I thought I would start a thread after someone said that their MINIX box was horrible, I've had a few interesting (but never really horrible) boxes and tablets over the years, so I'll start the thread with one of them. I was going to start with my PIVOS XIOS DS back in 2013, but that was an example of the trend towards better, more supported Android TV boxes, but now that I've mentioned it, I suppose I will have a go at it. I bought it because of the XMBC client, and I recall that 2013 was the year I bought my first Apple TV after my frustration with the PIVOS and for that, I have to be grateful. The remote on the PIVOS was terrible, a little white thing and next to useless, and really, XBMC was a letdown for me on this box, perhaps because I was comparing it with the version running on one of my DELL machines, perhaps I was expecting too much from the little PIVOS box. Updating the firmware was like diffusing an unexploded bomb on the PIVOS, and I did it the once and that was that, after only a few weeks of playing around, the unit went back on eBay and then I bought my ATV. It wasn't a "horrible" box but it was a disappointment as the hype did not really pan out, story of our gadget lives I expect. More to come, what was your bad experience in Android history?
