Google have release new  YouTube for Android TV  2.00.17 for ARM soc, now video start at 1440/2160P.

YouTube for Android TV v2.0 review

For display  "nerd statistics" :

1. Start the video
2. Switch OFF the mouse. (That's why I could not get it working!)
3. Press the central OK button
4. Use the 'left arrow' key to select 'more options', press OK
5. The 'stats for nerds' icon is on the last on the right, press OK

About  Search function  and crash

Disable  access to microphone, so it will not crash.

Or you can install Google Now from Play Store to fix it, HiMedia FW :
  • 1.0.3-2.0.3 install Google Search, CFW 1.0.3-2.0.3 already installed.
  • Don't install Google Search on HiMedia FW/CFW 2.0.4., Disable  access to microphone

Archos is very simple,leanback and good media center, it's not kodi level obvious, but it can be a good  alternative.

Dolby True HD OK
Dolby Atmos OK
