Dont remove usb cable before updating finished
Just unbox, put batteries in the remote, connect HDMI, switch TV to proper HDMI channel, and plug in the power supply … Voice recognition works pretty slick, just too bad Amazon (for obvious reasons) did not integrate this with apps like Netflix.
An app called “AGK Fire”, which can be run from another Android device, like your Android phone for example, is supposed to be able to install apps on your Amazon Fire TV as well …Kodi, formerly known as XBMC, is in my humble opinion one of the best Media Center applications available.It’s free, it doesn’t rely on silly video streaming, tons of plugins and skins can be found, runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Android, i OS, and even on a Raspberry Pi (yes, even the A model) or an Android phone or NAS (QNAP for example).I did look at numerous Android based devices before, just for the purpose of running Kodi (XBMC), but so far all the horror stories have kept me from doing so.Amazon’s Fire TV however has been reviewed and always seemed to score high when it comes to performance.u However, …The big downer though is the (seeming) inability to install non-Amazon approved apps, even Google Play is missing, and that’s where this guide comes in.
Amazon has released a stick version of the Fire TV as well, the Amazon Fire TV Stick which is less than half the price of the full size Amazon Fire TV.
I’ve installed it on regular PC’s and Mac’s, tiny PC’s, Apple TV’s (1st and 2nd generation), Boxee Box, etc.
With the arrival of Amazon’s Fire TV, it was just a matter of time when I’d buy one.
The Fire TV Stick is much smaller and simply plugged into the HDMI port of your TV.
An additional Power Supply is recommended and it’s processor will of course be less powerful than the full size Fire TV.
OK, now that we’ve seen the usual info related to the Amazon Fire TV, time to install Kodi!
