    Hi, I currently have an android tv box at the moment but will be updating in the future.
    Droidbox offer several different devices and I wondered which box would be the best for me and why.
    I currently use my android device to watch live sport, movies and tv through kodi.
    Also I believe kodi 17 will be out soon so would it be worth waiting.
    Thanks Steve

    Hi Steven.
    The t8s plus and t8 mini are all good boxes and I use them extensively to watch live sport.
    Owning an android box, you will be aware that no matter how powerful a box you have, if there is contention on the host servers, then you will get buffering. However, given a good stream, both boxes perform well.
    You do not have to wait for Kodi 17, once it is formally released you will be able to download it onto your box either from Google play store or the official Kodi site.

    You need a minimum of lollipop 5.0 android firmware to run Kodi 17

    T8 Mini is an excellent box in my opinion. Future proof.

    Not at all.
    You can run kodi 16 or dbmc 16.3 (nothing higher).
    Everything works. And will work for a long time.
    Why do you think the box is no good?
    Kodi 17 has not even been formally released yet.

    16.1 is fantastic - nothing at all wrong with running that. I do.

    Im running Kodi 17 RC3 and 16.1 / DBMC 16.3

    Dont be fooled in thinking that just because kodi 17 is out, that it's much better. OK its good but besides asstetics, there isnt much difference visable.

    Most of kodi 17 new features are the way it haddles resorces etc. There is still a lot of life left in 16 yet, and 17 for android is nearly double the size of 16.

    Not a lover of it myself either, new versions of anything be it firmware, apps doesn't mean they are better.

    I wait a while - a long while before I update Versions and firmware etc coz there is always the usual load of messages about whats gone wrong, boxes bricked etc. Scares the hell out ov me every time a new update comes out coz I never know when to take the leap.
    Im sticking with 16.1 Jarvis coz its running sweet.
