Out of the Blue

I'm at the end of my rope with my crappy Fire TV adapter. I got this to replace my even crappier Fire TV Stick, so I guess this is a case of fool me twice, shame on me. The oddest thing about my dissatisfaction is that it centers on how poorly it handles Twitch streams, since both the adapter and Twitch are Amazon products. But I get constant lag and freeze-ups, and have to regularly reboot it to get it to work properly. That is when it doesn't occasionally reboot itself after crashing. I have a Shield in my living room which is fantastic, but is a little over-featured for my office, where I just want to watch some Twitch and YouTube. I could get by with my Xfinity service for YouTube, but they don't have a Twitch app. So I'll have to sort through some of the cheaper offerings to find a replacement for my Fire, which is decidedly not fire.

The Fire stick's biggest issue is weak wireless. I stuck the $15 ethernet adapter on my wife's 4k fire, and it was like a whole new device. Still no match for my Shield, though.
