Dvico TViX XROID A1 Specifications, Firmware and Manuals

Back in November 2010, Sigma Designs and Dvico announced the first Android Set-top Box based on SMP8656 series would be available by Q1 2011. However, porting Android to a media player platform is rather time consuming and TViX XROID A1 is not yet available (August 2011).

Digital Versus got a pre-release version, but the firmware is still not stable enough for them to provide a meaningful review.

Dvico has nonetheless setup a webpage for XROID A1 with the specifications, features, firmware and user manual for the lucky ones that could get a pre-release hardware.

Here’s a summary of the specifications:

The firmware (currently “TViX Xroid A1 Official Firmware 0.9.46“) is available for download, but as it is encrypted, we cannot check its content.

I could not find retail price information for the device yet. I finally found some information about Tvix Xroid A1 price. It will be sold for 299 GBP / 334.58 Euros (including VAT) and be available end of September on KJ Global.
