Good price and no need to sideload apps. hot

Is this better than installing XBMC on my HP server?

Recently installed XBMC onto my server and I'm still new to the XBMC world.
What's the best plugin\app for watching movies and English football?

I wonder how quick this box would be to boot. My MX2 is hecka slow.

how do you get football on xbmc thanks in advance

SportsDevil is best for football.

Have the X7 - which looks very similar but has 2G ram and 16G storage (but is slightly more - £15 or so).

When getting one of these boxes just make sure there are active support forums with regular firmware updates.

Will this play TVCatchup live TV? I have a TV but no ariel near by and this seems a better prospect than shelling out for an ariel and freeview box.

99% certain you can. If there's an Android version of the app then you should be fine. You can also watch live tv by XBMC

You can get pretty much any channel you like with a bit of persistence. You'll find many links that don't work but quite a few that do. You just need to install add-ons like Mashup (lots of videos on Youtube - just make sure you use a recent one).

Thanks so much for your help. I noticed that DX do a version 8 for £82. I might go for that. Thanks again.

No problem. Highly recommend getting one of these. Lots of fun. You can get a generic one with the same spec/chips for half the price on ebay/Amazon, but you won't get the support or firmware updates that Minix provide.

I bought a version 8 with the air remote. Thanks so much for your help.

I've got the x8-h version, if you search for iptv by vdub25 on YouTube it'll show you how to install nearly 300 live tv channels including skysports bbc itv channel 4 sky movies etc.

Oh, and make sure you get an air mouse (or alternatively download the free official XBMC remote control app for Android/iOS)
