i have been researching media players for a few weeks prior to purchasing and for the most part had decided on himedia q5. by chance, i discovered the newer q10 model while searching online, which led me to this forum as there is very little information or reviews available. priority is for network streaming and hdd playback for all video formats (typically downloaded and disc backups), bit torrent, and android/google play market. not particularly interested in streaming online content. audio would be fine, but i have other equipment for that.

appears to be very few options for purchasing in the US; either ebay or from chinese sellers online, both are apparently direct ship from china. cant seem to find q10 anywhere. any options to purchase online? any other user reviews or experiences for q5/q10?

I have the HiMedia Q5. The quality of the internet streaming depends on your connection speed, the provider as well as the content itself. The Q5 has built in custom apps for streaming over 200 live TV channels from China and also movies and TV shows from PPS, YouKu and other providers via the HiTV app.

The TV channels are in SD and some of the content from the HiTV app are available in HD. However, the download speed is inconsistent. On some days I can watch in HD 720p while on other days, I cannot even stream 240p. I have a 10 mbps connection and I connect the Q5 using wired LAN connection. Streaming HD content from YouTube though is not a problem. When I am streaming HD content, the quality is very good.

I have a full review of the HiMedia Q5 at http://www.squidoo.com/himedia-q5-android-...a-player-review

Has anyone tested the optical TOSLink or the Coaxial output? Does it work?

I have the Android Refee M6 Google TV Box and there is no output from the optical TOSLink and in the Android software settings there is no option to enable or disable the optical out.
I have an old 5.1 DTS amplifier to connect to and don't wish to upgrade to a new 7.1 amplifier with HDMI in.

will it lag when play hd movie, with mkv format? interested in Q5 model.
hws the pic and sound quality? does a9 cortex 1ghz enough to do the job? lag o nt when browsing ?
*
no problem for those hd format, even bdmv or bdiso file (currently in market most of other brand android box can not de).. the pic n sound quality almost same like realtek 1185 chipset player..

android tv box main function is for browsing internet, streaming movie n watch movie from hdd, a9 cortex 1ghz much enough ady... it wont be lagging when do browsing internet unless ur network speed is very slow..

Has anyone tested the optical TOSLink or the Coaxial output? Does it work?

I have the Android Refee M6 Google TV Box and there is no output from the optical TOSLink and in the Android software settings there is no option to enable or disable the optical out.
I have an old 5.1 DTS amplifier to connect to and don't wish to upgrade to a new 7.1 amplifier with HDMI in.
*
it sure no problem for optical or coaxial output de, local media playback function is much better than other android box de, also it support network shares via Samba and NFS, thats other model dnt have de....

in my case, u think using a android base media player or those realtek o other media player better.

use for :

1: mkv,avi,mp4 file playback, smooth on a 46inch
2: can support subtitle better
3, must have youtube app
4. durable brand and quality, don't easily KO after warrenty
5. good quality for pic n sound

Actually it is the GPU that is doing all the heavy lifting for the video decoding. When browsing, the performance is about the same as browsing on a dual core smartphone. Don't expect performance similar to a PC.

the hardware spec sure mk808 is better than q4, dual core 1.6ghz, 1gb ram, q4 only 1.0ghz, 512mb ram...

but u should knw tv box main purpose is for streaming live channel, movie n surf the Internet, that spec is quite enough ady (unless u buy this is for playing those 1g, 2g games)

for software n firmware support himedia is much better than MK808.. q4 support hicontrol, hishare, apple airplay...built-in hitv n ady got more than 200+ live channels (now DIY firmware can add more than 800+ live channels ady, details can check the himedia forum), for MK808 now u even cant find a website for support this player...

china taobao q5 highest record 1 day can sale around 12000+ units, q4 now every can be around 500 units... u can check MK808 is less than 50 set per day de... the quantity cant say 100% true but the huge difference must got reason de...

Hi.
I have bought the Q5 from your PJ Digital Mall store yesterday. After installing the PPS TV, I could not get the latest TVB drama serial as what your store have shown me. Kindly advise me what can I do to get the latest TVB serial movie. I prefer to watch it through PPS TV apps.

Yes Q5 is a great video player. Playing without problem on PPS, Youtube (Anymore more apps for streaming??) 1 good thing is lasttime i tried few media player cannot play the MKV with built in subtitle correctly. On Q5 it is displaying correctly as in PC especially anime.

Anyone tried using combo wireless keybord and mouse like Logitech? does it work?? O i need to use USB keyboard and mouse. Thinking of getting of to ease web browing and youtube.

How is the performance of the Q5II? I am currently having WDTV Live and Himedia 900A. Both player can play the highest bitrate mkv and also BDMV.

Will Q5II be able to play those very high bitrate mkv and BDMV without lag?

