    Xbmc is the biggest waste of time. You spend hours tryin to get any live stream going.
    90% of the add ons go through the motions only to produce nothing….. ‘Working’ err no.
    Like any hack it lasts a week at best. Rant over

    I avoided having to even mess with figuring out how to add XBMC add ons buy getting a SkystreamX. It came with XBMC 12.2 Frodo already installed and all of the good Add Ons were already preloaded onto the box. Great product. Plug and Play.
