Unfortunately, I got bit by the Android box bug about 5 years ago. Since then I have purchased more than 2 dozen of these boxes. Some were good, but by today’s standards, most were/are junk…
Here are some of the ones that I tinker with on a daily basis. Yes, I have about 8 of these devices connected to my main TV at all times. My AVR has 5 inputs on the rear, and my TV has 3 more HDMI inputs. I also have an HDMI splitter. Um, my coffee table is full of remotes.