So far I try synology with dune, tested 20gig iso without issue on 100mbps. 100mbps can transfer up to 36gig per hour, if you have movie that need >36gig per hour you will need gigabit connection.

If you live in the USA is the HiMedia Q5 II a good Android TV box to purchase or should I look for another Android TV device (English UI) ...? The Himedia Q5 II is my first choice ....

I'm more interested in playback of my local media files via XBMC/Plex/MS Player, HTML5/Flash websites, apps like WatchESPN, CNN, Comcast/Xfinity, maybe a few other apps ... Also can you sideload apps to the Himedia Q5 II ...? Do you use the same rooting method for the Himedia Q5 for the Himedia Q5 II too ...? Thanks in advance for your help ...!

ccs,

i just got a q5ii yesterday at dig mall. not sure if u were one the guys there!

after a few hours of trial, my comments:

.. overall, pretty good machine for its price. if one is looking for both media playback and streaming, this one does the job for most purposes.

.. via usb, plays mkv, mp4, flac, bdmv/iso, m2ts, no problem; smooth, no lag, no trouble at all.
.. picture quality good enough but i'll say it is a touch inferior to the ac ryan media player.
.. audio - via coaxial, dts and dolby works good, no problem
.. navigation is easy enough, has never hanged on me yet; response time fast enough for both remote and mouse; only when some files are slow to load, need to wait for it.

.. the machine was preloaded with a few things incl cloudtv, browser and youtube.
.. the chinese channels work ok somewhat but some don't work - duuno need registration or password or wat...?
.. with 10mb speed, majority of the ones that work, work fine, no lag, but a few 720p ones did jerk a bit.
.. cloudtv free trial - lots of chinese stuff, a lot more stable and easier to use that other addons but after trial, the free channels are very limited.
.. xbmc was partially installed at yr shop. xbmc can be a pain but after a while, u learn to navigate w/o getting lost!


like to get yr advice and tips on the following:

1.. if i have a 3rd party addon like cloudtv or xbmc (i did not see how it was done!), how do i install it?

2.. any suggested link(s) to some of the latest and good addons to get?

3.. the q5ii i bot yesterday, does it need any firmware update?

4.. volume control - why does it always go to max each time a channel is changed?

5.. the preloaded youtube has only audio, the video does not come out... why? now using browser for youtube.

6.. is it possible to save a file on an hdd via usb port while it is being streamed/played?

7.. at main user interface under applications, "apps store" can't open - wat is it for?

8.. how to get airplay going? i tried turning it at xbmc, but the ipad does not detect it.

if too much to answer here, can you direct me to a forum or links to read. tq for yr help.

tis is interesting.

if true, this maxis 10mbps is not good at all. perhaps other users can confirm.

with unifi 10mbps, cloudtv was smooth as silk - during my free trial days.

you mean streaming hd movies with xbmc vs playback of media files?

i dun think the issue is with the q5ii.

streaming smoothness depends on the speed you have, the integrity of the sites you access, the infra traffic, etc.
i get it smooth with some, jerky with others.
mashup is usually fine, 1channel and icefilms less so.

paid channels usually are good, free ones - anything goes...

playback - all is good, like any other media player.

what should i do? is it some setting in xbmc i set wrongly? or maybe the firmware version is old?

i had help, but think it's straightfoward, using the "upgrade" option in settings.
take note this "flash", unlike some other players where yr own settings and preferences are retained, will erase everything.
you need to set it up all over again incl launcher, desktop, addons, xbmc, etc. - all of it.
but best you contact yr seller or maybe ccs can help you so as to do it correctly.

don't think so.

but you can use the himedia browser to save utube page like an app, then place the app at the desktop, which is as good as an app obtained from store.
again i had help but that's what i thought i saw done.

Balls... so annoying. Finally found out why it doesnt want to upgrade. It is looking for a file name exactly as follows :

update_dualcore_Q5.zip

The downloaded file is name "update_dualcore_Q5_en.zip" doh.gif

Updating now. It might be a good idea to put a notis info regarding this at front page.

What refresh rates and resolutions are available over HDMI? Does it support 23.976 and 59.940 or only 24.0 and 60.0 fps output like all other Android players? Hope this one does not repeat or drop frames because HDMI refresh rate does not match movie refresh rate of 23.976.

You can test for frame drops using these files:

i dun know enuf...

i only noticed under xbmc settings, there is an option to "auto refresh" but is for playback only.

have not found anything anywhere to change refresh rates for streaming. right now, i find frames missing and hence "jerking" on most (some ok) 720p streaming. i am not sure if this is due to broadband speed (using 10mbps) or settings or something else. any comment on what i can do?

