what it is..

I have a Amazon Firestick paired with an old Samsung TV in a small gym room and recently bought a Monoprice SB-300 Soundbar to make the sound bearable.
I searched, and couldn't find anything, short of a few reddits that attempted to use a blaupunkt sound bar as the device.

I saw this thread seeking something similar, but apparently a Fire TV is RF (I have a Firestick that's IR)

You can get to a menu where you can input a custom 4/5 digit IR profile, however in my googling, I can't seem to find any open source database that you can search to correlate NEC raw data to those IR profile codes.

I setup an arduino w/ a IR receiver and captured all the button presses on the remote.. I think all the fire stick will do is input/power/volume.

Attached is output using the IRremote library (slightly modified to remove redundant info):

Pic of the remote (for some reason I can't attach an image):

Currently I have the fire stick connected to the soundbar on hdmi1 and the sound bar to the TV via the ARC HDMI, which works but it takes like 2 minutes for the fire stick to boot and then I have to keep pressing home on the fire stick remote to get the HDMI input on the sound bar to toggle .

I'd like to just go back to having the fire stick on the TV and use an optical cable to the sound bar to speed things up ( while having the fire stick remote power everything & control volume).

The fire stick takes around two minutes to load up, and I have to continually pushing the home button on the fire stick remote in order to select the HDMI input on the sound bar. At the moment, I have the fire stick linked to the soundbar on HDMI1 and the sound bar to the TV via ARC HDMI.
