I've had one for a few years so not sure what's best these days as the one I have is discontinued.

Thanks@chelseamaniac

Wasn't aware there were a lot of clones on eBay and Amazon. Thanks for the heads up on that and I will check the model you mentioned. Thankyou👍

Yeah mate they are fab, I run the Nvidia Shield, Amazing bit of kit, pricey though but well worth it as i can stream all my games from my pc to the big tele when I feel to lazy to go to the mancave Smiley Wink

T8 V4 is a cracking box to gave also

problems with the cheap boxes is the processing power they have, they can be awful for streaming anything but standard definition films. Live sports are always stuttering, invest in a decent box and it will do you well

A firestick from amazon does the job...just but I soon got fed up with some of the lag and quality so invested in the best...Nvidia Shield
