver as part of a home entertainment system it may not control the receiver volume...it's desinged to control a TV or a TV with attached soundbar.
