    xbmc is just an app for android and works really well on an a10 chip..navi x is available for droid without xbmc.
    if it was me, i would buy a mk802 based stick and run navi x as an app without xbmc, or for roughly the same price, you can get a raspberry pi and have a dedicated xbmc machine

    a10 chip android boxes just install xbmc as an app, so its like installing any other app, same as x navi.

    the gbox midnight.. hmmm just for xbmc? i personally wouldnt bother when buying a raspberry pi, case, keyboard etc would be so much cheaper

    dhgate, zliexpress, ebay, just google for allwinner a10.

    pi > https://export.farnell.com/jsp/raspi...sp?&country=GB theres one thats already encased for ?31.50.

    all you need to add is an ethernet cable or wifi dongle, hdmi cable, sd card and a wireless kb/mouse something like this> Xenta Nano Wireless Multimedia 56 Key Keyboard with.. | Ebuyer.com or you can use the xbmc remote app and use your phone to control it.
    all the above should work out to about ?50 or thereabouts, and it will be able to do so much more. for instance one sd card could have xbmc software on, take it out and pop in another sd card with a fully fledged linux distro on..
