            But reviews say it's rubbish. Needs firmware fixes I think

              Well, everyone has an opinion and entitled too.

              New boxes do are a little rough around the edges and with time they can improve

              Going here getting the current update

              Improves google and no doubt many other things

              Video Play is just about getting the Codecs and stuff together

              Maybe a Custom roms should work as well.....many about to try....early days;

                Sure, but why they release stuff that ISNT ready/fixed is beyond comprehension
