Thank you for point me this mod for gen 3

I already use 21 due to hd audio fixes for android and new firestick

Could you also suggest me, if afr works correctly, a gigabit ethernet adapter ?

i used this one https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0871ZHCKK
works perfectly fine and doesn't block the use of usb thumb drives (or wireless remote receivers) because it's got a built-in hub
(extra note, the port on the gen3 is only USB2.0 so you're not going to get much more than ~250Mbps on that)


RE: 2021 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max - Roby77 - 2024-03-07

Yes 250/300 it's ok for me for lan content and kodi (i also use it with 4k max)


RE: 2021 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max - Roby77 - 2024-03-07

So Firecube 3 arrived and seems that now with this device i don't lost AFR when I switch off TV

BUT I don't have AFR in netflix LOL

With 4k max gen a banner in netflix notify about afr activated, with fire cube gen 3 no banner and no AFR

Never ending story

I'm bored of Amazon devices I will return it tomorrow

Edit: after several try play/stop same film etc lost afr
Tried with avr on and when switch off fire cube set resolution to 720p 60 lol

Now i Will give a chance to homatic s905x4

In the worst case I will return to antique time

Firestick for stream

Nuc for my love : libreelec ( I never had problem with Nuc.and AFR)

Cool thanks. AliExpress takes forever to deliver to my country but I’m sure I can find something locally. 

How is it with Amazon delivery in your country? I ask since "Amazon Basic" adapter, which is guarantied to work, is sold by - Amazon.


So checked and the Ugreen Adapter 20256 has Asix chip. Works perfectly, no more pauses or stutters. Even switching my WiFi to 5ghz only didn’t work.

Anyone else having sound issues upon resuming Kodi 21 RC1 after the device goes to sleep?

I have no sound until I close Kodi and re-open on my 4K Max.

Anybody figured out a way to get into android/data on firestick 4k max


RE: 2021 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max - hdmkv - 2024-04-03

Something like Xplore, ESFileExplorer or similar not working for you?

Hey.
I'm trying to understand if Atmas passthrough works.
I try to use mkv samples and can get only PCM.

What I can get with this device?
DD+Atmos? Dolby TrueHD + Atmos? DTS:X? etc

I was able to get DD+ Atmos.
But instead of Dolby True HD + Atmos I get only Dolby True HD.

Yes!  This issue has been driving me nuts on Kodi 21.  Every time I pause a video and come back a few minutes later (after the screensaver comes up), there is no sound until I close and reopen Kodi.  Never had the problem on Kodi 20.  I've tried everything including doing a fresh clean install.  Ultimately downgraded back to 20.5 and not having any sound problems now.  Anybody know what this is?


RE: 2021 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max - Bow_Wazoo - 2024-05-25

I have a Fire TV max (gen.2) with which I access my NAS hdd via WLAN. Since the connection is too bad, I want to connect the stick via a LAN.
Will I still be able to access my NAS hdd?


RE: 2021 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max - JuzDU - 2024-06-03

I just bought a Fire Stick 4K Max and have plugged it in to my Denon AVRX1700H. I have a 7.1 Atmos speaker setup which I've been using for some time and enjoying Atmos sound from Netflix/Prime/Kodi etc....until someone mentioned it's lossy DD+ Atmos and that "you aint heard nothin' yet" and said I should get a Fire Stick for TrueHD lossless Atmos.

I have some mkv files with TrueHD audio, mostly HVEC 265 video, but I can't seem to get Kodi to play them properly from my Media PC...some black screen with great audio (Denon shows Atmos or "DTSHD Neu:X"), others show video but lag and stutter. Audio seems fine so I guess it's a video problem. I have a fast Wifi6e network. If I turn both HW accel options off in Kodi the video plays at like half speed. If I turn them on for the files that don't black screen the video plays well for a minute or so before freezing for 20 seconds then continuing. I can't really find a good explanation on HW acceleration...I assume when turned on it uses the Fire Stick's CPU to do the decoding, if turned off it uses my media center's CPU? But even with it off I don't see much activity on the CPU/GPU of my media center so I must be missing something.

Can anyone link me to something that'll get me sorted out here?
