    Bonjour tout le monde

    You lot tl:dr talking about suppositories and jail breaking and kodi...

    All I wanna know is... Can a Luddite buy a fire stick in Amazon's big sale coming up... And watch Harold Kane spank a sphere past a Mancunian guard for free in HD?

    And why is Mancunian not recognised by my iPad FFS?

    And why does ffs autocorrect to FIFA? And then to puffs? Conspiracy?

    I'm a Luddite and managed to set up the Fire Stick myself following online guides - watch a couple of vids on YouTube and see if it looks like something you could follow, would be my advice

    Let us have an update when it arrives? I'm using a fire stick with Kodi but most of the sources seem to be drying up

    So I got the box and its fantastic. Very quick, can pretty much get any content you want. You are able to watch all 3pm Saturday games which is what i wanted it for. Also has a highlights section where you can watch any game again all 90 odd mins worth

    My Top addons are:

    NJM Soccer - has all the football
    123 Movies - any movie, new old, cinema and TV shows
    Music box - pretty much like spotify but free.

    You can also add pretty much any channel from all over the world. So you can add Italian channels, Israeli, Arabic, french etc etc

    Guys, has all the Kodi stuff gone pear, now?
    seems loads of developers have been shutting stuff down for some time.
    What's everyone's experiences at present?

    It's fine. Using Exodus for Film and TV and getting most stuff at 1080p.

    I don't use XBMC for live Sports so can't help there.

    Why is that better than a Fire TV Stick?

    I'm about to replace my fire TV stick and I'm looking for the best replacement

    I am told the T8 V3 is the best bit of hardware around. This according to some real techy dudes I work with who know their stuff.

    I don't know much about Plex.

    The reviews look good. Where would I get one? I'm not after one pre-loaded with all the Kodi addons, mine will be mostly for legit use.

    Edit:

    Don't worry, I've found it myself. You can't get that model any more, it's been superceded by the V3S. They've essentially just added an SATA bay and upped Android to 5.1

    I have got a T8 v3. Good bit of kit. Also got a cheap box (fully loaded) from this company for my kitchen (search for nosubtv on facebook)they also offer good after sales which is helpful when you arent sure about something

    Crap, only just ordered the Amazon Fire box thingy for £65... Was hoping for Kodi to work...

    Am a Prime member but want to get web functionality on the kit...

    Should I cancel the order?

    (For info; have Now TV and a PS4).

    Kodi works just fine on the Fire TV. I've found auto load to be a bit flakey though.

    For those using Kodi, irrespective of hardware, are you all using v 16 (jarvis) ?
    Exodus has been hit and miss for me.

    Which sources and repos are working well?

    Cheers

    Installed wookie build. Its pretty good and has all the addons you need. Exodus works fine for me.

    123 movies for movies
    Halow TV for sports
    Exodus for TV Shows
