How do i get the firestick on my tv screen..set on hdm1 or hdm2 or ? I don't know how to bring it up on the screen?

The TV remote has a button for that. Input Select or Source or SEL. However simply turning off anything except the firestick should make it work. I presume the firestick came with a remote. Simply turning it off and on from that should do it. Make sure you can see the firestick when you press the buttons.

My remote for my wii game doesn't work. can't get the lights to stay on.

You need to re sync the controller by pushing the reddish button on the front of the Wii and then the sync button in the battery compartment on the controller.

2nd Wii remote not recognised when reconnecting to add player 2 on Donkey Kong. Player 2 LED comes on when resync completes but goes off when game starts.

You said when if the game starts the controller goes off.try holding the sync button on the wii console for 15-20 seconds then resync all controllers.If it doesn't work try this:Start the donkey kong game then press the home button then go to the wii remote settings it has an icon of a remote then after you enter it find the reconnect then press 1-2 simultaneously to select who is the first player.If it doesn't work try resynchronizing it as the first controller.Hope this helps.
