    Default New Android TV box

    Just thought I would post a quick teaser here.
    We are in the process of developing an Android TV box, mainly to run XBMC. With various plugins already installed. So its basically a plug n play media center box.
    Also with various home automation companies like Loxone etc now offering Android apps to control their stuff, you could use your telly to turn on the lights or see who is at the door. Comes with a standard IR remote.
    Optional extras: will include a gyroscopic remote (think wii controller), that also has a full qwerty keyboard on the reverse side. The other extra will be of course be a hard drive, various size options available.
    We are doing this mainly for our European clients, but I guess there will be a few UK based people that this would be of interest to as well.
    Pictures will follow and price for basic model will be about 150 to 160 euros plus about 15 to 20 euros in shipping. The gyroscopic remote will be about 25 to 35 euros (currently testing a few possibilities here)

    Basic specs are

    • Amlogic S802 2.0GHz Quad core, Support Bluetooth 4.0. Via a USB dongle

    • Octa-Core Mali-450 GPU

    • Android 4.4 Kitkat

    • 3 x USB2.0 ports for a keyboard / mouse, or other USB accessory.

    • SD card slot for SD card up to a max 32 GB

    • RAM 2GB DDR3, 8GB Nand Flash

    • 10/100M LAN, 802.11b/g/n Dual Band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz/5GHz)

    • Support 4K H.265 Video Decoding and Output

    • All aluminum housing

    • Optional Internal 2.5 In. SATA HDD (up to 1Tb)(This is a special order item)and you will loose 2 USB ports

    • HDMI, SPDIF, RCA stereo and composite video outputs

    Cost is 150 euros plus about 18 euros for shipping would need to check the shipping price. We have sold out of our first batch already.
    If you need the internal HD bay then you need to specify this as this will be a special order version. Reason for this is that you only get one USB port instead of three. MY test version has three USB ports and no internal HD bay. I have an external hard drive on one usb, a web cam on another and keyboard etc on the last one. I also have an SD card inserted which has my music on it.
    Have updated the specs above and added a photo.
