    I have not worked on this box in a while because simply...... No where to go!

    This box had huge potential and now after all these months..... It's kind of a bummer.....

    I am hoping to see AllWinner do something but alas at this point I fear this platform may be going by the way side

    In my case, Kodi will play absolutely any video file I throw at it, while Plex is picky and won't play back some individual video files that Kodi will.

    it feels like the difference maybe has something to do with Kodi having built into itself internally all of the codec playback software, while Plex maybe is relying on the Android systems video playback abilities?

    Or if that assumption is incorrect, why would Plex struggle with some video files, while Kodi can play Everything? I kind of prefer using Plex in many cases just because it generally seems quicker to get to the media of choice, while the interface on Kodi, if all you have is a mouse, is a little bit clunky. Plex makes it very quick to do just about anything even if you have a mouse, especially because when you interact with the keyboard I can use the microphone from the web camera that I have plugged into it, to speak the names of movies into search boxes. On Kodi I cannot do that.

    I think the only two problems that bother me with this ROM are the fact that while using Netflix the controls only show up for a split second, and the fact that Cody can play every video I throw at it, and Plex seems to have trouble with some. That's it. As far as I know the only problems that bother me on that machine. That machine gets used all the time at my house. It runs fantastic with the exception of those two problems.

    • I know Trebor posted a rom that came out. Not much will change with Allwinner devices they don' provide any support for their chipsets so keep that in mind when you see thier devices on sale.
      Many devices now mk902ii/Shield/Mk68 /Ugoos/neox5/minix5 (yes they still work lol) mk80 no it doesnt work lol.

Octacore processor 2Gb/16Gb. Gigabit ethernet and good wifi. At last check $55.99 US. Superceleron is creating some fantastic custom roms for this box and other S912 TV Boxes like it. Check out the Superceleron threads if you havent already. Cheers!
        Just saw this. Thanks.

        • @ etyrnal - Quick update, I ran into Finless Bob in the Minix forums. He's developed several roms for Minix tv boxes.

            Where are these forums? On freaktab? What Minix's best box? Is it even comparable to the top of the line Draco?

            • Minix has their own forums. They're proud of their TV boxes which means they are a bit more expensive than other Asian made tv boxes. But their customer support is excellent and firmware updates are every few months adding features and dealing with bugs and the like. I like their products but theyre not as much fun as the cheaper Chinese boxes and the custom roms you find on Freaktab. You can google Mini and check it out. I dont follow Allwinner products any longer. Poor customer support. The boxes you would most likely be interested in is the U1 or U9H. Finless made a custom rom for the U1 and last I heard, Minix was sending him a U9. Stay tuned.
