Read Reviews before you get Scammed..


Here's an amazing quote from MoneySavingExpert's weekly email yesterday. > Virgin scores well on customer service. In our most recent poll, 41% rated it 'great' - ahead of BT, Sky and TalkTalk. In other words: they're terrible, and it's still better than the others.


Did signed for the £144 cash back deal 2 weeks ago when it was here , the cash back still not appearing in my account, had to ask one their members to manually track it. Not sure if it’s gonna work at all.. thinking of actually cancelling it.. Has anybody ever got the £144 cash back? Thanks


I didnt actually use the code mentioned in the post, it offered me £50 or one of the alexa devices. I preferred the monies.


My experience with VM was I had the 100mb bb and the v3 box. Internet dropped out least once and hour for me for 3 months on end and I had VM out 3 separate times but they still failed to fix the issue. They also bodged up the installation. They considered Internet dropping out once an hour acceptable also which was the final straw. So to people saying vote on the deal I think as a potential customer about to sign up for a year it's very well worth knowing people's experiences like mine. I obviously wouldn't had signed up had I known about these issues. I'm now with BT and although I only get 40mb the connection is rock solid and it doesn't drop out anymore so I'm pleased.

RAVPower FileHub Plus - Wireless Travel Router / SD Card Reader / USB Portable Hard Drive Companion, DLNA/NAS Sharing Media Streamer 6000mAh External Battery Pack £27.99 from SVT / Amazon

The Ethernet port is for plugging into a wall, at a hotel room for instance, so you only pay for one internet service but you can connect multiple devices. That, or it’s an emergency router. The transfer feature does actually work well. SD card and USB stick/Hard Drive connected, go into the app and select what you want to move on the SD card and where you want to move it to. It’s as simple as that.


If you like fiddling, you can do the same (albeit DIY'd) with a Pi ZeroW. I had a play recently for something similar (wireless hotspot to transfer photos from phone to a HDD) and to stream from HDD to the phone using custom web pages etc. Allbeit is a very DIY project and nowhere near as 'nice' looking (the Pi laggy-banded round a 2.5 HDD and power bank lol), it is pretty cool to play around with.


I just got mine and I'm already disappointed. I thought I would be able to hook it up to a device that doesn't have wifi via an ethernet cable and then give that device an internet connection via the FileHub wifi. Turns out the ethernet port can only connect to a router. I've no idea why I would ever use it that way because my router has wifi (obviously) and plugging this into it would consume a valuable port. The one use case I can benefit from with this is being able to backup photos while on holiday, assuming SD card to USB transfer works as I expect. For that it's probably worth having but I was hoping to get more out of it.


I’ve been trying to connect it to my fire stick (apparently you can do it). But I have no idea how so I’ve just given up. Luckily I’ll use it as expandable storage for my phone and tablet.


It’s basic and doesn’t include certain functions. You’re best connecting to it directly in the WiFi section of your phone etc. Then going to your browser and typing in the address bar. You can connect from there and have access to a few more features.

Thanks mate


i think chromecast is better


It was 29.95 a few weeks ago so I am holding out for that price before I buy another.


If you bought it directly from Amazon, speak to customer service via online chat. Depending on who you speak to, they can refund the difference.


I paid full price 2 weeks ago. I am incredibly impressed with it. Just wish I waited, but I didn't know they would reduce it.

I prefer Bluetooth devices to control android boxes. However I noticed android TV boxes don't pair up with some types of devices. My Shield works ok with an emtec Bluetooth controller but not with the emtec remote with keyboard and mouse features. However it works great with the Nvidia shield tablet. The mouse remote also doesn't work on my Xiaomi mi box which is android TV either. Just something to bear in mind.


Whats the best mouse remote control for this?


I'm considering getting one of these, CEX have them at £150 (with the two year warranty), this has a remote and joypad. Any better offers anywhere that anyone's heard of before I pull the trigger?. Cheers, Rich


I usually find other boxes really slow but this seems really fast. I assume you downloaded sideload launcher, you can download tvapp repo to install apps to home screen shortcuts.

