Hello all. New to the forums, and Xbmc in general. Sorry if this is in the wrong place but I didn't see for whatever reason a Pivos xios ds section under hardware. Not sure why. Was thinking about getting either a jb atv2 or a pivos xios ds, and after talking to many people and reading it looks like for xbmc purposes, pivos may be the better choice. With pivos can I download from xbmc repo's and transfer from it a usb flash drive? Also which of the two devices mentioned is better?

There is a section for the pivos, it's under the android section of hardware.

I currently use a pivos with Linux on it ( I find it runs better with linux then with android, but
We all have different opinions). So far I am happy with it, seems to do everything I want it for.
The USB slots are useful for adding installing stuff off it, I seem to use the USB a lot.

Sorry I never used an Apple TV so I can't compare them.
