Hello guys, i have a brand new Fire TV Stick 4K Max.
Constantly freezes no matter what I’m doing. I have a great wifi mesh system, updated. I ended up buying an adaper so could use ethernet directly. Tried absolutely everything, cleared cache and data and factory reset. I mainly use Plex from my Synology NAS.
So far I would say the device is absolute piece of garbage. I’ve looked at other forums and there are many thousands of the same reports. Does anyone have any idea please?
The freezing issues do not go away even after a factory reset, according to reports.
