Best Octa Core Android Streaming TV Boxes

Having a small android box to stream content to your TV is one of those things everyone should have.
 
From cable cord-cutters to simply wanting a better TV experience there are many options to choose from.
 
There have been a introduction of a barrage of small android TV boxes these last few years.
 
Starting with the Dual Core and currently the popular Quad Core option, Octa Core boxes have began to be introduced.
 
As with any android box what is planned to be done with it, along with internal network setup will always need to be taken into account.
 
For example I install Kodi into all my android boxes and is mainly what I use it for.
 
Someone else may want to use Hulu, Netflix or simply want to use the internet from their TV.

    I need to attach a Yagi antenna to mine to get access to a hotspot across the street so need one with an external removable antenna. Also, need one with WAP (Wifi Access Point) that shares that wifi inside my place. Many have these two features, but none of these seem to . Ideally want Octa core and Lolipop 5.1, but given that I’m connecting to a hotspot, am I going to benefit from the faster box?

      Trying to stream video content over WiFi within a house can be challenging at times, from across the street would be almost monumental. A Yagi antenna would be good at receiving a signal but cannot transmit back so when you click a link nothing will happen. A better option would be a outdoor WiFi range extender such as Ubiquiti which allows you to keep adding small units to a wireless network to extend it. Here is a link for more https://www.wirelesshack.org/top-outdoor-wifi-range-extenders-2016.html

      I would test out Kodi and the network with a laptop for free first before investing in a android box.

      Just make a cantenna and use an old router as an access point, connecting it to the router across the street… connecting a yagi or cantenna, or any external antenna for that matter would be a pain in the ass and would most likely really hurt performance more than anything. Also, you would need a very short feedline to the antenna too, as the android boxes wifi is EXTREMELY low power and any feedline losses would screw you big time.

      better to just use an old router that has an external antenna port (sma, tnc) with a cantenna as an access point..