Nothing to do with xbmc. Isn't there some place in the system display settings where you select 1920x1080p 60Hz, 1280x720 50Hz, etc. for the display mode of your TV?

I just want to know what modes are supported by this player for playing 1920x1080p 23.976 videos. You can use the files I linked with moving bars to see if the refresh rate is correct for each type of file. The bars will jump or freeze and not play 100% smoothly if the display mode is wrong.

Since it supports 3D Blu-Ray iso files, it must at least support 1920x1080p 24 fps frame-packed display format over HDMI 1.4.

Nothing to do with xbmc.  Isn't there some place in the system display settings where you select 1920x1080p 60Hz, 1280x720 50Hz, etc. for the display mode of your TV?

I just want to know what modes are supported by this player for playing 1920x1080p 23.976 videos.  You can use the files I linked with moving bars to see if the refresh rate is correct for each type of file.  The bars will jump or freeze and not play 100% smoothly if the display mode is wrong.

from the q5ii settings, it shows pal, ntsc..... 720p 50hz.....1080p 60hz. no mention of fps, refresh rate.

i find everything working fine with playback on this machine, incl bdmv files.

720p files streaming - some good, some jerky.

1080p streaming, bad jerk, forget it.

i do not know if this problem is due to setting(s), the machine, the addon site, my speed, modem...??

anyone can help?

for q10ii compare with q5ii heat dissipation function is much better de, do not only see the spec in internet, really nid test the real unit de

thx

Thanks for reply bro.

Meaning still realtek player picture video image quality is better? Anyone has tested & compared the difference? Any improvement from last firmware update?

Actually, I have an old 1073DD ++ chipset media player which I contemplate to upgrade. First thought was to upgrade a better spec realtek media player. Now I don't know should i or not? rclxub.gif

himedia android is primarily for streaming, playback as media player is a useful secondary purpose, imo.

i dun know any other android incl higher himedia models, but i can tell you the q5ii video output for playback is inferior to the ac ryans with few year old 1073dd and 1073dd c+ chipsets.

maybe it's not all about old or new chipset but many other things, but that's my experience.

Thank you for checking. The 'HZ' above means the same thing as FPS. Too bad no setting for 1920x1080 24Hz.

Most movies are at 24 fps so when you play at 1080p 60hz for example, it will repeat some frames like so: frame1, frame1, frame1, frame2, frame2, frame3, frame3, frame3, frame4, frame4, .....

This 3:2:3:2 repeat is not as smooth as on players that support 1080p 24hz where it displays each frame once without repeats: frame1, frame2, frame3, ....

Does your TV support 24 Hz mode with other players like your AC Ryan? What model TV is it?

Anyone experience problem when using XBMC on Android with error message "external player active, click ok when playback has ended'
. Happen only on live stream like sports etc.
But works fine on movie streaming and all Navi channel.

thanks for ccomments.

i hv played with all kinds of setting combinations with my tv, acryan, bd player and himedia.

tv is a sharp 42" lcd, capable of 1080p 24hz.

on acryan and bdp, 1080p 24hz makes no diff compared to 1080p 60hz - to my eyes.
trouble is everytime the xx hz changes with a diff file, the display (correctly) will be flashed, screen goes black for a second or 2 - i find this irritating.
so, i usually set all players 1080p 60hz, turn off the 24hz option. perhaps video quality diff notiecable only on larger tvs?

himedia q5ii does not have a setting for 24hz, so the tv with this machine is always on 1080p 60hz.



my original question remains: anyone able to watch all 720 and 1080 material smoothly with q5ii streaming, no jerks? am i missing some setting or 10mbps unifi lan too slow or something else?? tq for any comment.

xbmc 12.2 has no hardware video acceleration for our q5II.

this is suppose to be fixed in gotham with libstagefright

solution is use external player. but this is a hit and miss also..

Abit of digging and I found this :

http://ka8.hk/shoprm.asp?action=show&id=99&class=1

Seems there is another version of the Q series which has a higher spec GPU, use a newer chipset and using eMMC instead of NAND.

The firmware definitely cannot go into our lower end Q5II

u cant use file manager

file manager lowest directory u can go is /mnt/flash or /mnt/sdcard (both are the same folder)

you need to install ES File Explorer which can bring you to the root (/ directory)

only from there you can go to /system/app

diff GUI

but for me the biggest diff for china firmware, you have the option to set an app to boot at launch. its an option that is not available for english firmware (afaik). this is important for me as I want to launch xbmc at start of the device automatically.

you need to go xbmc.org and download the android version of the xbmc. but currently to play 720p & 1080p vid u need external media player. default xbmc player cannot support video hardware acceleration.

this should be fixed by the next xbmc release, but god knows when that will be. I download the latest xbmc 13 alpha10. fixed most of the bug but introduce new one... always crash & still buggy...

yes, just checked. took overnight to get it! laugh.gif

so far, did not notice much diff.. did you observe any change, improvement?

xbmc after xunity installation is less stable - tends to crash more often... no good...

airplay works fine with ipad and ipadmini, auto detect. sometimes need a few seconds for it to detect, sometimes need to off/on the ipad.

non-apple... think need some addon to make airplay work.

