updates on the media player project02 Oct 2013
In my previous post about the media player project I expected several possibilities, but I found a better option for all of this, which is a simple Android Player box like the G-Box Midnight 2. I found a cheap clone of the G-Box here on dx.com, which has the exact same board and replaceable firmware.
Took a few weeks to arrive but when it did it was easy enough to replace the Android OS with Linux + XBMC which made a great media player system. Attached a disk for storage and supports WLAN/LAN, so now I've got a nice present for about 60 euro + a cheap 1 TB USB harddisk (60-70 euro).
