G-Box MX2

Posted on Jan 17, 2014 4:07 AM, boards.ie - HTPC & Media Centre | boards.ie

Hi Guys.
I've been tooling around with XBMC the last few days on my raspberry pi, and I'm liking it. I had a playon hd mini media player already, which I'm thinking i'll replace with an xbmc box. The raspberry pi is grand, but it's a bit unstable, and the killer blow for me is the lack of a digital audio out (my AV receiver just passes through HDMI audio, and I'm not interested in upgrading that at this point).
So I did a quick google and saw some ouya love, but realised that also lacks digital audio output. So, I'm thinking of the G-Box MX2 from amazon.com. I'm going to the US in a week or so anyway, so for $104 it seems good value.
So, before I go ahead with it, any comments/concerns/suggestions from people on here who know much more about this stuff than I?
Thanks,
Ronan

Alternative To Comcast And Cable Box

Posted on Dec 21, 2013 12:51 PM,

My grandmother has basic comcast cable and a cable box from them. They started encrypting the channels a while back, so you can't just run the signal into the TV. It's a shame, because that was a lot simpler for her, and the TV is perfectly capable of tuning into an HD signal by itself. It was working nicely ...
