Connecting Fire 4k stick for audio on X4400h

I’m trying to find a way to get audio to pass through my Denon X4400h when the receiver is off. We have it set up so our cable is passed through now, so I’m not sure if there is only one pass through. We’ve settled on plugging the Fire TV stick into our TV’s HDMI, but that means no stereo unless we plug it back into the 4400. This is my first post here, so I’m not sure if this is the correct place to post this. Please let me know if this is incorrect, and I’ll be happy to move it to the correct area. Thank you very much.


Edit:  welp. Now I'm pissed.  Anytime I adjust the volume on the tv remote it turns on or off the x4400h.  I'm so lost.
