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.

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.

It's okay if you're technically inclined as it's not a straight open the box and enjoy. It's also not worth the cost at $110. I do like that it's small, but it's slow when trying to stream off the net. The wifi is problematic, would suggest to hard wire to ethernet.

The box I ordered came with a dated version of XBMC on it, so I flashed the android rom. The android rom is very slow and trying to use XBMC with android on this box is frustrating! I went on the pivos forum and downloaded the hydra xbmc 13.2 which runs pretty good.

I just want to clarify - if you're using XBMC to stream through add-ons it's slow to load, but video does play smooth with no lags. I played 15 GB HD MKV movies with no issues off a hard drive. So if your primary use for the box is to play movies off a hard-drive, then the box is good.

I also have an OUYA with xbmc and the performance is much better with the ouya hands down. You can really tell the difference going from ouya to the pivos. It seems like I'm always waiting with the pivos.

Also for the price, no on board storage, you'll need a micro sd card.. which is ridiculous.

final thoughts - too expensive for what you get! I wouldn't pay more than $50 this (I bought one for $46 from amazon warehouse deals). if you're looking for an XBMC box the OUYA rocks, I hear Amazon Fire TV box is even better than the ouya for XBMC. Just my two cents,.

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????

Thought this would be a nice upgrade from my WD Live .... it's NOT! Buffering is so horrible that I can't bear to watch anything off Netflix. Tried both wired and wireless connections. Navigating with remote requires the patience of a Tibetan monk. Bearable with a USB keyboard. I've switched back to my WD Live media player. Would not recommend this device to anyone.
