Good spot, heat. Also in Argos at same price. Don't forget Quidco/TCB.

Can anybody tell me how easy it is to stream from PC to TV? I assume it works wirelessly?

What do you have to do at TV end/ PC end?

Could an old frat 55YO do it?

Yes

Thanks. 2 seconds I don't have though..

Are these good for rom emulators and is the official controller compatible?

Hope Amazon price match ( vouchers to use )

That's a pretty good deal, very tempted.

Plex may be the easiest option for you - as it will transcode to something playable if needed.
You install the server part on your computer & the client on your device plugged into the TV.
Plex is well supported & tons of guides on the internet.

Does this box come with the game controller?

Price has dropped on Amazon too now. Also for the controller (£33.99). Ordered both for gf's kids the other day so on chat with Amazon to try and get difference back.

​yes. iirc Curry's have a 28 day pricing policy. If they change the price you can request the difference back.

Sorry I should have mentioned it was Argos rather than Curry's.

Does this box come with the game controller?


no

Box contents: - Amazon Fire TV HD Smart TV Box
- Amazon Fire TV remote
- AC power cable
- Quick start guide

the controller is £33 on Amazon - there are alternatives - I have the Xiaomi Wireless Bluetooth Gamepad - bought for £13 last Dec from Gearbest!

good deal - the 8gb is measly though. It can be increased easily using the USB.

Got a £10 off voucher a few weeks ago for Argos hopefully it hasn't expired.

was wanting to upgrade my excellent sticks but don't think i can justify it at this price. The stick's are simply amazing little thing running Kodi and all the amazon apps.

Have ordered from amazon. Don't mind getting it after Xmas just ordered from amazon due to better customer service

great bit of kit well worth it and miles better than the stick, its very quick no locking up like the stick and i have both kodi and spmc on this so 2 kodi which is very handy.

For those who own a PS4, you can connect the PS4 controller to the Fire TV, works flawlessly for me.

Any advantage of upgrading to this if you have the old fire tv but no 4K?

Great price, looks like it may be able to be rooted as well. Order with Prime Now and should be here in 2 hours!

This or Roku 4? Roku for headphone socket on remote, Now TV compatibility and better spec than Roku 3 but how long do we wait for it to arrive in UK?

i have the original ftv - installing Kodi is fairly straightforward....but I like to use a plugin called Ares in Kodi so you can use a prepared 'build'

and here: seo-michael.co.uk/tut…di/

i'm loving the freespirit build. good selection here of Ares builds here: Best Kodi Builds 2017 - they take the pain out of keeping it updated....worth a look

Couldn't you just download the MS remote desktop app from the play store and remote into your pc, bingo?

My current fav build is FreeSpirit - but I think thats only available for Kodi 16.1 (Kodi now on V17.0). good luck and merry Christmas to you too....

Same price as Amazon

Great find. Any thoughts on this vs Roku 3 for ease of use, services available etc? Not bothered by Now TV.

heat. been umming about a refurb to replace a flaky android box. Top stuff. reserved

Banned
