    As posted by our own @dgstorm here and also discussed in the Sunday Evening Chat, Google's Nexus Player is now available through Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg. I have since picked one up and will be posting tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your device. First off I have to say that the Nexus Player, as of the time of this post, is still a work in progress. I see this device being more for those who like to tweak than the average user. If you own a Chromecast and the thought of rooting and modding it has crossed your mind a few times this is the device for you. If you own a Chromecast because you love its simplicity and have no desire to research and mod then this may not be the device for you. Though we will try and bring you all the ways you can get the most out of your Nexus, we will avoid (knowingly) posting tips that lead to the breaking of copyright laws.

    To start I recommend buying a microusb otg cable (avoid buying the 90 degree)

    Get this one:

    Also recommend a media hub and an air mouse.

    First tip is using Kodi to watch USTVNOW, which is now legal.

    First you must set up here: USTVnow - Watch Live American TV Shows Online

    Then follow the vid below:

    The superbowl brought USTVnow to its knees, it was a nightmare trying to watch. Nice thread, I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
