What is the biggest factor while considering a TV box? So far I noticed RAM as the part of the spec. Mibox although is official, seems to be Chinese and also has only 1gb ram. Other boxes are out there with 2 GB and some 3gb ram. So should I consider those with higher ram over mi box?

I bought Roku couple of months back and it was a big mistake. It has only US specific apps. Only Netflix and YouTube work. Not even Amazon works. I wish people here had given me proper advice. I advice everyone don't buy Roku. It is useless outside of US. Even VPN with Roku is useless as Amazon doesn't work over VPN.

The Roku is as much an android TV box as the Apple TV.

Your android box is Android box OS or Android phone OS?

I guess not all apps that are available on Android phone OS are available on Android box OS. This makes even very expensive boxes like Nvidia shield pretty much useless.

This is why I have decided to stay with Chromecast and if an app is not Chromecast capable, then I use screencast.

It seems to have phone Android. You should be able to install. Maybe you can list down the steps you are following and what error you get, people here could help.

Actually, I might have given the wrong impression. After installing toggle, when I open the toggle app, its just stuck at the initial screen. Does not go into the toggle app main menu.
So I guess it is still a failed installation. Even though during installation, I can go through the screen to install and press done. This happened when i tried to install toggle version 3.4.1. early in June. Never tried again after that. Or is it just a problem with that particular version? But fine when I tried it on a android phone.

Heard unblock tech devices have poor internet speed, causing the channels to lag (sometimes)

undecided between the Q Box 4K Android Box and the Unblock Tech
don't know which one to get ?

FTP Server / Daemon

hi !


Anyone has installed FTP Server/Daemon on the Box ? I've tried several but I'm facing some problems.
Some servers are read-only. I found one that allows me to create or delete files/folders BUT does NOT allow me to move files from one folder to another.
Is it a limitation for Android that I cannot move files within the box or just the app ?
Thanks.

If you are just moving files around on your TV box why do you need a FTP server app?

You can't directly move files . You have to use FTP to download the file then use FTP to upload it again

Well it's a FTP server. Why not ? Is Android preventing this or just the app ?
