Anyone know if these are available in any shops at the minute?

Showing out of stock on Argos and home delivery only on Currys. Not on DID or Harvey Norman sites.

I like it so far, but Channel 4 really need to sort out an app to match their Fire OS one.
I got mine in Argos but noticed on the way home the sticker at bottom of box said it's the 'GB' (UK) version. I'm thinking that's why I'm not seeing all the tabs???

What's on the sticker on yours?



Has anyone got a version that says Ire/ireland on the sticker on box? All tabs showing?

I'm in Spain so have the IT/ES one. Don't think it matters though, the software will align with your Google account location. For example, YouTube TV doesn't show up at all because it's only available in the US.

Bueller? Anyone? I'm sure I can't be the only person who would want to avail of an existing AV separates setup, rather than the TV's speakers. Please and thank you!

Once the HDMI is a pass through it will work fine or just optical down from the TV to existing set up

Anyone using a usb hub with Ethernet? Looking for suggestions, preferably something that doesn’t need massive power to run.

Just bought this today and didn't realise it needed to be plugged in.. Would a longer phone USB work do you think rather than having to use an extension lead to tv? Thks

Kind of annoying we don't have the Movies and Shows tabs. Those two would be quite useful.
