I've always had 2 categories.

I'll show you the next time you come over, but the main page has them all mixed together. I have to back out, then go to tvs or movies.

I agree. Started with XBMC back in the day and after playing with it for quite a while I switched to Plex and haven't looked back. With Sonar & Couch Potato, my TV/Movie stuff is pretty much on autopilot.

i'm using Media Center Master. I tried Couch Potato and Sonarr and they left me wanting more control.

MCM doesn't do great with movies, but TV shows it's the best out there I've found. Most movies I just go get myself once a week or so.

Sports do suck on it, but since I started using Exodus, movies and TV have been high-quality content on the first try almost every time.

There is a newer add on I started using for sports. I've had far better luck with it than I have with SportsDevil, and others. I'll have to check tonight as I can't remember the name.

My Kodi sucks now. Nothing seems to work on the Firestick. Is everyone else still up and running?

I've heard the sites that host most of the content for Kodi and the like, are being taken down all over the place. If you're able to sideload android apps on your firestick, you might try this, I hear it's pretty good, but I don't use it.

Mine was as of last night, but is extremely slow. Constantly stopping to buffer, and even the menus take a long time to load. Not sure when this started, I've been out of town the last 10 days or so.

I have OpenElec Kodi on a Raspbery Pi 3 and was having slow buffering problems this past weekend as well, even on Exodus.

I just fired up a 1080P stream of Rogue One on Exodus. This was on my PC though. With the firestick I've deleted all but about 5 add ons and it seems to work better. It does take a while to find a working stream of the Blacklist though.

It's just as well. Blacklist jumped the shark after she had the baby.

Hmmm, Haven't checked Kodi\Exodus on the Shield since Thursday night. (out of town)

I guess I should check...

Seems to be an update here:
http://koditips.com/kodi-exodus-not-...here-for-info/

Quote:
There has been an increased number of reports about users finding few or no links in Exodus when running Kodi 16.1 and earlier. The reason for this is because file hosts are switching to SSL encryption (Https addresses) and Kodi 16.1 doesn’t not support SSL. There will be no fix for this and if you have Kodi 17 or 17.1, you should see all of the links that Exodus pulls back fine.

None for me either. Phoenix is better than Exodus IMO.
