2.0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest for XBMC May 22 2014
By arkay
Verified Purchase
first of all, I have to say that XBMC is an awesome program. Everybody should know how to use it, sadly this device is too slow/weak for the average consummer. If you use an xbox or ps3 or wtv and have used netflix, you know how quick and easy it is to use and switch from one video to another. Well due to the "lack of power" of this device, it will lag and lag for a long time sometimes. If you do want to experience XBMC I suggest you take an relatively old (2006 or newer pc) and plug it to your tv and use the program that way. trust me it will be much faster.

pros:

small
not noisy
easy to setup
pleasing to look at
not too expensive
XBMC compatible

cons:

crappy remote
laggy
feels "plasticky"
does not start up as XBMC, starts as an android device

2.0 out of 5 stars Take a pass... Look at other XBMC options July 10 2014
By ToddB
Complex to load XBMC and initially works well but over the last 4 months I've seen this device slow down and encounter problems. I have my unit plugged into my router via Ethernet yet there still buffering problems and challenges even loading some of the different programs. The remote is clunky, mine arrived with a dead battery. Also, the remote is an infrared (IR) so you'll need line of site and close proximity to the base unit. For the price the Pivos is really a disappointment. I think I'll look to get the similarly priced OUYA next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars I bought another one for my other TV Aug. 2 2013
Verified Purchase
I love this device...

I did not even power it up running android. First thing I did was install the linux firmware from the Pivos site. I use XBMC on my computers and tablet. I use XBMC backup to keep my plugins the same on all devices.

It plays movies stored on my server with no issues, streaming off the net, music, etc.

The main thing I would like added is buffering video to the micro SD card, would help when streaming HD contact. You can set the micro SD to store some data to free more internal storage but not to buffer at this time.

The device is not quite open box, plug and play. Have a computer savvy person help with the setup, preferably someone who uses XBMC themselves.

I would recomend this device to most people.

the first one I ordered the reset button was broken, the replacement one wouldn't turn on. I bought this as a father's day present and so far it has been a crappy gift. I personally have on and I love it, but I didn't have to deal with the installation. why does it have to be so hard to get it started????

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of disappointments - but it works June 8 2014
Verified Purchase
After setting up an ATV1, I was looking for a device that would give me more out of the box experience for which I had to work for weeks on my ATV1. After some research and references to xbox, I decided to buy this box. I must say there were series of disappointments, almost to the point where I was prepared to send it back (I didn't). First, despite repeated references to xbmc, and boasting that this was the "design platform for xbmc", it has NO xbmc. Ok, not too bad. You could just install it right? Wrong. There is not enough storage on the box to install anything more. So you need an sd card. Not expecting this new requirement, I had to pull one from my phone so I can keep going. I had to attach a keyboard and a mouse before I could install XBMC and my favorite add-ons. Next disappointment: It boots in Android. Why? Is my TV a tablet or a smart phone? Did you supply a keyboard/mouse necessary to operate an OS? No? Then why Android??? Its advertized as a "Smart TV" Media player. Sounds pretty dumb to me.
Yes, I know there is a native Linux firmware which I used to re-flash the box (using my sd card). Only to find out that none of my favorite (or essential) XBMC add-ons work (1channel, mashup ...). Eventually re-flashed to the Android again and re-configured/re-installed XBMC. I will for now download some android app to autostart xbmc.
Final announce, the remote. Nice and cute, but too hard to click and a sounds like crack-opening nut. (It does work without any effort though).
So after all this, why 3 starts? Well, the good point was, after all this frustration, when things finally got configured properly, it does show videos flawlessly. The hardware seems to be pretty powerful to show jitter free vidio/audio playback with no hang/freeze or pauses.
