So now you let the cat out of the bag and offer a reservation (seems to be a tender offer like you did with the sellout of AV100/200) + an obligatory subscription.
I was quite sceptical when you introduced the Login so that this box with recurring costs is no longer an option for me.
Sad but true :bs2:

I agree,  I'm Shocked, Membership is a bad business plan and it's going to make customers go away i really wanted some units, but gone down this road before and got burned Plus what happens if they go out business. 

this online access stuff is crap I really wish they reconsider I really wanted it Plus it sounded so good blu-ray access, hub access.   They better offer Lifetime Membership price guess ha = 49.99 + 23.88= 73.87+ Shipping $$$

I see in the specifications that the Vidon box supports only up to 1080 resolution through the HDMI.  Is that a firmware limitation?  Will Vidon support 4K like Minix X8-H for example which actually has a little bit inferior GPU.

4K is not a popular demand, so our $49 VidOn Box does not support it.

Indeed...

However, this is the 'VidOn Box' area of the forum. It's not the 'AV200' or 'VidOn XBMC' area of the forum. Meaning, if anyone wants to moan about bugs not being fixed, they should do so within the correct areas of the forum?

Anyway... I did ask nicely!

Thats right...i apologize.


All that matters if the hardware runs stable out of the box,who care Google, xbmc is better,I do prefer a stable and optimized software than the hardware.

Google is a Search Engine that can give you a lot of answers.

As far as i know, it does not work so well as a Media Center and is far too big for your average Living Room.

Thats the key word!
but at the end of the day A31 is a A31 ...
2moro is the day :)

It should be more than fast enuff for this Task....Firmware is all that matters.

I see in the specifications that the Vidon box supports only up to 1080 resolution through the HDMI. Is that a firmware limitation? Will Vidon support 4K like Minix X8-H for example which actually has a little bit inferior GPU.

The GPU is not involved in HW Decoding (ARM!)...nor is it inferior.

HDMI has different levels, for 4k you will need at least HDMI 1.4, Special Cables and a capable Display.

Since there is no Content available, its a useless Feature.

You will need a very fast Internet Connection too......or a crappy low encoded 4Stream which is in fact worse than a good 1080p Stream (Still rare!)

Shipping fee will less than $15 I guess, we are confirming this with the third party logistics. According to your location in the world the shipping fee will be a little different.

I took a video by my phone to show you the new UI of VidOn Box, and how to add source, how to play Blu-ray in Menu Mode. After adding a source, it needs some time to collect the movie information or take a screenshot of the video or create thumbnail for picture. If you don't use any XBMC addons, VidOn Media Center can totally replace XBMC. :tootha:

Very nice impression. A video of the video & audio setting options would be also fine. Is CEC supported? Are their settings for the scraper results as well e.g. for differnet languages?

Good question! I thinks the language of the movie information will follow your box's language. When the first time you turn on the box, you need to do some settings, to set your language, to login your account, etc. So if you choose German,the movie info will be German. That's the correct logic. :cool:
BUT I need to confirm this question. :tootha:  :sweat:
