    Oh come on, the NEO X6 was launched in 2014 and at the time was touted as the low end model when compared to the NEO X8 and I don't know about back then but right now, my NEO X6 runs on my spare TV and will stream everything I need (in 720P) off the web, IPTV streams, YouTube and media off my networked drive. It is a very good music jukebox and internet radio, in a zone where I get no AM/FM reception. It is stable, it is fast enough and for a machine that's in it's third year, quite cool.

    I can make you a list of horrible boxes if you want, I've had quite a few over the last six years....

    Do you think that`s fair to give a brand a bad rap on a device that is several years old and was not the top model back when it was released ;) Were the ram and storage a surprise to you o_O surly you would of done some research before your purchase

    We have four Minix boxes in the family two U1's and two X8H- Plus a bit more up to date than yours
    did some "research" and found they have 2gb of ram and 16gb of storage
    plenty of power
    never had a problem with any of them

    @mark2 I have an X6, works fine, 1gb + 8gb and it runs KODI well, Youtube, slower than some of my boxes, but a good solution to run KODI on a spare TV and I am careful what I install on it, so as little overhead as possible, as close to zero notifications as I can, plus only the KODI addons it needs. It works well and I have no complaints. Great internet radio as well in an area that is blocked from AM/FM. @dundee2007 is not happy and is going to buy something better, so that's the end of that story.....

    There's your issue already! I hope it's a better one.
    Whatever you buy is your choice but you need to know it is better not just hope! ;)

    I can't comment on the X6 as it's one device I do not have!

    I must agree with you. The X6 is slow overall BUT, for KODI, that box is more than enough. If it was not for the RAM related issue I mentioned in an another thread, the X6 would be pretty good.

    Unless the LibreELEC maintainer gets a X6 box and technical materials (sources), a LibreELEC X6 firmware WON'T happen. In that forum, there are no discussions, I mean NOT at all, directed at the X6 box. I did ask why X6 posts are nowhere to be found over there so that's one post.

    I don't want a box only for Kodi spend 80 euros for a box to run kodi its to much money ,I can run kodi on a computer windows or Mac os based
    You don't see any discussions here because the box is a Crap the threats here are about box problems its all there is.
    To only see television programs series end movies I have a Dreambox 800 HD end one 500 satellite receiver bouht can work on cardsharing .there is no kodi image or settings that can beat the ulimitted channels on satellite receiver

    I bought X6 about 2 years ago and I have no problem using it. It is a good box for kodi.
    It will work better if you know how to optimize it.
