A couple years back a company named TBS, mostly known for their DTV hardware, released a mini PC styled thing. It's called the TBS2910 Matrix and was marketed mostly as a Kodi box.
Sadly it doesn't seem the product made the sales necessary to keep the company interested - which in my view is a shame since it's got some interesting hardware features:
Quad-core i.MX6 CPU (1GHz)
2GB DDR3 Ram
16GB eMMC Storage
SATA connector with 12V power, capable of powering a 3.5" HDD
On-board 2.4GHz Wifi
Gigabit ethernet (likely limited to 400Mbps or so)
3 USB 2.0 ports + 1 mini USB otg port
1 full-size SD slot, 1 microSD slot
HDMI, analog and optical audio out
Ir receiver, HDMI-CEC support
Software support is predictably bad, I don't think it's gotten an official update in at least a year. There's an old Ubuntu distro available and an old non-Elec Kodi build.Thankfully vpeter, a LibreElec dev, has released updated LibreElec builds for it, available at the tbs forums.
I love this board. I use it as my Kodi box connected to the TV, with a mPCIe Wifi card to boost network speed, and for most purposes it works great. I don't expect anybody to work on an armbian release for a dead board of course, though the hardware features might allow for some cool use options.
It's available for Â£50 at amazon.co.uk, which includes the plastic box and a 12V power plug.
