Slightly amusing how not clued in the maker of this box is, the device uses an Amlogic chip which is the only chip supported by XBMC on Android and they instead supply a hacked version of XBMC that replaces the media player with MX Player making it a shell only.

These M6 generic boxes have a ton of problems, if anyone is interested go look at the ATV1200 thread in the XBMC Android sub-forum. Your on your own buying these and pretty much a guinea pig for development/testing.

Hi, I have Bluetimes MX5,and works pretty well but I have problem with DTS sound. Everything is OK by PCM but on OPTI or HDMI passthrough there is no sound on any video playback software. Any advice ?
And a second issue, witch USB video camera work with this crap without additional actions. Just plug and play.
Thx, for any info.
