They MUST comply to the license.

What if they don't?

Lawyers and so on. GPL license violation is not to be taken lightly.

hi,

anyone know if this site is legit selling the Q5 that is actually the correct English firmware version:
http://www.iandroidtvbox.com/himedia-q5-quad-core-android-tv-box-2gb-4k-video-8gb-emmc-android-4-4.html

Also, is the Android OS version upgradable on Q5 to Android 5?

VidOn is still at it. No longer a Kodi sponsor. But, Minix (sponsor) has been leveraging "VidOn XBMC" for their X8-H Plus.

I got the Chinese version box from box (but, was several months ago). They refused return.

- Hisilicon 3798M chip (apparently a 'budget' version of 3798C found in Himedia Q5/Q10)
- Kodi 15 (doesn't specify how 3D is implemented via Kodi, but guessing same as what HiMedia has done)
- 3D BD-ISO
- HD audio passthrough
- Framerate sync (assuming 23.976 is supported, unsure)
- $90

Edit: The 3798M chip is same as in HiMedia's budget 3D player M3 4K.
Yeah I read the email from them this morning. Since their last Android box didnt really live up to the hype I doubt this one will as well...

It will likely be the same as HiMedia M3, Slightly different UI and different casing/remote, that's all. And, as HiMedia and HiSilicon are part of the same company I believe, you're better off with HiMedia than Cloud Media.

Finally hd audio + 3d mvc + kodi gui during play, no external player

How come these guys can make it work inside kodi without external player and others dont?
Because they are copyright pirates, taking kodi source, developing it and distributing without making the source available. To support them by buying their product supports piracy and is a kick in the teeth to kodi developers and the whole community.

When Kodi Jarvis get release and it takes them a month to release their version, i think would be fine with me.

As an Android Phone user, i know how updates works?Blush
No it is not fine. It is never fine to breach gpl, let alone profit from it. Why the he'll do you think we have a thriving community to begin with? Gpl, that's why.
