I have two hauppauges, they are meant for windows or apple computers not androids, see the instructions, recommended operating systems, unless I'm mistaken or if you have some new model that works on android, if that's the case then I apologize.

Before you can record you should be Able to watch a picture through the system.
Your problem may be fire tv has hdmi output and the adapter for input to the Hauppauge was designed or rca jacks.
They make an audio video (rca) adapter designed for vcr play to the device as its in a usb port on a computer.

Maybe you should try and rout everything that way. Aso read your manual and or call the support line, they helped me out once and were very nice and professional about it.
