Re: Amazon Fire TV Stick

I just ordered a bunch of HDMI adapters from Amazon to cover my ass should two sticks fairly close together won't work separately with a remote. I could always put the new one in the kitchen(use with 18 ft hdmi cable) which is just a hop skip and a jump from the living room.

Re: Amazon Fire TV Stick

You can use the smartphone app to control them individually, otherwise you'll have to use two separate remotes since these are HDMI sticks which are intended to be hidden behind the TV, they work via Bluetooth and not line of sight IR.

Re: Amazon Fire TV Stick

For Fire TV, is it usable without being connected to the router? Is everything in 4K?

I don't think so, and no.

Re: Amazon Fire TV Stick

Is the Fire TV worth it without the Kodi add-on?

Re: Amazon Fire TV Stick

Its just Another solid device to stream amazon prime, Netflix, hbo go etc.

If you have personal photos and personal video in the amazon cloud, its great. It has some decent app add ons, but if you have a roku its prob not necessary.

Re: Amazon Fire TV Stick

Biggest minus about the FireTV is there's nothing that supports UltraViolet on it, so if you have any number of movies on that you're screwed. I have a FireTV, Chromecast and several Rokus and use the FireTV about the least often, even with Kodi on it (quality is usually too bad to bother with, even for free.)

Re: Amazon Fire TV Stick

Isn't Flixster available on the Fire Stick?
