Hey guys just joined the forum. A friend of mine told me about these Android sticks and I recently just ordered one (Android 4.1 Mini PC TV Box Rockchip RK3066 1.6GHz Dual Core 1GB RAM 8GB ROM WiFi HDMI Full HD Droid Stick T10), don't know if this is the mk808 that everyone seems to be talking about but I think it is. As you can see I know nothing about this stuff but through this forum and the help and advice of everyone, I should get much better. Can't wait for it to show up. I ordered on Thursday so I'm hoping that because it ships from Canada that I should receive it soon. See you around guys.

Cheers

Welcome to the forums Streaker1978!
Sounds like you got the MK808 but we can't be positive because a lot of new devices are using the RK3066. Where did you order it at and what did you pay for the device and shipping?
Thanks for posting cya around!

Hey Max thanks for the greeting. I still haven't received it yet (been a week no update so far), I ordered from a website called Tikkitoo.com and I paid $99 free shipping. Thought because they ship from Montreal Canada which isn't too far from me that it would be lighting fast shipping. I would have ordered from this site if I found it first though. Who knows, if they don't update my order from pending soon, I may cancel so you might get a sale from me yet. Great site and I look forward to all of the things that I'll learn from it.
Cheers

Received it in the mail yesterday Nov 21. Had a couple of hours to fiddle with it last night and I hit quite a few snags. It is definitely the Rokchip MK808 that I have btw. I am an Android newbie so it will take a while to get used to it though. Basically I tried to stream 720p movies with DTS through my network and it was always very laggy or if the video was good, I had no sound. Secondly I tried to stream live sports off of Firstrow and Vipbox but I guess they use flash so no luck there ..... just found out that flash was taken off for mobile devices??? Will try to dig into fixes for these problems and will be back with a further review ..... and questions I'm sure.

Cheers

I followed the instructions on how to install Dolphin and flash player and it worked. Its still really choppy with live sports so I think I am going to purchase a usb/ethernet adapter and hopefully that will fix things. I am going to get an external drive to put my MKV movies on so I think that will fix the issues that I am having with that as well. I'll let you know how that turns out.

Re your flash player problem, try Firefox, works flawlessly for me (apart from full screen at the moment, I'm hoping installing the finless rom helps in that regard)

Side note $69 for the 808 on this site! Don't hesitate, worth every penny.
