    Nice!

    For those that want proper Android TV, the Seiki Android TV media box from Target is $59 at the moment. It’s a tiny device that can be powered by the TVs USB port. It also has chromecast built in. I just received mine and it works a treat. Only downside is it runs Android 8.0 and not word from Seiki if 9.0 is on the cards.

      Just 8 bucks more my friend (with price match at OW). If you need it, get it. Money goes around and comes around. Peace is important.

      For the record, I regret not getting the 4K version. Mainly for the ethernet port option, which this doesn't have. Save your coins up and get that one instead if you can. It will last longer

    This if you want something little that you can plug into HDMI and power with usb and not even notice, and then stream youtube, kayo, Netflix, all the fta channels etc from your phone. I guess Vodafone t.v. has other features which I'm sure someone will let you know on here, it's just a bigger (little) box with a remote.

    •  

      Sorry are you referring to chromecast 3 or th seiki box from Target?

    •  

      The most obvious is the VTV doesn't require an additional device just to operate it.
      A chromecast doesn't stream directly from your phone (unless you're using screen broadcasting); the phone only tells it what to stream which it then retrieves from the internet itself.

    I know not accessible for everyone, but $54 from good guys commerical

    Amazon fire stick is far better, remote and actual apps. Far less glitchy than trying to pause and unpause a video or play a video using google chromecast

    •  

      I stopped using my chromecasts for this reason - pausing and restarting video was a pain. I went the roku path, though. It works well, but I may try the fire stick next time so I can use kodi

      Pause and un-pause using the TV remote isn't that hard with CC though.

    •  

      Fire stick needs constant power though yeah?

      •  

        How's chromecast any different?

        •  

          My (limited) reading suggested that the Fire Stick needed to be plugged in to your TVs USB as well as connected to a power outlet, whereas chromecast didn’t. Would love to actually know if this is legit.

    Normal price usually $59, I have picked up 3 of these when good guys have their 20% off sales, which is quite often, for $47, if in no rush.

    Loved my chromecasts, until I got a mibox. Then another, and another… Chromecast is dead to me. No idea why people buy such a limited device. Even mibox is scraping the surface.

    •  

      What makes it better? And why not VTV?

      • +1 vote

        VTV came afterwards, and was more expensive.
        Mibox did everything I ever asked, never broke, and cost peanuts.

        • +1 vote

          Thought I'd revisit the differences. See what's the best now.
          Still MiBox.
          VTV: Disabling NTFS, no-longer supporting files >4GB, is preposterous.

    Has anyone tried the brandless ones of these? They're about $17 on eBay.

    A new chromecast is rumoured to be out soon, with remote.. I'd wait for now.

    Is there anything that combines Homerun and Shield functions/features?

  •  

    I had a Chromecast one and now 2 Chromecast ultra. They do great for me. I also bought a Munoz one, but too laggy and the cast function didn't worked well. I recommend the CC ultra, way more faster and 4K steaming and yes, CC needs power, older devices used a micro USB connector that can be plugged to tv USB or to a provided charger. Ultra version needs to be connected to the electric powerpoint.

    Vodafone Tv selling at ~$72. I’ve been using mine for 6 months now and never skipped a beat. No need to cast from a second device, but works just a well if you need too. Great remote. Works via Bluetooth, so no need to have it sitting in view ala infrared tech. HDMI, USB, Play Store, TV tuner and digital optical. Might not suit top of the wazza users (4K and latest sticky donut with sprinkles Android) but a device that comes with a very good couch remote rather than having to dedicate your $1k phone to cast a video wins every day in our household.

    Fire stick with cinema hd/ kodi and real debrid installed is an absolute gamechanger.

    Ppl still recommend the VTV even though a ntfs HDD is unable to be plugged in to it to view anymore?
    Genuine query as I have been close to pulling trigger - yet now unsure of its overall value if can’t watch dl items through it also

      Can't plug a storage drive into Chromecast either. PLEX has solved the need for most people when it comes to watching downloaded content but I do understand how someone can prefer it the other way. More features/options is always better.

      •  

        yes true true it does not which is why i have not gone down that road either.
        Think i need to look into PLEX properly by sounds of it longterm - yet as have lots of ish across multiple HDD its currently easier to for me to just plug n play.

    •  

      You could always reformat your HDD to exFAT which should work.

      But then it boils down to if you need your HDD to be NTFS.

      It's a limitation of Android 9, that Technicolor (manufacturer) either chose not to address or simply followed suit. There are workarounds for it though, albeit tiresome for some. If you want to view items from your "library", probably easiest to do so over a network share and you remove the need for the HDD. Other than that for $72 it's a solid device and in my opinion, probably the best remote for any streaming device.

  •  

    can this allow you to cast all content from mobile phone to tv or only certain websites and apps? any benefits in getting this if you already have a telstra tv device or a smart tv with builtin apps?

    I've still got the 1st Gen, would I notice any difference upgrading to this?

    • +1 vote

      It can play 1080p at 60fps. Older models can only do 30fps.
      Wifi is a bit improved over gen1 but not noticeably better than gen2.

    My order got cancelled. No stock.
    Oh well looks like I'll hang on with my gen 1 Chromecast.
