They are open enough to don't be saw as an opensource enemy and probably the released code is what is needed for XBMC on some devices, but I had serious problems getting git access to their code -a lot of code missing for a lot of devices in the web tarballs- even being in representation of a company that sold tablets based on their devices . Also, I got this access cancelled without notificaction some time ago.

Not from what I see. not at all Smile

NIce to know. I will love to see them acting like good FOSS citizens again.

I'm also interested on the hdmi audio output , any clues on this?

So it's a Pivos XIOS DS Media Play -> http://www.pivosgroup.com/my-website#!vs...vstc0=xios

Which was launched last Weds -> http://www.pivosgroup.com/052112#!__052112

Forum here -> http://www.pivosforums.com/viewforum.php?f=11

And the mrp ~ $114.99 which will pitch it around the atv type of market then.

Very interesting although I wonder how it will compete with the wave of slightly cheaper mele/All winner based boxes that have come out. Although reading your posts Davilla it sounds like you have had some support from the manufacturer.

Also I wonder what xbmc is running on top of on this box ;-)

Well done though for whatever effort you guys are putting into this as I'm sure all will be revealed soon.

Bring on the sub $100 xbmc era

I can't wait to get friends and family tiny, open source ARM XBMC boxes for Christmas. Santa's going to look a lot like Richard Stallman. Wink

Looks like its running on the single core AML8726-M. Can't wait to see XBMC running devices powered by dual core AML8726-MX.

This is exactly what I've been waiting for, so I'll join the crowd and say that this is going to be awesome Wink
I'm imagining xbmc-htpcs the size of pendrives Big Grin Just load is with some movies, use a USB-disk or connect it via wifi when you take it to parents/friends/girlfriend/whatever and enjoy.

Wow this is good news that someone has managed to do a proper kernel driver. Can't wait for this to be tested on lots of different hardware platforms like the mele a2000, mk802 etc.

I'm surprised we haven't seen more information coming out, since these Mali developer drivers we're released on the 10th may. Either way can't wait for it and I really appreciate all the hard work that the community is putting into getting us accelerated Mali goodness Smile
