Hi all. I have had the Beivision 5 unit for some time now and have experienced the frustrations of tech moving with the times. I have used Apple TV via a Keene scart converter for example for years.
But recently I decided to give the Amazon Fire TV a whirl but even via a HD video converter I seem to struggle to get it to work.
is anyone else succeeding with this?
Am I using the right or wrong converter?

I use one of these connected to the side panel (composite connections)
I notice it's listed as currently unavailable, but there must be something v similar out there. I use it for my amazon fire stick and it works well. I do get a bit of a 'buzz' at high volume but otherwise it's good! The problem I had when I installed it was picture and no sound-it was solved by connecting the box to the mains electricity by the included usb adapter plug. So far, it's worked well enough for me to hold of purchasing a newer Beovision!
