Giveaway Week – RipplTV Quad Core Android Media Player

Today, I’d like to give away RipplTV, an Android TV box based on M8 hardware with Amlogic S802, 2GB RAM, and 8GB eMMC, but putting XBMC front and center, as the popular media center is used as the default launcher in this media player.

When I tried RipplTV,  the device had a much better firmware than M8/TM8 from the same company (Shenzhen Tomato), although it was not always trouble free, as 3D gaming could be problematic (Riptide GP2), and I had to clear data for XBMC once to have it run correctly, but overall a pretty decent device. It probably never became very popular through due to the rather large difference in price with M8 TV box.

Rippl-TV_AccessoriesYou can get full specs and more pictures in the unboxing post. Please note that the 5V/2A power adapter is not included, since I cut the cable for some other purpose, so you’d need to find a 5V/2A (or greater) power supply with a 5.5/2.1mm power jack.

  1. This one looks SWEET! I like the 2GB of memory… I would be more than happy to take it off your hands, count me in!!

  2. Another day, another contest, thanks for this!
    The box isn’t the best looking one, but it must be good to play any HD files.

  3. Just leave a comment? I’m looking for something to replace my Raspberry Pi in the role of movie and TV series player. So xbmc/Kodi is a must, as well as hdmi and digital audio out. 

  4. This may be an interesting replacement for my Raspberry PI! Count me in. 🙂

  5. Hello!
    How are you today?
    Well, here I am again testing my luck 🙂
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Yep! Was about to build a kodi pi. Stumbled upon this so I’ll gladly take it!

  7. Another great piece of kit. 2Gb RAm should be widespread if considering to explore more of the Android ecosystem besides only using it for XBMC/KODI

  8. This is a cool device. Would like to try to port the Amahi home server on it (

  9. Beautifully designed box!

    The manufacturer has invested more effort or idea (?)!


  10. In, looking forward to some device just like this. I don’t need an overkill, but esoecially now that I own an android phone and has sold the old device.

  11. I have an EM6Q-MXQ from Eny but the firmware is buggy so a good working box would be sweet.

  12. Yes I would like to win this one,so I have entered the giveaway
