The Code you entered is not for this product

the code only works as far as i am aware for eu plug not uk

Not working for me either.

Found this box really slow.

ok.
thanks.

Bought this a year or so ago and initially it was OK, but has since started overheating.

Doesn't help that the vents are on the bottom side, which is usually adjacent to the surface it's placed on, effectively covering said vents..

Lost of negative reviews on this model on banggood. Looks like one to avoid.

I have two of these. One 16gig and one 32gig model. No problems so far. Perfect for Kodi and Heartstone

Sorry for delay. Busy at work.
I'e had loads of boxes over past few years and this one in particular using remote supplied it seems to have lag. I didn' try bluetooth keypad and fortunately sold it last night for 40. Just not happy with this model.

This or Amazon Fire TV 4k 3rd gen? I can get the fire TV for £40 so not much more expensive.

Can you install linux on these machines do you think?

Had to send mine back, initially remote would not work, then whole box packed up. Currently awaiting refund from gearbest. Had a few others and no problem, this one a fail from me

I've heard the gearbest variants of this model are possible clones as many are finding the custom roms are not working. A green circuit board is the first clue with different components and placement being the second. Some only have 2 usb ports with no hidden ports as on the originals.

It's true to say overheating is this boxes nemesis even on the non clones however if you are prepared to address this and add a decent custom rom your end up with a real gem that runs cool.

Can cause some difficulties to have a ROM installed, mostly with SD card method but I had no problems flashing with PC. Both of mine is with the 2 hidden USB ports though.

Usb burning tool on the PC works best for most people and the majority of 4 USB boxes (2 hidden) flash ok on custom roms.

Codes exhausted.

"LibreElec" is sort of Linux?. :-)


So I'm assuming yes ...

I'd give this particular one a miss because of the issues with heating and the board changes.

Probably why they are flogging them off cheap.

Would beelink gt1 ultimate or mecool b2 pro be better alternatives? I'm wondering how capable these are for the codemasters racing games like f1 2016 & grid autosport ( when released).

Which method did you choose to ship it back? RoyalMail? Courier?

Courier to UK address, no question of sending, PayPal free returns remember, also would not hurt to catalogue, video reboxing of item to send back.

UK Address for RMAs!! That's even better.

I had this box and was initially impressed, however it does suffer lots of software gremlins and frequently showbox would stop working or lock and kodi would play start playing randomly even through i hadn't asked it to. Having said that, i paid £44. About 3 months ago, so for the price it's worth a punt if you install a custom rom.
