I just purchased a new Vizio 70in 4K smart tv and a firetv4k.
i followed the instructions for setting up the firetrap, the gray screen came up displaying firetv then it went blank with broken music playing in the background! Any ideas what is going on or how to fix it?

I have a Vizio Fire enabled TV and I tried to use the Vizio implementation of the Fire TV experience; however, it is brain dead and does not support DVR and other Fire Stick features. My 4K stick works beautifully with my Vizio smart TV (Fire enabled). Unplug your Fire Stick and start your TV. Place your stick in an HDMI port and select input on your TV remote and select the HDMI port associated with the fire stick. You may also rename the port to Fire Stick and Blue Ray to be another HDMI port if you have a Blue Ray device. You can even rename your antenna input to be more descriptive if you desire. Using your smart Vizio as a dumb TV with your Fire Stick as your Fire experience should make you a happy camper. I do not use any of the other smart buttons as well without any issues. After using the Fire TV within the TV, I would never use any smart feature for the main reason that updates to a TV will be much slower and feature deficient when compared to any HDMI plug in device. Keeping TVs until they break (10 + years for my Sony and LG) it is much cheaper to replace a $50 HDMI device than a television.
