Hello all,

I am tempted to buy an MK802 or some other android miniPC for use with Ampdroid.

Are any users out there using one of these? If so, how is it going? Would you recommend it?

I have 2, mk802II running ics and works great, just got myself the newer MK802 IIIs yesterday running JB, and it installs fine, but as soon as I try and stream anything (either live tv or movie etc...) it immediately closes. going to do some tinkering around afterwards to try and get going. When it is working, works very nice (shows as tablet style).

Thanks for the confirmation - looking to get one of these. It's just that there is so many Chinese copies of these, so just wanted to understand whether try work ok with ampdroid.

Can you comment on the wifi performance of the device ? Have heard about issues with weak wifi performance, are you using a USB to ethernet cable?

If the files are accessible on your network, which I guess they must be if PowerDVD can play them then you should be able to find them in MP2. See here for further info.

Thanks for that. I found "Chnlineup" in the Sky grab and "FreesatEPG" in the Freesat grab and enabled them both in EPG Collector, and also set them as the EPG grabber for radio in MP2. But here's the odd thing: The next time I opened the XMLTV EPG mapper (where you map actual channels to channels available in the EPG), the radio...
