    Second impressions (after upating) :
    1) Market - Now fully working
    2) iPlayer - Won't play from web site or app but I CAN get live BBC News in the BBC News app (ITV Player not on the market so still not tried)
    3) YouTube - Works fine now
    4) Calendar -Still not found a way to sync with my Google Calendar? The only sync option on the Google account is Picasa
    Overall very pleased with the box

    Another way to install apps is from the Google market website on your PC, you can tell it to install the apps on the media player which otherwise don't show on the built in market.

    Awww! I hope they do decide to provide the upgrade. "Not yet decided" does sound a bit like marketing speak for "we have decided not to give it but don't want to let you all down yet" :(

    Just tried uninstalling flashplayer 10.2 (after backing it up just in case) and installing the new version (11) from the market. Surprisingly I've now managed to get BBC iplayer working albeit slightly jerkily - I think that's more down to my broadband speed but will check it at different tmes of day. I have not been able to download ITV player (which states that the geniatech m3 board is incompatible!) but I'm still working on it. Other flash applications seem to be fine.

    Anyone know if there's anyway of making this unit appear as a NAS, or some way of being able to just switch the until on and have something auto run to be able to send files to it?

    Mirror to firmware.

    and what does he mean by "oh, the old stuff... we did not decide yet"?? they should provide "support/updates" for at least 2 years, not just update for the box and then move on with new box and forget about old. they sold plenty old boxes, they not gonna sell as many new boxes. hope they care about the people who bought the box, and not only about who will buy the box(

    Something is wrong with Youtube in this compilation 20120111.163332
    Its not playing HD :/ on my box. When you hit Update app there is compilation 20120111.292744 to download. It's look like 2011.12.12 upgrade to show on CES how upgrade looks like.

    Two nice apps: cache cleaner and wi-fi upload.

    Might give this a try. I tried iPlayer on Dolphin Browser last night but no luck. I know this worked on an old phone even though I didn't have Flash.

    EDIT : Tried it and I get jerky video too so probably not the broadband as I normally have about a 7meg connection and the box (on wifi) is right next to the router.

    EDIT 2 : Set the video quality to the lowest level in the iPlayer app and it's not as jerky. Watchable but not ideal

    I made a mistake, I tried to update to 20111102 firmware without update the SPI before.

    When I try to update to spi20111102 I enter into the Recovery system menu but I can

    Hi all,

    I have updated to 20120111.163332 and all seems fine so far. Can stream flash and You Tube no problems.

    A few new apps that are cool as mentioned previously and I like the inclusion of adobe reader.

    I did the manual update 20120111.292744, it downloaded, rebooted and seems to install but it doesn't. Once fully loaded the software is still 20120111.163332 than after a few minutes it gives you an option to download 20120111.292744 again. weird.

    Has anyone got the 20120111.292744 to install and run?

    On a slightly different note is there an idiots guide to copying your apps from mobilephone to the box?

    And finally thanks to stasik I have now got my box to stream movies over my network :)

    I managed to downoad ITV player from the web onto an SD card and installed it using the Appinstaller. You also need Adobe Air from Android market and ITV player then works but at very low quality (probably OK on a mobile phone but on a 46" TV not so!!). Not had a chance to review the BBC iplayer any further yet.

    Does anyone have flash working in Dolphin with Android 2.3? I have not yet upgraded to 2.3, and any time I try to play a flash video in Dolphin, it crashes the box.
