Longshot for sure.

I have a Hauppage video capture card in a Win7X64 box. This card works flawlessly with DirectTV after putting it through a simple splitter to decode the encrypted signal, DTV input, 2 outputs: TV + capture card. I've been trying to do the same by swapping the DTV input for my Firestick, which always shows up as "no signal" when the capture program is running. I've even replaced the splitter for one that's "been tested to work" since mine was > 8 years old. Nothing but a black screen and the no signal message. Is there something that needs to be done on the FS? Mine's a Gen II that's about 4 yrs old...

TIA!
