The Little Black Box - is it any good - znelbok - 10-02-2013

I found about this device when searching for a remote.

Has anyone got any first hand experience with this unit yet. They say it will run OE. I like the remote and its a nice small box that will install behind the TV's I want to use it with, but it has to work OK first of course.

You should probably head over to the forums on The Little Black Box site to ask these questions.

Given it's ARM hardware and it already has it's own distribution that runs XBMC I highly doubt there will be an OpenELEC build for it.

I am sure I read a hot-to for installing OE on this box, hence the request here.

I thought it was an arm unit as well, but when I read the how0to I was confused and went looking for more info. I cant find the page I was looking at now, but if I do i will post it here.

I am the co-founder of the company and one of active developers. We are seriously looking into finalizing a certain person his work to have OE running on this device (and other Amlogic devices for that matter)

Income is used to pay development and support. So even if neither of the developers on board can get it done, money can Wink

Can you provide a little info on the hardware specs? This info seems a little difficult to find and I've not found an official spec list on your site.

The European might be the easiest to read and find;

Why did you choose a box that cant do 23,976 ? Must have been other options to work with ?

We have chosen this hardware to work further / with Pivos on the Amlogic Meson hardware. At that specific moment the amlogic was the best supported ARM device software / sourcecode wise.

Our missing is to bring XBMC to the masses. People that don't know of XBMC yet. For that reason we would consider ourself the "step in" model. No fancy sound and video stuff. We have that reserved for The Big Black Box Wink
