G-Box Midnight thread?

Postby jnm21 » Sat Oct 27, 2012 6:33 pm

I know it is similar to the Dyno, but I wonder if we should have a thread for this? I bought one off eBay today!

There seems to be a lot of interest in this box online - some sources:

No interest? If anyone finds this (perhaps looking to buy one) - it seems like a great device. I haven't had the chance to play with it too much, but it seems quick in most circumstances. WIFI is weak - works great with mobile (hotspot) beside it, doesn't pick up my home WIFI from a different room too well. XBMC looks fine (no visable stretch with it on 720p as it arrived) - the bar is there, but it has an app to hide it pre-installed (could have been the seller rather than the factory).

Hi all i have the GBox midnight v2.1 in UK i is very good but still getting beter there is a new firmware update 4 days ago and it auto hides the bottom bar when you go into XBMC, Sometimes a bit jittery but it is getting better TV Launcher from playstore is an asset (made for TV box)also allready root , I have ordered a wifi N dongle to see if this smooths things out a bit more the funny thing is the wifi is faster than the ethernet.

Good to meet a fellow owner - I need to work out which version I have - no sticker makes me fear the worst!

I also have one of these. I've only had it a month or so, and it worked well over ethernet, but not great. I've had lots of crashes from XBMC, and slowness. I've moved to a new apartment where I can't use ethernet, and it's become a paperweight due to wifi being so horrible. I'm also considering just buying a wifi dongle to see if that helps.

One of the brilliant people that's got one of these boxes (GBox) has been rejigging firmware and XBMC has just put the download link on site it is brilliant i have not had any issues as yet the only thing it boots to XBMC only http://androidtvbox.us/topic/xbmc-bareb ... ltra-fast/
