    BBC iPlayer, just about the worst App out. Doesn't work or work properly on any of my devices. Can you run it from the browser?

    Has anyone tried an MKV file through one of these? I am guessing VLC will handle it fine.

    Well, after 3 days I've decided to return this one. What they had sent me was not what I had ordered (a JUSTOP K9). It was the same specs, essentially a MK 809II but in some kid of generic case.
    The Flash Player didn't work correctly and neither did any of the 1080p modes - I could only get it to display 720p. From what I have seen and read these should work fine. Perhaps I just got a turkey

    Just recieved a Pivos Xios. Like the look of this as it has XBMC hardware decoder integration and you can run XBMC only in Linux or run Android JB and use the play store and all the apps etc.

    Ill post what I think of it if anyone is interested after I have put it through its passes and thrown some Add Ins a it.

    That looks like a rebranded Pivos XIOS DS Media Play (the specs are identical).

    Pivos employ two XBMC team members full-time so that's why it has full H/W acceleration.

    I have a MK 808 Bought from Geekbuying. bought mine five monthe ago for £45. now even you can get them from Amazon.co.uk for £30


    The Rom Come with this is not so good. had some wifi issues. so i decided to go for Finless 1.7c and 2dark4u custom kernal. This is the best combination so far works better for me. Work sweet. XBMC works really well. Im really happy with the product. bbc iplayer works in boat browser. Skype video call works fine. here is the review
