I am thinking of getting a MK808B to run as a media streamer. If this isnt the correct section to ask questions in please move this and let me know where.

But if so I was wondering if you could answer the following?

Im looking for a good alternative for my Dad to watch streaming movies/tv from his room

Hes not greatly tech savvy. I like the ideas of the MK808 but to find any concise information is hard it seems.

How easy is it to get working from a phone, meaning using his smart phone to control and be able to type from his phone?

Will he be able to use the full website version of Hulu Plus?

How hard is it to flash a new ROM? I see Finless mentioned a lot, Im assuming this is probably the best rom for the type of device?

He will probably only really use it for watching netflix and hulu, maybe the occasional web search.

Now if I were to get one for me however, how well does it handle uhhh lets say "adult situations" I just got a Note 3, how will it stack up?

Any info would be great, what experiences do you guys have personally with android sticks?

Thanks Folks
