I suggest looking into backing up whatever build your using. I messed my box up clicking to fast, luckily I bought my kids the same box for Christmas and was able to transfer the build back onto mine.
Got any deets on doing this?
This is the walk though we used to backup my boys box in order to transfer his build back onto my box.

In the UK last week some ISPs sent letters out. I didn't get one, as I hardly stream much. And as I said upthread. Not anything recent. There are a couple of cases going to court as people in the UK are selling 'preloaded' with the things that make the legality a bit dodgy. As of course Kodi itself is just a conduit.

I mean it will all be different over there, but you know these things catch on...

I've been using kodi with a firestick for the past few months, it's pretty great. Also just discovered you can change the settings in Exodus to have it automatically start playing the next episode in a series, pretty nice. I use trakt to add things my collection, really works well.
Also loaded Mobdro on recently and have better luck with live tv with that.

Anyone have any experience with Raspberry Pi, specifically v3? I'm on fence.... make another purchase or just stick with the firestick.

Follow up... this was a great purchase... all games/systems, from Dreamcast and prior, and it runs Kodi 10x better than the firestick

I was hoping to be able to DL it on my LG smart TV, but i guess the only way is via amazon fire or roku.
