I saw an old post on this topic (a year ago); but didn't really see an answer. I like the idea of using an android mini to remotely run and manage presentations. Has anyone had success? Which rise player would be recommended?
You have a few options with android. You could go with Cenique in which you have to buy there devices or go with your own android device with My Rise Player. Either one works well with android.
Thanks for the reply. I was considering an HDMI android stick (example - UG007 - 8G mini PC TV Dongle, Dual-Core RK3066 1.4GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB Internal SD storage, Google Android 4.2, HDMI, 1080P, integrated WiFi). Just wanted to confirm I can load a My Rise Player??
Even though it's an ok stick i would start thinking about looking into a rk3188 or rk3288 stick. With the recent changes in some of the widgets, I would consider something that has kitkat on it or can have kitkat on it. This way your not going to be worried with something not working in the future. I have a test app on the store to help with that issue if it comes but it's always safe to buy more recent devices then get stuck on something old.
Thanks William. You have been very helpful. I assume something like this would be better: Andoer MK809II Bluetooth Android 4.4 TV Dongle Stick Mini PC Dual Core RK3066 1G/8G Wifi XBMC. It has android kitkat 4.4.
Great conversation. William, any suggestions or comments on whether a MK903V "stick" would work well, or if the Tronfy Ubox R89 would work well. Stick idea is nice... no power cords, and easily hidden behind the TV. Thanks for any advice.
I actually have the mk903v and works really well. Its also the easiest thing to root as well. You dont even have to flash a new os on it to get root. Also if you look at boxes dont get one with power buttons. I ran into an issue where i got one for testing and realized they dont have a switch to power on automatically on power failure. You have to turn it on everytime it shuts off. Anyway if your looking at a stick the mk903v is fairly nice.
I purchased and used the following at a recent event: MK809III Mini PC TV Box, Android 4.2.2, RK3188 Quad Core It worked well; even when bandwidth was somewhat limited. The restart/reboot was not consistent; but the "publish" updated every time. It seems like this technology is experiencing a surge of improvements. I plan on ordering more in the coming months.
