Is anyone else having issues with casting to the fire stick? I have to restart the Fire stick every time to get it to work? Did I get a dud?

The power cable for the Fire Stick is ridiculously short. It's making me so angry. How is anyone with a mounted tv supposed to reach a power bar on the floor with this piece of garbage?!!! Aghh!!!!
LOL I agree
Since it's a std micro usb cable you can buy longer length cables if required.
I tried using the USB port behind my TV as well but I wasn't sure if that was a good idea. Seemed to work though...

Use a HDMI Female to HDMI Female Adapter Coupler. Plug the Firestick to the power bar on the floor and use this on one end of the Firestick and use another hdmi cable to the TV.

Any difference quality wise in the AmazonBasics vs VCE?

Instead of a coupler + hdmi cable, I bought a single male to female HDMI extension cable:

Which launcher works best for the Firestick 4K?
The default launcher sucks if you're not a Prime user.

screen mirroring is in the settings, go to Display & Sound and enable Display Mirroring. You can also just hold down the home button on the remote and it will bring up some options.

If people want to use a wired internet connection you could use this, and if you add a usb hub you can hook up a mouse, keyboard, usb stick. etc.

Look on YouTube for videos explaining how to load it. It has to be side loaded. It's not officially on Amazon store... Might void warranty... Not sure. I decided not to install... Using VLC which connects to my raspberri pi
