Ive been using the MK808 and your ROMs and they have been great. I just got the iMito Mx1 and its awesome except that it has trouble connecting to my wifi network when using WPA2. I worked around the issue buy adding another router that I had and setting it up with no password. I've heard a lot of other people are having the same issue and I was wondering if you could help. I want to give it a highly recommend on YouTube but I need to figure out the network issue before I do that. Other than that the iMito is great. Its a nice improvement over the MK808 and having Bluetooth was sorely need.

      Thanks so much,
      Rivers
      I am not having any issues connecting to my wifi via WPA or WPA2. It seems this wifi thing is hit and miss WITH ALL of these Android devices. Not just TV players either! If you look around you will see every TV player someone has issues with wifi. Also look at all the tablet forums and again, there is always someone that has connect issues. Either connection problem or weak wifi signal indicator. I wont go into the dropping from high to low speed e.g. from 65 to 5mbps, that is an issue in the ROM in my opinion.

      Most posts on forums are bad news. People come and ask because they need help. You rarely hear from people that do not have issues. So realize all these posts about issues your not seeing the majority.

      Anyway, I am just now getting into the new update from Imito and will test this latest update. I assume this is what your using?

        I have been having some spotty WiFi issues where the connection will drop from 65mbps all the way down to 1mbps. I ran a WiFi Analyzer app and noticed several networks on the same channel. After changing the router's channel to a less-used one, it has been a bit more stable (although does not stay steady at 65mbps) I think the lowest that it has hit since changing channels and the power adapter was 13mbps, but jumped back up to 50-something mbps. Whereas before the channel-adjustment, it dipped to 1mbps and would stay there... even if it was within four feet and clear view of the router. My network is WPA2 protected, but I have had no issues connecting to the router, just in maintaining the speed.

        On a side note, will you be developing a custom ROM for the MX1? I've read about some of the development that you've made on the other devices and would love to see what you can do for the MX1 users out there.

              A Couple Questions on the iMito X1

              Hi neighbor, I live down the road from you in Dayton. Last evening I ordered an iMito MX1, so I'd be very interested in hearing more about your hands on experience with the device. It is my understanding that it supports usb RJ45 Ethernet and a usb sound card on the stock ROM out of the box. Have you tested this functionality? Also I'd appreciate any other advice non-obvious advice that would be useful.

              I noticed that you asked about the development of a custom ROM. What issues would a custom ROM be addressing other than wifi?

              I'd appreciate any input you can offer.

                Now that is to funny because I thought you were talking to me as I am in the Houston area surrounded by Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton LOL and I'm actually from Sprintgfield OH on top of that. That really tripped me up since I never said where I was from till I seen the Cincinnati guy lol


                Anyways, a custom ROM lets you get rid of bloatware, make speed improvements, memory management improvements. And those are just on the surface, there are tons of other tweaks that can be had to make it more robust and compatible. I've been in the Android field for nearly 3 years and let me tell you that one device can behave totally different with different ROM's.

                Not sure on the USB Ethernet.

                  A pleasure to meet you. It seems I have lots of Ohio neighbors.

                  I grew up in Dayton and worked in both Columbus and Cincinnati. I graduated from Wittenberg in Springfield a long time ago, 1976. I also have relatives in Cleveland, but we don't talk about them.

                  I suppose my question on the custom ROM was spurred by the rave reviews I've seen about the stock ROM on the MX1 and I tend to be an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" kind of guy and to be honest the great reviews on the stock ROM had a lot of influence on my choosing the MX1. I've been a Systems Analyst for over 30 years, so I don't expect I will have any major problems flashing the device, however I do prefer a device that I will not have to take from the mailbox and immediately be required to upgrade it before I can have a little fun with it.

                  I do hope MX1 can do a usb sound card out of the box for me. Though I do want wired ethernet also, I can most likely live with wifi for awhile since MX1 will be located about 15 feet from my router with no walls in between. However the sound on my TV sucks, so connecting it to an amp for surround sound is pretty much a necessity that would cause me to flash it sooner than later.

                    Yep where I work, in my building, there is a guy from Springfield OH... so funny having two of us from the same city like that.

                    It should and will work OOTB but the new ROM from iMito improves upon things. And from what I can tell these devices can do audio and ethernet from the USB. Will have to wait and see once you get yours, but for me my device will be 10 inches from my primary router and my TV is fully digital with a 5.1 digital surround sound system so an external card is not need for me. But both of those should work out of the box.... I think...

                      does this thing overheat and does it have TRUE (not scaled) 1080p?

                        No TRUE (not scaled) 1080p. No factory stock dongle yet does.

                              Nice! I miss the old hockey rivalry days between Cincinnati & Dayton. I need to get back up to your neck of the woods. I hear they put in a new minor pro team in O'Hare Arena.

                              I do not have a USB sound card that I can test. I did however end up buying an RJ45 USB Adapter that should arrive tomorrow. I will let you know how that works out. Everything has been great except the WiFi, but I haven't been able to pinpoint why the connection is so flaky.

                              I get an AnTuTu Benchmark in the low 6000s.
                              A/V Sync is fine in YouTube, Plex Media, and streaming movies.
                              720p playback is fine. I don't have any 1080p I can test.
                              I'm using a bluetooth mouse and keyboard. No issues there, works flawlessly.
                              Played a handful of games. Graphic performance is good to great.
                              I recommend using the TV Launcher Pro that a user on this site created. It really makes for a much nicer experience.
                              When playing movies or games, the device can get hot to the touch but I have not noticed any impact on performance.
                              The WiFi peaks at 65mbps, but can drop as low as 1mbps. I'm on a WPA2 protected network. No issues finding and connecting to it, just in maintaining speed. Other WiFi devices in the area have no issues whatsoever, so I'm going to try the RJ45 adapter tomorrow.

                              I have updated the firmware with the manufacturer's update. It was a similar experience before and after though.

                                I don't follow hockey, however I believe Dayton has a team at either Hara Arena or the Nutter Center. I'm more of an NFL fan particularly of the Steelers, which doesn't make me a lot of friends in this area. I tend not to travel any further south than to the MicroCenter store in Sharonville. I just hate driving I-75.

                                I've read that a wired connection is a bit erratic without a powered usb hub, so I ordered this one
                                http://www.amazon.com/Plugable-Port-...=I8SGJX5XEFWGR
                                and this usb ethernet adapter to go with it.
                                http://www.amazon.com/BobjGear-Ether...=IZW6NIEBR8IHI
                                Both have great user reviews from people using them on Android devices. My house has been ethernet wired for years, so I'd like to by pass the wifi issues completely. Also I believe that any MiniPC stick should run cooler with the wifi turned off. We shall see how much of that is true once I receive mine.

                                Are their any BT adapters that can connect to the RCA inputs on an amplifier? I've never used any BT based products. I ordered a low end usb sound card that works on an MK808 according to several reviewers, so I'm giving that a shot first,

                                I haven't been this excited about a tech product in ages. I hope I haven't set myself up for disappointment.

                                Nice meeting you.
