About

Good day y’all!

I started this blog to share some of my interests and passions with the like-minded public.

In it, I will publish product, movie and tv series reviews, photos, thoughts and other knick-knacks. It’s all still brewing and may change completely at any minute.

Therefore, and until otherwise stated, this blog is in a flux and a constant beta status!

Thank you for visiting.

  1. Any suggestions for 4k@60 and 10bit playback of video files?
    ..oh yeah and Blu-ray rips using pass-through.

    From all the he reviews read so far NONE of the players do perform well using a LAN connection for those very high rate files: that’s where all my files reside.

    • Hi Mike! I do emphasize that my testing environment is less than ideal and the use I make of network over powerlines (PLC) inhibit the speed and performance of my LAN when it comes to kodi playback.
      You can find more accurate network testing results at cnx-software.com
      I can still give an accurate picture of a device performance in comparison to others in areas such as stability, game/app performance, and such. Also, the slower network speed does not affect (usually) standard 720p/1080p playback and has much more to do with heavy 4k content.
      Thanks for visiting!

    • Most AMlogic S905 based boxes can handle 4k@60fps with 10bit. Also, now there is the new RK3229 based boxes coming out with the same capabilities. What you need to look out for is a good manufacturer that keeps support up after sale (Minix and Tronsmart are the market leaders at the moment), and that the box supports HDMI 2.0 and provides good network performance. You can check performance here on my blog reviews, and also head to cnx-software.com which carries network performance comparison tables for many models.
      Cheers!

  2. Hi,

    Just following up as I didn’t hear back from you, sorry to email you again. I noticed your page http://www.eyalo.com links to http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/. Unfortunately, that site isn’t very accessible for the sight impaired. Would you consider adding a link to a more accessible version like http://www.thetimenow.com/worldclock.php which is WCAG 2.0 compatible?

    Also, if you ever want to see how accessible a page is, I recommend http://wave.webaim.org. It is really helpful.

    Thanks,

  3. how can i benchmark my vu+ solo 4k box ? it has dual 10000mips cpu and 3gb ddr ,its all the time thinking of what to do ! is this a low spec cpu ? is Amlogic S905H cpu or Tegra X1 cpu any better ?

    • Hi Jimmy!
      I’ve checked out the specs on your SOLO4K box, and it seems that it is running a customized OS named Enigma2. As this is not a common OS such as Android or Windows, you cannot really run any of the benchmarks used to measure and compare performance on those OS based boxes. Sorry. These days it is better to choose a box based on either Android or windows as other customized Operating systems do not have too many options in terms of applications and games.

  5. Curious as to absence of Nvidia Shield Android TV among your reviews. Would have been interested in comparing to HiMedia Q5 and the Minix Neo

    • Hi Peter!
      Merry Christmas!
      Well, I can only (naturally) review devices that get sent to me from their manufacturers.. Sadly, Nvidia did not bother to reply to my requests..
