I don't know about Nvidia, I do know that after having firestick for a while I dislike how Amazon is using it to sell me more stuff. I'm planning selling 4k stick and getting Google TV eventually.

100mbit is plenty fast. No streaming service is going to hit 100mbit and only ONLY the highest density blurays go above 100mbit. If you ARE in fact playing ripped 100GB blurays you might have a bandwidth problem.

$40 off, or $100 with the promo code 4KCUBE shown on my pages listing.

This may be targeted so YMMV. Cannot be combined with other offers.

Correct. This one has the IR port, but no extender.

Too bad the ethernet port is 10/100. If you are trying to play 4k UHD rips it will struggle. My Firestick 4k stuttered all the time and I tried using the Amazon branded usb ethernet adapter to fix it. It didn't work.

Then I got the Cable Matters brand and it fixed it up.

Unbelievable that it is still no gigabit Ethernet, still USB 2.0, still 2gb ram and 16gb storage

I hear yeah and wanted a way to get some of USB 2.0's max of 480Mbps max transfer speeds. I thought this might work and low and behold, it works exceptionally well:

https://www.dignited.com/93511/co...t-network/

I'm getting between 250-350Mbps consistently which is what others report as well. I've since wired up all 4x of my 4K FireTV/Max sticks and they work flawlessly for streaming 4K content from apps like Amazon Prime and Netflix, but also local content like Plex that uses 50-100Mbps, depending on quality of the content. No lag and easily worth the $15-20 per device to get them wired.

So TLDR: get USB Gigabit ethernet adapter, get OTG cable that allows USB connection and supplies power/data to Fire TV stick, connect and profit.

Would you still need to use a hub with this?

Upscaling is where it's at, only reason why I ever wanted a Shield. Now you can get this for under $75 when it goes on sale.
