    I have tried installing SpectoFork several times but after I “name it” (filmkodi) I get the message that the device is not connected to the network.
    I used to have Specto but list it when I upgraded my device.
    Can anyone advise?

    …..hello, and go Atlanta Hawks !

    Somebody help, please–I am trying to watch the later episodes of the original “Dark Shadows” from the mid-1960’s.

    Specto……Fork has all of the seasons and episodes listed; however, when an episode is clicked it comes back “no stream available” from 17 providers.

    Is there anything I can do from my end, or have the links to the servers holding the programming been terminated ?

    Thanks, and regards,

    I keep getting a ‘failed to install add on from zip-file’ after I try to download it to repository
    Can anyone help?

  11. Justin

    I installed specto from “super repo” and it failed to install about 10 times before it finally took. Keep trying and will eventually work. I also had this happen on with several other firesticks I helped friends and family setup. The only answer to fixing it was keep trying. Eventually it will work. After it does install so far on every one it runs well.

    I cannot install this. Every time I try I get the following : “Failed to install a dependency”. I am using Kodi 16.2, has anyone else had this happen and found a solution?

    1. Mxamus

      Yes, go back and do the steps again- ( I hit it 3 times, 3rd charm)checking bottom right screen if it doesn’t. Then update.

    Going into My Specto, Favourite TV, Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 4 the last episode listed is 4 x06 Monster in the Closet aired 11/15/2016 it has not added any new episodes since yet there has been 3 new episodes that have aired. Nov 22. 29 and dec 6th. I have auto-update enabled yet it is the same for all my shows I have saved in favourites none are showing new episode listings. Criminal Minds last episode listing is 11/16/2016 yet two more episodes have aired. Very frustrating.

    1. Cloud

      Dude your getting it for free… and you complain that the newest episode is not there yet, if you want it faster pay for tv service and get it on-demand.

  14. Emma Dixon

    hi my specto tv shows aren’t not working and slow what can I do thank you

  15. Sheena

    The install worked fine but like Travis I just discovered the latest update wiped all of my favourites, which means I have lost hundreds of entries. Anyone got any idea how to recover them? Please help

  16. Travis

    I love specto fork it’s the best addon ever, Genesis was great and I’m glad they took it over and kept going. My only complaint is the newest update on September 12, 2016 Has now wipe out my favourites with over 60 TV shows and 40 movies I favourite it. I do have a library with them all stored but can’t seem to access/put them back in my Specto fork favourites again. If there’s any HELP out there on how to do this let me know thx.

    1. Mike

      Did you find a solution to getting back your favourites yet? Same thing happened to me. Frustrating trying to remember everything I had in there.
