Looks like it might be the reinstall TV option rather than factory settings.

Tried that too. I have no ariel or dish so that option doesn't do anything as it only scans channels

My mum.
She's had it knocking around for around a year before I relieved her of it

Ah, ok, I thought you'd just bought it!

If you do get the Fire Stick I'd hold out until the 4k one is down to £25 or £30 over Xmas. Even if your telly isn't 4k it's just nippier and will handle x265.

Bit of an aside, but I just got this yesterday after my WDTV-Live died -

GearBest - S10 Mini TV Box (UK Plug)

Got it for x265 playback (lacking in my wdtv) and optical out, and pleased that it passes thru DTS (as my wdtv) but can also transcode AAC5.1 (lacking in my wdtv). It came with Android 8 patched upto Aug-18, and has Kodi (XBMC) and a few other apps ready-installed.

Overall, much better than I expected, although there are likely better value players (like this Magicsee N5 NOVA) as I bought this locally from a limited number of options.

My friends got a firestick and some amazon box and very kindly gave me a neflix login from her account. I've got NowTV but when I looked looks like the app wasn't available for her hardware?

I see the Firestick 4k is on sale today - tempted, but I already have an Xbox plugged into the tv.

Are the apps better on the Firestick? Only thing I'm missing i think is UKTV play and now Taskmaster is leaving not sure I need that anymore!
