Thought it was worth having a separate topic.


Does anyone know the current best build (not version) to upgrade to.

Heard TBE was good but that's gone offline in the last few days.

 

 

 

 

How to Install Kodi

 

You can install Kodi on loads of devices. Mobile, tablet, laptop, Firestick, firebox, Raspberry Pi etc

 

Their download page is here - http://kodi.tv/download/

 

Easiest is to PC or phone/tablet as it's a straight install from their site or your app store

 

For other devices like the Pi or firestick you'll need more detailed instruction. Here's the firestick install guide.

How to add content

 

Once you're able to access Kodi you need to install add ons. Add ons are like channels so you can get ones that are full of sport or TV or movies or music or web cams or whatever. Their popularity rises and falls depending on how much the provider maintains them so you need to keep on top of which one you're using.

 

The method to install an add on is the same every time

1. Add the source (just a web address and name)

2. Install from Zip

3. Install from repository/Enable add on

 

Here's the detailed (simple) instruction for how to add robocop (includes Premier League Pass)

Everyone has an opinion on which add ons to install. CT likes the beast, which links to ALL add-ons there are and gives you a heaving catalogue of anything you could imagine. I like Just Robocop and Genesis which provide sports/film and TV between them.

fwiw I just did a completely fresh install and now Exodus and Trakt are working perfectly again (including scrobbling).   New Exodus source is at http://mediarepos.net/kodistuff and you need

Well that's backfired on me hasn't it.

You can get a six month or 12 month sub I think.

Is the old one obsolete now like? I've just fucking managed to get that cunt working?

He was basically saying last night that he wasn't going to be maintaining it anymore.

 

Must admit this Beast TV took about 30 minutes to install on the fire stick and seems very fast and easy to use.

 

Football on the TV is a quality picture (premier league pass).

listening to that video i'm glad i can set this stuff up myself without having to use someones "build", sounds like a complete moron

Aye he doesn't sound too clever :lol:

 

Seems to be the Grand Master of this sort of thing though. In my younger days I would have had a go of getting into the nuts and bolts of doing it myself. These days my IT skills are extremely limited.

so are his, he's basically just installing a load of other peoples addons and skins into a kodi base install and making some menus to open them.

making on from scratch? it'd be fiddly, installing someone elses... couple of button presses

 

system settings > apperance > skin > get more

pick one

 

i can recommend Amber, it's really fast and has a lot of the extra features without completely lagging the shite out of those wee android/raspbi setups

(if you're on a RaspBI rev.b you can overclock it quite happily as well)

Has someone got a guide to install kodi on one of these fire sticks and can they tell me does it run better than a raspberry pi. I gave up on that in the end just cos it was so fucking slow and forever crashing.

 

Cheers.

I can see your dilemma, think I might pass you onto Ant for this one, if that's alright? :good:

Easiest way is to stick it in your HDMI on your telly and install it through Amazon. It's a piece of piss and takes less than 10 minutes.

Once you've done that you can use the same method to install Fire Starter. This lets you launch Kodi / return to Amazon by double clicking the home button.

no it's a skin

like i said "builds" are just kodi with a whole load of addons hoofed into them

 

e.g install Kodi, pick a skin you like, install "genesis" for the movies (or whatever addon you prefer) same for sport etc

 

so you have what you need, rather than a "build" which probably has a ton of shite you'll never use/look at and is just running for no reason

Cheers CT. The tables have turned here mind, getting tech advice from you. ;) And do I just buy a normal one of these fire sticks off Amazon?

That's all I'm using.

 

There's also a bigger version called a fire TV which is a box rather than a little plug in.

 

The Tekkies also go on about an mate quad which is around £50 and more powerful but I really don't know much more than the few comments I've read.

 

I know Ant isn't keen on them but the Builds are also installed in a few minutes and have all the add ons done in a lovely easy to use interface. Ideal if you just want to be up and away.
