    No chance there's an adjustment somewhere, just like you can set the size of folders on your PC between thumbnails etc ?

    Haven't used Kodi in I don't know how long, terrarium TV works very well for movies/TV shows on the fire stick.

    Hi,

    There's a useful app called "Kodi Tips" on Android (it's from KodiTips .com), lets you know about different builds and services as they are released or updated.

    I had been having a few problems with my set up, but upgraded the Firestick from the old version one and seem to have sorted the issues. Need to decide on a new set up for Kodi now myself, having only recently installed it on the new stick.

    Superfan is spot on in what he's said above btw - TTV works very well, as does LiveNetTV and Mobdro.

    Probably better buying a new stick at that rate.
    Tried my iptv account on one of the new Alexa firesticks and it's flawless, even up in the bedrooms which are a good bit away from the router.

    Has anyone managed to install a podcast player on their firestick that is easy to navigate and actually works?
    Tried a few on it but no joy.

    Lads just as a matter of interest would I be better off going with a firestick or getting something like a maga box to get IPTV? If anyone has a recommendation on a supplier I'd appreciate any help on that too.

    The mess with the PGA at the weekend has tipped me over the edge.

    Iptv working fine for me with a fire stick, you can connect them directly to your router now if you want to fork out the extra for the adaptor/cable.
    I'm using an app called stb emu that you can sideload on to the stick.

    I’ve been using TeaTV since terrarium tv giving nothing but headaches

    So far it’s been excellent

    Nice addition on it is you can switch links if link poor from the play/fed/rw menu
