      Hey Marcus,

      I contacted Geniatech and am awaiting a response.

      I’ll post an update asap. It is Chinese New Year in, well, China, right now, so it’s party time for them. I’ll give them a bit of grace but check back soon.

    Icontected the guys yesterday and the answered within 4 hours !
    …email with documents and more – very nice service.
    I can buy the box now, the price is 160USD ! payment via paypal.
    But the box didnt have DVB-T :-(((

    I hope the new year party ends now :-)

    • Darcy Alexander

      Hey Marcus,

      I see you’ve been proactive in your quest to find the perfect solution for your cool media setup. You know, it might be worth the wait. Google is hard at work to open up the floodgates for Android TV Set Top boxes in 2011, and the perfect one might be just around the corner. They certainly deserve the party they are having though ;)

      I got the response that their office will open up on (ouch) February 9th.

      I’ll keep you posted!

    Android TV Box ATV2000 “is the law” now:

  • Zack

    My question may look stupid, but, since we can install .APK applications on these boxes, how are we going to control them? Android application are mostly touch enabled applications. I don’t think we can really control a touch screen application with a simple TV remote. I’ve seen that some boxes are mouse compatible, but to play Android games, a single point interaction device (mouse type) can’t be enough. Anyone has more information about that? A new Android set-top box may replace my always bugged WDTV Live :).

    • Android TV

      Geniatech ATV2000 has a “Fly mouse Keyboard”, it’s very smilar than Wii control. Also can connect your mouse and keyboard by USB port. Even a joystick wireless with gravity sensor can be used for play 3D games. Check the “Fly Mouse Keyboard” here:

      • Zack

        Thanks a lot for your answer! So I’ll try the the remote that comes with the ATV2918.

    Hello: I have an Android TV box and so far so good. But no MANUAL ! It is a ‘MyGica Android TV Box Basic V1000’ and I am struggling with the set-up, etc, as there is no help and no internally stored manual. The links to ‘User Manuals’ on the MyGica website do not work.
    Any advice from anyone?
