Shame it doesn't work on the UK plug option.

Is there one which is 5ghz wifi?

What is the bottleneck of this one va a slightly higher model?

Had mine around 1 week, first Android box & very impressed - I installed Wookie build and Realdebrid great.

This or the mxq pro+ ?

Excellent! Baby brother has been humming and hawing, can see him buying one now. I'm tempted myself but I've never figured out Kodi - put it on both my PC and Android phone but find myself constantly searching for streams.

cracking little box for the money

I have a non-Android Sony Smart TV (the model before the Android editions) so I kinda have one now - went for it.

I'm sure I'll unravel the mysteries of Kodi if I'm determined enough

bought this for £24 from ebay with tracking last week, not touching gearbeast after screwed couple of orders and offered peanuts. If noob, stick SPMC or other flavour of kodi with many easy good addons. Got this for bedroom replacement, good bits:

# 2GB RAM, usually 1GB for this price range, you do not want to go back to 1GB like it was 2014
# 16GB internal flash storage, usually 8GB for this price
# Good(ish) name and build compared to 90+% of boxes, not hundreds of clones and skimmed clones of clones.
# Good cpu for the price
# Most boxes are basically dead OS wise and since there hundreds coming out now, custom ROM devs have basically stopped doing most boxes, what they do they often abandon as another box comes out next month. This is one of the few makers out of hundreds who does OTA (Over The Air: wifi or ethernet) OS updates. I believe for this box they already done 4. They also started a website and forum.

Once I get mine, might start an owners thread with links to resources for others. If someone starts an owners thread, I'll post there.

The next kodi is out as beta nightlies with new great interface.

The next generation of CPU from Amlogic is out due this summer but will be pricey in a few boxes till later with more, probably drop by January 2017 with some boxes to a good level. It is the S912 chip and it is totally reworking the architecture. It will be outstanding and cheap(ish), might get a S912 box in Jan 2017 for about for about £70 range, nearer a £90-100 probably this autumn at launch for the few launch boxes.

This or the Sumvision or MX4+

are there any kodi boxes that will let you install a 2.5 internal hard drive, inside the box itself rather than a usb hd or stick for an over all media player experience

Yeah - there are a few but you have to pay a premium. The T8-S for example:

droidbox.co.uk/dro…tml



I can't see how you could possibly fit a 2.5" HDD in to this little Media … I can't see how you could possibly fit a 2.5" HDD in to this little Media player !!It shows the size of the media player above.Paul Daniels would have struggled.



Which is why he asked if there were any that did. Pretty clear this one doesn't.

There are some out there with built in bays. Guy at work was asking if I'd seen these ones before:

https://droidbox.co.uk/choose-your-droidbox.html

... some of which do have a built in bay. You pay a premium for it compared to the ones direct from China tho ....

Trying to trade on the Minix name I guess, which is an official sponsor of Kodi and gets regular updates. I imagine support for this going forward would be minimal

Tronsmart T95 has sata port on the side so you could fit one externally (and is a well supported box)

Hi all

Could I use this for an IPTV box?

Thanks

I think the eBay ones have gone :-(

Ordered this deal when it was on a few weeks back, really good box annoying about the Plug but its simple to replace with another , Installed the Wookie Wizard build via a USB stick and it works perfectly, fully updated links for streaming including UK Turks for Live TV, Docs, Movies Etc, Phoenix for the latest movies and Exodus for TV shows, Exodus canlink to your |IMDB account too so no need to search for links just add via imdb and you can watch what you want when you want, there are tons more apps but to be honest i never need to venture past those 3 wookiespmc.com/

Gone for this, can you output airplay video too this or is it just audio from ios 9 ?

​Indeed. but I would steer clear of gearbest.

Just ordered via ebay link.
Now have a few weeks to do some research on using it now before it arrives.
Heat added

This seems to be indicating it has HEVC 10 bit support - can anyone confirm / comment on how playback is? I've got a box that supports HEVC but only at 8 bit, and of course I've since found that 99% of HEVC videos are encoded 10 bit...

Would this retire my Chromecast or prove to be a worthy add-on next to it?
What might be a decent controller if my GF wanted a lounge browser/games machine (which I assume this will be perfectly capable of)?

4k netflix? Hdr support? Hdcp 2.2?

4k netflix? Hdr support? Hdcp 2.2?



