Quad core Android box with 2gb of memory for £58.99, can be used for TV Catchup apps, XBMC and pretty much everything Android can usually be used for. It has digital audio out via SPDIF if you want to connect it up to an amp, comes with a remote but your better off using the rockchip remote app on your phone which is free. If your using XBMC just make sure your using the latest dev build version Gotham (it'll be fully released soon and seems quite stable) as the current stable release Frodo does not run well.

Apologies in advance for being stupid, but what exactly is this *for*?!



Android on your TV

Yes, exactly. Is it just a tv box or it's gonna radically change my life for this price....?

Could be used as a media center and games console.

Seems pretty good for the price, nice find.

I got one with the below spec for £45 in November for running XBMC and was well impressed, judging by the specs of this one, and some user knowledge of XBMC it's amazing at that price. Sky contract cancelled in December and Netflix,Lovefilm and never looked back!

I'm using the below Remote App which is amazing!

Its an android device you can connect to your telly, you can use it for catchup tv apps like 4od, bbc iplayer etc, to play games, Skype, watch films, surf the internet, check email, etc etc

Hot find! the Apple tv running xbmc demand some ridiculous money!!

this turns a normal TV in to a smart TV running android jelly bean. you can put apps from the play store better than built in smart TV because on a smart TV you can't pick your own apps but on this you can. also Lets you browse the web and play films of a hard drive or USB stick.

Can someone please explain to me what is xbmc and how does it replaces sky and Netflix etc? Does it cost anything on top of buying this box?

Sorry I'm a bit new to tech world :O

lower spec dual core/1gb memory and more expensive though

got one, have some heat..:p

Tempted to get now as a 2nd box, don't suppose anyone willing to revisit after they get one and let me know what it's like? Would be interesting to see also what firmware it's running on.

Is this worth buying as an upgrade to a raspberry pi?

I doubt it is this is quad core with 2gb of memory and is very small that box looks tatty and is a poor spec.I have this box and its great easy to flash plenty of Roms available including back to stock theirs even a Ouya XBMC rom or a custom built XBMC app that runs on it its a great box very poweful with a big developer community behind it and i don't regret buying it at all and that's a very good price if it UK based, i paid £52 direct from Bluetimes in China

Heres the forum for it where you can get all the roms and TUTs

yes, though xbmc is still young on android so as I put above you need to use the latest dev builds to get support for hardware decoding with this chipset

You wont be disappointed its a powerful bit of kit and that was a great price i have Mame running on mine with the Roms and all the ondemand stuff its faultless i was using it the other day and when i remembered that it had cost me only £52 about 4 months back i couldn't believe it, when benchmarked it beats the SGS3 check out my link you will find loads of Roms and guides for it stick XBMC hub on and follow the instructions for hardware decoding and its great. I also have demanding games on mine and the wired Xbox 360 control works great it allows full control i tried it on GTA and was great.

I posted this but didn't buy this exact model as had already bought one off eBay. that disclaimer said it is excellent, have to use the bleeding edge dev builds of xbmc at the moment but it has reached a point where it is working well. the GUI flies, xbmc makes a great job of identifying local content, demand 5, ITV player and 4od not currently working with the latest xbmc though iPlayer is. Seems to play everything I throw at it, though still some xbmc bugs with ffwd. WiFi on mine is competent if not exceptional. I've not flashed the firmware still using stock, thought about it then decided I was happy with it and didn't want to mess it up.
I have a wdtv live SMP and hate it now because it is soooo slow and the firmware so flaky, this is vastly better! As soon as the latest xbmc is fully released then will probably get another for downstairs.

do you know if it Support hebrew language?
