  • Thanks for this appendizitis. This box looks really cute ;-) have to order one, just to have it. Is there a built in IR Receiver or do i need an external Receiver with jack cable?

  • Thanks for the reply. Unfortunatelly the links don't work

  • Got it working now. But when de device reboots the screen goes black and it doesn’t boot. I installed it the to sd card

  • Is your box a 1GB or 2GB? Sounds like you used the wrong device tree.
