  • Perfect Media Center

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    + Excellent quality.
    + Very good features for the price.
    + Hardware decoder of several stream formats.
    + Volume control (as oppersite to Apple TV)
    + USB Host
    + Full ROOT access.
    + 1080p support.
    + Kernel/Firmware image is available for download on Ricomagic web-page.
    + AirPlay and DLNR is supported.
    + Playback on DLNR devices is supported (if enabled in the app you use).

    Cons:

    - The microSD/TransFlash slot requires the card to be inserted very deeply, so a tool is needed for both insertion and extraction. (But it's probably going to stay in there always anyway, so who cares?)
    - USB Webcam is not supported by the provided kernel, so can't be used as a web-phone.

    OtherThoughts:

    The perfect Media Center took only a few hours to set up after the hardware arrived.
    My recommendations are:
    * XBMC "Frodo" with NAVI-X plugin, and various live TV plugins.
    * VLC
    * PPStream Tablet
    * PPTV pad

    Bottomline:

    In a few hours with this product I had twice more features that I wanted then after several days hacking away on my Apple TV.
    This product gives me everything I need for my every day media needs, and has a very high value to the money ratio. Highly recommended.
