    I have 5 firesticks with Kodi and I use Amber on all of them. Very simple and easy to use. And perfect for kids and grandparents.

    Estuary is a terrible skin. It’s dreadful looking and never remembers the type of view you chose last time. Also, there are 3 extra steps to turn up the internal volume on a video playing, which is necessary with about 9/10 videos I watch. I realize Confluence isn’t perfect, but it’s better than Estuary in so many ways.

    Confluence good. Estuary bad!!! Confluence wasn’t perfect, but it was more intuitive than Estuary. Thank you.

    Very easy to fix. Go to add ons, install from repository. Go into Kodi repo, in look and feel you will find confluence skin. It will give you option to activate it.
