Just FYI for those who are thinking of getting this box - Mine (2017 non-Pro variant) just went kaput. Refuses to boot up, no light, nothing. Tried it with another power supply (have another 2015 non-pro variant), no go.

Nvidia will not help, because their warranty doesn't apply here and they don't sell it here.

Luckily I bought it from Amazon, they will create a return label for return, but minus a restocking fee.

Really thought the QC has improved from the time I got the 2015 Pro version (hdd up lorry after a firmware update, but Amazon to the rescue), but I think I'm never going to get such an expensive Android box again. Mi Box here I come.

Heyo sire, fellow staunch Android fan! Mine got RMA twice out of warranty by Nvidia.
It is expensive i agree, but apps (TV versions) are so fluid. even kodi's UI navigation doesn't lag even for a millisecond.

then again, since miboxes comes with AOSP system nowadays..
it make more sense to get the more cost effective variant. So long it ain't branded "Minix"

I know the quality of the software and the power of the hardware, that's why I got 2. But it's painful when Nvidia doesn't care about buyers out of the US. Yours was RMA through Amazon as well? Shipping to the US is gonna cost quite a bit as well, how did you do it?

Ok, that's nice. Gonna try that first then. Because when I was using the 2015 version, they die die don't want to service the warranty because they don't sell it here.

Hi @Mr_YA_HA: Where did you get the HomeRun from? Is it the US, UK or AU version? Is it the Connect Quatro?
