2019 - Amazon Fire TV Cube - AMLogic S922Z
Hi again..

Busy day so didn’t have chance to reply

As i said, I only watch movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime and KODI

my current fire tv box is connected via Ethernet cable in my living room and it’s only about 7ft away from my Broadband Router, my bedroom TV also has a fire tv 4K stick which is over wi fi

It will still be the same distance of 7ft when my Cube TV arrives and I set it up to replace my old fire tv box

I always thought using Ethernet was more stable and less chance of buffering etc?

Do you have a link to the better Ethernet adaptor?
What’s wrong with the one that comes with the cube if I’m close to my router?

Thanks for your help

Unless you plan on home network streaming high bitrate 4K Bluray Rips that include lossless HD audio you will be fine with the included 100Mbit only adapter.

My broadband connection is only 71mbps maximum with BT infinity 1, I do watch some 4K movies streaming via KODI yeah, I’ll see how I get on with the included adaptor and if not I’ll have to order this ?

If you own those movies and are playing them locally - then they may go higher than 100Mbs (UHD Blu-ray rips do for example)

If you are streaming them from a legal source you pay for, like Netflix or Amazon, then they won't go higher than 100Mbs.

If you are streaming content illegally, using a Kodi add-on to do so, then there isn't going to be any support here.

Well...

Watched a few films today and experimented with trying to still get DTS to work on my Amazon Fire TV Box 2nd Gen, didn’t work and I only get Dolby digital surround on everything..

I then setup my new Fire cube, checked for latest software updates and installed them and it’s working great..very fast 🏻

I watched the same films again and the settings were exactly the same on KODI as my previous box with KODI, I now have DTS sound finally!

This was on the latest KODI Version...

Glad it works !

This means I can now sell my old box

I would imagine that the fire stick 4K should work the same as the cube with KODI on it?
I was gonna buy one for the TV in the bedroom

Would I benefit from a USB to Gb Ethernet switch adapter (vs the 100Mb included) for KODI startup, paging thru hundreds of titles, etc if my library is all SQL on my server (Gigabit network)?  I'm thinking the faster connection for all the thumbnails and data would help??
