Have Your Say with this Android TV Box Survey (and Potentially Win One)

While you probably know what you want in an Android TV box, it’s quite difficult to find out what the market wants exactly, so I’ve been asked to run a short survey about Android TV boxes, the importance of Android apps like Kodi, Plex, or Netflix, brands, and support.

TV_Box_SurveyIt will run for about 7 days, the results will be public, so I’ll post them once they become available. The survey is short – 5 questions -,  and anonymous, except if you want to participate in the lucky draw to win one Android TV box, as you have to leave an email address.

It lets you respond more than once – that’s gonna mess up the prize draw right? Pretty sure there’s bots and stuff to submit it multiple times therefore gaining more entries to the prize draw?

“it’s quite difficult to find out what the market wants exactly,” this being the oxymoron in that we want more things in a generic arm cortex tvbox and related kit, that we dont seem to be getting to date from the chinese vendors and OEM’s… for instance, a tv box with generic 1Gb/s ethernet interfaces, none of this antiquated 10/100 Kbits/s Soc… not even for IOF today. required as a generic option, at least one cortex SOC that has genuine Sata ports and fully tested with the existing external SATA 1 To 5 Port converter Adapter | SATA Multiplier Port… Read more »

Or, since we don’t know who is behind, it could be just a scam to get a big email database of potential future costumers…….

@xcore Forget about those ultra cheap crappy JMB321 based SATA port multipliers without active cooling, they start to corrupt data after a few minutes of high usage due to overheating even when used with slow SATA implementations like on Allwinner’s A20. I tested one such thing a while ago and since I used mainline kernel + btrfs I was able to detect even small data corruptions (btrfs provides ‘end to end data integrity’ through checksums). The average user of these port multipliers uses ext4 or other inappropriate filesystems for such unreliable hardware and will realize way too late that data… Read more »

not 100% but the survey after asking what I would like to see, ie Netflix etc once it gathered my email address, then an attempt was made to dictionary attacked my password. Hmmm coincidence ?

NetFlix emailed me for a password change I didn’t ask for, shows a connection I don’t know about at a time I wasn’t using Netflix. As I said it maybe mere coincidence. Nothing since….so all good.

What these boxes need is good support of software and forward update of Android. 2 to 4 independent USB, fast as possible. To be able to boot from a USB pen drive which is ment for fast random in and out, as micro and standard SD/TF cards are really designed for video and photography. Include Orange Pi, Raspberry Pi compatible GPIO. ( You can always use a Chinese Arduino clone via USB ) Good remote and game controller support. Sell for £36 Include a Basic language. Aim it at families, kids, educational, smart TV , light office work ( must… Read more »

The problem with asking the audience here is we aren’t typical users and we all want different things. The questions on the survey aren’t that relevant for what I want. For TV I’ve moved to client server model, so having integrated hardware to support DVB-T2/S2/SAT-IP recording server isn’t important to me. Local storage for recordings and media is irrelevant, although with the latest Android TV based on Marshmallow using SDCard as internal storage provides easy expansion For a real Android TV box I want: 1) A TV Box, not a jack of all trades Android box that plugs into a… Read more »

@Nelbert Many truths there but as a aside since I got my MiniM8s s905 my Roku 2, Nvidia Tegra 7″ tablet And Mediatek 8 core tablet are hardly being used for TV viewing and Kodi. Only real problem is buggy channel 5 app and service here in UK ( even gives errors on my Roku 2 ). I use to cast to TV from Android tablets or my Windows AMD Laptop via HDMI out, now the MiniM8s is quieter, uses less power. I control it by a USB mouse ( much better than remote ) and unlike my Tablets I… Read more »
