However, movies that have been out for a bit, damn near perfect quality, no subs.

I downloaded the fire stick remote app on my phone and searching for movies is faster now that I can use my phone keyboard

Man, never saw this thread before. Been using Kodi for a while but really haven't explored the potential to it so I hope that we get more people posting on here.

So my first question, any idea why the Fire App won't work on my Fire Box when it's wired? Works fine when it's wireless but hard wired it won't work.

Because the app works through wifi. Not infra red or bluetooth.

I guess it's just me, but I can't stand the Kodi interface and usability at all.

I'd have thought you of all people wouldn't mind it. I certainly don't.


What's your issue?

What's your issue?
it's clunky, slow, locks up, etc. Sometimes it takes 15 tries to find a decent quality version of a show/movie to play. Half of the streaming sports stuff is pure crap.

I'll just stick to Plex and my downloader getting the stuff I want. I can have just about anything I want in less than 24 hours from the time it aired anyways.

You want to give a brother access to your plex server?

I don't get any of that on the FireTV. The stick locks up from time to time. I also don't have quality issues on new episodes, but if it's a brand new release movie, the early versions are usually recorded with a handheld camera in the theater, which is the same exact stuff floating around for download. Can take up to a month for a good quality version to appear.

As for the menu - I don't mind it now that I have all my favorites and stuff set up. I rarely go search for something, and when I do, I add it to my collections so I'm not jumping from menu to menu.

Being the techie you are, I'm sure you know that Kodi points to the same sources that you're downloading from.

yeah, but I manage my downloads, and have minimum quality settings, etc. So I can usually remove the crappy stuff before it gets to my plex server. Plex as an app is so much easier to use and just a better format overall.

For non-tech people I can see the attraction to Kodi, but for me it's like using a first gen 1 Windows phone vs the latest Andriod phone.

Same reason I won't use a MAC or iphone. I can't stand the UI

UK isp's are sending antipiracy letters to their Kodi users, so expect that it'll start happening here too.

Plex is more visually appealing, but I can't stand the way they mix content all together.

Since we replaced the stick in our room with a tv, I haven't even logged in to plex.

TV Shows mixed in with movies, in what appears to be random order.

It doesn't do that at all, mine has two categories.

TV Shows
Movies

It doesn't mix the two together.
