    Glad to see that Minix going with amilogic too. Hopefully rockchip gets a kick in balls for the stunt they pulled with the 3188T chip i for one i am looking forward to this platform if not for anything my fricking shipping costs on returns for crap product.
    - It seems it is not yet certain that Minix will go with Amlogic. They will make an announcement about it in April. They acknowledge there is a lot of confusion about the various s802 chipset variants. Here is a Facebook posting exchange I found:

      i like minix comments that not having digital is dumb so they wont even look at if it doesnt have it.


      Once its released as i know a few will as always push to get out to say (here it is!!!) with nothing working again lol...
      Many devices now mk902ii/Shield/Mk68 /Ugoos/neox5/minix5 (yes they still work lol) mk80 no it doesnt work lol.

        Yesterday I got confirmation from AMLogic directly that there will be different versions of the S802.

        AmLogic:
        "For your information, our S802 chipset has been MP for a while and some new products powered by this SoC have just been announced in CCBN, the STB electronic even in China.
        And for your concern regarding audio passthrough, we are Dolby and DTS licensee, so we have no problem supporting Dolby and DTS in our solution."

        Me;
        "How about different S802 versions, will it be a D and a DD version? If so, will only some of them be able to use DB and DTS passthrough?"

        AmLogic:
        "We do have specific part number name for Dolby/DTS enabled chipset.

        As you may be aware of that there is some HW change for Dolby/DTS enable other than SW."

        "..we do have specific part number for Dolby/DTS enabled chipset."

        Me;
        "Ok, would you be kind to share the name of the different versions?"

        AmLogic;
        "According to Company policy, I couldn't share such information without NDA in place."

          model names are not secret, why NDA is required?

            in otherwords they don't know lol

            but I am willing to bet that 109 bucks will land you an NDA in a month when the product is released LOL

              Well I hope Minix does go with AML. They have indicated to me they are but I also understand things can change.

              Trust that D33 and I will both get AML boxes as they come out even if I have to buy them myself!

              As far as RockChip goes, remember they are coming out with their octa cores soon. But they better fix the crap kernels and Android OS they keep making! Remember we don't have 100% sources for RK devices so we cant fix everything and for sure RK doesn't seem to want to fix things either. The screen flicker has been going on for 5 months now and I don't think RK even cares!
              I am hoping we don't have the same cycle of crap like every other RK release in the last 3 years. That is first ROMs are junk and only get "somewhat" fixed over time and by the time they get close, RK releases another new chipset.
              If RK would just release full sources, this stuff would get fixed.

                I concur with your assessment about rockchip. After sampling allwinner and amlogic, I will NEVER purchase another device with a rockchip CPU. Their specs look great on paper, but in the real world, they are awefull compared to the other devices.

                  100% agreement with the both of you!

                  That is why my next device, even if it is less powerful, will be non RK based.

                    If someone doesn't send a box to bob and d33 then bad karma will follow Hmmmmmm.

                        There is no way the amlogic /mali 450 beasts will be less powerfull then crappy RK boxes mate.

                        Amlogic + Linux + xbmc = perfection!!!

                          mk908 + xbmc = best media experience

                          i tried many devices cs868 (allwinner a31) droidstick (aml8726-mx) stv9803 (tcc8920st) and xbmc was a nightmare but i never had any problems with mk908 its perfect with libstagefright

                            You have not tried a AML M6 with Mali and XBMC yet. Works perfect but I am no XBMC expert.

                            It's becoming my "GO TO" TV box lately.

                                Hey bob and freaktab just wondering if this is also m6 or not.

                                http://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/290021085.html
                                i bought it a while ago anf its a pain to flash firmware on it.

                                I really hate amlogic because of the way they name their cpu's it is really confusing there is like 30 different types of aml8926 some single core some double core some clocked at 800mhz some 1.6ghz i also have a box called the neoniq smart tv box i also made a video about it a while ago because i did not know what it was at the time



                                also what do u think of Tronsmart Prometheus

                                http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Trons...ck-313667.html

                                i might but if you guys think its good for xbmc its prity cheap considering it has ethernet