I really doubt you can get even HD Netflix on this. Netflix have approved only a very small no of streaming devices e.g. Fire TV/stick, Roku, Chromecast) and tablets for serving up their HD streams on. Anything not pre-approved will get only SD:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/home-theater/why-android-and-other-devices-cant-stream-hd-netflix/#:VhDVKH0P6oKb7A

As for Ultra HD the list is even more rarefied - copied today from their website:
Nvidia Shield
Roku 4
TiVo Bolt
Amazon Fire TV (New Version)
British Telecom - BT DTRT-4000
Air 7410X (Waoo! in Denmark)
Sagem 4K (Totalplay in Mexico)
Dish Hopper 3
Orange Livebox Play 4
More devices coming soon!

So this box is more than capable of playing a 4K stream and may even have the right HDMI credentials etc, but Netflix simply won't care.

See Post #41, not sure what the EU plug is like with the Beelink, you may need a EU to UK plug in adaptor instead?

EU plug option still on sale

EU plug will still work, just put an adapter over it. £1.49 from Red Apple Audio in the UK http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B000NJ30QO/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new

Fits like this and screws in (takes a UK fuse of course)

Just a word of advice - pay through PayPal - my unit lasted 2 hours before it became non-operational and it was easy to raise a PayPal complaint which seemed to get noticed by Gearbest a lot quicker (since then I got a good unit from Ebay with warranty)

Anyone recommend a good dedicated remote that can be used with this box?

Do you need something specific? I ask as it does say in the description it comes with a remote (though there are no photos so who knows what it is like?)

I was going to say that but thought it'd sound a bit ar$ey. Maybe means a Harmony remote or suchlike.

Not the greatest, but at around 0:58 and 3:25 you can see the remote here youtube.com/wat…DB4

I thought maybe that, but if that is the case you really do need to know their requirements first.

That remote looks barely more than a Roku remote, ample for just the main menu and Kodi, no good for non-media apps I wouldn't expect. Apparently Unified Remote are working on the ability to control one Android device with another, if they release that in an update soon then that could be a very good option for something like this.

I control my own Addons but for New people as well as experiences kodi users I recommend installing the wookie flavour of spmc DBO187 linked on this page. You can watch easily lots of stuff.

Chromecast to be ditched? No, different beast, has it's own uses, fast YouTube etc. As does chromecast audio. Might want to get a remote controlled hdmi switcher box for tv, about a fiver on eBay, to switch inputs to the tv fast.

Remote control: For setting up android, Kodi etc I use a wireless flat pc mouse, couple of quid from eBay, get the fatter bulgy older flat mouse, tis good quality.

I've been using the vertical skin on Kodi for nearly 4 years. Was abandoned for a while and persuaded the dev to resume. with vertical can use basic minimal remotes such as the one shipped with this box, not mouse or airmouse or controller. And it's much much faster and easier to control Kodi with vertical skins. And now everyone realized what I been saying for four years, next Kodi skin by default is vertical. No more trying to hunt down the hotspot on the silly horizontal control strip, and then trying to drag it left or right. Unbelievable crap that lasted for years. I rarely use my expensive remote airmouse / keyboard

Game controller? Could go for a Tronsmart go1 controller on Amazon for about £12. Functions as mouse/airmouse too. T3 game controller is basically the same for about £6-9 on eBay.com (not .uk). Got a T3 there last week for £4 but sold out fast.

This box is New from a good(ish) New maker which do a range actually. This is the cheaper small cute model in their line up. Reviews and feedback has been good so far as opposed to most other hundreds of budget boxes, except a handful of more pricey quality names. It does not have a switch button or light. You can buy a remote controlled power plug on eBay for a few quid which can be used for other things too.

EBay seller others listed here seems to have stock left. These were £32+ till last Thursday, then a couple of big tv box sellers dropped the price to £24 but sold out fast, now one has stock again but running out again. If it sells out, search eBay.com for it and sort by cheapest every few days. If you see a seller on eBay selling android tv boxes for silly prices, they are a scam. Usually less than 300 feedbacks, been selling dollar tat (as seen in feedback) and suddenly selling electronics for less than factory gate prices. You'll get your money back after a couple of months when they get banned, but waste of time. EBay Seller linked in this thread by others is legit.

What's the advantage of buying more expensive boxes at 60 to 90 pounds...?

What's the advantage of buying more expensive boxes at 60 to 90 pounds...?



Hardware that has been improved, soak tested and works well (e.g. Wifi reception on Minix boxes due to the massive antenna), software optimised and tailored to the hardware, continuous improvement of the user experience and bug fixes via OTA updates, a 1 year warranty which will probably be honoured etc etc.
