Pick the Right Kodi Box (UPDATED FEB 2015)
(2015-07-02, 20:01)Wigguslong Wrote: I am hoping that one of you experts can please recommend a TV box with Kodi with my criteria below.

My criteria:
Must run Android.
TV usage only.
Must have a web browser.
Must have a good Android app to control Kodi and also to control other Android apps.
Good WiFi.
Easy to set up.
Good spec.

Thank you.

For the requirements listed...
Easy to setup (plug and play virtually) with the most mature Android Firmware + an external WIFI antenna for good WIFI reception.

Grab a MINIX Neo X6

You will also get 23.976/59.94Hz properly synced video output plus HEVC (H265) codec decoding.
Deinterlacing video when viewing Broadcast TV with the AMlogic S805 in the MINIX is very good.

You can get cheaper AMlogic Sxx boxes, but they will not have mature Firmware, weak WIFI and not be very well supported after purchase. You basically get what you pay for in the AMlogic / Android marketplace.
MINIX are a Kodi forum Sponsor, and they sell quality gear that works well.

Cross reference this chart with the MINIX NEO series of devices as well: (do not get the NEO Z64)

http://www.cnx-software.com/2014/04/25/a...-and-s812/

I have a AMlogic S805 with sorted out 23.976/59.94Hz video output Firmware and it runs Kodi Isengard on Android 4.4.2 well.

Have a read of this as well:
