How does this box compare to the new Nexus Player, used mainly for XBMC/media playback?

Hey not sure if this was covered. Someone mentioned it played 3D ISO in XBMC but in 2D only? Well 2 things to consider...was the option in XBMC set to play the ISO in 3D or 2D (assuming they have a custom version like VidOn...aka CrapOn). If it has that option then it may have been set to 2D unknowing to the poster of that comment. Also, if they do not have a custom version of XBMC, it may have to be played via the file browser. If anyone owning this box can let me know. Also I am looking at the X8-H Plus as it has a slightly updated CPU.

The RemoteIME is not working in my new neo x8-h. I can turn on the remote controntol button at the neo x8-h and it shows the IP adress. But my android phone (Acer E380) is not able to find the neo x8-h. I am using the same network. Google TV remote works. Yatse works in XMBC, RK Remote Control from Minix is not working. DroidMote is still not testet, I will do that after Rooting my Neo. Does anyone have an idea why the RemoteIME ist not working?

What about custom ROMs on this device ? Is Minix community-friendly ? Sadly I don't see much development for Minix pc here on XDA
What about some OS like Debian ARM, Arch Linux ARM ? Is it possible to install them on these minipc in general ?

I've already posted this question in the X8-H PLUS thread, but I'm trying to understand how the community support these kind of devices

Problem of Minix is no real support for custom ROM's and no any kind of support in general, they just compile from SDK and even dont want to fix bug's, such shame.....

They reply quite quikly on the forum, but i don't know about their support.
Surely I would have preferred more development here on xda.
