Thanks!
I connected it directly to the TV.

You might have to notch out the mount to fit the HDMI depending on your setup.

I still have the BluRay player.

I have two FireStick for both TV's

I know your not asking me, but Firestick is pretty easy. It plugs into the HDMI slot on your side/rear of the TV; it has a power cord which I plug into an outlet with a short extension, under the table. Easy/peasy! When we decided to get satellite few months back, we bought the DishNetwork Tailgater at Camping World on sale, which included the Walley receiver, around $325 I believe...then we removed the mount around the DVD player exposing the satellite pigtail underneath. We plugged in the Walley, called Dish and were up and running with DishNetwork phone support. If I had an HDMI splitter, I could have left the DVD connected, reassembled the mount, and put the Walley on the mount/shelf above. Likely will add this later, but with Firestick we can pretty much get any movie we want on line anyway...without carrying extra discs...

Don't you need wifi for fire stick? Are you using camp wifi or your own hot spot. Just curious. If your own hot spot, how much data does that require?

Yes, you need wifi; we use our cell phones as hotspot when we get a strong signal. No booster yet, but will look at the Forum recommendations later this spring on that upgrade.

It is best to download the movies you want to watch onto your computer or phone from Netflix when at home, then play them back on the road and you won't have to use data from a hotspot cell service. A lot cheaper way to go and no expense to do this.
