My Question or Issue

I have 4 Sticks at my home for my family and they have all Device names like "kitchen", "living room", "kids room", "bedroom".

It is not possible for the Amazon FireTV-stick to aquire the device name of the FireTV-stick and just calls every stick the same name "Amazon FireTV stick Gen 2".


This is a mess, because if I want to hear music in the kitchen I need to connect to every device to see, if it is the "kitchen"-stick. When my wife or kids watch netflix, I always interrupt them just because I'm trying to find the right device.


Could you please fix this Bug, which I have atleast for 5 years now?
