Any more of the Kodi box type of tv box?

Hi


I don't know whether this is the right place to ask. I bought two Kodi boxes in 2016, the MXQ or something. My main thing is to watch tv shows that I missed. I used Exodus a lot, it used to work, but about a year ago, they all stop working. I want to know is there anything out there that still work I can buy. Or they shut it all down already?

Own designed power amp, own designed preamp, JM LAB Spectral 913.1 speakers, Rythmik F12SE sub.
Not hooked up: Nakamichi Stasis PA-7 power amp, Velodyne VA1210 sub, Kef Reference Series center, Kef Bookshelf speaker, Monitor Audio bookshelf speaker, Infinity rear speakers. Acurus 3X200W amp.

Kodi is a fully working open source and legal platform. Exodus was an addon that allowed for sharing of mostly illegal content. It's hard to know what you're asking exactly. But Kodi still works fine. I have no idea about the condition of Exodus. I don't use it.

Exactly. Kodi is open source software you can run on a PC (or many other types of hardware). There are tons of add-ons. It's unforunate that "Kodi box" started to mean box pre-loaded with Kodi and add-ons for illegal streaming.

You can still get Android TV boxes that run KODI, of course the manufacturer might not be around if you have an issue down the line. Start by googling Xiaomi Mi Box S they seem to be commited to be in the u.s. market for awhile. Exodus is dead if you're looking for it.
