Loads won't play though because it's geolocked .
As far as I can tell it shows you the correct selection (i.e. International Prime Video) and there's nothing that it displays that won't play.
I used to have this problem. If you change your region setting to Ireland then it restricts the range to just the things that you can view.
Getflix is your man. There is a thread on bargain alerts with a 70% discount code. I got the lifetime sub last year and it worked great with Prime.
However I've also had to add a UK payment account to my Gmail account to get it to work. However with this I am no longer able to use my mobile billing to pay for purchases in the play store.
Thankfully i have this as my 4 or 2 yr old has hidden the remote and its signal isnt picked up my the shield so i have no idea where it is!
Incidentally i tried to pair my amazon gen 2 firestick remote and it worked perfectly apart from voice control which i never used .
Within the Amazon app , yeah?
Trying to remember, but I think I did it by logging onto primevideo.com which is their international site. Doing that forces a region change if I recall correctly.
Obviously don't do this if you are using a VPN or whatever.
+1 for Getflix. Got the lifetime deal a while back and has been working flawlessly for Amazon, Vudu, iPlayer etc. Don't use it with Netflix. Website and mobile app allow regions to be set, IP address update etc. etc.
Anyone using Windshield with it? Any joy?
Was using the windshield VPN app fine with it but today used a trial of smart DNS proxy and all is good so no data wasted on using the VPN.
Couldn’t agree more about getflix it’s perfect once set up
The app is great on the phone
Was wondering what you think as alternative on shield that has same value. i.e a box under €200.
From reading a number of threads most of the linux boxes have stability issues while the shield user base all seem in love with thing.
I was looking at a system for Netflix , Plex client ,YouTube , RTE player , Slingbox player.
But also a TV headend client where I can watch live TV or recorded Tv.
All this stuff I currently watch on a Windows player through a web browser apart from the TV headend which I don't have yet.
The Shield seems to take is all however some issues are seen with TV headend . Also like the option of an open operating system.
One thing I do find useful in Plex on windows is that if I have issues with playing a file for example audio out of sync with video I can grab the file in chrome browser and hit download which stores it locally , then open in VLC which sorts it out - would this be possible in the shield?
Anyone here using the shield with TV headend also?
I'm running a TVHeadend server on a headless ubuntu machine with DVB-S and DVB-T
Zero issues with TVHeadend client for live channels
