Amazon announces Fire TV

http://sourcefed.com/amazon-announces-fire-tv/

Amazon has dove in head first into video hardware, announcing it’s new set-top device: Amazon Fire TV.

Clearly a competitor for Apple TV and Roku, the $99 device is an internet-connected set-top box which uses voice commands that you speak into its remote control. It will also serve as a gaming console, and consumers have the option to purchase a separate $39 controller that is paired with the box.

Amazon has claimed the device is 3 times more powerful than Apple TV and is based on Android and HTML 5, which means it should be easy for companies to bring their apps over to the platform. It supports Hulu Plus, Netflix, Pandora, Youtube, Crackle, iHeartRadio and Vevo. Sadly, HBO Go and Vudu are not supported.

Fire TV also has a predictive engine called “ASAP,” which pre-loads content it thinks you are going to watch, so it can start without any buffering or load time. This feature learns over time and gets better at suggesting content you like.

In a prior announcement made this weekend, Amazon said it will be turning six shows from its Amazon Originals program into a full series. The shows, which were selected after viewer feedback from the pilot episodes, include ’The After’, ‘Bosch, Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street’, ‘Mozart in the Jungle’, ‘Transparent’ and ’Wishenpoof’. Amazon also renewed ’Alpha House’ — starring John Goodman — for a second season.

As far as gaming is concerned, the console will offer titles such as “Minecraft” and “The Walking Dead”. Many of the titles will be free or cost a little as $1.85 to play.

Finally got 1channel to install on my tablet and it has all kinds of display issues. Everything worked fine on Frodo. Gotham is a disaster.

Actually, it is unrelated to Gotham other than needing the xml file updated. The main issue is the xbmchub servers.

I would try the source repo instead of Superrepo. Superrepo simply rehosts the actual plugin. So I doubt you would get updates in a timely manner, if at all. Add bstrdsmkr's repo and get 1Channel from there to ensure you're getting the legit plugin and updates. That way it will autoupdate as soon as a new version is released.

It was bstrdsmkrs I ended up getting. For whatever reason, when I try to play video, I get 10 screens of nothing but garble but clear audio. I went back to Frodo since it works without any video issue at all.

That's bizarre. It's working fine for me on every platform.

If I had to guess, since I dont know programming, but really should learn python, the way they set up Gotham is it would be backwards compatible with frodo add ons. All that was required is the xml file for the addon to be updated. With all the server issues they have had, I am sure it is near impossible for you to get your xml updated.

So it works fine on Frodo but not Gotham.

Honestly, I am a bit less than impressed with the enhancements of Gotham. Maybe it is a little faster in the menus, but it was not the big leap like Eden to Frodo was.
