A common problem with the Minix Neo X7 is XBMC. XBMC is available out of the box although it has major issues. Although since Minix released firmware updates very regularly issues with XBMC might be gone in the future. This issue is very small since the Minix Neo X7 can do so much more other then XBMC and if you really want an Android TV box for the sole purpose of XBMC then you should go for the G-box Midnight MX2 TV box which is tailor made for XBMC.
