Has anyone used the Roku Ultra?
Compared to Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and other Android boxes it was rated highly. Only issue is the remote which needs to be used in line of site to the streamer.
Time to get back to when I enjoyed listening......no more upgrading, more of a headache than a pleasure

Something like this. Only problem is that it is rooted and Showmax won't run on a rooted device so you'll need to install an app to hide the SU user.

Ticked all the boxes though, I have 2. The Xbox One does it best though.

I bought one of these and at the price it is great. At double the price it would still be a bargain.

My Nvidia Shield order got stuffed up. I got an Apple tv4 for now. Iíll try again to get the Shield

You did the right thing. Get a Shield or ATV and be done with it. They have proper support for the apps unlike some of the chinese stuff we get.
