Possibly a stupid question as I expect I already know the answer but if I were to install the Amazon Video App onto this would it output in 4k? I have a 2015 Sony TV which, when new, worked very well with the Amazon app. However thanks to a load of crap sony updates 4k programs on it are now nigh on unwatchable due to jumping. I am loath to spend £70 on a Fire TV.

Is this overkill if I only have a 1080 full HD TV?

No, it still provides the same functionality on a 1080p screen. This is the best price / feature spec ex-UK I have seen for a long time. Heat.

Are there any community built ROMs for TV boxes? I'm a bit suspicious, the one I bought was stuffed with all kinds of apps that I would never use and who knows what's in the ROM.

Any way to change to a UK plug, or does it come with an adapter or similar to use over here?

​this is a cut down crippled chip will output 4k @ 30 fps, check out the v88 with similar specs for £17 posted a few days ago

There's already some posts on Freaktab with many high quality pix / spec results on pg2, but not sure about 3rd party ROMs yet for this relatively new W-suffixed SoC (rather than earlier and more established X-suffixed). The manufacturer has already released one firmware update, which may or may not be the ROM installed on the boxes that Gearbest are shifting.

Yes u can

It's probably unlikely that there will be much in the way of custom firmware support because it's a bottom of the chain model.

Libreelec is the best solution if media playing is the top priority.

Amlogic S905W

I'm fairly sure you can simply wire up a UK plug to this

No it's not a Rockchip SOC.

Er, assuming serious question: the Amlogic S905W is manufactured by Amlogic (AML) and generally better-supported than Rockchip alternatives.

The power supply is contained within a powerbrick / wallwart, so effectively impractical to crack open and wire to a UK plug. A simple plug-in device similar to a shuttered and fused shaver adapter may be the easiest method to adapt to standard UK wall socket, random example at amazon.co.uk/dp/…RG/ or buy the Maplin PSU at £1.23 cnc and use a suitable USB to DC barrel cable (barrel size not stated but likely similar to 2.1or2.5/5.5 which are usually 99p delivered ex-UK via the bay / Amazon but check barrel size required first).

Not unless you're good at modding. This might work but you would have to use a power strip or 2 way adaptor to get enough clearance. cpc.farnell.com/pow…ors

Better to just replace with a UK-sold PSU, some of the grey import stuff is not good quality.

I need a cheap windows 10 equivalent. If anyone knows?

Excuse my stupidity but aren't "these" boxes illegal now in the U.K. to own? Watched panorama on how if you buy one of Amazon/eBay you can get prison sentence! I'm clearly lost here?

It's a computer. It's what you do with it that might be illegal, definately not owning one.

Have used surplus Now tv box's (white one) original power supply, in the past, for these tv boxes. Just check rating, voltage etc and pin polarity of connector.

Good all round review here: Lon.TV@youtube

Just ordered one. Thanks OP.

Omg watched panorama and trust their reporting. Lmao sorry but I wouldn't trust the "impartial" reporting on anything. These are perfectly legal android computers. The kodi and ones which are fully loaded with pirate add ons are the ones that's illegal. Comment for funniest and worst scare mongering goes to yourself. Exactly the scare mongering to be expected from BBC and others. Like they are gonna even put people in prison as prisons are full. Only large scale players might be considered if it came to it

Wouldn't trust a word you say personally. Read many of your comments on various boxes. This chip isn't a crippled chip the 905 is a decent chip and better than than rock chip one your referring to as well. I don't think your advice is any good as have a few of these same specs and no issues at all

No need for concern. The boxes are perfectly legal to own and use. The illegality is when a device (be it a PC, smartphone, Android box, laptop, tablet etc) is used to access, watch, download or share copyrighted material of which the user has no legal permission to do so.

Still waiting for my order from the end of a August ( Custom service is very poor when things go wrong )
Here is a example

Hasn't done it here. Tried that still showing £8.80

bought one thanks. i've been wanting to see if a box is better than using a chromecast since my tv also supports 4k i'll give this a go

Is it true that the Now TV app will not stream via HDMI on this box?

​no, you can get it through a webview Amazon app I think.

you won't get better than 480p netflix without correct DRM, you need widevine level 1 and hdcp.

mecool m8s pro + has both of these for £29, it is far superior.

​yeah, apart from nothing 4k will work, because ethos box has no DRM. netflix will be 480p, and Amazon will also only be 480p.

mecool will do 1080p netflix(£29), wetek does 4k(£100), so does xaiomi mi box (£70).
