The Xtreamer Prodigy Review. Completeness of facilities and competitive prices makes it so compelling Android player. Xtreamer Prodigy is one player device that is intended for entry level consumers. Users generally expect such a capable player at an affordable price. Let’s see what its performance.
As with any digital player, Prodigy is ready with a variety of output connections including RCA, component, optical audio and HDMI 1.4 is ideal for watching movies Full-HD 3D. Other available ports are USB host, USB 3.0 (type B – to a computer), card reader, and gigabit LAN.
Wi-Fi is now also available with an additional antenna to amplify the signal reception. Interestingly, for disk storage compartments, 3.5″ designed to be easily removable to plug into the player. The trick, pull the tray to remove the hard drive.
In addition to functioning as a player, Prodigy also function like an Android Box. You can add apps from the market, called an App Center. Unfortunately, the application is not available on the market, is forced to be downloaded (from the computer) and installed manually. And, as Prodigy uses a MIPS-based system chip (not ARM), its application is limited counted. No wonder if some popular applications in gadget can not be installed on this player.
Using the player on Prodigy countless fun with support for a variety of audio-video formats, including Blu-ray ISO. There are also additional options with a digital tuner for DVB-T digital broadcasts, including recording the shows to your hard disk. For the exercise control, the remote control supplied with a very diverse menu. To be able to access the Android system is more convenient, also included a wireless keyboard with touchpad like a tiny mouse.
Despite the audio-video looked fun, these devices seem less satisfactory for displaying 3D graphics and applications. Realtek RTL 1186 chip is a lot of multimedia to adopt new technologies, but less ideal for running Android applications on the ARM architecture. Oh yes, some bugs that we had encountered it can be minimized through firmware updates, currently at version 3.0.5.
So far, Xtreamer Prodigy is quite complete and comfortable as a multimedia player. This is compounded by the Android system, thus making work activities and entertainment together in one device. The combination of facilities and affordable mainstay product.

I had the worst experience in my life with Xtreamer Prodigy Black, I don’t recommend it for anyone, it is a big waste of money, I changed from TViX Xroid A1 to Xtreamer because I fell in love with the design and all the specs they advertise about on their website, but nothing is true, maybe it has those specs but they don’t work properly so it is just a marketing tool, anyways I bought it online from the main company site, after I received it and opened the box, the switch button was damaged from the inside, I contacted the company immediately and informed them about the problem, they replied after 5 or 6 days telling me if you want to replace it, it is going to take a very long time, could you please open the machine and fix the switch from the inside yourself (Oh My God, that was the answer of the company to me!!!!!!), anyway I did fixed it myself by opening the machine before I got their reply because I decided that if I can not fix it I am going to throw it without paying more money on shipping back the item.
The network speed through the GB Ethernet of the machine is very bad (Note: my router is Linksys EA4500 which is a very good router and internet speed Fiber 100MB) which means the machine GB Ethernet is really bad, there is no way you can watch a movie over 15 GB through the network, the screen will move like a robot, freezing all the way through.
If you want to use the android apps, it is even worse because it will take like forever to open any page, games are very very slow so it will make you hate the games, I can say in general no useful android Apps.
You have to set the clock and date every time you turn your machine on and off, I tried every single set up out there on their forums but nothing worked.
I spent days and days online just reading in their forums to make this machine work properly but no success, In my opinion this machine is an expensive piece of crap with no support from the company, you have to wait 5 to 6 days to get an answer for your problem and the answer will never solve your problem so why to waste your time and money.
Yes you are right. The Xtreamer Prodigy is a rotten unit. As media player it is OK. The function for Android Apps is a disaster.
The unit deserves to be trashed.
