Hi, can you tell me whether it passes 5.1 audio either over its hdmi output or spdif? I want one to replace my WDTV Live but if it won't do this then there is no point.

Thanks
Jez

I placed Minix X5 - ordered to GEEKBUYING.COM, After 07days, they still processing, requested many things by email. No tracking number....

GEEKBUYING.COM IS SCAMS SELLER.

Pls. be careful!

I got my X5 few days ago and made a quick test with USB Webcam/Skype.
The mic is working, but Webcam is not (Probably my webcam is very very old one - Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 V-UJ16)

Did you get it from GeekBuying? If so, what shipping did you select?

Ok tanks. You need UVC webcam i think.
It's better to plug in a powered USB hub.

I guess so. but I dont use skype that much,just make a quick test.
I think it's fine for X5, since it comes with 5V/3A power supply. Will try to borrow an UVC to make another test then.

@jerrylee
I intend to buy Minix X5 from Taobao. How about quality of your X5 bought from Taobao?
Did you buy it from this seller/link? http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=2066 ... 1130056582
Did you buy directly or shipping?

Thanks!

Very smooth, but cannot change default location which is PRC, Google Play says some apps are incompatile and doesn't allow to install, even install apk, apps don't work. Seems a known problem for tablet ROM.

:shock: it's a big issue :(
Is the same thing with geo 4 ( not full market)

But here we can read http://www.squidoo.com/minix-neo-g4-review

"The Neo G4 comes with the full Google Android Play Store instead of the restricted store that some other IPTV devices come with." Why not on X5 ??

Wow, that location thing sounds really annoying. Can anyone else confirm? What are example of apps that Google Play doesn't allow to install or apk doesn't work?

I hear you. My order from them since mid October haven't even exited China yet. And geekbuying's chat support is either not picking up or hanging up immediately.
They have a really bad support and I am not ordering from them again. I just ordered a g4 from dx.com. My colleague seem to have a better experience from aliexpress than geekbuying.

yes it bothers me too. i would be happy to at least install the apk files with no problems (if it's hulu/netflix i don't care but other apps may be A BIG PROBLEM FOR ME)

Can you post a review. I am ready to purchase this product but I want to make sure everything is working good. Wondering about Ethernet speed and video resolution. Is the signal a true 1080p or upscaled from 720p? Are there any overheating issues and does the unit have heat sinks? Thanks.
