  1. Today
  2. I found some iPhone 8 latest Rumours : https://www.howtoisolve.com/iphone-8-leaks-latest-rumours-2017/
  3. Love the Beast Shield. Works great with firestick. I use covenant tools to delete covenant cache and I go to firestick apps and delete kodi cache. Is that enough? If not, I would like a clean cache, packages and thumbnails option in next build. Thanks
  4. Yesterday
  5. Thank you for the links and suggestions, I appreciate it. Sarah, alas, my firestick is not connecting to my wifi so it is giving me exactly zero info at the moment. I've been out all day, but when I get home I am going to reverse the DNS change to see if my network finds the firestick again. Once I get it working I gather the info, thank you!
  6. @multipurposemike hello & welcome! 😁Sarah https://mobile.twitter.com/Sarah_G_Barker
  7. Hi!

    Hi @Bodango welcome! Sarah https://mobile.twitter.com/Sarah_G_Barker
  8. @ClayVLigon hello & welcome! You've come to the right place! â˜șHave a look around the forum & let us know if you need anything, nice to meet you! Sarah https://mobile.twitter.com/Sarah_G_Barker
  9. Hi @Lakis you are using Kodi on your desktop, correct? I hadn't heard of Viber until now but I looked it up, and I'll look into it further as well to get more familiar with it to be of more assistance. Were you able to do everything you mentioned on Kodi 16.1? The notifications, alt-tab to switch and still have it play in background? Let me know & in the meantime I'll look into this further. Thanks! Sarah
  10. @CatBlue hi! you said you are using firestick & what build if any? I know you said ares wizard, do you have a build from them or just the wizard & addons? If you can let me know what build you installed recently & what from ares plus if you can send me a screenshot of the following please, from your firestick amazon home screen please go to settings, applications, managed installed applications, select kodi & take of picture I would like to see all size info in there. You can attach below under "click to chose files". You mentioned having this issue in Covenant, is that the only addon you are experiencing issues in? Did you install it yourself or did you use Ares or was in on build? Have you cleared your cache & purged packages recently? If not please do so, you can clear thumbnails too but cache & pkg are vital. Try clearing them & then using Covenant & let me know. (What were you trying to watch when you experienced buffering issues?) What country are you in & do you have a vpn? Please let me know about all of the above & we can go from there. There are several reasons & plfixes I can think of but let's try this & narrow it down if needed đŸ‘đŸ» As for advanced setting.xml they will help with live streams but I'm not sure that's what is causing the issue you are having. We can revisit that too. @Copleyuk hello! Great advice CopleyđŸ‘đŸ™ŒđŸ» Looking forward to hearing back, Thanks! Sarah
  11. @Diana Welch hi! I've never personally used one but I will ask my sister for you, she is a dog groomer & she is like the Female version of The Dog Whisperer 😂 I bet she will know. My dog doesn't listen to me that well & gets away with lots bc he looks at me like thisâ˜ș❀ & Im just like "so handsome" lol (although he listens so well to my boyfriend, & our 8 year old)😂 Ill let you know!
  12. Hello Guys, I am new to this forum and my purpose is to learn from you guys and at the same time contribute all the knowledge that I posses.
  13. @simonzxr750 hi! I'm so sorry you are having issues- let's get you sorted, I just have a few questions: 1)what device are you installing on? What country do you live in? Do you have a VPN? 2)Is your device connected to Ethernet directly? Wired connections are recommended if possible. (Side note it sounds like this might be your issue) Do you know what your internet speed is? Or if it's usually fast or slow? 3) Have you done a fresh start before attempting installation? (If you just installed Kodi & it it empty then this isn't necessary) if you had a build etc on before & or even just addons & your cache & packages are full this could be causing the issue. 4) Is it possible it went from 4% and just finished? What was the message you received? If it's telling you it's done & you can exit & restart it may just have finished quickly. You can try unplugging device & plugging back in to restart it, if it installed Beast Shield will be there. If you reboot your device & build does comes up you may need to redo if you attempted installing more than once because of the 4% to message (for example if you received the message & then tried installing again without fresh start/clearing data) will need to fresh start & add repo to install once more. if unsure, You can also check kodi data size by going to settings, apps, kodi & it will tell you entire size, data size, cache etc. If you'd like to send me a screenshot i can tell you, data size should be around 200 mb or so, Ill double check though & get back to you on that. If none of the above works and/or you need more help lmk & answer questions as it will help me help you & thank you! Sarah
  14. Try this link instead http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO%3AModify_the_video_cache
  15. <advancedsettings> <memorysize>0</memorysize> (Replace 0 with bytes to use for buffer - I set mine to 209715200) <buffermode>0</buffermode> (Should be OK to leave this as 0) <readfactor>4.0</readfactor> (Should be OK to leave this as 4 but might need to reduce it.)</advancedsettings>
  16. @Claire1976101 Hi Claire! @Vypre is correct â˜șïžđŸ™ŒđŸ» From your settings go to apps & thrn kodi, clear data. You will have a fresh version if kodi & it sill say first run when you open again. just so you know an update is coming out very soon, within next day or 2, & the colors will be changed back to what is usually used (not the red etc- other people have brought this up as well & i apologize for this). In the meantime, if youd like to install something right away, the Beast Shield is a great option, it doesnt have live sports included but everything tv & movies. Or I can recommend others if you'd like, & once uodate is out we will post in forum. I can check back with you as well. Thank you, Sarah
  17. @RockyWilliams hi! All youbhave to do is click the x in the top left corner of the ad box & it will go awayâ˜ș Just be sure to click directly on X otherwise the ad will open (however simple clicks like that pay for server costs & are extremely helpful & appreciatedđŸ€—) I'm sorry about this, it is so frustrating, but you will be good to go asap! Lmk if you need anything else, thank you! Sarah
  18. @Newflyer 2200 would you be able to send me a pucture if this? You will habe to take the pic without pausing as i believe it pausing buffering too. That would be extremely helpfulâ˜ș please Lmk & we can proceed from there, thanks! Sarah To insert photo just select "click to chose files" below
  19. the beast

