> It looks like an interesting Android based VBox. I've got so many questions though. Wish they would be more specific about the specs on their website
Yeah, I had the same doubts. Were it not for my geo's law that allows me to send back stuff ordered on-line for two weeks I would never have ordered one.
> Any idea what processor is in it?
> How much memory does it have?
Seems to be 2 GiB, guessed based on `SysConfigLog.txt` (you get that in a tarball when pulling logs in the webUI) containing a top output.
`Mem: 1902216k total, 1211044k used, 691172k free, 808k buffers`
but without the ability to shell ionto this box I can nto be sure, neither can I be sure how they split the AndroidTV part (which I do not use) and the tuner part.
> What about internal storage? Can you use the SD card slot to expand the available internal storage.
So far tests with a 32 GiB card I had in a drawer seem fine, soon™ I should receive a 256GiB card to test with.
> Can you add apps from the PlayStore like Netflix, Prime, BBC iPlayer, etc.
> Can it stream 4 channels and playback something in Netflix or MythTV OK?
Did not try, my use case is network tuner only, the box is sitting in a shelf far away from any HDMI capable screens and in the TV area all available cable connections are used for my dreambox. Sorry.
> Will it run the Android port of MythTV at least for the frontend?
(this is not related to this HW, but the TV area has a NV shield, so it will be interesting for me to run the frontend on that)
I did not know there was one, was https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Packages
not the corerct place for me to look?
Where can I find that port (in F-Droid I find only 2 remotes and in the Google Play store I am, as always, unsure if the search hit is kosher or some dodgy thing banking on people taking teh first search result :-/
> If it could be used as a frontend and also as a 4 tuner network soucre for the backend to use then that would be really cool.
> I'm tempted to get one to find out but can't really justify paying £160 for one to play with at the moment. I already have 3 different VBoxes all different models 2 of which they gave me for adding the VBox support to MythTV. Doubt they'd want to give me another one though
TBH, I would just ask. After all you delivered supporty in MythTV for the non-android models
