Thread: Kodi box

  1. Default Kodi box

    I'm thinking about buying a Kodi box, but I'm so out of date with techno stuff now. Can anyone tell me the best one to get, should it be jail broke n fully loaded? Are these legal to use, sound so good ...... TIA x

    You may think you're out of date but to some of us "jail broke n fully loaded" are a complete mystery!

    My uncle had a similar android box - but it was very frustrating - such a long process to get channels. He'd find a decent sports channel then a few days later it would have vanished so he had to search for another. Even just changing channels wasn't like a normal TV with the single press of a button.
    However on my recent holiday a bar/cafe we went in run by an older gent - had a similar box - August DVB600. One day when it was quiet we asked if he could get the rugby on the TV - he said he didn't know exactly as it was new & his son had sorted it for him. However he gave us the remotes & said try to get it up on the TV. Within a minute or so I had sorted it all out & that box was so easy to use. You could flick through channels exactly like a normal TV. The picture quality was fantastic - only once did it stop/load/freeze. But we changed over to the football then back & it was all ok again. I've seriously considered getting one of the August boxes - but I can't find out if you can link them to some sort of recorder. I do like my Virgin Tivo - getting to record many different things at once.

    I use Kodi but just the app on desktop and phone, I only got it as I took out a subscription with Ultimatemania (check their facebook page for info). I know that most people get a box and use it to watch TV and although Ultimatemania is safe, if you are just looking to get free channels and movies I read that you could be asking for trouble with Viruses depending on what video add-on you install. Not sure if a TV can get a virus but wouldnt surprise me!

    For legal issues this might interest you:

    I recently bought an Amazon Fire Stick with Kodi installed and must say great for Sport and Films etc.

    I've challenged my other half to try to jailbreak an old Now TV box for this reason but he hasn't started yet. I'll let you know if it works
