    Hi
    I recently bought a Vensmile W10 MINI PC 2GB RAM+32GB Windows 8.1 OS Intel TV BOX Quad Core 1.33Ghz CPU mini computer Intel HD Graphic GPU bluetooth. Processor Main Frequency 1.33Ghz Quad CoreMemory Capacity 2GB.
    I was hoping to use this mini pc as a TV client to my dedicated Mediaportal TV server. I am only getting very hacking video and very hacking audio. Also loosing nettwork connection :)
    I was wondering if anybody has tried this mini PC and have thoughts of how to configure to watch live TV.

    yes, but cannot find any confirmation that they work as MP1.11 ( TV client), I have a dedicated TVserver. The wiki says that I need double 2 GHz CPU, but my new micro PC has a quad. 1.3 GHz CPU and only wireless card. Should this be good enough to watch live TV channels? I have tried but it is stuttering and then locks up (RTSP does not work at all but UNC is showing some video/audio)

    Hi
    Everything is working now. I am running MediaPortal 1 ver. 11 client using UNC paths. The main problem was the 2.4GHz wireless. I changed to 5Ghz (lucky that my router has both). Wondering if I should use MP2 slim TV (can this be changed from RTSP to UNC?), suggestions?

    Also working with HD channels, but changing channels takes 5-15 (depending on same transponder or not) seconds
