    Recommendation for TV Stick

    Hey,

    I'm hoping some of you would be kind enough to give me some recommendations on a Android TV stick.

    I was asked to put up a Digital Ad display (Basicly just a couple video's playing in repeated loop) in our lobby. I would like to be able to replace the boot logo on the unit so a firmware i could modify would great.

    I've owned a few Rockchip (imitio MX1/MX2 and a UG802) based units personally in the past and hated them. They always had such bad Wifi Connections in them.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    Personally I use my Amazon Firestick for watching live TV on it. Some time ago there were no many options for this purpose. I consider myself to be very luck to discover CkayTV a little while ago. It gives me unlimited access to so many live channels. For those you are interested, I drop a link here https://www.firesticktricks.com/ckaytv-firestick.html . With CkayTV I am free to watch all kinds of live channels and content including News, shows, movies, kids, lifestyle, music, and more.

Which is why i decided to ask for, for at the very least, ideas for a start point.

    I know i'll end up writing a launcher app to replace the main one just to make sure the video plays with out me having to go down and do something every morning.



    I did look at those before posting, but seemed incredible difficult to do any sort of modifications to. From what i saw it seemed really easy to brick the unit to just get google play on in.
    Hi ,

    important are your needs , what you want to do with the Stick , AML & RK , both FW can be

    modified , you only need root , i think a S912 2/8GB , or similar is good enough , best to look

    for ReviewVideos of Sticks on YT , GooglePlayStore is on nearly every Stick already installed ,

    good luck / gefattern
