DHL has always been very good in my experience. 3 working days at most for all my parcels delivered via them to Hamilton.




Do whatever you want to do man.

OUYA was delivered today to my house. It was not DHL that took 10 days to deliver it from Hong Kong. OUYA's distributor had the tracking number etc printed and emailed it to me but only gave DHL my package along with several other packages of OUYA's to them at the same time just 3 days ago.

I like the build quality of the OUYA itself. Controller not so much. I really hope OUYA supports HDMI-CEC for XBMC.

Thats good to hear, still waiting for mine.



As for the controller, if you don't like it you can use PS3 controllers apparently. Its what I intend to do.

Finally got my "myouyaiscoming" email.

yeah I got the same email.

Said i was receiving an AU plug (not the american plug as someone else in this forum received) but it didnt say my second controller I ordered was shipping either.

So maybe they're shipping those later? (waiting to hear back from ouya support)

Same thing here, they told me it may ship later, they are doing that to push the consoles out ASAP. I'm a bit over it really, all the excitement has waned now. At least we'll get Ouyas in better shape firmware wise, I suppose.

I kickstarted in September last year. 

My email states "1 x Gift-Ouya Gaming System KIT e_ROW + 1 add. SP cont (SP-20-H01)" So I guess the '+1 add. SP cont' means my additional controller is part of my order.

my email says

1 x Gift-Ouya Gaming System N (90E2-0V10010)
1 x Gift- OUYA Game Console AU plug (PL002)


so no additional controller there (although checking my paypal receipt I did pay for an additional controller, although the receipt doesn't list what was purchased, just the total...)

I'm assuming they're just trying to rush them out.

That's basically what they told me in the reply to my custmoer support email about the second controller I'd ordered. At this point though I'll be honest and I'd much rather just receive it and both controllers together. I mean what is another few weeks, given its only about 6 weeks away from a year since I backed it?

I'd feel the same if I weren't planning to use it for gaming.

How does it access Netflix, is it using a Netflix provided app or is it using the now defunct web api?

What other streaming services are available or are you planning to just use XBMC for streaming?




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

 


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.
