Hi,

I'm thinking of getting Premiumize but is it possible to run a VPN on the 1st Gen box?

I currently use unblockr (smartDNS) and they have released a VPN but they say a 1st gen can't run it.

They say it looks to be working but it actually doesn't.

Does anyone have any experience as i don't want to pay for Premiumize if it won't work and i really need to update my box instead.

VPNs won't work on the first gen fire stick but I thought some were OK on the first gen fire box. I use IP Vanish on my 2nd gen fire boxes. It does slow down the connection significantly (50% +).

Well i set the premiumize VPN up on my laptop and it's fine. I'll have a go at the firetv when i get time, although i have money burning a hole in my pocket for the new firetv, just wish they'd hurry up and release it.
