Has anyone got a Kindle Fire Stick and a Kindle HD tablet? if so have you tried screen mirroring your kindle fire tablet screen to the TV using the stick? Does it work well? I have a kindle fire tablet so thinking about getting the fire stick only if it enables me to do screen mirroring. I don't want to waste my money if it does not work that well. If you are not sure what it is here is a link for it: www.amazon.co.uk/Amazon-W87CUN-Fire-TV-Stick/dp/B00KAKUN3E
Shop Fire TV Stick on Kindle Store in UK. Amazon Fire TV Stick is a streaming media player with a dual-core processor, up to 1080p HD, certified Dolby Audio, and more | Free Delivery in UK

I have a small 7inch Fire tablet. I have not tried the screen mirroring as of yet. Cant at this time as my son is watching something but will try later and see how it goes. I do not have the Fire stick. I am still learning this lil tablet but I am way pleased with it. It was on sale for 39 dollars here.

@TiarasOceanView It mentions a fling button that shows up when screen mirroring is possible so guessing it might be.

I try to wait to buy things until they have had time to work all the bugs out. And, the prices usually goes down a bit also. Good luck to you!

I might try it and see if it does not work the way I like I can return it...I think.

Never tried it, I have a Samsung tablet and TV and theoretically it is possible but our TV has WiFi and access to many streaming apps.

I don't have a smart tv downstairs so wanted something cheap that could enable screen mirroring.

@gudheart I know. There are still many new TVs sold without Internet. But for older TVs is is perhaps the only way to go.

You can "fling" your Kindle's screen to the Fire TV stick if the Kindle model supports Second Screen. I think the HD lineup supports it on the 8 and 10 inch models... doesn't seem to be an option on the HD 6.

I usually control my Fire TV Stick from my Kindle. It basically turns the Kindle into a giant remote.
