      1. At least because it fucks all your network between the source and the destination with flow-control slowing all the traffic down.

          1. No, to all the chain of switches between the first and the last one since buffers remain full while waiting for flow the control timer to expire. Usually it’s the “backbone”, especially in a home where it’s common to chain switches between rooms or stairs.

          2. afair i understand switches (unless they are braindead), they dont send the same data to all ports. so if you use the device with tv streams, it only gets what’s destined to it and you dont get full buffers anywhere

        1. That’s the HDMI 2.1 port form the SoC that allows that refresh rate. I’m not sure if there are any practical application however.

          1. Thanks, but I was referring to the 10/100Mbit LAN and the 4K @ 75 Hz. Makes no sense in my opinion.

  1. I dont speak spanish at all, but how/why did you manage to translate “10/100” to “gigabit”?

  2. Can such a box play Netlifx via Google Cast (Chromecast protocol) without Netflix certification? I guess not.

  3. Having had a Mecool which I bought recently I really wouldn’t recommend this company. That TV box is really crap and almost nothing works properly. They chose very cheap components and especially a very cheap Wi-fi chip and such.
