Hi guys,

Just wondering if any of you have have thoughts on what setup is best to run Kodi. In particular live streaming using a IPTV addon. I'm looking at using DexterPro IPTV. Has anyone tried it? Do you need to use a VPN for better speeds?

I use a R.Pi 2, for playing stored video, though it plays youtube and other streaming services just fine. An R.Pi3 would work even better.

I am running Kodi on Fire TV (bother version 1 & 2) with no issues with Dexter on ADSL 2 with no vpn. I have not tried the new Dexter app yet.

Iam fully on IPTV @ home. I do subscribe to Hulu and have also got Lightbox. My live streamings comes via Kodi and for that i have a mix of plugins to deliver all the freeview channels. Now i have too many channels and not enough time.

I use Sling TV but there is no Kodi integration yet. I do have a Kodi setup on a Pi3 and I find Exodus good for TV and movies.
