I have tried to add http:// mediarepos.net/ kodistuff and many other addresses and I get a error message  couldn't retrieve directory information. This could be due to network not connected. I have rebooted my fire stick, connection is fine, uninstalled and reinstalled kodi several times. The addresses are correctly typed no extra spaces. I had Kodi 17.4 on my tv and it was working fine then I updated and that's when all the problems started. As of now I have put 17.4 back on my tv and it isn't working either. I have watched all the fix this problem videos on you tube and tried them and none have worked. Please help. I have a Amazon Fire stick and added Downloader to add kodi. This worked the first time. Please help I am now at a loss. Thank you

You must live under a rock! :)

That repo and many others are GONE due to a big crack down on 3rd party Kodi addons. Right now you won't find much out there.

I guess I Do live under a rock. Saw the kodi install video on you be and thought I would try it since I can't afford cable. Lol didn't know about all this. Thanks for sharing the link and setting me straight. Didn't know I was stealing anything from anyone. Have a great day.
