Salutations... :good:

I used to use an Android (Jellybean) Asus tablet to stream.
Then I purchased a third party Android (Jellybean) TV box.

For n00bs any of these class of devices are wonderful hassle-free solutions. Problem for me
was I could not reliably "root" them w/o bricking ($$$) them and Google keeps making it harder.

Also IMHO... :oops: everyone should stay away from "smart" TV's for 2 reasons...

If they are are compromised (firmware bug?) or fail... your technicians bill will be a king$ ransom. Also they are non-upgradeable
(or you will again pay a king$ ransom) so you will be back to standalone's anyway which are inherently cheaper and likely "smarter".

If you are not a n00b then why not enjoy a dual boot Chromebox w/ Porteus? :unknown:
(see... http://webwarper.net/ww/~av/forum.porte ... =39&t=5927 )

"Best Regards"... :beer:

Does this device support signed firmware?
Most Chrome products use signed firmware.

eg... Coreboot ... Libreboot
At all times my preference is to speak for myself... so I refuse to tell anyone what to do.
However... if they question (or challenge) me I reserve the right to tell them what I would do.

Apple TV, Roku, and others have limited apps. I would be cautious of Chinese made products. Piracy/Identity theft being a real concern.

I would suggest you to get Nvidia tv box, I read many android tv box reviews and after reading all of them I brought this box.. and It's 3 month, I am having no problem with it.
