have i missed what way box is connected to your internet,powerplugs,wifi or direct with lan?
3 Ethernet connected using now DHCP instead of Static IP
hows yours running mate?
The 0 cache XML removes the caching, so the box should in theory play straight away, clear out the cache via the cache cleaner in the main settings menu, mine plays 720p/1080p films, but it will cache if the film has 5.1 DTS or Dolby sound encoded due to the size of the file, mine did have that problem until i installed the 0 cache tweak
I think 0cache.xml allows unlimited caching to the box and having a fast BB speed it tends to fill up the internal memory to a saturation point very quickly.
I have messed around with various settings within XBMC and discovered that I am now able to play a full 1080p encoded with 5.1 DTS stream without any glitches whatsoever using Mickeys 1234.xml, limits amount of caching to a set value I think, together with a reduced BB speed of 2.5mb.
I hope my past rants haven't put anybody off from acquiring this box because when properly set up it is a great piece of kit to have.
not at all, great read and it helps people iron out the creases
think i have got stuck in reverse gear a tiny page with xbmc lol,i think i must have miss
that metro bit regarding the xbmc,wish i would stop dozing off in mid stream,even the keyboard does not work the way one thinks,grand delete this and it saves it.!
got a bit further on looking at gravity from icefilms and pressed a keyboard button and full screen moreso,impressed so far its just what one wants or needs to use.
just been on to chase mine up and it should be here tomorrow, but look, it says its no longer for sale and probably discontinued
wouldnt worry about it, Sumvision still produce them and as its XBMC your not reliant on them to update it, once XBMC works
Unfortunately the system in Android TV Box does not support multitouch method so that image in screen can not zoomed / minimized. The device also does not provide a motion sensor (accelerometer) that sometimes required for certain applications...
Huh? No one is talking about screens or minimizing anything or sensors on anything
Yes i have one of them on my nano box, really good for angrybirds and cut the rope :/
Did your box arrive yet Tongs?
yes today while in bed and the mrs was on a driving lesson, On the good ol nightshift, its getting redlivered tomorrow, so wont really have time to play with it till friday, probably have a quick go at shotting the giniatech on tomorrow when i awake from my beauty sleep
good stuff let us know how ya get on mate
right same boat again getting pretty pissed off at this thing now, got relevant files put them on usb stick and an sd card, wont show the files in recovery so tried the update on the app page and it only shows the SPI file. all renamed correctly,
right had to press context button about 15 times to see both files
oh little droid man is stuck again, wiped all settings and factory reset after applying the giniatech firmware and its fooked again!!!
