Jynxbox Android HD runs Android 4.0.4, supports XBMC with hardware accelerated video decoding, and you can connect a USB ATSC Tuner, USB keyboard/mouse, a USB Bluetooth dongle, etc.. to extend the capabilities of the device.
The media players comes with with a 2.4Ghz motion remote with Gyro (So the IR sensor might be kind of useless), and a 120V/240V A/C power adapter. It can be bought directly on Jynxbox website for $119.99 + $20 shipping, or on Aliexpress for the same price but with slightly cheaper shipping (at least to Thailand). You may be better off going with Mygica A11 instead which has similar specs (it could even be the same hardware…) and is sold for ~$65, especially if you already have a 2.4GHz gyro remote control. I’m not sure about ATSC Tuner support in the Mygica firmware however.
But if you want to get a change to get it for free, you should to go to XBMCHUB forums and enter one and more of the four contests:
- Show your XBMC setup on Facebook. Winner selected at random.
- Tweet your XBMC setup to @XBMCHUBCOM with #freetvcontest tag. Winner selected at random.
- Most valuable member. The winner will be the member who begins to show the most improvement in participation on the forums during the contest period. Criteria include number of new posts, post quality percentage, and follow up on technical support, so don’t expect to be spamming your way to a free device.
- Forum signature on other forums. If you’re an active member of other forums, you can put a link to XBMC in your signature, and the winner will be decided based on the amount of referrals among other things (not very clear to me).
You can participate in all four contests if you wish. One Jynxbox Android HD will be given per contest, and you have until January 31st, 2013 at Midnight New York Time to enter. Good Luck!

This is very misleading post,
I don’t believe any of xbmchub.com users are from Team XBMC, I believe this members only developing python addons (to sites that violate copyrights).
The Jynxbox Android device isn’t officially supported by Team XBMC only the Pivos Xios DS,
xbmchub.com isn’t the official XBMC forum.
You might want to edit the your post to make it clear that this got nothing to do with Team XBMC.
It still nice initiative by xbmchub.com members.
Oups very sorry, I got confused myself as I learnt this on XBMCANDROID twitter handle. I’ve updated the post to reflect it’s a XBMCHUB initiative.
Finally, make that 6 free Jynxbox Android HD media players, as xbmcandroid.com (same moderator) also announced a contest to win two more: http://www.xbmcandroid.com/forums/promotions/286.htm
Niether XBMCHUB or XBMCANDROID websites, or their Facebook and Twitter account are official from XBMC.
myfoolishgam is correct that XBMCHUB (XBMCANDROID) is only for illegal or semi-illegal addons.
They are actually even violating copyright by just using “XBMC” in the name or their websites 😛
