Kodi.... when it works
Bought to try Kodi and I have a prime account so if nothing else I can use it for that , wasn't paying £80 but this is not bad

I have never had a problem with my Amazon TV running Kodi, which bit doesn't work for you?

If kodi doesn't work for you its more than likely your internet providor is blocking the content, sky are notorious at doing this plus if you have online virus and child safe protection from your provider this also blocks the streams so get it turned off. Kodi works brilliant on both my fire tv stick & box.

Works great for me, touch wood. Didn't work that well on the Chinese android boxes I had previously, but far more stable with the Fire box.
Kodi itself is fine, it's the plugins.....ya get me

Is it possible to use Proxies on the firestick?

Hey paulandpam1, which addons do you use? I've recently installed Kodi with the view of trying out addons and Genesis is the one that keeps coming up. Is there any other one that you would recommend? Thank you.

Pheonix is another popular one
With all the new users to Kodi, really cant see the top 10 addons being free for much longer tbh
Which box is better the roku3 or this one.

I wouldn't rely to much on Genesis, its no longer been supported and a lot of the links are dead

As Mike said Phoenix is excellent (Rockcrusher for Movies)

Kodi!? What is this 90's garbage

DNS smart proxies are easy to setup on a firestick if you want to watch US Netflix etc and other geo blocked content Pandora etc. but if your isp is blocking the streams because of pirated content you will need a VPN but you will have to install this on your router.

Yes Genesis ,Phoenix and Primewire/1channel are all popular.
Try installing a custom build such as the beast or Andys build that has loads of plugins already set up and have a browse around it to find what works on your internet providors connection.

Beast Build on my Amazon TV is great, Phoenix and More Power are good add ons too. Genesis has gone down the pan recently but was up there.
Personally I don't bother with builds anymore
Just use the basic Confluence skin + ~ 6 favourite addons

Navi-X alone has been plenty for me
This only plays 4k at 30Hz due to it's HDMI 1.4 ports.

This.
Genesis doesn't work/isn't supported anymore. Try Stream All The Sources (SALTS).

Reasons why not to buy the new 4K Fire TV:

1) No TOSlink port - optical audio to cinema amp no longer possible
2) No bluetooth controller support.
3) 4k support limited to 30Hz as it's HDMI 1.4
Would love to be able to use the NBC sports extra live (all premier league games) on kodi but with us being UK and no log in can't get it working did a few different things I found on the web to no avail

But as pointed out this is a great piece of kit for kodi. It blows my jail broken apple TV out of water

1) Dont use it.
2) My BT keyboard connects fine.
3) Dont have a 4K TV and very little 4K content out there anyway.

Genesis still works perfectly for me as my isp isn't blocking it yet.

Then try installing something like blackbox or the beast. Sure you have to put in some leg work for some channels, but combine this with prime, netflix and plex. It is the most superior player I have had. Saying that I am tempted for the Nividia Shield but I here thats overkill. Still want it lol

I had the Shield TV but sold it and got the Fire TV 4K.For what you pay £64 this is best box to have for all the features.There is very little difference in kodi between the boxes speedwise.
Can't get SALTS to find decent playable streams most of the time, and yes unfortunately Genesis is good tying worse each week.
thanks OP now i need a good 4k tv dam

Genesis is a piece of crap, there are plenty videos on YouTube showing you other add-ons dedicated to film/tv, you'll more than likely bump into my channel on your journey ;-)
payed £64.99 less then amonth ago,i want my pound back lol

Bought mine boxing day absolutely love it, used the 30 day prime trial will prob subscribe to it now, It's replaced my Wd live as well its so much faster.

Use the Wd live as my Dlna server with the hard drives plugged and set up the windows share, the Kodi plugins are a bonus for me to watch the weekends footy.

Bought this and a nice box with 'ok' prime features. Kodi is very hit and miss, Genesis used to be good but nearly all links are dead. Will try other addons but I find a lot of stuff just not working..
What's frustrating is I use this for Netflix and it will not stream 4k content from the fire TV box! It's 4k supported device so I expected it to. Netflix support blames it on unstable connection but that's not the case. I have 152MB connection and installing Netflix on my Samsung smart TV the 4k content is there straight away so it's the fire TV..
OK for £60 though
Annoyingly this doesn't have 4k Youtube. I've seen some reports that say it does, but it definitely doesn't.

Thought I'd best mention in case anyone purchased it for that
If your looking for kodi install instructions so a search for Mr Craigs video channel on YouTube. Really easy to follow.
can someone give me a list of the decent plugins/addons for kodi as I have been pretty unimpressed so far with most of the "builds"
