unlike one of their workers

I know what you're saying, brother, but...   most of the sellers on Amazon have eBay shops, so it's the same sellers selling cheaper, as EBay's fees are lower than Amazon and Amazon's returns depart

Yes ive got that, it works well   The Good thing with getting One from Droid box is they update the add ons once a week, no need to fuck about   well worth extra 25 quid

Been looking at these android tv boxes does any one on here have any knowledge about them and can you get a good amount of channel's on them

I've been looking at these android mini PC dongles. They plug into your HDMI port and you can then Use BBC iplayer, 4oD for TV. Or it can play downloaded films etc just like a tablet. They come with WiFi.

I must admit I've been looking at getting a "jailbroken" one, they claim to have access to loads of filum sites and also Skysports and billions of other sports channels.....I'm a bit dubious, does anybody have any experience of these things? - sounds a bit too good to be true really

Reet, I've had a look at a few of these. 

 

I see XBMC is being mentioned quite a lot.  WTF is XBMC? This one on Amazon seems to come preloaded with it anyway.

If I were to get this would it give me access to free movies, free sky sports and ting?

Edit:  I've had a look at some forums discussing accessing sports on XMBC and, as usual, the nerds on those forums are talking a completely different language - talking about downloading/updating files and dragging and dropping them into custom folders and shit like that.  I just want to point and click - anyone know if I can just do this?  If so I'm getting one, if not I'll continue to go to the pub to watch footie that's on Sky.

XBMC = Xbox Media Centre.

 

Back in the day, the original Xbox could be chipped to play copied games etc. You could also install XBMC. It would play DivX/Avi files, pretty much anything you threw at it, it would even try to play HD on a ten year old console (so it jerked its bollocks off). You could stream video and music from your house or from the internet.

 

People haven't really hacked the Xbox360 so they moved away from Xbox to Android, rather than let it die.

You know your shit when it comes to nerdy stuff like this, so do you reckon even a idiot like me would be able to stream free sports and movies using one of these pre-loaded XMBC Android boxes?

 

I can't help thinking there's got to be a catch though.  If it really is so simple why would anyone pay a subscription to Sky each month when they can just make a one-off payment of not much more, and get one of these?

Why not just get an online stream and HDMI lead from your tablet to your tellybox?

If I knew how to access free streams on my tablet then I would.  Tried it earlier in the season for footie and it wouldn't work.  Probably just me being a spack though.

 

Think I'm gonna treat myself to one of these Android G Box Midnight thingies as they look a piece of piss to operate (according to the Youtube videos). 

 

I shall report back...

Thanks for that YTA.  I'm gonna order one of the Midnight boxes today as I can't really be arsed with all the faffing for the sake of £70, but I'm sure the above will be a doddle for the more IT savvy amongst us.

 

I'll report back once I've got it.

I'll report back once I've got it......and decided I'm too much of a techno-spaz to get it to work, so have had to call up Carlos to come round and set it up properly for me

Right, I've got it up at running on a old PC that sits under my tele. Easier said than done. Managed to get a (shit) stream of a game up, it's the same streams as all the usual websites.

 

No sign of this Mashup thing so I'm using SportsDevil. No idea what this NaviX thing is doing.

Right, I've had some poor a Sky Sports up and a decent BTSport that I had to turn off as Lovejoy was on trying to recreate Soccer AM.

 

Got a good feed of RTP1 (Portugal) up so cannae complain.
