When you restart them they often go much faster. Maybe it was just that?

Seems like a firestick would be the slowest imaginable way to mine for BTC

"I still use the old fire stick in my bedroom. It's still so slow. However, i took it out of town this weekend and was using it on a TV where I was staying. It booted up and ran great. Very little lag in browsing through apps, quick to load netflix and quick to enter/exit apps. It was setup the exact same as I have it in my bedroom at home: plugged into power outlet and directly into HDMI port. Has anyone experienced any performance differences in their units from one TV to another? Got me wondering if the TV itself could have a negative impact."


Have the same issue with a 1st gen one as well, on a slightly older TV in our bedroom. Latest DirecTV Now update doesn't work on it now
