Oh man, I am enjoying this Android Battle!

Hopefully something good will come out of it in a few months time. A stable, powerful Android XBMC receiver that works perfectly out of the box. I will pay up to $300 for one of those.

I think if we start by helping them understand it could create something more - because from her responses she clearly doesn't understand what the general public license consist of. The company Visson is in violation with (gnu)Amlogic's new legality standpoint on the open source structure in their product - the kernel source should be out there to the public and if not I don't think they should be able to tag XBMC, Amlogic, or anything else "open" they are using within this device. With her answers it makes like Visson wants to take from the community and not give back......this is stealing Shirley - do you understand now? If you want to know more about XBMC you have to know the skeleton that is keeping it active and growing - the community, if you close them out I am sure it will be a negative for your company. I have read nothing but negativity for this device - so much written poorly about it without a true review so far tells you what the users want and willing to pay for these days. This is a result of you digging a ditch for your company with a "kill yourself attitude" - people want a device that is theirs upon purchase - not proprietary until your sales slow down and then you want to "help" the community. We have seen it all here within the XBMC community and so many companies sporting XBMC without SUPPORTING the purpose. If you want to start getting to know the XBMC community better, be obliged to supporting the cause and show your gratitude beyond what others have done in the past.

Consulted with Amlogic this day.
no duty to offer source code but have right to reserve it.
as MX is new to TV Box, engineer said will offer to u all later when time is ok.

So basically stall until your sales fall? Loving the tactics :p

and the excuse:
you're new to this so you're going to refuse giving your customers something they clearly have the right to demand?

What kind of company are you guys running?!

"no duty to offer source code", perhaps you need to review what it means to use GPLv2 licensed source code. OpenSource does not mean you can do what you want. There are restrictions that are spelled out in GPLv2 licensing. If you do not choose to abide by the terms, then you are not allowed to use it.

Precisely. This is very straightforward.

You can certainly use it, just not distribute it!

What would be possible to play in this hw with xbmc now? Any chance of getting that hw decoding to work on 1080p? Any possibility to run Linux with xbmc on it?
