Honestly MP104 does not look bad and it is definitely not cheap. It is not a media player, it is meant to be a TV box to smarten up a non-smart TV. 80 pounds means it is more expensive than a Mi Box S (at least in my country).

Are you using Samba? Is the HDD formatted as NTFS?

I think HiMedia should consider releasing a CoreElec/LibreElec device. I do know there is that Frankenstein device with dual boot, but as you pointed out I do not need Android on my TV box. I have had another Android powered TV box and that was also not performing as I had expected (no DRM, sometimes apps would not work). Again it is my personal opinion that Android has media limitations that a pure Linux machine does not (it is by design). I will purchase a 4K Android TV from Sony soon so I can do Netflix/HBO quickly, so I plan to have a pure TV box based on Linux.

Any custom Android build will have issues with DRM, unless it is coming from the producer itself. In order to have DRM L1 in Android one has to pay and there is a possibility that even if you do pay, some streaming apps will still not work at maximum resolution.

Minimal? It can do everything Android can, but better. I mean what can Android do that CoreElec cannot? Please don't mention Android games, because extremely few people play games on a TV player. All those people on KodiTV forum must be nuts recommending CoreElec instead of Android.

HiMedia would better get in the Android TV bandwagon. I think I saw some Android TVs with HiSilicon chipset, but their performance is not that good, it is lacking a good display and the chipset is on the lower end. I, for one would love to re-iterate that Android is not suitable for media playback as OpenElec/CoreElec/LibreElec are. I would almost jump the gun on a HiMedia TV box with any of the 3 open OS platforms. Linux-based firmware is a hell of a lot easier to maintain than Android and it has less costs, not to mention that it runs natively and not through a VM like Android does.

I would urge @futeko to tell them this point of view, to go with Linux-based firmware rather than with Android, since a non-certified (from DRM/Widevine point of view) Android TV box loses its advantages over a Linux-based one.

When will android 8 come with q10pro?

There is no benefit in running Android 8. This has been asked before and answered as well before. We need a firmware with the least bugs, there are still some and I suspect there will not be a newer firmware anymore.

The price for such a device would be in the hundreds of dollars/euros (I honestly do not see why 1 Gbit is not enough for local content, since 1 Gbit is not yet surpassed by even the most demanding bitrates). I would love to have any of the other features that HS2005 has pointed out. I would love for it to have any form of CoreELEC, LibreELEC or OpenElec instead of Android with a strong WiFi chipset. I would pay 200 to 300 EURO tops for it. HiMedia could be able to cut on the cost by giving up Android.

@afss: right, I may be a fool watching 3D movies on my Q10 pro all these years. You can have options render subtitles in 3D, but this is only working with the wrapper/Himedia player only.

Hi, I can copy or delete files without using other programs?

What do you mean by other programs? You need a file manager on it for local operation and Samba enabled in the settings for using a PC to copy stuff on it.

Have you tried like on any Android device? Go to Display and look around there. There is an option to chose a wallpaper and the original one should be there on it.

Are you guys using a clean install? What have you installed CFW over original firmware? I had issues in the past, but starting with a certain version (2.0.6 I think) Samba transfer speed started to be normal again and the Samba optimization was not needed anymore. Test with a laptop connected to the same wired network. Transfer speed (wireless or wired) can be influenced by a lot of factors, a bad cable, a weak switch, even an over-worked router. I remember there was another user with slow transfer speeds and his issue was caused by his network or his cabling. Try backing up apps and installing CFW 2.1.1 from scratch. There should not be a speed limitation on original firmware or CFW as far as I know.

Having a matched screen and video source, no matter where it comes from, will matter. We first need good and stable 4K at 60 FPS, then we can dream about 120 FPS and 8K. One of the most popular cable providers in Romania launched its first 4K channel, for free at the moment. I saw it on a friend's 4K TV, it looks gorgeous (his infant daughter even said "that is a lot of food" when she saw a show on it). By pushing the boundaries we can get better video at 1080p and 4K video sources. I am sure not all TV stations are doing a proper 1080p and that some do upscaling (Eurosport, History and maybe some of the local TV stations in Romania).

120 FPS will matter, I can tell you there should be a significant observable difference if the TV can do 120 FPS. I know mine does (it is an old LG 3D TV from 2013). But the lack of a proper SDK will make or brake a device based on the new chipset.

Honestly, there is very little chance for Himedia to do anything more on the Q10/Q5 Pro. It is an old device now. It is bad that they did not provide a firmware that would make us not want updates. The front screen is one piece that is severely underused. I would love to see the other icons light up when doing something (a simple Pause-Play-Stop would be perfect).

I am seeing stuttering from time to time with some rips. They should all be done in the same manner, no DTS or Dolby sound in them, no fancy codecs. I think Kodi 18.1 is broken on audio, video is running fine, but audio gets garbled, as if buffering would be empty. I do not want to go back to Kodi 17, it is a royal pain in the behind to redo the setup, with addons, even though I know I have a backup done with the backup plugin.
