Pros and Cons:

Pros
The only Android DVR box availabe right now.
Free program guide.
DVR video recording quality looks great.
USB ports work great for recording tested on drives up to 2tb.
Cheapest stand alone DVR that I know of right now.
Power button sleeps and awakens the box well.
Remote has very good IR signal. Doesn’t need to be pointed directly at box to work.
Not a Jack of all Trades. More of a Master of TV recording.

Cons:
CPU, the S805 is and entry level processor that can lag sometimes.
Not enough onboard storage to save many apps. (about 3.5GB free).
DVR function is not very user friendly compared to TiVo or satellite DVRs
Included remote needs a gyro mouse if you want to use other apps like a web browser.
Gets warm after extended TV viewing but does not seem to affect the operation
Whatever Android box you get buy a gyro air mouse like this one http://amzn.to/1upwT7N

Hi, I’ve heard of mygica before but their product that’s really interesting is their mygica witv. It’s a small little device that has a reciver for digital tv w/c it can than broadcast via wifi to any android device virtually turning any android or evon ios device to a digital tv. I plan to use it in tandem w/ a minix media player. You can also record shows w/ it on any android device. Could u possiply review the tiny little receiver? Tnx!

Morris S. says:

Is it possible to connect an external USB soundcard to this device attaching audio speaker system?

Michael Scott says:

No optical or 3.5mm output?

jason butler says:

Hey Rivers. Thanks again for another great review. I have been looking for a new DVR setup since i cant get the guide to work in Window Media Center anymore. My question is, can you search for shows and have them automatically record new episodes? Or do you have to set them to record a head of time. Thanks brother. Aloha.

Sue Noble says:

Can you record whatever you have on the screen or does it have to be something that has come through the aerial?

Rob G says:

Thanks Rivers. I wish my Tronsmart Draco AW80 had this capability. I’d be able to get rid of cable TV.

Christopher Trott says:

Do you know if their are OS updates for the box available?

Mr. Total Retard says:

One of the reasons why I bought MyGica is the name.
When translated into my native language (Croatian) it roughly translates to MyPig.

ahpitre says:

Great review. I have some questions :
1) Besides showing the output via HDMI, can I stream to other devices (like a tablet, mobile phone, or a TV via Roku)?
2) Went to the MyGica site but found no information. Will the TV Guide work with channels in PR (Puerto Rico)?
3) When in the EPG screen, or viewing Live TV in full picture mode, how can you go to streaming apps (like Netflix)? Does it have dedicated buttons for this or do you need to press several buttons to do this?

Nick Wiltgen says:

I have been a Tivo user since 2001, just cancelled my service after years of monthly subscription fee’s. I’m looking at this device to replace it and was wondering if it has the ability to pause the live TV feed?

Rob A says:

“ooh yea?” is that gone? it was your signature

Ellinor says:

I’m looking for a kodi media box which one is the best to get right now? It must have strong wifi because I will use it down in my bedroom.

Silent Killa says:

WHAT ADDONS DO YOU USE ON KODI RIVERS I AM USING GENESIS AND IT IS PRETTY GOOD?

Jeff Rejent says:

Problem with off brand Android players is lack of support. Got sick of a buggy box with a crappy update ever 6 months /Year and still on old version of Android. Better off buying a Nvidia Shield console or Nexus player for ongoing support

Greg Dalton says:

Good Stuff.

How about a Top 5 TV box video…or do you get in trouble when you do one of those?

David Mm says:

Finally, a android player review!

XBMCONNECT says:

great video sir…

Silent Killa says:

How does hulu plus work on android tv boxes?
