I said I would follow up. Not everyone posts in the forums but read the posts and may want
to know about this.
I have Roku, Apple, RCA, and a couple of Smart TV's. Now I have the KODI.
The KODI box is a little larger in size than the other's. Not much but it is, at least the one I have is.
It's basically easy to use once you know how it works. There's a good youtube video that has over a
few million views that is the complete set up walk through. My KODI already came loaded but it is
still a good idea to view the video because it explains what the repository is and folders and how to
add-on's, apps, etc. He also explains about updates and versions.
I didn't realize I had to actually download KODI to my computer. You have to go to the KODI tv
site and choose your download. I chose the download for IMAC but ALSO you need to read the
'HELP' that is under the download link.....which I didn't do first so be sure and do that first. My
install was giving me a privacy setting error and I finally went in and read the help, discovered
how to turn it off and continue with the install. So it's best to read the Help first.
I'm wireless but I think someone said that ethernet actually worked better in regards to programs
not cutting out, buffering, etc.
Last night I watched some movies 'Tarzan' and it played fine except their mouths weren't moving
with their voices. Another new movie I tried wouldn't play at all and only had a few download
options but none of them would stream.
What I discovered is that some of the newer movies didn't always stream or had buffering issues.
My favorite movies to watch are the old classics and fortunately, those play great. I watched
'Cool Hand Luke' last night and it never cut out, mouths moved with voices, super clear hd picture,
and Paul never looked better.
Bottomline, I do recommend KODI if you're looking to save money and still access your programs
My goal is to some day in the not so distant future, cut my DISH completely and even my NETFLIX.
I don't plan on cutting my PRIME any time because I shop there any way. BUT what I am finding is
that most everything these other things have, KODI has and MORE.
