So, I ended up using Showbox (I gave up on Terrarium as the ads were doing my nut) on my phone and using an app called Allcast to send it to the tv. All good so far, decent selection of stuff, quality of the streams was really good ... however, none of the controls worked, pause, FF etc - although thats an Allcast issue not Showbox - but I stopped watching something halfway through,went back to it and it started from the beginning :(

So, the quest to find a decent Genesis/Exodus alternative continues. In the meantime, I downloaded the entire series of the show I wanted as a torrent in 25 mins.

I had the same problem streaming Showbox via Allcast to the TV, however.. It works fine when streaming to the chromecast instead of direct to TV...controls somehow work. Not sure if you have a CC lying about but if you do go for that.

Old school is best I find. Even had to use IRC for an old TV show last week

Exodus seems to be working perfectly for me

Define perfectly, though. It was working on mine but the quality of the streams was really poor.

As I said the other day it seems to be the URL resolver that dictates what streams come up. Which one are you using?

Quality seems excellent and the newer films seem to be better than they used to in terms of picture quality. No idea how to even check what URL resolver I'm using

Its in the settings somewhere! 

Maybe the problems are with older stuff then. I was looking for series 6 of Homeland after watching the first 5 on Netflix. It didnt used to be like that, though, all kinds of tv etc was available on decent quality streams.

Mr X , I use showbox as an android app on Kodi box and use Kodi as a player like you did with allcast. 

The kodi video player works well with showbox I've got a IR8 remote/pad , cost £8

Why not try a debrid service? They are cheap as chips and pretty much guarantee HD 1080 links.

That looks really interesting! If it works you will be the Kodi thread hero :)

You should just go to set up a vpn on your device and it will pick it up

Its Covenant Ive been using, although as discussed the other day Im not convinced the addon makes any difference, its the URL resolver that matters.

So, setup a debrid (Real-debrid), which was simple enough. It find tons of streams including loads in 1080p ... but none of them play! 

ETA - Im literally giddy with excitement now. I thought I had access to Real-debrid (it said free beside "Premuim" which I thought meant I had free premium access but turns out I just had free access) but I didnt really. Paid for the premium service and, after one hiccup, straight into a 1080p stream of the last episode of GOT :thumsup2

@bopolopoluss1 is now the official king of Kodi and the e-chat thread. Everyone take the knee!
