A quick search over at the xbmc forums would indicate that there is no RK3066 hardware decode support at present. AMLogic or nothing, I'm afraid.

Hey darkrickpr,

Snap! I just ordered one myself today from in4dealz with an airmouse/keyboard and mini hub.
Looks like a decent device. Will be trying xbmc too :good:

By the way there is an android tv section on slatedroid.

Just got mine too (actually it's borrowed as mine is still in the post :(. Wow it's small! Quick boot up and it seems very impressive. Saw my Windows shares without any issues. Seems almost as smooth as my rk3066 tablets although I think it is clocked at a lower speed.

Some great info on this site...

http://www.armtvtech...ewforum.php?f=6

EDIT: It came with 4.0.4 ICS. A few issues...screen overfills the TV display at 1080p or looks squashed at 720p.
Also had an issue with WiFi not connecting. Going to try finless Bob`s v1.4 ROM and xbmc.

I couldn't get it to see any of my movies. It could see my network shares but no media. Maybe need an add on? Do you know anything about setting up xbmc? Thanks.

Es File Explorer could see the shares and I could stream the movies using mx player.

Trying to figure it out from the xbmc wiki and it's leading me in circles!

It shows a video source type called NFS share on the wiki but I don't get that on my version of xbmc.
Anyway I added a couple of video addons for streaming YouTube and CBS news. The result was quite jerky video, maybe 10 fps and no sound on the YouTube one so I'm guessing without h/w decoding support it's not much use.

Edit: ok tried xbmc playing an sd resolution video and a 720p one from the internal memory. The sd one actually plays ok, quite watchable. The 720p one is quite jerky & unwatchable. Both play fine using the built in video player or mx player.

From flicking through the XBMC forums, it would seem that the firmware for the RK3066 is all closed-source and therefore the devs don't have the necessary information to be able to add the functionality for accelerated video/graphics part of the chip.

The source for the AMLogic chips is available and support for the acceleration has been produced by a company for their own devices (which can be hacked to be used for other devices using the same chips). It looks unlikely that similar support for RK3066 will be available any time soon.

Thanks for the information Mariner. Lack of xbmc is not a deal breaker for me though I know a lot of people use it and swear by it.

I do hope the new firmware that is due out any day now sorts out the Tv output though. That will be a deal breaker for many.

If you take a look around there are solutions available so that XBMC will play video in an external video player such as MX player rather than it's internal player. Not as nice as having the all in one solution but many people say it is quite acceptable.

For a good dual core stick which is able to run XBMC with hardware acceleration keep an eye out for the MyGica ATV120 or other branded versions of it. It has the Amlogic 8726-MX chip.

thats really nice if you can use it as a interface and then use the RK video player for H/W decoding.
