Firestick updated now detected as Apple TV!

This is doing my head in. After the recent updates to the 4K firestick it is now being detected by my mothers 2020 TU8000 as an Apple TV.
Anyone else had this issue?
I've tried different ports, one will just say unknown device, HDMI CEC on and off, unplug, replug, power off, power on.
Messed with the firestick TV settings, NOTHING works. 

This is just crazy.
 I'm not factory resetting the TV. Samsung's backup is useless, I still have to re-enter all my login details for all the TV apps and that takes far too long.

As a result because of this nonsense I cannot get the remote to control the Firestick. 

I dont get this issue on my 2019 Samsung TV.

Same here. Tried everything I could find on line. Hard restart of TV and stick. Different HDMI ports. No joy. Stick works fine on all other TVs in house.

Mine was detected as Apple TV. It’s now detected as a Sky Box.

Ok , hope this helps, I have a gen 2 fire TV box and the TV scans and finds it as an Amazon device, so what I did was after its found it I turned off the TV took out the hdmi cable of the fire TV box and then put in the stick 4k max and turned it on , the TV remembered and it stayed as an Amazon device.
