    Unfortunately, it doesn't work nearly as well for NFL games

    Need some help here. Lately I have noticed that I am unable to pull up certain movies in Exodus. For example, I cannot find Logan, Rogue One and Doctor Strange, all of which were there before. Anyone else having this same problem?

    Weird, I pulled up Doctor Strange just fine last night through Exodus, I'd check the date on your box if you notice it's only recent movies you're missing, that's a common issue I usually see when recent movies aren't shown.

    For anyone trying to install Kodi on a firestick this is the easiest way ever.

    I just bought my fire stick about a week ago and it's so slow when I use Kodi.

    I'm thinking about getting the fire tv box. I think it's supposed to be faster.

    I am finally at the point where I need to update my Fire Stick
    Now. The person who originally set it up is long gone.
    Now - Do I need an Amazon account to update it? (It is telling me the account is not up to date)
    Anyone got any instructions etc?

    Sorry for the bump. Had to update my fire stick and lost Kodi in the process. Before I put it back on, is Kodi still the best home brew? It was losing developers left and right before I updated. Is there a new os that’s better?

    To be honest, I haven't really used Kodi lately after subscribing to IPTV service since the service I use includes on demand movies and most TV shows

    Update to the KODI Beast Build. I occasionally have trouble connecting to very, very few servers ( I wanna watch Molly's Game but cannot conect to any freaking server) but the Beast Build is amazeballs. It pretty much puts EVERYTHING on there for you. Also, look for the March update. SO much new stuff on the App to mess with. I watched the Darkest Hour 2 weeks ago via a 1080p stream and it was so clear is was amazing. It looked like 4K.

    Recently got a Fire Stick, Amazon Echo, and harmony Hub. Went onto YouTube and found very good instructions from a youtuber called Electronics M.D. Loaded Terrarium TV with the YesPlayer and Kodi 18 with the Wonderbox 18.0 Alpha 1 build. Both work great. Especially like using Alexa commands to start up the FireStick.

    If I was closer to the router I'd probably add a dongle that allows you to connect direct to the router but most times I get fast enough Wi-Fi in the main room.

    Can you link the video?


    Are there 4k movies in this build?

    I bought a fire tv today and I’m trying to figure out how to stream 4k Blu-ray.

    Sorry, I had his name wrong... its Electrical M.D. Here's one of his videos, but he does many so might want to subscribe to his channel. btw, I use the 4K Kodi but I dn't have a 4K TV or receiver. No issues watching on non-4K.

    Thanks I’ve been at it for like 3 hours now. I’ll watch a video for 20 minutes then one little thing will be off or I can’t find a file and it won’t work and I’ll have to start with a new video. Getting pretty frustrated lol. I just did a factory reset to start from scratch.

    Hang in there... the most important to type in the file source correctly... after that its mostly click on things to complete the build. He at least puts the entire file source name on the screen so its easy to stop the video to enter it.

    Here's another video by mchanga... she is pretty straightforward in her instructions. She seems to be staying on Kodi 17.6 since there have been issues (mine seems to work fine though... I had both builds for a while).
