Amazon Fire TV has NO sound

Amazon Fire TV has NO sound

I just bought the fire tv and have it connected with HDMI to the tv.  I'm wondering now if the Comcast cable box is somehow my problem.  I've tried to connect this directly into my receiver and no picture so I go back to hooking it up to the tv.  But can't figure out the audio problem.  Am I going to have to use another cable for sound?   The only thing left to use is a USB connection on the fire tv.  Got me...

I finally figured it out.  Went on Youtube and someone had the problem fixed there. Hook up the HDMI from fire tv to receiver input HDMI then took 2nd HDMI fro optput to TV.  Works like a charm from there.  Thanks

Try the USB. But in no case will it connect to the cablebox, it must connect directly to your TV.

I had to use audio cables for my blu Ray.  I connect them into the tuner for sound and there's no USB on the receiver.

Have you tried asking Amazon, since it has nothing to do with Comcast
