using direct tv and fire tv

My daughter bought me a Fire tv for Mothers Day and I have direct tv. I've connected my Direct TV to my Fire tv and it works great. HOWEVER, I can no longer get a signal to my remote Direct TV box in my bedroom or on my smart phone. What can I do?

Very strange as unplugging the HDMI cable from the old TV and plugging it into a new TV shouldn't effect any other TV or the streaming app.
