Box for Zattoo?

Hi guys.

We want a box that we can connect to the TV (that comes with a remote) that supports Zattoo.

We have a smart TV but it's a Sony and Zattoo don't have an app for it.

We've seen the videoweb box, however it has an awful lot of negative reviews, mostly saying that it crashes constantly.

I've been looking at stuff like the Boxee but apparently that doesn't support Zattoo either.

Looked at an AppleTV box but we don't have any other Apple hardware to use the AirPlay function.

Any ideas?

What about the SwissTV box, does that have a built in browser that supports flash?

Re: Box for Zattoo?

There is a Zattoo app on the Google Play store so theoretically pretty much any Android box would work for you - I wonder if any of our members have such a device?

You would need to Jailbreak the Apple TV to get this sort of content, I'm pretty sure you could pick one up from eBay/Ricardo if you really wanted one. As the Apple TV plugs straight into HDMI you wouldn't need to use AirPlay.

Good luck with your search.

Re: Box for Zattoo?

Hi,

you can get anyone of those two boxes from Comag to do that, they are android based and have the ability to record. Saw the one without the tuner at real in Germany for EUR79.

they also have this one now different brand but same functions http://onlineshop.real.de/Smart-TV-B.../0002027001001

suggest you look at ebay, plenty of sellers have those kind of boxes for as low as USD35.

good luck
