That one is $32 and the fire stick has been as low as £14, normally £25, so hardly expensive.

If the chip doesn't support hardware accelerated H.265 then the CPU will have to do the decoding. H.265 is very intensive for a low power chip like what's in the Fire Stick and the amlogic devices. Good news is that the S805 and S812 support H.265 hardware decoding up to a certain resolution/FPS, etc.

i dont have a time machine so i cant get the fire stick for £14 and … i dont have a time machine so i cant get the fire stick for £14 and you can get that stick for £20 with a voucher sorry for trying to help the original poster


You don't have a time machine and I can't read your mind for vouchers. Haha. Trying to help also, no point buying a device which is nearly the same ie no more ram.

Except it actually works. The sooner people stop buying FireTV sticks the better, hardware isn't great for £35, can get better for not far off half that, and it can't even load android devices without messing around.

It's £35. That's nothing in the grand scheme of things. As long as I can stream all the HD content I like for free via Kodi I'm happy.
