Nice, this was hot at £165.46 earlier. If you're unsure about getting the version with the controller, do it, it has additional features over the remote and is £60 separately. Mine with a couple of pound shop mods 😁

Great deal. Heat added. Don't actually need or want one but will spread it to the masses all the same.

here here, i am really hoping that the android tv ecosystem has the longevity to beat off the competition
Looking at the Amazon reviews there might be a few in Warehouse deals by January.
Ha! So Nvidia DID cut it by £30,just a day late!
Is it worth going for the 500gb model or can a 2.5" optical hard drive be added to this?

I played a 4k film off a USB 3 hard drive and it was still rapid. I'd just do that mate and get this version. Best feature I found for the controller so far is the right analogue can be used as a mouse on web page. Not tried any gaming yet
Bought mine on Friday without the controller heat though!
Overkill for just Kodi use?

You'll find android apps worth using alongside Kodi like terrarium TV. Even though the development has stopped for now. Find it more reliable than Kodi. This replaced my pi3 it's rapid compared to that. Plays all sorts of film files
Can you record to this with iptv subscriptions?

No such thing as overkill for Kodi

FYI - It's back at this price because nvidia have dropped to this price

Yes you can. Internal storage is 16gb. I've only got prog TV to work recording the same channel unfortunately. Even though my IPTV allows 5 concurrent connections. States impossible to leave channel while recording. I tried to setup IPTV extreme but couldn't get it to load the channels
Damm order yesterday now its cheaper
Just a word of warning for anyone wanting to use it as a Plex media server. Plex will only use the internal 16GB storage for the meta data and config files which may be pushing the limits if you have large media libraries. The 500GB version is the better choice if it's for PMS.

That's surprising when it can be moved on other operating systems?

Unless anything has been changed it basically goes on the default system protected storage. Adopting storage (ie increasing the "internal" storage) with another card/drive makes no difference as it apparently still remains on the 16GB drive.

To give an idea of how big the meta data\plugins etc folder can get mine is currently: 16.2 GB (17,400,108,855 bytes).

I don't think you understood what I meant, windows and linux will install to a specific location but can be changed, I don't see why android would be any different, this would be a configuration in plex server

Ok I did a bit of reading, normally it's achieved with a Symbolic link, accept in windows, that explains why it's not possible with Android.

Can you listen to music through the controller?
Is there custom roms about for these?

I believe the way the PMS on Android is written it forces the meta-data/config stuff to internal system storage and it can't easily be moved. Although I am only going from what I read.

You can connect an external drive as removable or permanent storage, or use a NAS

This will only affect you if you have an EXTREMELY large media library and have the thumbnails feature turned on.

For example I have about 6TB of media (mix of TV shows and movies) and my plex app takes up about 5gb internal storage at the most.

And that's with thumbnails turned on.
