I have a fire stick which was a no-brainer since I have Amazon prime.

But she who must be obeyed uses a fire stick.

I of course use it also but if I had a dedicated android box for my TV that can run Kodi it would make my life much more simple. I don't need an Nvidia shield since I don't game much anymore after spending 15 years of my life in Everquest and EverQuest 2.

I'm a Kodi Noob. I got a firestick and installed Kodi and then put various add-ons on it. I can't believe what I've been missing all this time. I've come late to the party obviously!!

One thing I'm realising though is that the firestick has its limitations. I long for an android box to see Kodi's full potential. Unfortunately my wife is not so keen as we have a baby on the way and we can't afford one. I've tried to convince her that it will benefit her but she is not having it!!

Please help me.

My Ouya finally kicked the bucket.  I'm excited to move onto an Android TV and away from the mess that was Ouya.  The Mi Box sounds absolutely fantastic.

Ouya, oh, Ouya, how I loved to hate you.  I'm movin' on.

Thanks for the opportunity to win this Mi Box, guys!

Im a grandma gamer and it would really help me to get my main computer in the other room so I could use this new device to watch TV.  Being on a fixed income my only source is Kodi for TV.  I guess you figured that I use the Beast to watch it.  This would free up my computer and put me in touch with my granddaughter, son, niece and grand niece's to be back playing again.  

I'd love it, I'd just have to learn to use it..LOL  I am computer savvy to a point.  Better with hardware then software.

      Beware of Android TV Box Sellers Preloading
      Devices with Kodi Addons
       
      We probably should have reported on this sooner, but recently this issue became a bit more serious. It has been reported that criminal gangs are now in the business of selling preloaded Kodi boxes, and this is bringing legal trouble to the whole Kodi ecosystem. There’s a lot of misinformation that’s been spread throughout the Kodi community, mainly by those by seek to profit from our hard work. We all need to act responsibly in order to ensure the continued existence of our community.
      We‚Äôre going to start by defining the term ‚Äúbox seller‚ÄĚ in order to avoid confusion. The term ‚Äúbox seller‚ÄĚ refers to someone who is selling Android TV boxes preloaded with¬†Kodi¬†addons. These are the people you‚Äôll find with kiosks in your local shopping mall, at the flea market, on Craigslist, and even on eBay. We‚Äôre¬†not¬†referring to legitimate companies like NVIDIA, Xiaomi, Amazon or MINIX, who manufacture quality Android TV boxes, and do not ship with any preinstalled addons.
      As a consumer, you should be aware that most box sellers out there are not selling the best possible hardware for Kodi. They are selling the boxes that they buy for cheap from China, which they can make the most money off. These cheap Chinese boxes have very high defect rates, and are nowhere near future proof. There’s no reason to pay for low quality hardware, when you can get some of the best brand name Kodi hardware for under $100 anyway. The type of people attracted to selling these type of sketchy products generally aren’t the most honorable nor educated of individuals. We’ve taken notice to the fact that most box sellers out there outright lie to their customers about the reliability of the product, and provide nowhere near the quality of support promised, if there’s any support at all. We get dozens of emails per week asking us for refunds (when we never sold anything to anyone), some box sellers even claim to be associated to us.
      The first reason we have a problem with these people is because they are bringing the type of legal trouble that could potentially lead to the total downfall of the Kodi community. In terms of legality, there isn’t much trouble that can arise from sharing open source code that allows for the scraping of web content. It becomes a whole other story when you’re bundling it together as a free TV product and selling it as opposed to giving it  away for free. We have nothing to do with these people and since they do absolutely nothing positive for the Kodi community, they should feel ashamed for tarnishing the Kodi name.
      The second reason we have a problem with them is because we’re the ones spending thousands of hours writing and maintaining the addons, meanwhile they are taking what we give away for free and selling it for huge profits. We don’t do what we do so that some low life can go around selling it to people, if those people want to use Kodi or our addons, they should download it for free and install it for themselves, that way they’ll actually be able to maintain their Kodi device in the future. Right now, we end up with pissed off box seller customers coming to our forums and abusing our developers, since they feel they are owed the support they paid for.
      Lastly, there is the whole paid IPTV thing that box sellers are pushing. These services are plaguing our community, with new ones popping up and shutting down every month. They are trying to turn our community into something it is not, a marketplace. The only reason the Kodi community exists is because of sharing and open source collaboration, charging people money for illegitimate access to streams is not part of that equation. These paid IPTV services have caught the eye (rightfully so) of many broadcasters, with the Kodicommunity being collateral damage.
      The moral of the story is if you’re going to use Kodi or Kodi addons, please buy Kodi hardware only from legitimate retailers and not from criminals who are going to rip you off. Profiteers are causing us nothing but grief, contributing absolutely nothing to the community, and are bringing the type of trouble that could very well one day lead to the end of Kodi as we know it.

