Anyone here have one ?

I have been thinking for a while about buying one.Very handy for streaming sports and also for watching TV shows and Films.

I downloaded xbmc and added mashup and istream to a tablet I have and its great so will take the plunge and get the android tv box.

anyone recommend me a good one or what sites to buy from ?

I have a RaspberryPI here. Had it setup with xbmc and used it to stream films from a friends server using a vpn network. Worked grand but after a few weeks the novelty was gone. Use it now as a vpn server to access my router etc. from abroad. Sky Germany and Sky Ireland are enough for me TV wise.

My only reservation with buying one ,is that after a few weeks all I will be using it for is a 3pm game on Saturday's.
I can get all the films and TV shows I need on torrents ,so what other uses could I get from this ?

It does have live TV but I already have all the sky channels so not sure what I would use it for bar 3pm ko's and games not on sky/setanta/BT.

Do you have an android phone or tablet ?

you need an Apple TV 2 or previous version. Google season pass or simply jailbreak Apple TV and down load season pass to the laptop. It's ham and cheesy to do. You will need a cable to connect the Apple TV to the laptop, think it takes the same connection as an Alcatel or Samsung phone

Anyone with a android phone or tablet should check out this.sets up xbmc and is the easiest way I have seen.
http://koditime.com/

It takes about 5 minutes to set up and will give you a huge library of TV/films and streams.

An android TV box is the same thing really.
