    You could just install xbmc and then the xbmx hub and not have to use the mx box at all. Might take a small bit of time initially, setting it up, but it saves having to complicating things,

    Hi thanks for the 2 replies i think i go for the second option.Just one other thing i with Sky BB is it safe to use with these boxes. Thanks in advance. I don't need a converter with this cable do i. I read some posts on Amazon one cable is analogue and the other is digital it might not work.

    maybe because you can put the mx box at back of tv. as for pc being old and on vista ( I didnt know anyone still use vista) I would install a linux distro ( and its free) and install xbmc onto that

    Peeps are buying them as they want to run xbmc through there tv, were you on the other hand just want to run it through your laptop,
    so why bother buying a box when you can just install xbmc on your laptop and if you want to watch it on your tv just buy a male to a male monitor lead and audio lead cost about a fiver
    Code:
    XBMX for windows pc here
    http://xbmc.org/download/
    then just install the plugins you want and away you go Hidden Content

    I read it, as that he had already got the Android mx box ?....thats why I said about the Std HDMI to SVGA VGA Male to Male lead.

    If not it would be cheaper just to download the XBMX for windows software to run on his Pc.

    Hi, the only reason to use the android box is if you haven't got a computer hooked up to your tv. It's a solution for those who want a basic media center in their living room not a superior alternative to a PC based media center. As others have stated, XBMC.
