This'll play Amazon Video, which a Now TV box won't, so if you want Now TV, Netflix and Amazon Video all on one box this is one way to do it.

Bought one the other day when it was Amazon DOTD. Couldn't get it to send digital audio to my HDMI AV receiver, even when turning auto audio off. So it's going back.

I have one and yes it does, however layout and look of the app is very plain and cheap looking tbh. I prefer to use it on the PS3.

Tried that but all they could offer was to repurchase and return original. Crap customer service.

Chromecast is such a god for what it is. I've the 2nd gen Chromecast and it links to my audio fantastically. Arc or niec or whatever you want to call it. Audio via TV to my sound system. Also let's my TV remote control sound on the soundbsr, control Chromecast and obviously the TV. All natively from 1 remote over a simple HDMI lead.


My RasPlex supportered the same features, but was infuriatingly buggy. Chromecast just does it.

i would suggest you start the returns process for the first one you purchased at the higher price. Then reorder at the lower price. When the second delivery arrives use this as the return item. Hey presto, you have got the new lower price and still only set up one device. I do this EVERY time I spot something I purchased has come down on price within two weeks of buying it.

No. There isn't a Kodi build for Roku.

Nope, the Roku was bought to replace a CC that does exactly the same. Sticking to the old Xbox 360, which works perfectly.

How do you avoid returns costs for that?

Of course - why on earth would I say it if I wasn't sure? I've done it myself. The reviews you mention are well out of date, as you'd see if you looked! Please make a little bit of effort yourself before implying, hopefully inadvertantly and without thinking, that others are either ignorant or lying.

Yo'd be better to order a replacement on no-rush or scheduled day delivery, then argue your case with Amazon customer service - you might have to communicate two or three times, but they've always seen sense in the end in my experience, then you can cancel your second order. That's surely a lot less hassle and cheaper for everyone concerned than having to go to the trouble of re-ordering and returning. HTH.

I've used it in the Roku Stick, and found that the app is fine - there's something to be said for plain! And, once you've started playing something you won't be seeing the app anyway! I prefer playing Amazon stuff that way than using the Amazon Me, Me, Me interface on their Fire devices.

Calm down dear. I obviously did look but reading 1594 reviews looked quite a formidable task, which was why I asked the question on here rather than believe some of the made up reviews on Amazon. I really can't see why you are being so aggressive, it was an innocent question about the box not your integrity. Sorry if I offended you.

Bing patronising doesn't square much with your supposed apology, unless passive aggression is your schtick. You didn't ask the question you implied you asked - you asked if I was sure - of course I'm blinking sure! Rather than being lazy about it and casting aspersions you could simply have done your own research if you doubted what I said - perhaps by finding the page linked to by oUkTurkey, rather than making an excuse about the number of reviews, reviews that are sortable by date and capable of being searched, by anyone willing to make a bit of effort of their own.

No loss to me chummy. As for your last jibe, that's demonstrably untrue.

Back to the topic, i decided on the roku streaming stick and bought it on saturday, and it is great. No need for my now tv box and my youview box for netflix and no need to buy a fire stick for prime.

I have also linked my wuaki and sky store accounts so have my uv library available on my tv rather than on my laptop etc.

Great gadget.

I bought a chromecast at first, but returned when i read on the box there was no remote.

I'd like to buy a roku 3 for the headphone jack when there's a good deal on them.
