    Help Nvidia TV boxes-Are they worth it?

    I have a Firestick in my bedroom which I occassionaly use to watch Youtube and terranium tv. Recently the terranium tv has been unwatchable. Loads of buffering issues and audio sync issues. I've been told it's probably the firestick so I though about buying a new tv box. My cousin has a Nvidia tv box which he says are excellent but at ?150 they're not exacty cheap.

    I might move my Fire TV from my living room to my bedroom and buy a better box for the living room.

    Money is not really a problem but I hate to buy something when there is something else comparable and cheaper on the market. Is there such a box? I've seen loads on Gerabest but unsure exactly what I'm buying.

    I quite fancy this

    However it states in the questions below it can't run IPTV which I don't understand. I have Iview on my Fire TV. It runs as an add on sideloaded.Why couldn't it run Iview? [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I think they are saying it doesnt play IPTV out of the box. It is Android 7.1 so plenty of IPTV apps for that. Don't buy it on my say so though but it makes no sense to me.. You could install Kodi an APP for IPTV imho

    Thanks to piggzy

    you don't really need the 64 meg of ram

    I haven't scratched the 32 meg in my box
    but it all depends on what you want from the box. 3g mem is required for the new kodi and APKs to make them run smoothly

    I know but for an extra tenner I took the belt and braces approach.

    I'm currently connected to ethernet on my fire tv. It does freeze now and again when using Iview but I just change the channel and back again and it's okay after that. I was informed the latency issues might be my firebox hence another reason why I've ordered the new box.

    Watching Terranium of my frestick in my bedroom is not even possible.

    What connector are you on about withthe new FireTV?
