Just wondering what is working the best for you. My best success so far in quad core is the new CR11 by Cloudnetgo, Huawei M310 and my old YW9300 with the Samsung processor. I'm looking forward to trying the new Geniatech ATV1800 with the new Amlogic quad core processor and octo core gpu. Its still hard to beat the old dual core Uhost2 which plays everything well

I measure my success by trying, testing and trying again. The different benchmark test give you an idea but the fastest antutu is not necessarily the fastest machine. These android mini computers and xbmc for android are still in their infancy with no outright winners as yet. They are a lot of fun if you like to try different roms and versions of software. The ones I mentioned in my opening post seem to work best for me as an "out of the box" experience. Not perfect by any means but reasonably functional.

Do you have any idea of when the Geniatech ATV1800 will be released? It seems to have been announced months ago. I saw a YouTube video of an Amlogic rep. giving a demo of the related ATV580 with a M802 processor at a Hong Kong trade show, but no announcements about the release date of that one either.

Last thing I heard was early December. I also read that the M802 will be a series of processors. I'm gonna wait it out untill I hear some reports before I jump on the bandwagon.

Thanks Reefmonger. I had the same idea about waiting for reports. I hope the delay is for Geniatech to get things just right before launch!

I've also been curious about the new Matricom G-box Sigma running on Ubuntu. Waiting for more reviews on it on Amazon, YouTube, etc.

It sure would be nice to have a good working version of linux on an android tv box but from what I've heard and read we are not there yet. The reviews should prove interesting.

I'm using the G-Box Midnight MX2, and it's been great. Streams come in fine from various add-ons, and HD files play smoothly over the wireless home network (after increasing the cache to 200 MB via some XML code).

Got the Droid TV MX last week and have been tinkering with XBMC. I cut the cord on cable years ago and I have been looking for something to replace my long in the tooth WD Live TV box.

So far I am happy with it. Does lots of things that the WD box could not, and the app / repositories are neat. It can be overwhelming getting it setup the way you want it but I am sort of a nerd so I enjoy it. :cool:

Yah I think half the fun is setting it up. I can't stop trying different stuff. Great value for the dollar. I've been fooling around with the Minix Beta2 version of xbmc on my old X5. Seems to be a definite improvement. Time will tell
