Well guys I've been using dreambox for long... and vu+ more recently... I was using xbmc few times in my pc by curiosity, but after saw this openelec + kodi + tvheadend running like charm at cost of a dinner... and more powerfull that any 400 eur enigma cpu box with half power of wetek that a single 1080p cannot play...

Per 100 eur I get a box that plays almost all movies. Natively Linux kodi and best dvb player... what more to ask...

Does anyone who owns this player shed some light on the playback of Android apps such as Netflix. Hulu, Amazon etc. How does it compare to ftv or Roku?

Can you use those apps without the mouse and keyboard by just using the remote? I hate to have to use fly mouse. Never enjoy it.

On WeTekForums user reported Netflix HD is working ok. WeTek RCU have Air Mouse mode, which can be turned on by pressing mouse On/off button. Of course You can move by buttons located around OK button.

Anyway Google Widevine DRM support is enabled in WeTek Play firmware, so any app (e.g HBO Go) which rely on it will work without issue.

What benefit would the Asus Chromebox be over the WeTek Play? (Using OpenELEC) I'm just going to be playing 1080p (at most) video direct through a television, so not really in the need of any of the streaming options (Netflix, etc)

Although the Chromebox is almost twice the price (That I can find it in Euros) would I get anything much more from it? (I'm guessing the UI speed on the WeTek isn't exactly a slouch?) Or would it be best to get the Asus, just to be "on the safe side", as it can do everything and more than I'd ever need? If not, I'm still aiming for the WeTek, by the looks of it.

Now all this WeTek box needs is just that someone ports Tvheadend server software to Android so it don't have to run Linux to get Live TV and PVR inside Kodi's GUI.

https://tvheadend.org

Reason for this is it would be extremely nice to have both Kodi and Tvheadend server running simultaneously as Android apps on the same Android box under Android OS.

I want to run Android such as Netflix and games, and IMHO it is a pain to have to use external servers or devices just to get Live TV and PVR inside Kodi on Android.

Goal being to have the DVB TV tuner server backend part running on same Android box as XBMC.

Working with for example with Geniatech PT115 USB DVB or Geniatech ATV1220 Android box
http://www.geniatech.com/pa/pt115m.asp
http://www.geniatech.com/pa/atv1220.asp

This linked thread on Tvheadend's own forum mention that someone did an Android port about a year ago but it was then never put up as a patch upstream to mainline Tvheadend? And quote below from last post in that thread does have a link to that Android port of Tvheadend with source code on GitHub

https://tvheadend.org/boards/5/topics/7311?r=7346
Quote:I too would like tvheadend to run un such box, but it seems hard. I have found a guy called Mikrohard that has made a port that he says should work with XBMC, I have however not got it to work

Here's his forks and sources:

https://github.com/innbox/tvheadend/tree...nd-android

And his service script that should be run within XBMC:

https://github.com/innbox/service.multimedia.tvheadend

The original posts comes from the xda forums:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthre...?t=2171412

I have no good knowleadge of linux/android/cross-compiling but I do think some guys around this forum might find this useful.
Edit: I posted the same question to Tvheadend forum https://tvheadend.org/boards/5/topics/10286 and feature request here https://tvheadend.org/issues/1921

One of the Tvheadend devs is on the list of people to receive a box, however I'm not sure if that's to ensure good interaction with the Amlogic version of Openelec or whether there is a possibility of a Android port of Tvheadend.

An possible alternative to get Live TV and PVR working inside Kodi on Android with the integrated TV-tuners could be to make a new PVR client addon for the MuMuDVB PVR backend as its upstream software supports running natively on Android and Linux, both on ARM and x86 embedded systems.

http://www.mumudvb.net (GPLv2 licensed cross-platform C source code on GitHub: https://github.com/braice/MuMuDVB )
Quote:MuMuDVB (Multi Multicast DVB) by Brice Dubost is an open source application made for redistributing DVB television streams over a network.

MuMuDVB also features IPTV and multicast support, and is designed for embedded platform and have a very low memory and CPU footprint.
What is most unique about it compared to the similar Tvheadend is that upstream MuMuDVB supports running natively on Android and Linux, both on ARM and x86 embedded systems.

This would mean that with MuMuDVB and XBMC you could use your Android media player as a stand-alone set-top box without using a separate external PVR backend TV server.
Again, I think the best thing about having a PVR backend running natively on Android and a matching PVR client addon for Kodi would be to have both the DVB TV tuner server part that is the PVR backend TV tuner server application running on the very same Android box as the frontend Kodi media player app.

You actually don't need a very powerful backend box to run the TvHeadend server. Its requires low resources when running on Linux.

As an example I have a TvHeadend server on a 8 year old 1Ghz ATV1 running Ubuntu serving 3 Kodi clients in the house. It uses approx 4% CPU resources.
Just feed the HTSP stream into Kodi running on Android and your good to go.

However, deinterlacing will likely be an issue under Android, possibly mpeg2 too unless Wetek have that to sorted out ?

From what I understand...

1. Wetek are porting tvheadend to Android

2. Interlacing remains a problem but is being actively worked (latest update ... well, yesterday)

More discussion on the tvheadend IRC channel for anyone who's interested - mostly European timezone - #hts on Freenode.

Yep - I've run TV Headend on Pogoplugs in the past.

That does sound promising, does anyone have any more information or facts about that development work?

Maybe a WeTek or Tvheadend representative can comment?

Is the development work being developed in the public on GitHub or other source code repository?

I know, and yes most of us here know already that we could just a Tvheadend server on a low-end Linux system like example a Raspberry Pi as long as it is the same network at home, BUT still I thought I was clear that is not what I'm asking for here.

Instead I am really trying to clearly ask for a full native port of TvHeadend server to Android so that it will run on the simultaneously on the one box at the same time, with it running Android as its only OS.

The reason for this request is to meet the market of people that would like to become "cable-cutters" by just simply buying one single Android box, and for them I would like to be able to recommend Kodi and a Android box like WeTek but today can't since you can not access the Live TV and PVR parts in Kodi on Android, at least not unless you run a TvHeadend server on a other Linux box on the network which defeats the point of being able to recommend a single box.

This concept are for people who don't want to have multiple boxes running, nor have the skill or interest in maintaining an ecosystem of devices. They just want one inexpensive box, and for that one box to run Android so that they can use Android apps without having to dual-boot.

Again if needed: please see this other threads here for a deeper clarification and links http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=182218
