Kodi is a legit program and the developers know how to keep it that way. Nothing illegal about Kodi. Some of the third party apps...

Sounds like a scary April Fool's Day prank.

I should start an April Fool's thread.

Speaking of Kodi, do you use it to watch live TV at all? If so, which add on?

I have tried various live TV addons but they're not as stable as cable so it's easier to watch live TV there.

If you see one that works well, post it. I'd add it just in case cable goes out and I can still get internet.

Will do. We haven't had luck yet, but things are bound to get better at some point.

Does anyone else have buffering issues? It's not my internet (at least 25 MLB down), but everything is buffering regardless of what I do... any suggestions?

Clear the cache.

Certain sources suck for streaming from. Don't use 1channel. Ever.

Having the same issue, cleared cache, restarted kodi/wireless/modem and it's still doing it.

I downloaded it and am running it on my PC that's now connected to my front room tv. Works just fine but I haven't played with it much. Seems like it could be set up like Plex as well

Genesis has been unsupported for at least a year. I hope no one is still relying on it.

Same issue before and after the latest update. I was using exodus and moved to split-fork or whatever it's called. Same issue on all.