Just because it says Android doesn't mean it's the best for tv. M8s pro L / w voice edition are officially Google supported tv boxes with the best for tv Android.


I was considering a M8S Pro L as it's one of the few affordable devices with Widevine L1 support - but then saw it lacks gigabit ethernet.. Are there any decent Kodi/Android TV boxes with Widevine L1 AND gigabit ethernet?


Both boxes are similar in terms of specs. I don't know what you mean by "true Google Android", both have Android 7.1.1. I still prefer the Beelink Ultimate which support MicroSD cards up to 64GB (twice the storage when compared to m8s pro), it has less problems with overheating and, in my opinion, the overall design of the box and remote are better.


Would a mecool m8s pro L with new mic remote and true Google Android same price be better?


Thanks, I'll try all those suggestions... ...tried the 4k Kodi fix - worked :-)

OK I am seeing the de-interlacing issues on live TV with my fire stick.. it's only noticeable on fast moving scenes. I have been reading that the latest Fire TV (pendant) gen 3 has built in hardware de-interlacing which I guess is why you were asking me as I didn't make it clear I had the fire stick. Anyone able to comment on de-interlacing with the latest fire TV 4k?




In using the HD home run app for the fire tv which seems OK for live tv. Not tried live TV in kodi yet. Got the fire tv stick for 29 from argos weekend before last. It's still on offer there. The roku is unable to play back the mpeg codec natively thats used in live tv broadcasts, so the plex server has to transcode to whatever codec the roku supports. That is also why HD home run never made a Roku app.


Are you referring to mpeg2 due to DVD playback, or Plex Live TV? If the latter, how does the Fire TV cope with interlaced content? (and also as @blakie881 asks - where did you get it for £29? :)) I have a Firestick and Live TV is unwatchable due to it's poor deinterlacing ability.


Please tell me where you purchased a Fire TV from for £29. Sure it wasn’t the Fire Stick?

wouldn't play my rare soul records on one of these, that's for sure


there's no subtitles and it's a half hour long, but skipping through i can't see any sign of a microscope or any equipment to properly measure the damage these players cause, so i'd be very wary of what he's saying. the damage to records caused by badly calibrated turntables isn't normally seen easily by the naked eye when the record is going round the turntable 45 times a minute with a stylus in the grooves, the vinyl heats up and the stylus cuts through the vinyl like a hot knife through butter, and instantly cools, trapping things like dust in the vinyl, which is why you get pops and clicks that you can't get rid off. if the turntable isn't calibrated properly, this is where most damage is caused. it's permanent damage that you can't easily see with the naked eye. it's not like taking a knife and making obviously visible surface scratches the problem with this is when people eventually get bored of the fad and the records end up on the second hand market, collectors won't easily be able to tell how bad a record is damaged by looking at pictures or descriptions by sellers who will base condition on looking at the vinyl


Alternatively why not just throw your records into a hedge?


false economy, this will scratch records very easily, If you're happy to spend £20 on a player, and then re-buy your collection once a year, crack on, I'd prefer the dearer playr & buying the cllection once, just adding to it each year.

There's a simple Roku app for playing photos and videos from your network (definitely includes mp4 as I was doing just this). I was using the SD card on my Asus router.


Plex is actually really easy to set up, and makes accessing your media a dream. I regret not discovering it years earlier. Trust me, it's the best option and much better than mirroring or Chromecast. Plus once it's set up it's very user-friendly for your family too. Basically it turns all your media files into your own personal Netflix. You don;t need to be tech-savvy, and there's lots of how-to videos on YouTube. Best of all Plex is completely free. (There is a paid service available, but you really don't need it).


This was briefly just back in stock. Just to ask a stupid question, what's the obvious alternatives to this with its USB port for watching your own e.g. mp4 files? Running a server with Plex? (But that seems for the tech-savvy only...). Screen mirroring with Chromecast etc.? Some other way? Thanks.


No you can't.


Interesting. Little stated difference between the express and the 2. Express has private listening via the app, but no screen mirroring. The 2 has extra ports.
