Anything from xtreamer is always suspect and that archos video player is only present on archos android box (which is not very good) did they steal it or license the archos box.
xtreamer = avoid
And why do you say this? I seem to find a lot of people with this attitude who don't actually have first hand experience?Quote:

+1, don't even touch with a 100ft pole.

I have experience with them. When I contacted them about some problems I had with one of their players a few years ago the response was amazingly rude and snotty. I sent the player back to Amazon instead of trying to deal with them. I'm not the only person that will tell you the same thing. Just search here and you'll find more people with the same opinion of them.
There are MUCH better companies to deal with than Unicorn/Xstreamer.
See what you're saying... Well it's only just come out so maybe it needs a couple of months to bed down.Quote:

In concept, looks great. In practice, opposite. If you look at their forum, you'll see lots of complaining about how buggy this box is.

Possible, but unlikely given Xtreamer's history. I'll eat my words, and even buy one, if they surprise us on this one.
I've just bought a Boxee Box (1hr ago) to replace my XTreamer 1.I have been using a xtreamer 1 for years with no problems. Wanted to use XBMC so after testing on my laptop I decided to upgrade my xtreamer to a siderwider 4.
Very disappointed, XBMC doesn't run very well and is pre-installed with loads of add-ons I don't want which I can not remove. I am searching for a way to install a clean version of XBMC so if anyone knows how to do this I would be grateful.
