    "Netflix is pretty good. They used to have some shows that I liked that are no longer on there, but the series up now are pretty good for the most part. One thing that's really lacking is the movie selection, which is filled with terrible movies."

    "So, for a while now I’ve had problems in Kodi on my Shield where it won’t do refresh rate switching if the Shield has been in sleep mode with Kodi open. It only works if I turn Kodi off before sleeping, or if I restart Kodi after wake up. "
