    1. Android TV box Dolamee X2 based on Amlogic S905X2 w/ expendable 2.5" hard drive. $110.

    HINT: To get stable work you need to disable HDMI CEC in Android Settings on the device. Disabling HDMI CEC will prevent device going to sleep.


    2. Android TV box NVIDIA Shield TV. $190. The most powerful solution available at the moment for Android.

    Demo server is running on NVIDIA Shield TV and is available at https://demo.tinycammonitor.com:8083/ (username: demo, password: demo)

    A few questions.

    Does TinyCam have to be in the foreground or can other apps be used while the NVR is recording?
    Can recordings be viewed remotely for a mobile app also running Tinycam?

    I'm assuming motion alerts work like normal.

    1. The app can be in background. You need to use Background Mode in the app.
    2. Recordings can be viewed remotely. But only via web browser at the moment.
