    I had problems with subtitles in xbmc so i installed latest xbmc and now i have subtitles but video working only under software acceleration. Hardware acceleration was working on stock xbmc now it does not working, only blank screen during playback.

    I found new firmware for m8 boxes on this page:

    http://www.allminipc.com/forum/viewt...hp?f=22&t=1186


    my question is have any of you tried this firmware and does it work? If it is working does xbmc have problems mentioned above?

    I heard using hw accelleration but ONLY with libstagefright ON should do the trick....
    that is, on gotham 13.1 and stock fw

    can you please confirm?

      I only wish! Unfortunately there are misrepresentations even on Amazon! I bought my first M8 on Amazon from a dealer who misrepresented the product when it was first coming out by calling it a different name!!! They got away with it at first by including a dongle made by the real company. Amazon finally slapped them on the knuckles several times before they got religion. I don't have that box any longer, the dealer was forced to eat it not too long ago!

      I have XBMC up and running now like I have never seen it before. No spooling, skipping, dropping out, tearing. Just plain old ordinary 1080p, 720, and yes SD for those shows that have yet to discover the wonderful world of HD, or (GASP!) those illegal channels. No bios issues such as updates every few weeks or days, just after you got everything the way you want it. Unfortunately if it comes from China, it probably has a problem, will have a problem, (after playing with 5 one hundred dollar boxes, I know) or else it came from one of the, (for lack of a better term), colonies such as Macau. My new shiny black and silver toy even has a hard drive in it, one heck of a CPU (overkill) and a pretty good GPU that just "does it"! 4 Meg of dual RAM, 260 Gb, SSD, built in Bluetooth with a real Bluetooth antenna! Gigabit Lan conection, Wifi with its own antenna, 4 USB slots, Multi SD slot. Yeah its exciting to have. Most important, for those of us who just don't want our wives complaining about our noses stuck inside of funny looking boxes and yet another excuse to play with the TV image, its really a delight.

      The brand? I'm afraid if its not made on mainland China, it's illegal on this website!!

          Fair question, Just a tad over 300.00, OpenELEC, the SSD and the memory I already had. Could have gone for a lesser box low 2's but, got pissed off at all the hours spending on junk goods with poor firmware, bypassed the tack hammer and bought the larger one. Way I look at it, that is just about 3 months of Direct TV. I get to go to bed at night with my beautiful wife of 15 years. ( That alone is priceless ), and with the FTV Guide programmed, she can use it without being reduced to tears because the box froze or some other stupid thing that occurred. In my other life, besides my engineering duties, I was responsible for the companies certification labs for desktops, laptops and small servers. When we released a product to sales, that product worked. The manuals were in real English printed on high quality paper. They all had a proven Bios base that had already seen its baptism of fire over time so we were not reinventing the wheel like these Chinese boxes with their spaghetti code ship with. And oh yes, my Macu based box has REAL technical support, with live people who speak very good English, or something like 11 other languages.

          Now if you will scuze me, the pretty little thing laying next to me just tapped me on the shoulder!!!

              Woke up this morning to find my wife and our next door neighbor having coffee, flipping around the channels on FTV guide as if they were old pro's. Now that is priceless. Maybe overkill but it works 100% of the time (PERIOD) Looks like the good people on Macau have something mainland China does not have. They "Know" what they are doing.

                            looking at your answers seems that you are angry with us, and I can't find why, let me tell you my story with android TV devices.
                            I had an HTPC in my main TV, mainly to download torrents, and use like a media center, first time I heard about Android sticks I found they funny, very cheap, and low power consumers, so I decide to try a mk808b, with it at stock, it was a pain in the ass, it works but with a lot of bugs, then I found this site, I tested my first custom by Bob, and the device improved a lot in stability and usage experience. It replaced my HTPC functions. Actually the rk3188 and S802 devices are a way better, I can use them to download, use xbmc, and my daughter can play Android games on it, low power consumption, and a lot of fun playing and learning about this devices, here you will not find anyone to say that this Android devices are powerful that an x86 PC, but they are cheaper, lower energy consumption, and for most of users are happy with them. They are not enough for you, that's OK, no all users need a HTPC. Some users are happy with their Android gadgets .
