programing remote

I purchased a fire stick so I can get Disney+. My cable remote won't let me change the TV input. Will I need to use the TV remote for that or can I program my cable remote for that?

My cable remote lets me change the input.

There appear to be two sets of instructions; the one you use depends on whether you have an X1 box or not.

X1 Box remote instructions

Non-X1 Box remote instructions

If you have an X1 remote and your tv needs an ok acknowledgement from the remote to change inputs, you’ll need either the actual tv remote or do it manually on your tv. Some tvs don’t need an ok push
