Fire Stick wont remote connect

I am in my home with a Tablo, a fire stick and a laptop. I have set up port forwarding on an TP-link Archer. I have a reserved/static IP for Tablo.

My laptop has the remote connect checkbox but the fire stick does not. (that’s odd) The fire stick shows “paired.”

If I reconnect my laptop to a different WIFI (cell phone hotspot) remote connect works. If I test the remote connect on the fire stick it will not work. I have rebooted everything cleared the data and cache on the fire stick.

In checking with Tablo they told me my Muticast was disabled and I now have IPTV/VLAN enabled. This is all foreign to me.

any more ideas??
