Customer Reviews

Very fast and well working smart-tv box!
Mattias Öberg
As said, the Satechi isn't the simplest thing to set up but neither is it hard if you're even a little tech savvy and/or familiar with android.
Nathan Goldberg
I can't recommend this device for XBMC HD playback.

this device is very nice, works well and is fast. default software is okay, but not great. **IS NOT ROOTED** despite the youtube review. they must have supplied the reviewer with a different unit. this is very annoying, since I would not have ordered this device if I had known this. also, it seems impossible to use ADB :(

We like the satechi tv box... Fast, looks good has usb ports and net works well with all our phones for file sharing/casting. Stock software not great, but if you want you can change launchers to apex, nova or tv launcher. We like tv launcher. I found an old version of YouTube for google tv boxes which works better for these boxes, plays next video when you want to watch a bunch without having to select the next video. ES file explorer is a must to handle files, sharing, copy, paste, and side loading of apps. ES file explorer is great with handling folders, pics, video, usb, file searching! Archos video player pro a must get it, get the all codecs app as well! Download a version of xbmc that is compatible for rockchip boxes, I have xbmc beyond installed. Mashup is 1 of the best and there are a lot more repos and addons to make xbmc work with sports, video, tv episodes, PBS, Discovery channel, usb drives, etc. This is a must Google search Show box app and install it!!! I have netflex black installed, v2.1.2. Hulu, Red box, amazon prime. No need for cable! We use a Logitech keyboard, better then stock remote. We can mirror/cast to satechi box well with avia app on our phones. If you need help, always google things or youtube and search for other android tv box groups like satechi or others. We all can work together.

pros: looks great, works great with usb, great with file sharing, can cast picks/video from our phones, xbmc, showbox, Hulu, Netflix, redbox, and all the apps you want from app store. Don't forget you can search and side load apps! Best with keyboard. Online tv.

[UPDATE]

At the suggestion of another Amazon member, I installed the XBMC nightly build on this box and attempted HD playback again.

Unfortunately I cannot raise my 1-star rating. While it really was MUCH BETTER with the majority of my content, it still was not perfect. Playback of 1080p material is still a bit glitchy and often experienced audio sync issues, but both of these issues are easily ignored or fixed by the internal XBMC controls, so perhaps my expectations are a bit high for a low-cost device, and I'll forgive it for not having absolutely perfect playback (even over Ethernet).

That being said, the reason for not raising my 1-star rating is that there are still some 1080P h.264 AVC1 AAC videos in my library that it just doesn't seem to be able to handle. They playback is very jerky, the frame rate is very low, and the audio completely out of sync. The strange thing is, one video of this category will play fine and the next one experiences issues. I will mention that these play perfectly on my android phone and tablet, so I can't really imagine its something to do with the file itself.

Also realize that XBMC on Adroid currently does not support anything other than 720p, so to advertise this box as a 1080p XMBC device is perhaps a bit misleading. Yes, you can set the box to output 1080p, but XBMC currently won't do it. It will downscale 1080p content to 720p. To be fair, this is an XBMC issue and not one with the box itself, but the title of the product on Amazon might lead one to believe 1080p playback is possible with XBMC. It currently is not, though perhaps it may be in the future.

I also had issues using the remote to get out of certain dialogs, both XBMC-related and non-XBMC-related.

It was easy setup. But, after that the manual was incomplete. Phone call support unavailable when calling. Wireless internet access worked. Should have had more explanations concerning XMBC not being installed and these comments below:

1. What formats supported for hard drive connected to the Satechi Smart TV?

2. How do I delete a file which is in the download folder?

3. How is XMBC setup on the Satechi Smart TV. I want XMBC to recognize my hard drive.
I formatted the drive to Mac OS Extended Journal and it couldn't locate the files (Satechi Smart TV).

4. What bluetooth enabled adapter should I buy for the Satechi Smart TV Box?

Should anyone have answers to these questions reply if you can.

Product excellent, manual sucks. It would be helpful to have access to more information about setup online as well as more general information about its features and capabilities. Also, as this product was sent to Australia so it would have been helpful if the package included a local electrical socket adaptor.
