I got a Tronfy RK2388 Ubox, also with the same CPU and GPU. But it's different at Wifi standard (IEEE 802.11 b/g/n). I got it for movies too. But i thought it's great for streaming and 4K resolution based of 2GB Ram.

Thumbs up
Just a big ups to this device. Finless 1.2 on freaktab works really well, gets recognized as a nexus tablet device and thus enables a lot of the apps that otherwise don't work. Paired with an HDHomeRun Prime and using the new add-on for HDHomeRun in Kodi (spmc is running great), this becomes a live tv cable box replacement. Doesn't get super hot, and with ethernet, it is running really snappy.

Compared to two years ago when I was messing around with a Tronsmart MK908, this device is really much more consumer ready and not so hobbyist/enthusiast. Can't testify to 4k quality, however.

TVheadend
Hi,
I saw @Christian Troy ROM for WeTeK device that allows running tvheadend backend on android.
I'm using Tronsmart Orion R28 based on Rockchip (RK3288).
I purchased MyGica PT230 DVB-T2 tuner and i want also to run this from tv box.
Currently, the only way to use it is using PadTV HD app.
I want to view via Kodi and tvheadend server.
Could you please explain how to build tvheadend for this device?
Thanks!

I prefered R28 model because i don't like design of S89 . Both of it support external HDD and XBMC/Kodi, of course.

I have been running the pro version since January and can safely say that it now performs beautifully with kodi . gaming is also very smooth and it runs emulators such as ppsspp really nicely. I am currently using the Wasser ROM for the beelink r89 devices (find it over at freaktab) with only one issue, the remote doesn't work with that ROM, no biggie. Wasser has just released a Lolly beta as well, so it looks like we may see development continue on the ROM front.
