      No. Not this in peticular. The Kodi app popped up in the Amazon App Store and shortly after Amazon had it removed. But I side load everything thru Dropbox. And there's several different ways to put Kodi on a firebox. Programmers were already putting Kodi on Amazon boxes and sticks long before the Kodi app was available to download.

      They may one day figure out how to stop this. But it's similar to cable companies being concerned with you downloading pirating movies. You or the cable company isn't doing anything illegal. Again...they want the guys making the movies available for download. All I'm doing is showing you (with Kodi) where to go to watch the movie. People get letters from their cable company all the time stating something in the effect of.....we have detected you are on a list of individuals downloading free movies. Please stop or face a fine. Your cable company send these out because there's pressure from above for them to ....not be apart of this. Yet if it were Inforcible on there end, they would lose you as a monthly customer supplementing their income like clockwork every month. Not going to happen. And Amazon is in the same boat. Amazon deep down doesn't care what you do with their boxes and sticks because it's sales for them. They're getting their piece of $40 or $100 every time someone buys one. They don't want that to stop. Guys are doing what I'm trying to do here on a much larger scale. Selling on eBay and even Amazon itself with loaded sticks and boxes. I'm just guessing but I'm a freckle on a large persons ass compared to people mass producing these already.

      And even if this were to happen down the road.....you still have your stick or box to watch Netflix or Hulu or whatever else Amazon offers on their fire sticks. Your just out the $50-60 I asked for to program it. And it would have paid for itself with your first month of watching sports or movies or a PPV fight or MMA.

      Theres a hundred facebook groups out there with multi thousands of members trading information about this everyday. This isn't a fad or going away anytime soon. Your internet companies are now selling streaming services like I mentioned earlier so they don't lose your revenue. If they lose you as a cable TV watcher.......they want to keep you as a streamer. And in turn are raising the monthly price of Internet. Because they know you can't go without that.

        Busy looks cool

        I did not see a screen photo with the usual type listing of cable TV stations the CNN, TBS, Discovery, ESPN, well known established cable station types. I assume there is a pre loaded APP with those basic cable type line ups also in this?

            Yes. They are all there and available for the most part Try. That's what the other apps provide. I just wanted anyone new to this to get the basics down by putting the 3 basic apps on the front page with easy access. Once you understand how you can watch movies and network TV and then all the sports you want, you can venture to other area in Kodi and watch whatever you want. I recently found in an app called "one channel" a section where people make playlist of things they personally like to watch. There's litterly thousands of lists you can click on for instance.....one might be called..."My scary movies". You click on his list and 100 of the best older or modern horror movies are there for you to one click and watch. Or "Mob movies" all the Casino or Godfather or Donnie Darko movies all in one place.

            Theres very few few channels you cannot watch. Very few. I was watching a hockey game from the 70s the other day in black and white. It's incredible what you can pull up. But I'm not saying there aren't glitches and issues from time to time. People stop making apps you like and you need to find another as your go to app. Or there is buffering sometimes when you start a movie or watch a sporting event. It usually clears up in a short period of time. And this is the reason a bar owner couldn't buy one and charge a fee at the door to watch Mayweather and Manny because it may freeze a little or buffer. But for you or I....you just get used to it and except there will be problems from time to time. Remember....there is no monthly fee. You have a minimal amount of money invested in this. Too many people already have cut their cable cord and said.........you know what.......to save me from paying comcast $150-200 a month......I'll deal with this. I'm not saying for anyone of you to cut your cord............but this is how the people who do........do it.

            Ill post out a few more photos of my setup Try in a little bit. To give you a little better overview.

                Re: Amazon FireTv and Firesticks

                does it get "zapped" every now and then? if yes do we send it back to you to reprogram?

                i had a pansat free to air satellite receiver for over 5 years that gave me every channel dish network had

                occasionly dish would zap the signal and i reprogramed the reciever downloading the new bin file from a free to air site on internet

                your stuff sound great just curious if above potential probs could arise

                good luck and thanks

                      No. No zapping at all. But apps come and go. Stop and start. Over time you will need to learn and use a little common sense about how to go about updating or replacing one when it does. And that's one of the reasons these are not for everyone. My 20 year old has one in her room and uses it everyday to watch her shows. My 11'year old grandson can use it with ease. But my wife is just not a tech type person and needs me to find shows for her on it all the time. So I bought a Roku for her to watch the same movies but there is no live tv on a Roku. It's a game of playing what's best for you. I'm pretty advanced now and can fix and side load just about any app. And YouTube and Facebook groups will,assist you with anything you need and are big time informative. With cable and direct tv you get flawless programming where anything were to go wrong you on the phone in a heartbeat to complain. You pay $150 a month for that. You pay nothing a month here. Nothing....unless you want to subscribe to a pay app where all your stuff is in 1080 HD. There is also apps to give you a good share of your regular programming similar to cable. For $20-30 a month. But cord cutters will,say why are you paying if you really want to cut the cord completely. Everything you want is available through Kodi. Simply depends on your level of comfortibilty. Weather you end up still paying a little or not. I pay nothing because it's all free if you have the time and willingness to learn, You will soon learn there is a level of programming that's right and comfortable for you.

                      A good example I can use is when TIVO first came on the scene. They advertised it as "A whole new way to watch tv." Instead of flicking through your program guide....you scrolling through your season passes on TIVO. With Kodi......you will now be watching all your programming through an app. You learn and adapt. Same think here. Just a different format.

                      i failed to mention I also put a program guide much like your cable company or direct tv on these. You'll love that as well.

                          Anyone can. Most guys don't have the time and patience to do it. I spent a solid year learning the in and outs and fixes and loading of repositories and adding apps in a way that's somewhat user friendly for the average guy. Your a million miles from done 2w2p. And I say that in a nice way.