    @lucysoul did you install Beast usa? Evolve isn't on the latest version of original beast, & Beast USA hasn't been updated in a while. If you are unsure, please describe the look for me or take a screenshot & post here but selecting "click to choose files" below. â˜ș I am in the US also, ConnecticutđŸ‘đŸ™ŒđŸ» If you do have USA Beast we can fresh start & install The Beast OG (original) it's awesome & has a US section too, but not necessary to have as you'll get it all. The Beast Shield is awesome but it only has TV & Movies, and since you mentioned sports specifically I don't think Beast Shield is right for you. I'm not sure what device you have, you can let me & I'll give you specific instructions for fresh start but I'll also grab a quick easy video that shows how to do it from all devices plus I'll grab the latest Beast instructions. Once you get that installed I can help you from there if needed. I'll post that info in a few minutes here. We will get you all sorted don't worry!đŸ‘đŸ» Thanks, Sarah
  20. Hi, the link you provided confused me. There was a lot of information on that page; is your buffering fix some of it or all of it? I think I can follow creating the xml file on my computer, but what values do you put in? <advancedsettings> <setting>value</setting> ... <setting>value</setting></advancedsettings>
  21. Hi Cat, I haven't had any issues with the firestick but after the latest update my laptop was stuggling with an Live Streams. Finally got the issue resolved last night by using advancedsettings.xml to increase the buffer size of Kodi and watched live streams without issue. (Quick google - http://kodi.wiki/view/Advancedsettings.xml) Sorry in advance If I'm not allowed to link to 3rd parties Pretty easy to set up and from what I've seen can be done on Firestick too. Hope it helps!
  22. Hi MixDoctor, thanks for your reply! The good news is we do have an AirPort Extreme with gigabyte Ethernet LAN & WAN ports for our home wifi. Our cable modem is Netgear CM400 (High Speed with Gigabit Ethernet port). We bundle (cable, internet & phone) so I checked our package speed, which is 100Mbps. Alas, the bad news is after I changed the DNS settings in Firestick it stopped working. It shows the name of our home WIFI and that there's a good signal but inexplicably it still says "Network (Disconnected). It's blank now, it won't even open the Amazon home page. I could use more advice!
  23. the beast

    Try installing the Beast Shield
  24. Last week
  25. the beast

    I installed the latest version and I'm in the us
  26. Hi There, Firstly get rid of Ares Wizard as it is not needed at all, Now we have a new Beast Build coming out this week or you can use the latest Shield Build (this has Covenant now installed) on. your stick. With reference to HD streaming I personally have investigated this as I have sticks in almost every room inn my home and basically I had the same problems you are having with streaming HD content. Basically in a nut shell its down to the Fire Stick only works on Wi-Fi hence you can not connect it directly to an ethernet cable and it's the WI-FI thats the problem. In the end it was down to my Wi-Fi connection that wasn't fast enough to stream HD content. I cured my problem by changing over to Apple AirPort Extreme and now have no problems at all with streaming. I do not need to change anything from installing a build i.e. not had to change buffers or nothing it just works. The other problem I noticed was my router was only a 10/100 input (from modem to router) and you really need a gigabyte input to allow the streams. So check out your WIFI router as it just may not be fast enough to do what you need to do. This probem also use to happen with my gaming machines i.e. playstation and Nvidia Shield until I changed my network system to Airport's Hope this answers you question Addition Also change you DNS setting on you're Firestick first and try that change primary to 8.8.8.8 and secondary to 8.8.4.4 and see if it improves as this has also worked in the past for other members
  27. Hello, I am using firestick with Kodi 17.3. Previously I was using version 17.1 with Exodus and it worked like a dream. Since updating to 17.3 and using the suggested update Covenant, nothing works right. HD movies start out fine then after 5 mins or so it starts moving in slo-mo and the audio is no longer synced. Or the tv shows buffer, stutter, skip and throw me out entirely. In regard to this suggestion: "reducing the 'number of buffers uses by the graphics processor' in display settings to 2 from 3" is this the setting found in Ares Wizard? If so, when I checked it was already on 2 and I'm still having issues. If it's found elsewhere, please advise! I've been searching for answers since this weekend. Alas, every video and tutorial that swears they have a fix has not worked. Thus far I've changed: 1. Enable HQ Scalers for scaling above (changed from 20% to 0%) 2. Allow hardware acceleration - MediaCodec (Surface) turned Off 3. Installed http://repo-ares-project.com/magic/ Once that was done, launch Ares Wizard and click through the following: Tweaks, Advanced Settings Wizard, Next, Generate Settings, and finally Buffer Mode which was already at 2. 4. Changed Picture Options on my Samsung TV. It was suggested to change Auto Motion Plus to Off. I'm flummoxed, so your advice is appreciated, thank you!
