    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.

    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...
