One of my mates bought a xbmc and its done his head in for days, a message 'Out Of Range' kept popping up on his Sony Bravia, yet it worked on other TV's. At first he thought it was a wi-fi issue but it's not, it's the screen resolutions on the TV what are stopping the xbmc being viewed.

I just thought I'd put this on here to help anyone going through the same problem and wasting the same amount of time 'my mate' has.

Is it worth me buying one of the Android boxes rather than fucking about trying to jailbreak the apple tv piece of shit my missus bought last year?

 

After messing about with the apple thing its very restrictive, typical apple robbing bastards.

You can't (or couldn't) jailbreak a version 3. The old version 2 with a hard drive would run XBMC, same as a droid stick thing.

 

All it does is mirror your iPad/iPhone, the rest is pointless. My NowTV box and Chromecast dongle replaced it for half the cost.

I've just bought the T8 from droidbox.co.uk and it's excellent, pisses all over my old iMX6 box. I managed to watch Bournemouth v Watford in full proper HD on Friday night. I'm well pleased with it and can't believe how much better it is.....and it's far quicker as well, I experienced no buffering at all

That's the one, I got mine from Droidbox.co.uk for £94.95 last week. I already had an air-mouse remote control thingy at home, so didn't need one to come with the box. Having said that, the remote that did come with the T8 is actually really good (a massive improvement on the cack one that came with the iMX6)

Right, I'm getting one. What sort of broadband speed do you need for this? Plusnet are saying I'm on about 18mb, speed checker showing I'm on about 13mb. Would that be enough to watch buffer free? Or would I need a faster connection?

Mines fine on 6mb

I think Tomski has recently got one as well. 

 

You should get one, it's quality. Pisses all over the old style/type iMX6 box

Got mine recently too and its very good. Easily worth the money.

 

The hardest bit is picking something to watch, too much to fucking choose from!

I was dicking about with this earlier and got to a point where it asked what my tv network in the usa was? What did you put in for that?

Ive seen lots of links to sky atlantic but not tried any, all tv and films are pretty much on demand anyway.

 

Only stuff i need to find live is sports. Premiership football, golf and anything American is pretty much taken care of by NBC sports.

 

Loads of links to sky sports channels for other stuff i watch so not had any trouble finding anything i usually watch so far.

 

For a one off payment of 70-100 quid or whatever you pay i cant see how anyone cant get their moneys worth.

 

Obviously a bit more fiddly than having a sky/virgin box but there is a lot more options too so good and bad points.
