doubt these will come pre installed but they can be added very easily yourself on xbmc/kodi

is there any difference viewing wise or streaming ...than the m8 . and also is it worth buying m8s

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhaxqWcFeMo

it has less ram than the m8, but most likely will do teh same job

got 2 dead m8 boxes here overheating so a lowered powered but quad core cpu may be better. stay away from cheaper nasty rockchip boxes.

Can the Ram be upgraded to 2gb ?

Box comes installed with XBMC.but most sort after add ons you have to install from various repositories

nope no ram upgrades are possible, 40 quid is cheap but that said m8 boxes can be had for 50 quid or so off ebay

with these being made by people in the know, what's to say they don't put some sort of spyware on them, then access your network?

Purchased one of these last week, I have the minix 8 and find this better for video playback, in fact the minix is in the box and I am now happily using this.

how is netflix via hdmi on this? I find it stutters frames on my hudl 1 over hdmi bs say my kindle fire hd. but kindle fire hd cannot do subtitles over hdmi. my ps3 or windows 8 tablets are great at netflix over hdmi. full 1080p. I plugged in my note 2 last night over mhl but that was blocky so not 1080p. that would be my main use. thanks

I thought I'd try using Kodi/xbmc on my laptop before I forked out for one of these droid boxes. I've got a few things up and running so far but still haven't been able to find anything to let me view live Sky Sports and Box Office in HD, only in quite rubbish standard def. Anyone know how or can point me in the right direction to get these?

Had mine for a couple of months now, no problems at all. Saved me a fortune on NowTV subs.

Anyone know if the firmware / software can be updated on these ?

Fancy a tinker with the interface now ☺

Anyone know if this Mali chip is better than PowerVR for 1080p playback?

Easiest thing i found to do was go in to the Simple PVR client and setup the AcePlayer plugin and add the various addresses as favourites. Bloodzeed is probably the best channel for football but isn't a 24/7 stream. Only when there is a game on. But a quick google search will give you the various links for all channels to add such as Bein, fox sports etc...

hi, two m8 boxes you've got have packed in, was thinkin of getting one...the only real difference is the 2gb ram compared to the 1gb ram shown on this box eh ? an you think it can't handle it anyway ?

thought needed 2gb.for kodi to run HD well

That makes no sense at all !!

Will this box definitely handle HD well? I have an MX box at the moment & we can't watch HD at all as it's constantly buffering & freezing. Pretty sure it's not down to broadband speed, as that's just over 7mbs.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I would suggest to try and play a pre-downloaded HD video from its storage and isolate the problem. Normally, these devices should have no issues playing HD content.

Just to add you can buy this box without retail packaging for around £31 :-)

What do you mean by setting up ?

Seo Michael has good info... Just Google that..

I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago. All I have done with it is install ShowBox. I watched a you tube vid about setup and installing 1 channel but get invalid URL, the language always says Singapore. I am not really sure what I am doing with it and instructions are non existent. Anyone point me in the direction of support forums or setup advice please?
