I can't find any information regarding the chipset, anyone have any idea?
Just spoke to the sales person during the PC Show, claims that the asiabox supports Wireless N and having promotion price of $299. Don't know if he is smoking me?

Hi, are you using fibre for your streaming ? Heard a lot of media players have problem with fibre network.


Thanks

my fren bought this on thursday!

Problems found!

1) Youtube buffering problem.

2) Asia VOD movie - unable to stream newest movies. BOX will restart on its own w/o warning.

3) Front USB port detection problem - Unable to detect USB Wifi Dongle (comes with the box). Must wiggle it to get it detected but will lose the connection again.

Tried using google DNS servers for DNS settings. Still the same for streaming which is suggested in their website.

They will show u @ PC show the movies that can be watched. Choose the newest movies see can stream or not!

Somehow, being a marketing person myself, I know 90% of those $#%^#@&@# from the sales person will be BS. Only thing is... can we live with all those issues/problems of the products (which of course as a salesperson, they will not tell you). The more I about this (basing of my experience following the products brought in by Amconics.... from their Zen10 to their Zen12... problems abound.... it's all due to the products' support from their origin countries... they just can shutdown anytime Anyway, will go and hear them out again this evening
