        Interesting

        Thank you for sharing the info.

        I've been waiting for an A80 based TV box and looking forward to the market release of one.

        Please do share more info when you have it.

        I'm hoping that Google will release Android L for ARM soon and maybe it gets on devices like this one.

            And who wants to believe that the 55K is true and not faked at kernel?

            Anyway... nice to see the first A80 device... but now my favourite question: What's about heat at this case?

              Open BIG picture here


              1080p-60 - MX Player (100%)


              Open BIG picture here


              No other configuration than 100% let me see the black and white dots.

              Note that first one looks like ONLY ONE black pixel is managed, but it looks not correct.

              Another important thing, also playing with the ANDROID SCREEN SCALE (do not talking about MX Player Scale) these results are different. These pictures was with an ANDROID 100% SCREEN SCALE.
              I'm right that it looks better than the rk3288 at the moment?

                Does it have a support for HDMI-CEC.
                It is quite interesting that none of the TV Boxes or TV Sticks have so far. And this IMHO is a must-have feature. Instead of providing one, they are adding costly IR receivers and remote controls

                  innovation

                  We need a completed box like rk3288 HDMI IN,a powerful SoC but the same specification, besides, USB 3.0, gigabit ethernet.
                  Make at less 3 model;
                  1- no WiFi,Bluetooth yes
                  2- gigabit and Bluetooth
                  3- HDMI in/out
                  Of course ram 16,64,128 gigabytes, no 8 please,and a nice fan and heatsink .

                    Here also exist an older datasheet:
                    http://linux-sunxi.org/A80

                    Anyone have an idea how do they handle the SATA connection? Via SPI?

                          Any approx ETA of the market release of this box?

                          My experience with Android boxes isn't much let alone the knowledge of the manufacturers making these devices.

                          Is Zero Devices a good maker.. reputed in this area?

                            ZERO Devices was probably the first brand selling TV Boxes with Android. As example, this thread from MAY 2012: http://androidforums.com/android-tv/...oid-4-0-a.html

                            And this is a stick, 2 boxes was sold before this product.

                            ZERO Devices is a partner of Sunchip, what is a big design house in Shenzhen.

                              - It's highly probably we will see a Linux distro running in this box
