It can’t change your normal TV channels. The remote is only used when your using the stick (you select the device from your HDMI input just the same as you would plug in and choose a PS4). Once thats opened you use the remote to move between apps etc. you can download different channels apps and watch them through the device instead of your normal tv if you want to use just the one remote.

I believe no. Fire TV Stick is unable to change TV channels on my 10 year old LG smart TV. Alexa, on my Echo Show 8, also says it cannot do this. However, my Alexa command will automatically switch on the TV and go to YouTube or Netflix by verbal command.
