    I have a Amazon Fire TV Stick with the Alexa remote. I tried the Kodi app

    Kodi is fine, the addons are ?

    So I reset to factory defaults and I heard Cortana. I know Alexa voice, but on the reset Cortana spoke.

    These things are a little pricey, but one would fix your constant Miracast-related issue and allow you to do split-screen viewing from multiple devices wirelessly, cast images from multiple devices including Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and Chromebook, etc:

    I don't work for that company or anything. I've just deployed a few of those and know they're really nice.

    Podcast Addict on my Android is having trouble downloading this episode. Is the rss feed working right?

    Why don't you watch Slinbox on the TV, instead of the AppleTV? That is one device and one remote less that you need?

    The simple answer for how Microsoft can deliver on the functionality of Media Center today is to add TV DVR to Xbox One. This is a feature they promised when the Xbox One was first released, but was subsequently cancelled as a feature despite having huge amount of support on the Xbox Feedback forums (by my counting ~10,000 requests across multiple threads). This is the Xbox team's sorry response:

    We’ve decided to put development of DVR for Over-the-Air TV on hold to focus our attention on launching new, higher fan-requested gaming experiences across Xbox One and Windows 10. We’re always listening to fan feedback and we look forward to bringing more requested experiences on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox Live this year. – Team Xbox

    The only other feature that Media Center had that Xbox One does not is the ability to control an FM tuner, which--since my Xbox is connected to a 5.1 receiver--I don't miss all that much (though a GUI on the Xbox would be ideal).
