    Ok, that's fine. But were my original questions ever answered?

    Um what are you talking about? You just replied to a post I made more than 4 months ago - do you realize that? Where have I posted this question before? And were exactly did you answer it (please provide URL link to your answer).

    Using microphone (Minix A2) with Mygica (495 or 1900) yes/no? Webcam?

    I'm wondering if the built-in microphone in the Minix A2 will work with the Mygica 495 or 1900. I'm asking specifically for use in skype. Bonus question: How well do USB web-cams work on Android boxes in general, and (if anyone know) the Mygica boxes in particular? Again I'm asking in terms...

    New to set-top streaming boxes - need to ask a few basic questions.

    Where I live in Canada, I'm anywhere from 60 to 120 miles from any US TV transmitters and would need a very large outdoor antenna mounted to a tall mast (and rotator) to reliably receive them, and maybe then only on a good tropo night. The local OTA channel selection is pathetic. I cut my...

    Is it ok if I download Krypton (apk) on my pc and transfer it to the box via thumb drive? (I don't want to interact with google/play store - don't trust google).

    I think the box has Jarvis version of Kodi. Should I first update it to (I guess) Krypton before doing anything else?

    So, to ask this question another way, KFL is like watching movies on your pc on a site like Viooz? But where Viooz wants to put up a lot of stupid advertising, the KFL set-top box is streaming from file lockers that will give you low-quality (for free) but really want you to pay a few bucks a...

    New to set-top streaming boxes - need to ask a few basic questions.

    For about 5 or 6 years I downloaded from lockers as free user, finding the links on sites like avaxhome. I used Jdownloader. About a year or so ago avax changed the hosters they allowed in their links and went to all pay - no free access. I recall that it was possible to stream directly from...

    New to set-top streaming boxes - need to ask a few basic questions.

    I did pick up a MyGica 495 from a local retailer for $130. They were very careful to tell me in the store that they couldn't answer any questions about Kodi. Regarding the KFL stuff, I was under the impression that some smart people had figured out a way for these boxes to access the various...

    New to set-top streaming boxes - need to ask a few basic questions.

    I'm new to set-top media boxes, and have been asked by some family relatives to look into this and see what it's all about. I'm refering to the "Kodi Fully Loaded" (or KFL for short) thing. I have some basic questions that I haven't seen asked or answered in the general media or on other web...
