Got a fire stick and need to run it through my tivo box as no hmdi on tv. 

Any ideas how to access it once it's plugged in the box?

Thanks for any help.

The HDMI port on TiVo is output only, so it's time to go TV shopping! :-)

Don't be lured in by the promise of a cheap 4K TV quite yet, a Full HD TV will be more than sufficient until the standards for 4K are finalised.

Already being discussed here for another customer:

The standards are due to be finalised in October 2017, so it will be 2018 before it's worth buying a 4k TV