      Beware of Android TV Box Sellers Preloading
      Devices with Kodi Addons
       
      We probably should have reported on this sooner, but recently this issue became a bit more serious. It has been reported that criminal gangs are now in the business of selling preloaded Kodi boxes, and this is bringing legal trouble to the whole Kodi ecosystem. There’s a lot of misinformation that’s been spread throughout the Kodi community, mainly by those by seek to profit from our hard work. We all need to act responsibly in order to ensure the continued existence of our community.
      We‚Äôre going to start by defining the term ‚Äúbox seller‚ÄĚ in order to avoid confusion. The term ‚Äúbox seller‚ÄĚ refers to someone who is selling Android TV boxes preloaded with Kodi addons. These are the people you‚Äôll find with kiosks in your local shopping mall, at the flea market, on Craigslist, and even on eBay. We‚Äôre¬†not¬†referring to legitimate companies like NVIDIA, Xiaomi, Amazon or MINIX, who manufacture quality Android TV boxes, and do not ship with any preinstalled addons.
      As a consumer, you should be aware that most box sellers out there are not selling the best possible hardware for Kodi. They are selling the boxes that they buy for cheap from China, which they can make the most money off. These cheap Chinese boxes have very high defect rates, and are nowhere near future proof. There’s no reason to pay for low quality hardware, when you can get some of the best brand name Kodi hardware for under $100 anyway. The type of people attracted to selling these type of sketchy products generally aren’t the most honorable nor educated of individuals. We’ve taken notice to the fact that most box sellers out there outright lie to their customers about the reliability of the product, and provide nowhere near the quality of support promised, if there’s any support at all. We get dozens of emails per week asking us for refunds (when we never sold anything to anyone), some box sellers even claim to be associated to us.
      The first reason we have a problem with these people is because they are bringing the type of legal trouble that could potentially lead to the total downfall of the Kodi community. In terms of legality, there isn’t much trouble that can arise from sharing open source code that allows for the scraping of web content. It becomes a whole other story when you’re bundling it together as a free TV product and selling it as opposed to giving it  away for free. We have nothing to do with these people and since they do absolutely nothing positive for the Kodi community, they should feel ashamed for tarnishing the Kodi name.
      The second reason we have a problem with them is because we’re the ones spending thousands of hours writing and maintaining the addons, meanwhile they are taking what we give away for free and selling it for huge profits. We don’t do what we do so that some low life can go around selling it to people, if those people want to use Kodi or our addons, they should download it for free and install it for themselves, that way they’ll actually be able to maintain their Kodi device in the future. Right now, we end up with pissed off box seller customers coming to our forums and abusing our developers, since they feel they are owed the support they paid for.
      Lastly, there is the whole paid IPTV thing that box sellers are pushing. These services are plaguing our community, with new ones popping up and shutting down every month. They are trying to turn our community into something it is not, a marketplace. The only reason the Kodi community exists is because of sharing and open source collaboration, charging people money for illegitimate access to streams is not part of that equation. These paid IPTV services have caught the eye (rightfully so) of many broadcasters, with the Kodi community being collateral damage.
      The moral of the story is if you’re going to use Kodi or Kodi addons, please buy Kodi hardware only from legitimate retailers and not from criminals who are going to rip you off. Profiteers are causing us nothing but grief, contributing absolutely nothing to the community, and are bringing the type of trouble that could very well one day lead to the end of Kodi as we know it.
