    Not to be confused with the real Minix

    anyone used this product successfully here? can you setup netflix? I am pretty keen, looks like a real money saver and reviews are quite good.

    •  

      I've been looking for something like this too. Already have a Roku in the lounge room but wanted something cheaper for my bedroom as my XBMC runs Openelec so can't play Netflix.

      Might have to take the plunge.. even thought I'm home tonight to save money, and will end up spending it all cause of OzBargain :P

        Hi guys, I have been using this device from a couple of months now…. I must say it's one of the best Mini PC devices I have ever come across….. It has got the best development support available for such devices, and the device is very stable, never misses a beat… Never had any heating problems etc.

        I haven't used XBMC or Netflix myself but have read about a lot of people using it sucessfully without any problems…

        So if you have been thinking of buying such a device from a long time, I would say now is the time :)

        •  

          Cheers for the advice! Might have to buy it, although not too sure about the remote that comes with it. And most of the 'air mouses' I see are pretty damn expensive!

          Ah how I wish the AU$ hadn't crashed so badly..

        •  

          You don't need a remote if you have a smartphone which is either jailbroken or rooted, just install their app from their website.

      Can someone tell me if we have to pay for the Netflix access? Do we need to use non Aussies IP address to get it working? Thanks

      •  

        You do. You should be able to just use your Australian credit card as Netflix doesn't seem too fussed about it. But if you can get one that doesn't have international transaction fees it helps as well.

        To get access to it though, you'll need something like Unblock-US. I have used it and Netflix (as well as setting up a couple of family members with it too with the Roku) and its worked flawlessly. There are some free options out there, but for ease of use I'd rather just pay the $4.99CA each month for it.

        Although with the AU$ crashing now, it's become a bit more expensive then the $7.99US and $4.99CA a month that it use to cost.

          Hola app works great.. No Unblockus account required. Currently watching Netflix on my LG Optimus G as I type while the wife is feeding bubs.

        •  

          Does Netflix charge less for Canadian?

        •  

          The CA$ I was referring to is for Unblock US, they charge in Canadian dollars while Netflix is charged in US $.

    Should be good to go with Netflix. Just install Hola app first, then install the Netflix apk from xda developers.
    This setup works great on my wife's Galaxy S2.

      Can we install Netflix on any Android tablet? I really need a crash course on Netflix and XBMC :-) i still don't know to optimise the usage of my Nexus tablet. Does anyone have any good link for this? Thanks

      •  

        Should install fine..
        You wont find it in Play Store though..
        just google "Netflix apk xda" to get the link to sideload the app.

          Hi mate,

          Thanks for HOLA recommendation. That's running great on my laptop's Chrome.

          I Got my MINIX yesterday. I was trying to install HOLA on MINIX's Chrome browser so I can watch HULU, but failed. :(

          The only I can do is install HOLA as an Android app, and use VPN on MINIX (as it fails to get a superuser), but then I can not see HULU on the unblocked list!

          Do you know if there is any workaround for this? Many thanks

    These things are usually cheapest on aliexpress.com. You can get a qc802 for US$66.50 shipped. 2Gb ram, 8Gb ROM, quad core processor. XBMC on mine works great. Watching it now. Dont forget you need something to control it with. I got a Mele F10. I also got a usb to ethernet converter. Hardwired is always better than wifi.

    This is standard pricing from geekbuying.

    Am I correct in saying that these Mini PC's will run Android apps just like a phone does? In that I can install games for the kids on it and they can play them on the TV (with an human input device of course, mouse/keyboard, etc).

    •  

      Yep, same OS.
      There's an Android gaming system called Ouya that comes with xbox style controllers that you should investigate. Costs about $100, but comes with controller and is more powerful and a bit prettier
