    Recommendation for TV Stick

    Hey,

    I'm hoping some of you would be kind enough to give me some recommendations on a Android TV stick.

    I was asked to put up a Digital Ad display (Basicly just a couple video's playing in repeated loop) in our lobby. I would like to be able to replace the boot logo on the unit so a firmware i could modify would great.

    I've owned a few Rockchip (imitio MX1/MX2 and a UG802) based units personally in the past and hated them. They always had such bad Wifi Connections in them.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

        The reviews only tell part of the picture and i've come to learn to take most of those reviews with a grain of salt. When I first picked up my Imito and UG802 did i see mention in the reviews about about poor wifi. Many reviews also don't mention anything about customizing firmwares. Which is why i decided to ask for, for at the very least, ideas for a start point.

        I know i'll end up writing a launcher app to replace the main one just to make sure the video plays with out me having to go down and do something every morning.

        I did look at those before posting, but seemed incredible difficult to do any sort of modifications to. From what i saw it seemed really easy to brick the unit to just get google play on in.

          Hi ,

          important are your needs , what you want to do with the Stick , AML & RK , both FW can be

          modified , you only need root , i think a S912 2/8GB , or similar is good enough , best to look

          for ReviewVideos of Sticks on YT , GooglePlayStore is on nearly every Stick already installed ,

          good luck / gefattern
