i only know cloudtv, netflix and huluplus. chinese ones, think there r a few too. i have not used any of them.

off and on, u'll read some seller posting them for sale, some offer free trials. u'll have to lcoate the threads/posts, pm them.

or maybe start a new thread, invite them to pm you!

do check thoroughly... my view on this new exploding world of iptv via all kinds of boxes is that technology is changing very fast, many things get obsolete within a couple of years. so, reliable support and updates for hardware-firmwares-apps is critical. if not u spend the money only to find it gathering dust very quickly...

So anyone successfully install XBMC on Q5ii yet?
*

current model is q5ii emmc. latest firmware is 1.0.6 emmc eng.
that firmware comes with xbmc 12.2 and a customised advancedsettings.xml.
this way, it works good up to 720 dts5.1, most 1080 will jerk/lag, unwatchable.
xbmc 12.2 is not as good as 12.3, so i applied that xml to 12.3 - same result.
applied the same xml to q5ii non-emmc xbmc 12.3, same result.
conclusion - this machine can play xbmc 12.3 up to 720, no problem.
1080 - tak pakai.

Himedia Q5II good?
*
good if yr watch both chinese and english video - live tv and video on demand.
tonnes of chinese stuff to watch - live tv, tv series. movies, hd, sd... not all work smoothly but good enough.
couldtv, netflix, huluplus work fine, no problem.
english stuff in xbmc already commented above.
so, if yr taste is chinese-english mixed, good.
if u only want certain english stuff in highest hd, go check out something else.

the machine can handle dtshdma, bdmv/iso/m2ts, flac, 3d files playback via usb - good.

I just got my Q3 II. So far Mediacenter can play all the files i have in from a shared drive via the network except multiple M2TS files within a BDMV folders. When you launch the BDMV the folder it will just play one file and stops. When you click on the Chapters, you can't see the other files in there. You can see the rest of the files from Playlist but it will play one and then stop. I find this very weird as it doesn't seem to play every M2TS file in the folder by itself or allow navigation between the play with FWD or RWD. Anyone facing the same issue? Is there something i'm missing or it's firmware issue. I'm using 1.05 firmware version.

i know exactly wat u r talking about...

the media player is probably too simple. can't go deeper into the folders embedded inside.

no difference if u use file manager. no difference with 1.0.6 firmware.

the only way to go about it is u cut all the m2ts files and paste onto the main folder. then when u play the main folder it will read properly, one by one.

i have seen same problem with another media player, but in that player, it offers a browse option to go deeper into the folders, bdmv->stream where it will play correctly.

Dear Sifus,

I have this is issue of some cracking sound after playing the movies for more than 20 minutes. In order to stop this annoying sound, I would have to press on the return button to go back to the main screen and then re-play it again, then sound will goes away. When I play the same movie in another media player, I do not have this problem. What is the setting that I need to ensure this kind of schedule cranking sound will disappear? Many thanks in advance.

thanks, it was good for me to read it as it is consistent with all that I encountered.

that forum captures the problem of himedia streaming xbmc 720-1080 content incl claimed frustrations and solutions. there was talk of rooting, advancedsettings.xml, a himedia customised xbmc 12.2 hiplayer.apk, non-emmc vs emmc model and firmware up to 1.0.4. unfortunately, there hasn't been any post on latest firmware.

there is now firmware 1.0.6, would be nice if there are new posts in that forum for us to learn something from.

after some tests, i reconfirm that the customised xbmc 12.2 will enable 1080 to run smoothly with dolby or dts on 1.0.6 but since this 12.2 shuts out a few good addons like kissanime and buzzy sports in mashup, i had reverted to 12.3 but with the customised 12.2 advancedsettings.xml that came with the 1.0.6 firmware - this worked well for 720 but not 1080. while 720 suffices for the most part in xbmc, it will be great if next firmware 1.0.7 will come with xbmc 12.3 or gotham that will handle 1080 smoothly.
