    Anyone familiar with this box? It's a forum sponsor.

    Looks pretty good:


    MyGica ATV 1800e MyGica - Turn Any TV into Smart TV


    It's not GoogleTV, but it's Android on KitKat with a browser and Flash support. And it's not a knockoff box.

    A company in Canada:

    Android KitKat

    Quad core CPU; Octa core GPU

    2GB RAM

    4k support.

    Embedded full XBMC (Kodi), all add-ons.

    Embedded browser.

    Dolby Support from HDMI-out.

    Four USB ports for wireless keyboard, etc.

    WiFi, no ethernet.

    Has Google Play Store.

    Over-the-air updates.

    Phone Cust. Serv. and site forum for support.

    I would like to see evidence of Flash support with Android 4.4.x. I have tried the Dolphin Browser with jetpack on my Android mini PC without success. I have seen claims it will work but never actually seen it work. Geniatech MyGica is better than most of the Chinese Android mini PC makers with better support. It should be noted, none of these Chinese Android mini PCs can run any of the mainstream subscription streaming services well, at least as far as I know. No Netflix 1080p, no Netflix Dolby Digital Plus and the same problems or worse with Amazon Prime, Vudu, HBO GO, Google Play Movies, Hulu Plus, etc, all either don't work period or work poorly. All of those services require approved devices with proper DRM handling, none of these boxes meet those requirements.

    MyGica is rumored to be planning, maybe even officially announced, an approved Android TV device which will overcome most issues, except probably browser with Adobe Flash support.

    Mygica is actually Geniatech. I have the ATV1000 from 2010. But $190 for the ATV1800 from Amazon.ca?

    Either as a parent subsidiary or division, like General Motors Chevrolet, or simply as a brand name for the Geniatech TV boxes. I knew this which is why I stated Geniatech MyGica above. Here is the Geniatech web site with products, including the ATV1800e discussed here. It may have been that Geniatech purchased MyGica or just started the brand and use the name in certain countries.

    Huh?

    I was asking JSchall "how are" the boxes as devices to use. I'm well aware of the company in China that actually manufactures the boxes, as I read all about it before posting the thread-starter.

    I'm asking for useful information from someone who's actually used these boxes

    He stated Geniatech is MyGica and you asked how are they. I responded to what you typed, apparently not what you meant.

    His last sentence was (quote): "I have the ATV1000 from 2010. But $190 for the ATV1800 from Amazon.ca?"

    And I asked: "How are they?" (duh)

    You obviously have a reading comprehension deficit.

    Ya, I agree how are they could elicit a duh if it was in response to his statement he owns the ATV1000. How is how are they supposed to be a meaningful question to that statement? He owns a single item, how is that a question that makes sense in response to that statement? On the other hand, how are they in response to Geniatech and MyGica are the same, that could make sense.

    The old ATV1000 worked fine, and Geniatech provided decent product support and firmware upgrade. But I think $190 is 'way too much.
