Yes.

 

 

 

But keep in mind this is experimental. If you're new to things you might want to sit this one out for a bit :) 

 

I want to get Bluetooth stable and in our App Store by the end of Summer

Yes, I will take your advice and wait. I will try logging in, just to see if I can do it.

 

I have put on a few 3rd party repos (think they are called that), a few were good but the last one stuffed up the menus and shoved porn at me, which is not what I was after. I could not get to the power off option. I ended up loading in a backup I did when I first set up the box.

 

I am starting to install the 3rd party stuff again but only ones that have had good feedback on YouTube and I do a backup after each install, just in case. With all the reinstalling, I am getting used to working with the various options.

 

I am just after News channels like CNN, Fox, RT and BBC.

 

I am enjoying the Vero 4K and am pleased it will soon be able to be perchased in NZ. I will steer friends towards it.

If the Vero 4K is ever messed up, it's easy to reinstall from scratch. You just go to osmc.tv/download and use a micro SD card to reimage the device.

 

Best to avoid builds and 'wizards' and use the add-ons you want to use by downloading and installing them individually.

 

Yep -- we've just shipped the first batch of devices to nicegear, so hopefully it will be on sale shortly!

Hey,

 

Thanks for the mention, they are currently clearing customs and should be here this week.

 

I've made the product page live now so you can get a stock notification here if you like:

Cheers,

For anyone who is following this, as at 1230 nicegear still have 7 in stock. At $219 it's worthwhile to not bother with buying it direct, as the current exchange rate makes it around $210NZD.

Ordered mine from the UK last June and the total cost to my door was NZ$213.87 (all inclusive).

 

It is one nice bit of kit.

Nicegear stocking them is awesome! Shame I don't have a use for one just yet (need Netflix and Hulu to really make it work) but once these are out I'll be pretty keen on grabbing one.

 

Thanks @hads and @sn for making this work!

Hey guys,

 

One of our customers who bought a Vero has just got in touch and let us know that we shipped the first ones out with the incorrect power supply.

 

I'll get in touch with anyone that bought one and get the correct power supply sent out, there may be a few days delay shipping orders while I get this sorted.

 

Unfortunately I'm out of the country and didn't get to inspect the stock before they shipped as we wanted to get them out to everyone as quick as possible. Apologies for the inconvenience.

 

Cheers,

 

Hadley

Just to follow up, we now have the correct power supplies so can resume shipping. We've sent out the correct power supplies to anyone who previously purchased today. Thanks for your patience.

I'm interested in purchasing to replace now very old WDTV player but have a few questions

DTS playback/ decoding ? I'd connect this box direct to my tv which doesn't have a dts decoder for my MKV films.

24p playback. My tv supports 24p playback through my wdtv player and anything else (30p or whatever sky broadcasts at ) looks weird.

As best I can tell, W10 is purely to blame here, it is very broken. Try installing the SMB server application from the OSMC add ons. Secondly, I think it is just the discovery of shares that is the issue, you should be able to put the exact address in of the shared folder and add it that way. That is the only way I could get it to work myself. I have tried having homegroups, no homegroups, master browser is set on my PI, SMBv1 etc etc, and still I struggle to get anything (not just the Vero) to see my W10 shares.
