Fire TV Stick 4K - $35
 
I see these on sale today for just $35. They do seem to run the miniclient fairly well. I put 2 of them in my cart for $70. Seems like a pretty good deal.

Maybe Amazon is about to release a new device?

I got two at Staples for $25. Couldn’t believe the price, and that nobody was buying them at my local Staples, which has now closed down. And they price match!

Even at regular price it's a great little device that works well, and makes an awesome up-to-date SageTV client.

But of course we were a Roku house (3), and the Spectrum app doesn't work on Fire TV, and the MiniClient doesn't work on Roku, so nothing is perfect.

Another reason why I still love my TiVo....

Picked up another one. These things are great for the money - especially when you can buy them on sale. I love the fact that running SageTV is easy now with the forked app being in the Amazon store.

Where can I read more about SageTV and a Firestick?

Check out this thread: https://forums.sagetv.com/forums/sho...ight=firestick and the last several pages in particular.

I've now upgraded all my original Firesticks to the 4k version. I bought the 4k sticks on various sales over the last couple of months. SageTV did run on the old sticks, but the 4k sticks are definitely faster than the older sticks and the new remote (with voice control and the ability to control power, volume and mute of your display) is worth the price by itself. I still run a HD-300 on the main TV because I like the remote control experience better than the Firestick, but all the other TVs now just have a Firestick. This way I have SageTV and all the streaming services on one device, on one interface, controlled with one remote.

I don't even have any 4k TVs. :D (Actually my first one is being delivered today).

Presumably if you can control the Android client with IP you can get the full suite of buttons that you ahve for a SageTV extender but you are sending them via IP rather than IR or BT. This is what I have with my Control4 remote controls, but I haven't really used the Android client enough to try that.
