Android Gbox Midnight MX2

Been eyeing this for awhile now.

Besides the different remote, can somebody tell me what the difference is between these two options?

$97
G-Box Midnight MX2 Android 4.2 Jelly Bean Dual Core XBMC Streaming Mini HTPC TV Box Player
http://www.amazon.com/G-Box-Midnight...s=midnight+mx2

$104
Matricom G-Box MX2 Dual Core XBMC Android 4.2 TV Box + Special Edition XBMC [NEWEST VERSION]
http://www.amazon.com/Matricom-G-Box...s=midnight+mx2

The cheaper one seems to be the older one but I really don't see the difference specs wise other than the keyboard remote.

Yes. You can add them to your xbmc library. You'll still have to find a working link once you click on the show in your library. Fish will probably recommend What the Furk if you really want convenience, though.

I checked out what the furk but I can't find any links in any of the show folders.

Furk is a subscription service that you pay for. Like an old school netflix with torrents. Request your shows and movies, they pull them from torrents for you and allow you to stream or download from their dedicated servers. It costs like 9 bucks a month I think. Eliminates the hassle of slow servers and trying to find a reliable streaming site. What the Furk is the xbmc app that interacts with the Furk service.

Each of the plugins has a subscription feature. Which is the handiest way to accomplish that. 1Channel keeps track of episodes you've watched, and puts a check mark beside watched episodes automatically. You can search movies/shows by genre, popular, and so on. Once you find all your shows, it makes it pretty easy.

Once you use it for a while, you'll start to find which sources work well for you. Some sources are slow and buffer a lot. But certain ones almost always start instantaneously. My favorite sources for 1Channel: putlocker, sockshare, filenuke, mightyupload, vidxen. Just remember which ones you try that work.

In addition to the subscribe feature, you can also add a TV series to your Library. Which is handy because when there's a new episode available, it will show up automatically in the Recently Added Episodes list. So you don't even have to search at all, it'll just be listed in Recently Added Episodes right on the main page along with any other series you add. You click that, and it will give you a list of sources. Very handy. Not sure if that makes sense since you've never seen it.

makes perfect sense. I'm getting all my shows added now and will see how it works next week. I'm a big fan of putlocker but for some reason they never work for me on 1channel. Really odd.

EDIT

This is just on my PC and tablet right now. I don't get the gbox until next week.

putlocker and sockshare are the same server, by the way. Both work equally well. But they have very frequent takedown notices, so the vids disappear sometimes.

one of the shows aired tonight. Curious, when it says 104 watches does that mean 104 successful watches or just 104 attempts to watch?

Successful watches. And it doesn't make much sense, but I've noticed that the sources with the most watches tend to be more reliable.

I think they swept them or something, because I'm having issues with the popular sources tonight as well. I've had to use some "off brand" sources all evening.

I'm not seeing a recently added episodes list anywhere on the 1channel menus. Does that show up after a new ep pops in?

No, not in 1Channel. It shows up in the main XBMC menu.

The XBMC Library won't show up though, until you actually add something to the Library. That confused the hell out of me at first too.

Read this post on how to add to the Library. There's also a video there.

something is screwy about this. It tells me to add the fusion folder but when I follow teh instructions for fusioin to the letter, the zip file never shows up.

http://www.xbmchub.com/blog/2012/04/...tion-for-xbmc/

EDIT

figured it out finally.

I'm noticing that some of the tv shows are completely up to date in the library even though they are up to date on 1channel itself. Arrow is 3 episodes behind in the library. Is this because the TVDB database isn't caught up?