Aww thanks for confirming, coz Apple never licensed the video parts of the airplay to any vendor afaik.

This is a good news, i'd not have bought ATV3 if i knew this.

atv3 = appletv?

i oso looked at atv b4 i bot the q5ii. i realized the atv cost more n much of the stuff, you pay to get it. not the gadget for me.



while this q5ii is not that powerful, and the streaming at some sites can be slow, it serves its purpose for its price, at least for me - xbmc, chinese channels, youtube, serve as backup media player, etc. it also takes away need for some astro channels, actually i wonder how astro can get away with charging the news package when most of the news channel incl al jazeera, news channel asia, cnn and bbc are all now available easily free everywhere.

i primarily use the q5ii use to watch world news and tv series while the kids love utube and animation/anime at xbmc.

for blockbusters, i still get bdmv/dtshdma stuff elsewhere and playback.

at first i shortlisted this media player but seems like many troubleshooting and firmware issues complaints by you guys about playback of HD movies and lagging. XBMC problems which is aliens to me.

i really don't need anything that requires me to go Deep Space or another new frontier. Life is a bit of a mess for me right now .

may i ask, how's your frustration or experience with this brand. if it's good, i like to consider getting a trouble free media player.

A few 3D media players that i studied:

1. Android Base : Himedia q10II
-lot of good features...
-how is 3D playback performance?
-do it support all type of 3D format?
-can it handle HD movie with more than 30Gb and higher bitrate?
-firmware update support is reliable?

2.Sigma base player (Dune HD TV-303D,Dune HD Base 3D)
-3D & HD movies playback performance is the best i think
-a bit pricey
-any issue on this player?
-firmware update support is reliable?

2.Realtek base player (AC Ryan PlayOn HD3)
-3D & HD movies playback performance is the best i think
-any issue on this player?
-firmware update support is reliable?

sorry for a numbers of questions
Just wanna be sure before decide buy it...

i do not know much about the 3D features, never had the dune, but i have both himedia q5ii (q10ii is more powerful) and acryan (acr3 has 3d). my limited comments will be...

different users look for different features but it is probably true the "ultimate machine" will be one that can do these 3 smooth, clear and hi quality:

#1. playback smoothly dwnlded files of all common formats incl bdmv, dtshdma, 3d, etc.
#2. streaming using lan between pc and all gadgets whether hard wired or wifi
#3. stream online all kinds of video and audio from live tv stations, xbmc, tv series, chinese, korean, hd movies, soccer, cnn, cartoon network, etc.

#1 is easy - all 3 models you described can do that. in terms of navigation, reliability, firmware upgrade, video and audio quality, i say acr is better than himedia but i dunno about dune.

#2. there should be no problem if hardwired but wifi gets tricky. acryan does not stream hd material over wifi well. audio and lower grade video ok. never tried, but i suspect it will be the same for the himedia.

#3. acryan does not offer much online streaming features besides a few simple ones like news and weather podcasts. youtube has been disallowed, licensing issue, i believe. himedia is the one that is more dedicated to this. while not perfect due to traffic congestion, bad integrity sites, isp speed limit/throttling, etc., i am quite happy with its performance for my needs - world news, chinese movies/tv series, youtube, kids stuff, old and new movies (dvd version of hobbit: desolation of smaug is available at xbmc now). to me, this suggest astro is no longer worth it, about to go for good.

3d is an interesting subject. while many get excited, i think those who go for 3d walk away from it after a month or 2, go back to 2d due to either limited files or too tiring for the eyes.

my conclusion would be if you dwnld and playback hi grade files more, acr is yr best bet. if you will stream more and use other addons more like banking and trade stocks like on pc/ipad, himedia will be yr choice. it can playback files well too.

one thing i will have to wait and see is how durable are himedia players. i hope my q5ii can last as long as my acr which is 4 yrs old now.

Thanks for the feedback bro..
3Dmovie playback performance is important as this is the reason of finding new player.
Currently using xtreamer pro since 2010.i would say this player serve me well.
Since this is old player,it does not support 3D.
I notice Q10ii has a lot of features. For me, i consider it as bonus.

erm.. sorry for misleading.. i installed XBMC (third party software into the system). This software is giving me some lagging issue as it doesnt support hardware acceleration on their current release yet.

This player come with default media player. u can use those media player and it will not gave u the issue that i face.
